INW Collegiate Recap - MWC & WAC: Boise State wins two on the road; Vandals split

The two Idaho schools performed well, picking up wins in three of their four matches. Despite being on the road, Boise State crawled out of their winless hole to put themselves in the picture for the Mountain West playoffs in a wide open table. The Idaho Vandals, meanwhile, earned their first conference win against mid-table San Jose State before falling to league-leading Utah State in a pair of home contests.


Boise State 1 :: 0 Air Force
The Broncos put the pressure on in the first half on the road with a 9-2 advantage in shots but were unable to find any success until the 77th minute when Shannon Schueren redirected a ball from KT Clayton past Kelly Stambaugh. Goalkeeper Maddy McDevitt made three saves on 10 total shots from the hosts. – MORE

The defensive stalemate, led in part by Broncos netminder Maddy McDevitt with four saves, looked to be headed to a draw when a cross from Katy Oehring in the final minute of overtime soared over the keeper and found Brooke Heidemann (Meridian, ID) at the far post for the finish. – MORE
