The 21st ranked Washington State women’s soccer team needed overtime on Sunday to keep their loss column empty as they beat Grand Canyon University 1-0 in Pullman. The Cougars (2-0) defense was stellar as they allowed the Lopes (0-2) just two shots during the entire match with their first coming in the 84th minute. The two shots is tied for the second fewest allowed in a game in Cougar history.
Freshman Molly Myers scored her first collegiate goal and the game winner in the 92nd minute off a cross from senior Maddy Haro. She had a chance to put the Cougars up earlier in the match when she hit the post in the 71st minute after beating the defenders on a pass from mid field.

The Cougars had plenty of chances to find the back of the net throughout the night as they had 24 shots with eight being on goal. Myers, who came off the bench, Haro, and Mak Gomera-Stevens all had two chances while Morgan Weaver and Brianna Alger each had one shot on goal. They also managed to dominate the Lopes in corners as they won that battle 14-1 throughout the night.
The Cougars will look to keep the loss column blank on Friday as they head to Minnesota to face Iowa at 2 p.m. before facing the host team on Sunday at 11 a.m.
