Cougars Drop Pac-10 Leading Huskies 1-0 In Double Overtime

November 7, 1998

PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State women's soccer squad stole a 1-0 upset victory in sudden death overtime against cross-state rival and the Pacific-10 Conference leading Washington Huskies Saturday afternoon at the Cougar Soccer Field to close out the 1998 season.

Cougar scoring leader Deka DeWitt, (Auburn, Wash.) battled between the Husky defense to nail a shot from six yards out to win the game for WSU in the 116th minute. DeWitt, who had not scored in the last five matches and halted a Cougar scoreless streak of three games, knocked Washington out of the top spot in the Pacific-10 Conference.

The victory gives the Cougars a final season record of 6-10-3 overall and 4-4-1 in the Pacific-10) while marking the second overtime win this year. The Huskies fall to 10-8-1 overall and 6-3-0 in the Pac-10.

Goalkeeper Lindsey Jorgensen (North Bend, Wash.) fought off 16 shots by Washington and made seven saves to earn her sixth shut out of the season. Senior defender Lynsey Coffey (Santa Rosa, Calif.) saved a Husky scoring opportunity in the second overtime period with a slide tackling play on Anna Biddle who had broken away down the right flank in front of the goal.

Caroline Putz led the Washington offense with four shots while Tami Bennett added three.

"Our effort was huge today," said WSU head coach Dan Tobias. "I really wanted all the seniors on the field when the game ended. The saying is you want to leave it all on the field and for those guys combined with the people that will be the future of the club, I thought that was a fitting ending."
