GU women edged by Cal State Fullerton

 
Sankey regains lead

 University of Washington tailback Bishop Sankey, who rushed for 161 yards in the Huskies’ 31-13 victory over Arizona on Saturday, is once again the nation’s leading rusher.

 The Gonzaga Prep grad first took the top spot with a 200-yard game against Illinois two weeks ago, but slipped to third last week after carrying just four times for 77 yards against Idaho State.

 Sankey is averaging 151.8 ypg through four games. Antonio Andrews of Western Kentucky is second at 145.4 through five games.

The Gonzaga women’s soccer team saw two streaks snapped in a 2-1 loss to Cal State Fullerton on Sunday in Fullerton, Calif.

The Titans scored in the 29th minute to take a 1-0 lead and end the Bulldogs’ streak of 296 minutes without allowing a goal. Cal State Fullerton’s second goal, which snapped a 1-all tie in the 74th minute, marked the first time an opponent had scored multiple goals against Gonzaga in eight matches.

Sila Tuiofea scored her first goal of the season for GU (4-5-1) in the 71st minute, with an assist going to Mikayla Anderson.

The Pirates (5-4-1, 2-3-1 NWC) return to the pitch Saturday at Pacific Lutheran.

• Alyssa Lloyd opened the scoring, giving Idaho a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute, but the Vandals didn’t find the back of the net again in a 2-1 Western Athletic Conference loss in overtime to Missouri-Kansas City in Moscow. Taylor Bare scored twice for the Kangaroos.

Idaho (2-8, 2-1 WAC) visits Utah Valley on Friday.

• Audrianna Woods scored in the 55th minute off a rebound to give North Idaho College a 1-0 victory over Clark College on a wet afternoon in Vancouver, Wash. The Cardinals improved to 3-5-2 and play Salt Lake Community College on Friday in Coeur d’Alene.
