The No. 10 Washington men’s soccer team stayed unbeaten with a 0-0 draw at No. 3 Connecticut on Tuesday night.
The battle of Huskies turned into a rugged defensive match with neither team allowing many chances.
Washington came into the match riding an offensive outburst after back-to-back games with four goals. Tuesday, UConn proved to be much stingier, allowing just six Husky shots. On the other end, UW allowed 11 shots and only one on target, which Spencer Richey saved.
Washington (3-0-1) did not have a shot on goal until late in regulation when Mason Robertson put a header on target, but UConn made the save. In the second overtime, Darwin Jones had the other Husky shot on goal, but again UConn (2-0-1) made the save.
Washington senior Taylor Peay was voted Pac-12 men’s soccer Player of the Week for the week earlier in the day.
The defender from Salt Lake City, Utah, recorded four total goals over the course of the week, including a hat trick in the first half of a 4-1 victory over Santa Clara.
• Sean Russell and Graham Reid netted second-half goals 10 minutes apart, carrying the Seattle Pacific men’s soccer team to its first win of the season with a 2-0 nonconference decision at Dixie State.
Russell’s goal at 64:25 was the first of the season for the Falcons (1-1), stopping a154-minute scoreless streak.
• Seattle University (2-7) played well through most of the night, but 20th-ranked Oregon proved to be too much for the Redhawks, as the Ducks (4-3) picked up a 3-0 victory (25-19, 25-12, 25-16) in volleyball action.
• The Seattle University men’s golf team finished 12th in the Itani Quality Homes Collegiate, hosted by Washington State, at the Palouse Ridge Golf Course.
As a team, Seattle U shot 39-over 879. Washington State shot 4-under 836 for a one-stroke victory over Cal State Fullerton, while Cody Blick of San Jose State and Blake Snyder of Washington State shot 68 in the final round to end the tournament tied for medalist honors at 7-under 203.
• Junior Danielle Brandli scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner in the 99th minute, as Central Washington’s women’s soccer team rallied to defeat host Eastern New Mexico, 2-1 in overtime.
