When second half began, WSU came out with a different game plan and began playing withfewer touches that sped up the pace of the game and created more space for them. Jeremy Maldonado, Colby Stricker, Henry Pappin, Arturo Maya-Mendoza and an own goal by an Idaho Vandal were what gave WSU their first victory of the season. The Cougars now face Gonzaga and Eastern on the road during the first weekend of October.
