The Washington State University women’s soccer team left the field in Boise, Idaho, Thursday with a double overtime draw.

Weather was an issue during the game, and the start time was pushed back 30 minutes due to a lightning storm.

At the beginning of the 14th minute, another 30 minute lightning storm took place, which delayed the match for a second time.

Similar to the team’s previous three matches, the Cougars continued to be the aggressors in the game, outshooting the Boise State Broncos 6-3 in the first half.

The Cougars were also the beneficiaries of the only corner kick of the half.

Field conditions continued to worsen during the second half, which made it tough for either team to come up with scoring opportunities.

With the score notched at 0-0 entering the overtime periods, darkness became an issue because of the absence of park lights.

The Broncos would end the game with an 11-10 edge in shots.

WSU redshirt junior goalkeeper Gurveen Clair recorded five saves during the match, lowering her goals against average to 0.27 per match.

According to Washington State Athletics, WSU has won its last eight matches dating back to last season.

The Cougars have also not given up a goal in over 259 minutes, the last of which came as a result of a converted penalty kick by Seattle University in the first game of the season.

WSU takes on the Weber State Wildcats next, a team they hold a 3-0 record all time against.

In a 2010 matchup against Weber State, senior forward Micaela Castain recorded a hat trick, as well as a goal in a 2011 meeting.

Weber State comes into play with a 2-0-1 record, including a victory over the Idaho Vandals. The Cougars beat the Vandals 5-0 last Friday.

WSU will stay in Boise over the weekend and take on the Weber State Sunday at 11 a.m.
