Aaqila McLyn recorded her first assist of the season on Weaver’s goal, a shot to the far post in the 61st minute.

Rachel Thompson had nine saves to earn the shutout for the Cougars (8-0-0). WSU set the program record for most consecutive wins to begin a season.

The Cougars’ ranking is their highest in the coaches’ poll since 1993.
