PULLMAN — Freshman forward Margerie Detrizio scored for Washington State, but Oregon was able to get the equalizer and came away with a 1-1 tie in a Pac-12 match Sunday at Lower Soccer Field.
The Cougars (6-3-2, 2-2-2 Pac-12) remained unbeaten at home in six matches, and had the run of the play in the two overtime periods, but the Ducks (5-5-5, 3-4-3) did what they needed to do in the second half to find the tying goal. The tie snapped WSU's three-game winning streak but extended Oregon's unbeaten string to nine matches.
On a corner kick late in the first half, senior Sydney Pulver booted a ball that found the head of sophomore Mykiaa Minniss, who re-directed the ball toward the Oregon goal. Detrizio found the ball and flicked it past goaltender Leah Freeman, who was out of position on the play to give Washington State a 1-0 edge.
The Cougars continued to press in the second half, but Oregon had an opportunity that missed in the 69th minute. The Ducks then used that momentum as True Dydasco took a pass from Zoe Hasenauer and converted to the far post two minutes later to tie it at 1.
Freshman Alyssa Gray looked like she was going to give WSU the lead back in the 78th minute, but a defensive save stymied that attempt.
In the second overtime, Gray also had another shot on what looked to be a wide-open net, but Freeman stopped it in the final minute.
The Cougars had four of their 15 shots in the two 10-minute overtime periods, and had four corner opportunities but couldn't get the winner. WSU had eight corners in the game, tying a conference mark for the season.
Freeman finished with three saves, and senior Marissa Zuchetto also had three stops for WSU.
The Cougars finish the regular season at 6 p.m. Friday at home against Washington.
