WSU Soccer: Why You Should Attend the Women’s Apple Cup Game


It’s safe to say that WSU Women’s Soccer is one of the best sports teams in the Pac with a record of 13-3-3 on the season. Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t miss the women’s soccer game against UW this Friday.

WSU soccer is currently ranked second in the Pac-12, right behind UCLA. Stanford is trailing at third, after their loss Sunday against the Cougs, 1-0. That game ended Stanford’s away game streak of 42 wins, and overrall winning streak of 26 wins. Junior Jocelyn Jeffers scored the victory goal during the second half, and the team was nothing short of ecstatic.

University of Washington’s soccer team (7-8-4, 3-3-3 Pac-12) is currently ranked seventh in the Pac-12, but that doesn’t mean there should be any shortage of fans in the stands. UW has had some legends within it’s soccer program, including Olympian and Dancing with the Stars cast member, Hope Solo.

Any Apple Cup is sure to supply it’s fair share of rivalry and excitement. The Huskies’ recent loss to Cal, a critical match for their season, is sure to have the team fired up to play WSU. The Dawgs have nothing to lose, putting the pressure of the Cougs to stay focused for the win.

With such a successful season, watching the Cougs face UW is sure to be worth while. The game is located in Seattle, but with a three-day weekend it’s a great excuse to cultivate some rival energy in preparation for WSU football’s Apple Cup game later this month.

Go Cougs!
