MORAGA, Calif. — The philosophy of peppering the opposing defense with shots has worked so far this season for the Washington State soccer team. Entering Sunday's final nonconference game of the season, the Cougars ranked sixth nationally, averaging 23 shots per contest.

You shoot the ball enough and the law of averages eventually says you will score. That's what happened against Saint Mary's.

Leading goal-scorer Margie Detrizio and senior forward Brianna McReynolds each tallied a goal Sunday as Washington State won its sixth consecutive game, this one a 2-0 decision against the Gaels at Saint Mary's Stadium.
