Third-ranked Washington earned a 1-1 draw at No. 1 California to stay unbeaten in men’s soccer.
The Huskies (7-0-3, 1-0-1 Pac-12) got a late Taylor Peay goal to earn a huge Pac-12 road point against the top-ranked Golden Bears (7-0-2, 1-0-1).
“I thought we showed a lot of character,” said Washington coach Jamie Clark. “It really was a tale of two halves. I thought particularly after giving up a goal, we really played well in the second half. Still, they were dangerous on set pieces and counter-attacks so it was just a good game for both teams.”
T-birds edge Kootenay, 4-3
Justin Hickman scored the go-ahead goal 15:02 into the third period, giving the Seattle Thunderbirds a 4-3 victory at Kootenay in a Western Hockey League game. Shea Theodore had three assists for the T-birds.
Roberts Lipsbergs, Mitch Elliot and Mathew Barzal also scored for Seattle, which has won three in a row.
