LOS ANGELES - WSU keeper Katie Hultin made 10 saves Sunday, leading the Cougars to a 0-0 double overtime tie with No. 4 UCLA (14-1-1, 4-0-1 Pac-10) at Drake Stadium. Washington State moves to 8-7-2 overall and 1-4-1 in conference play.
UCLA came out on the offensive, out shooting the Cougars 18-1 in the first 90 minutes of play. The Bruins launched a barrage of shots in the 75th minute but neither team could find the back of the net as regulation time expired.
The two teams continued to struggle through two 10-minute overtime periods as Hultin made four crucial stops to keep the Cougars alive. UCLA keeper Valarie Henderson was tested just once as WSU threatened in the second overtime period.
The match marked Hultin's fourth shutout of the season and the 18th of her career, tying her for first atop the Cougar career shutout list.
Washington State was out shot 27-3 overall with Carmen Anderson, Haley Thompson-Miller and Sasha Baines each contributing one shot for the Cougars. Kara Lang led the Bruins offensive efforts with eight shots.
The Cougars return to Lower Soccer Field for their final home conference matches of the season hosting Oregon State Friday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. and Oregon Sunday, Oct. 30 at noon.
