INW Collegiate Recap: Idaho, Boise State fall in WAC & MWC play

Early into the conference campaign Utah State and Seattle are among the four unbeaten teams and sit atop the WAC table. The Idaho Vandals, however, are at the other end of things coming off a big loss in Seattle over the weekend, leaving them without a conference win through three games. Though the conference campaign is only two games in, Boise State finds itself at the bottom of the table along with Air Force, which has also lost both games. San Diego State, whom the Broncos nearly posted a positive result with this weekend, is the conferences only ranked side and at 11-1-1 overall shoulders above its peers, which include three other unbeaten in conference play.


Denver 1 :: 1 Louisiana Tech
UTSA 0 :: 3 Utah State
Texas State 3 :: 1 San Jose State

Idaho 1 :: 5 Seattle
Julia Moravec, Seattle U
Despite an early exchange in a game that was level at one apiece at the break, the Vandals just did not have an answer for Stephanie Verdoia and Julia Moravec (Spokane, WA). Verdoia gave Seattle the lead after 14 minutes, but Idaho answered back five minutes later when Jill Flockhart found Katie Baran (Spokane, WA) for the equalizer. Moravec connected with Verdoia to reclaim the lead less than two minutes into the second half with Verdoia doubling the lead in the 56th. Moravec put the game out of reach with eight minutes left and Kat Prati closed things up in the 87th minute for the hosts. – MORE
