It did not take long for the 21st-ranked [or 22nd-ranked, depending on which national poll you want to believe] Washington State University Cougar soccer team to prove they were worthy of their pre-season accolades. Behind three first-half goals, Wazzu easily and hastily dispatched their Palouse neighbor, Idaho by the score of 3-0 in their 2009 season opener at Cougarland Field in Pullman.
The scoring parade began early as true freshman Brandi Vega scored the first goal of her young Cougar career just a little over 17 minutes into the match to give the Cougars a lead they would never relinquish. Senior stalwart Kiersten Dallstream added a second Cougar goal 13 minutes later to give her 18 career goals and tie her for fifth on the school's all-time scoring chart. Two minutes later, sophomore Tiara Pittman punched another one into the back of the net and the rout was on.
Junior Emma Stolz missed a penalty kick early in the second half but the Cougars did not need it as Wazzu not only dominated the Vandals on the scoreboard but also in the stats as the Cougars outshot Idaho 21-4 and the Cougar defense shut down the Vandals as junior [transfer from Florida] Meghan Berlingo who played 76 minutes and earned a shutout in her first appearance as a Cougar.
