PULLMAN, WA - OCTOBER 24: Washington State women’s soccer celebrates senior night against UCLA, resulting in a 1-1 draw Jack Ellis/CougCenter

For the fourth time in five games, the Washington State soccer team found itself in overtime. But, this time on Sunday, the Cougars came away with the win. Margie Detrizio scored in overtime, her second goal of the game, to seal a 3-2 win for the Cougs.

Not only did that goal give the Cougs the win against the Beavers, but it also capped a sweep of the Oregon schools. The Cougars beat the Oregon Ducks 1-0 on Friday.

The Cougars will wrap their regular season against Washington on Friday at 6 p.m. PT.

The WSU volleyball team also had a victorious Halloween as the Cougars swept USC in three sets. After failing to close out the UCLA Bruins in a five-set loss on Friday, the Cougars made sure there was no comeback on Sunday. Leading 2-0, the Cougars dominate the third set 25-14 to secure the victory.

The Cougars nearly knocked off No. 16 UCLA on Friday, but the Bruins won the final two sets to complete the comeback.

Washington State returns home this weekend to host the Arizona schools. They will take on Arizona on Friday before closing the weekend against Arizona State on Sunday.

A Grip on Sports: The margin was a little surprising, but WSU win wasn't a huge shock if you've been watching Jake Dickert work | The Spokesman-Review
We were not surprised by the Cougars’ win yesterday. After all, we sort of guaranteed it in this space on Friday and Saturday. At the very least we expected WSU to cover the more than two-touchdown spread (we saw ASU by 15½ during the week though it was as high as 17 points in some spots).
