With classes starting Monday in Pullman the Cougar Women's soccer team looked to start the school year off with a win against a rival and to continue their early success. And they did so with a 3-1 victory in front of 1,232 people, the third largest crowd in WSU history.
First year coach Todd Shulenberger looked to continue his winning ways on Sunday against the Idaho Vandals but the game had to be postponed until Monday evening due to air quality.
The Cougars struck early and never looked back after a own-goal header that found the back of the net after just 9 minutes of play. Kailiana Johnson crossed the ball which was then deflected off an Idaho player and into the net to give the Cougs a 1-0 lead over the Vandals. Kaitlyn Johnson wanted to get in on the scoring and she put one in at the 28 minute mark off an assist from Kelsee Crenshaw. Less than 5 minutes later the Cougars found the back of the net again when Beau Bremer scored off a Tia Gavin assist to make it 3-0.
Idaho tried to make it a game when they scored on a header with just under 10 minutes left in the first half. Nothing more came from either side of the pitch and the Cougars walked off the Lower Soccer field in Pullman with a 3-1 victory making them 2-0 on the season.
The Women's soccer team started their season last Friday with a win against the Seattle University Redhawks in a 3-1 match.
Shulenberger and company will look to move to 3-0 when they head to Boise to take on the Broncos on Sunday 8/30 at noon.
