The Cougars hosted a small conference team this weekend that should be no match talent-wise, and the WSU women’s soccer team understood the assignment. The Cougars scored early and often on Sunday en route to a 7-0 victory against Hawaii. At least one program gets it.
The Cougars blew the match open early with three goals in the first 10 minutes. Elyse Bennett scored back-to-back goals in the second half, just minutes apart. And the Cougars still added two more goals for good measure.
WSUCougars.com titled their recap “Goals on Goals on Goals” which is as accurate as it gets.
Washington State scored so much the highlight video of just all the goals is nearly three minutes long. You can watch it in all of its glory below.

In total dominating fashion, the Cougar defense allowed just three total shots and only one shot on goal. In comparison, the Cougar offense tallied 28 shots, 16 of which were on goal. Hawaii recorded nine saves on the day and still allowed seven goals.
That is the Cougars’ third shutout in four games this season.
There is no guarantee Saturdays will be very enjoyable this fall, but at least we have the Cougar soccer team to save the weekend on Sunday.
