The women's soccer team recorded their 14th win of the season with  3-1 victory over the Washington Huskies Thursday night. The win in the regular season finale was also the Cougs 7th in conference play and guaranteed them at least a 5th place finish in the Pac-12.

After falling behind 1-0 in the 11th minute it didn't take WSU long to even the score up. Junior forward Kaitlyn Johnson scored her team leading 7th goal of the season in the 17th minute to tie the game at 1 goal apiece.

The Cougs first half attack didn't stop there though, as senior Cara Wegner snuck one by the keeper with this deft touch in the 27th minute.

That wasn't the end of the scoring for WSU, however, as sophomore defender Kelsee Crenshaw put the game away with an insurance goal in the 83rd minute. While it was the last goal of the evening, it was certainly not the least. I mean, who doesn't love a goalie assist?

WSU's 14 wins on the season ties a school record for the most in a season. WSU should have a chance to break that, assuming they are given a bid to the upcoming NCAA tournament. The final Pac-12 standings won't be decided until tomorrow, but if Stanford continues its undefeated run in conference play then the Cougs will finish fourth. The Cardinal will take on Cal and the Golden Bears are tied with WSU for 5th in the conference.

Look at this -- no week-night games, six Saturday games, and three games that kick off at 1:30 p.m. or earlier (way earlier, in the case of Stanford at Colorado). If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was 1995. But you know better.
