PULLMAN, Wash. - Micaela Castain's goal in overtime pushed Washington State past Washington 2-1 in Pacific-10 Conference women's soccer at Lower Soccer Field, Friday.

Castain's goal was her second of the match and came at 98:12. The Washington State (7-13-0, 2-7-0 Pac-10) freshman forward dribbled around two defenders into the box on the left side before firing a shot inside the far post beating Washington (11-8-1, 4-5-0 Pac-10) goalkeeper Jorde LaFontaine-Kussman.

With the victory, the Cougars are 5-0-2 in their last-seven matches against the Huskies, their longest-current unbeaten streak against any conference opponent.

"To win our last match of the season is tremendous for us," Cougar Head Coach Matt Potter said. "It means we have another senior class that leaves without losing to Washington."

The Huskies took a 1-0 lead in the 62nd minute on a goal by Kate Deines off a free kick near midfield. The Cougars tied the match late in the 84th minute when freshman Eileen Maes headed a ball into the box that was collected by Castain who beat LaFontaine-Kussman to the far left post.

Washington State defeated Washington in overtime for the first time since Nov. 3, 2000 when Kim Morgan's goal in the second extra session gave the Cougars a 1-0 victory over the second-ranked Huskies in Pullman...first come-from-behind win in school history for Washington State over Washington...redshirt-senior midfielder Mallory Fox and senior goalkeeper Meghan Berlingo (injured), defender Ashley Johnson and forward Emma Stolz all made their final appearance in a Cougar uniform.
