LACEY, Wash. -- Forward Catherine Miles was credited with her league-leading fourth game-winning goal of the season as Western Washington defeated St. Martin’s 3-1 in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference contest on Thursday at the SMU Soccer Field.

The Vikings, ranked No.2 nationally for the fourth consecutive week, improved to 12-0-0 overall and lead the GNAC at 9-0-0.

St. Martin’s fell to 3-9-0 overall and 2-7-0 in conference play.

Ashton Griffen scored the game’s first goal in the fifth minute on an indirect free kick. It was her first goal of the season and the second of her WWU career with Kristen Maris getting her fifth assist.

Miles made the score 2-0 when she found the lower right corner of the net from 12 yards out in the 15th minute. It was her team and GNAC-leading ninth goal of the campaign.

SMU cut the deficit in half with a goal by Abby McFaul in the 43rd minute. Sasha Dini and Hanna Massee were credited with assists.

WWU got an insurance goal in the 60th minute as Diana Pollock scored on a corner kick.

It was the Vikings’ fifth consecutive win against SMU, upping their series advantage to 11-2-1.

The 12-0-0 start is WWU’s best since winning its first 14 games in 1984. The Vikings have outscored the opposition 34-4 this season.
