SEATTLE – Oregon finished off the opening day of the Husky Invitational Friday with a 5-0 win over Portland, bouncing back from 5-0 losses earlier in the day to No. 15 Hawai'i and host Washington.
 
How It Happened: The Ducks responded after a pair of losses to start the day by dominating in a 5-0 victory against Portland. Delaney Hopen and Savannah Siegrist put up the first point of the match with a 21-13, 21-16 win at the No. 4 spot before Josie Cole and Anastasia Lima followed shortly after with a 21-12, 21-12 victory at the No. 2 spot to make it 2-0.
 
Batia Rotshtein and Abby Plevin clinched the win for Oregon by making it 3-0 with a 21-15, 21-10 win at the No. 5 spot.
