ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- Central Washington University junior Carson McKole (Oak Harbor, Wash.) scored twice as the women's soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to four games with a 3-0 victory over Saint Martin's University on "Senior Day" at the CWU Soccer Field.

The Wildcats now have an 8-3-4 overall record, including 7-2-2 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play. With just three games remaining, they have secured a winning record -- both overall and in conference play -- for the first time since the 2008 season.

McKole gave the Wildcats an early advantage, as she scored her first goal of the contest at the 8:57 mark in the first half. Senior midfielder Miranda Heslep (Bellingham, Wash./Meridian HS) sent a lead pass past the defense to McKole, who shook past the charging Saints goalkeeper for an empty net goal from 10 yards out.

Just 29 seconds into the second half, McKole added her eighth goal of the season as she again beat the opposing keeper one-on-one, scoring from 12 yards out. Freshman Hadli Farrand (Ellensburg, Wash.) was credited with her second assist of the season.

Central had numerous opportunities to add goals in the second half as nine of its 17 second-half shots were on goal. One of those shots was scored by senior Serena Tomaso (Enumclaw, Wash.), who gathered her own rebounded shot off the SMU goalie to give the Wildcats a 3-0 advantage at the 87-minute mark.

In total, the Wildcats outshot the Saints 24-7 and also took a 7-5 edge in corner kicks.

Goalkeepers Kayla Lipston (Federal Way, Wash./Decatur HS) and Kori Butterfield (Duvall, Wash./Cedarcrest HS) earned a combined shutout, with Lipston stopping all four Saints shots on goal, earning her third victory of the season.

Senior Amy Pate (Federal Way, Wash./Thomas Jefferson HS) and Tomaso each led the Wildcats with four shot attempts in the contest, while sisters Brittany Franks and Hillary Franks (Yakima, Wash./West Valley HS), as well as McKole, contributed three shots apiece.

Pate, Tomaso, the Franks sisters, Heslep, Katelyn Scobba (Vancouver, Wash./Prairie HS), and Alex Jensen (Yakima, Wash./West Valley HS) all played their final collegiate home matches for Central Washington and were honored prior to the game.

The Wildcats will play its remaining three games on the road, starting with a second-place showdown at Montana State University Billings on Thursday (Oct. 27) at 3:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
