WSU remains unbeaten

 

The Washington State women’s soccer team is still unbeaten after a 4-0 win over UC Irvine (5-4-0) in Irvine, Calif., on Sunday.

• Alyssa Pease scored the match’s first goal in the 20th minute and an own goal gave Idaho (1-7-0) the edge it would need to notch the Vandals’ first win with a 3-1 decision over Grand Canyon (1-7-0) in a Western Athletic Conference opener in Moscow.

• Gonzaga (3-4-1) had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Nevada (2-4-3) in Spokane despite a 29-8 edge in shots.

• Tiara Pajimola’s sixth goal of the season in the 63rd minute gave Whitworth (5-2-1, 2-1-1 Northwest) a 1-0 win over Willamette (2-5, 0-3) in Salem.

Men’s soccer

Lars Ludwigs and Conner Bevans scored to give Gonzaga (4-2-0) a 2-0 victory over Wisconsin (5-1-1), ranked 25th nationally, at the UIC Soccer Classic in Chicago.
