VB | No. 12 Oregon Comes From Behind to Down No. 22 Washington St.

In the most even matchup of the season, Oregon Volleyball was put to the test when the Washington St. Cougars came to Eugene. Fresh off a loss to No. 13 Washington, Wazzou was hungry for their first Pac-12 win. They got off to a quick start, taking the first set 25-22. Oregon, who tallied three service errors in that set, matched the Cougars’ intensity and won set two 25-22.

Set three showed a high-octane Oregon offense trade points with Wazzou before faltering and allowing a 25-22 set-win for the Cougars. Set four was a different story, as the teams traded leads three times and saw the score even 11 times. Led by Lindsey Vander Weide, who moved into seventh all-time for most career points by a Duck, Oregon was able to secure a 25-23 set win before going on to take the match on a 15-12 win in the final set. Vander Weide posted a 20-20 day with 22 kills and 28 digs. Wazzou’s McKenna Woodford also had a stellar day, striking for 20 kills and a .288 hit percentage. Oregon moves to 9-3 overall and 2-0 in conference play. Washington St. is 9-3 and 0-2 in the Pac-12.
