Back on the road for the remainder of their season, Cougar soccer (9-5-2, 2-4-2 Pac-12) is set to take on Oregon State (3-8-5, 0-6-2 Pac-12) at 7 p.m. Thursday in Corvallis, Oregon, and Oregon (0-14-2, 0-8 Pac-12) at 1 p.m. Sunday in Eugene, Oregon.

Coming off of a 1-1 draw against Utah, WSU will seek to extend its five-game winning streak over Oregon State. The Cougs hold the historical advantage over the Beavs at 19-10-3 all-time.

Oregon State’s McKenna Martinez, a junior forward, currently leads the Pac-12 in shots on the season with a total of 73. 

WSU also holds the all-time record over Oregon at 15-5-9. The Ducks remain winless this season in both conference and non-conference play. Boasting one of the youngest rosters in the nation, a lack of experience has been Oregon’s greatest challenge this year with a total of fifteen freshman players. The Ducks have no senior players and just one fifth-year.

However, Oregon goalie Maddy Goldberg has the most saves in the Pac-12 on the season with 75. In the Ducks’ matchup against No. 5 Stanford last Sunday, Goldberg put up 15 saves, nearly doubling her previous record of 8 and tying for most in a single match in Oregon’s program history.

After outshooting Utah 22-8 last Sunday, WSU’s offensive line will be a key factor in their hopes for success at the Oregon schools. With three goals on the season, freshman midfielder Reagen Kotschau found a late equalizer and put up a team-high of six shots against Utah. Other forces include Margie Detrizio, who has continued to rewrite WSU’s record book this season with an ever-improving number of career goals, assists and points.

With both Oregon teams remaining winless in Pac-12 play, this week will be a huge chance for WSU to notch another two victories into this season’s record. Head coach Todd Shulenberger will be chasing a career total of 100 wins, currently sitting just two shy at 98.

The broadcast of both games will be available on Pac-12 Live.
