OSU Looks To Get Back On Track Sunday At Washington
Oct. 14, 2002
CORVALLIS, Ore. - -
LAST ACTION: Oregon State had its school-record seven-game winning streak snapped when it ran into the California Golden Bears on Friday and came away with a 5-0 defeat in Berkeley. OSU had early scoring chances, but couldn't capitalize and fell behind 4-0 by halftime.
The Beavers gave a much better performance in Sunday's matchup with the nation's top-ranked team, Stanford. The defensive battle went to overtime before the Cardinal's Darren Fernandez headed in a score off a Johanes Maliza free kick in the 95th minute for a 1-0 win.
A LOOK AT WASHINGTON: The Huskies (3-5-3, 0-2-0) enter the weekend coming off losses at then-No. 1 Stanford and No. 15 California by scores of 2-0 and 2-1 in overtime, respectively. Of UW's 11 games, seven have been against teams ranked among the nation's top 25. UW beat then-No. 24 Santa Clara 2-1 on Sept. 6 and tied then-No. 16 Portland 1-1 on Oct. 6, but dropped matches with No. 5 South Carolina (3-1 score), No. 18 Creighton (2-1, 2 OT), and No. 9 Connecticut (2-0). The Huskies are led by Dayo Otega's seven points, while Daniel Waltman and Chris Eylander have split time in goal and accumulated a 1.51 combined goals-against average for the year.
