STANFORD, Calif. - For the second straight season, the Washington State women's soccer team suffered a 1-0 overtime loss at Stanford.
Emily Burt, Stanford's leading scorer, nailed the only goal of the match with just 48 seconds expired in the sudden-death overtime period. Burt broke the 0-0 tie when she took a pass from teammate Shauna Itri and knocked the game winner from inside the six-yard box past Cougar freshman goalkeeper Shannon Wilson (Las Vegas, Nevada).
Last season the Cougars (7-7-0, 2-3-0 Pac-10) dropped a 1-0 overtime decision to Stanford (7-7-0, 2-2-0 Pac-10). Washington State has never scored a goal against the Cardinal while playing at Stanford's Harry Maloney Field.
This Sunday the Cougars face the California Golden Bears (6-7-1, 1-3-0), who defeated visiting Washington 2-0 for their first Pac-10 win of 1997.
