PORTLAND, Ore. -- Ellie Walker's first goal of the season gave Portland a 1-0 victory over Gonzaga women's soccer at Merlo Field Saturday.

Sophia Viviano had a great look in the 90th minute, but Rachel Lusby made a diving save for Portland. Lusby finished with six saves, while Isabel Jones made four saves for Gonzaga (10-5-1, 2-4-0 WCC).

The Zags host BYU (5-6-4, 2-2-1) Thursday. The Cougars played to a scoreless draw with Loyola Marymount in Provo, Utah, Saturday. Thursday's match at Luger Field will be televised on ESPNU and is scheduled for an 8 p.m. start.
