BURNABY, B.C. -- Catherine Miles had two goals in the first half and Anna Geldenhuys scored a pair in the second period, leading nationally ranked Western Washington to a lopsided 7-0 victory against Simon Fraser on Thursday in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference contest at Terry Fox Field on the SFU campus.

Kristen Maris began the scoring for WWU in the 10th minute, heading in a corner kick by Ashton Griffen. Nine minutes later, Maris put a through ball on the foot of Miles for a 2-0 lead.

Elise Aylward scored an unassisted goal on a shot from outside the penalty box in the 34th minute and Miles gave WWU a 4-0 halftime lead with a goal in the 39th minute as Diana Pollock and Katherine Miccile were awarded assists.

Maris and Miles each have seven goals and three assists this season to lead the Vikings.
