PULLMAN, Wash. - Jenna Richardson's first half goal lifted No. 12 Oregon State past Washington State 1-0 in Pacific-10 Conference soccer at Lower Soccer Field, Friday.
Richardson's game-winner game in the 35th minute when she dribbled past two Washington State (6-10-0, 1-4-0 Pac-10) defenders and beat Ariana Byrd from eight yards out to give the Beavers (12-1-1) their fourth-straight victory to open conference play.
"It was a hard-fought game like we expected," WSU Head Coach Matt Potter said. "We did not do enough of the little things that it takes to win and Oregon State had one moment of magic that turned out to be the difference."
The Cougars host Oregon, Sunday at noon.
