Cougars Blank USC 2-0 To Open Pac-10 Conference Play

October 9, 1998

PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State women's soccer squad (3-6-2 overall, 1-0-0 Pacific-10) opened Pacific-10 Conference play with a 2-0 victory over USC (6-5-1 overall, 0-1-0 Pacific-10) Friday, Oct. 9 at the Cougar Soccer Field. The shutout broke a four-game losing streak and was the first ever Cougar win versus the Trojans.

Senior midfielder Randi Glas (Grand Forks, N.D.) put the Cougars on the board in the 37th minute after receiving a pass from freshman Lindsey Millspaugh (Kent, Wash.). Trojan goalkeeper Karin Puccinelli came out of the goal, missed the ball and Glas found the open net from the top of the penalty box.

WSU held the Trojans scoreless through a physical second half and sealed the victory in the 89th minute. Sophomore Deka DeWitt (Auburn, Wash.) served a through pass to senior Kimberly Schelpf (Ocean, N.J.) in the Cougar defensive half. Schelpf broke away and beat a defender and the drawn out keeper to score.

Cougar goalkeeper Lindsey Jorgensen (North Bend, Wash.) made five saves and earned her third shutout of the season. WSU out shot the Trojans 14 to six, while the Cougar defense allowed only one shot on goal by USC in the second half.

"Effort wise this was our best game of the year," said WSU Head Coach Dan Tobias. "Everyone has the ability out there but we haven't put in a good consistent 90 minute effort. And, today we did. We battled and USC is a very good team. I have a lot of respect for how Jimmy (Millinder) runs his program. This was a good way for us to start our 1998 Pac-10 season."

The Cougars continue Homecoming Weekend play when they face 18th ranked UCLA (11-1-1) Sunday, Oct.11 at noon on the Cougar Soccer Field. The match will be shown by Fox Sports Northwest on a tape delayed basis, Monday, Oct. 12 at 2 p.m.
