WOMEN'S SOCCER TOPS OREGON 3-0
Oct. 16, 2004
Eugene, Ore. - Oregon State claimed its first Pac-10 victory of the season Friday night in Eugene, beating the Ducks 3-0. The win raises the Beavers to 7-7-0 on the year and 1-2 in conference, while bringing Oregon to 3-9-1 overall and 0-3 in the Pac-10.
'We had a good performance today,' OSU head coach Steve Fennah said. Rival games are always very nervous and close. It was exciting to come away with a win today, especially a convincing win'.
Alyssa Blackwell scored the first goal for the Beavers in the 43rd minute of the game, giving OSU a 1-0 lead going into the second half.
Despite being outshot 6-4 by Oregon during the second half, the Beavers were able to score twice against the Ducks.
Then, OSU's Kelli Washburn came back for the Beavers in the 28th minute of the game scoring off an assist from Jen Crump. Crump passed to Washburn who shot the ball from seven yards out past Oregon's goalkeeper, solidifying a win for the Beavers.
Carter and Washburn's goals marked each player's first time scoring for the Beavers this season.
'We started our Pac-10 season last week with a tough task of going down and playing in L.A., and we came up short. Now we have a boost from this win and can look forward to two home games as well. We obviously gain confidence going into this weekend'.
The Beavers return to Corvallis this weekend, marking their first game at home since their Pac-10 season began. OSU is taking on Washington at 3 p.m. on Friday, and Washington State at noon on Sunday at Lorenz Field at Valley Stadium.
