Hauerlandova had a golden opportunity to close out Carter in a hard fought first set when she broke Carter in the ninth game for a 5-4 lead and then took a 30-0 lead on her own serve in the 10th game, but Carter won the next four points, the final one on a double fault.
Carter then held serve easily at love to take a 6-5 lead and broke Hauerlandova at love to take the set.
Carter got broken in the opening game of the second set but returned the favor in the next game and held for a 2-1 lead.
The two players held serve through the fifth game, with Carter taking a 3-2 lead. Carter then took a 15-40 lead and had two break points in the sixth game. Hauerlandova saved one with a forehand overhead smash, but gave Carter the break and a 4-2 lead when she hit a forehand beyond the baseline.
Carter quickly made it 5-2 on her serve, holding at love with three service winners and a forehand volley, and then closed out the match in anticlimactic fashion when Hauerlandova committed four unforced errors in the final game.
The Huskies took the doubles point as Monika Kolbovic and Saskia Nauenberg defeated Patricia Graf and Sarah Sansom in the #3 position 8-5, and just a moment later Carter and Dea Sumantri defeated Indra Erichsen and Katalina Romero in the top doubles match 8-4.
In the #2 position, the Huskies' pair of Dinka Hadzic and Erin Hoe fell behind Hauerlandova and Alesya Vidor 6-0 before rallying to cut the deficit to 6-4. After two volley winners by Hauerlandova gave San Diego State a 7-4 lead, Hadzic and Hoe closed to 7-5, but could get no closer, finally losing 8-5.
When play shifted to singles the Huskies cruised to victory in straight sets. Sumantri hammered Erichsen in the #2 position 6-0, 6-2 while Hoe beat Romero by the same score in the #3 position. Stephanie Svanfeldt won her second straight match in the #6 position with a 6-0,6-1 rout of Sansom and a 4-0 Washington lead. Nauenberg beat Graf 6-4,6-2 in #5 singles and Hadzic beat Vidor 6-4,6-4 in the #4 spot.
With the win the Huskies improved to 10-2 and won their second straight match following a 4-3 loss at #10 Northwestern on February 28. They next host arch-rival and 59th ranked Washington State in a non-conference match at the Nordstrom Tennis Center at 12:00 noon on Sunday before opening the Pac-10 season at #23 Oregon on Friday, March 12.
