[PEPPERDINE-GONZAGA] No. 11 Pepperdine extended its unbeaten streak to 17 games, dating back to the 2010 season, when it beat Gonzaga, 1-0, on Friday. The Waves are tied with No. 2 Oklahoma State and No. 5 Memphis for the longest unbeaten streak in the country.

Freshman forward Ally Holtz’s second-half goal was the difference for the Waves, who are now 12-0-4 overall and 4-0-0 in the WCC, where they lead Santa Clara, which beat defending champion Portland, 2-1, to improve to 3-0-1.

Goalkeeper Roxanne Barker made several late saves to preserve the victory at Tari Frahm Rokus Field, where the Waves are unbeaten since 2009 and are riding a 19-game unbeaten streak.

“We knew Gonzaga was going to be good and very organized defensively," said Pepperdine coach Tim Ward. "They are very, very tough. I thought we played well and deserved to win the game. You just have to find ways to win sometimes, even when it’s not pretty. We are very proud of the team and the way they played today."

Anisa Guajardo (9 goals, 1 assist), and Lynn Williams (5 goals, 7 goals), both recruited out of the Fresno, Calif., area, lead the Waves in scoring.
