SEATTLE - Goals from second-half substitutions Kevin Forrest and Sean Giudice, whoboth scored shortly after entering the game at halftime, lifted the Washington men's soccerteam to a 2-1 exhibition win over Seattle Pacific Saturday evening at Husky Soccer Field.
The game did not count towards either team's season record.
Forrest, a freshman from Edmonds, Wash., scored the first goal of the match, heading in ahigh looping pass from sophomore Jeff Hoover. The goal came at 50:26 into the match, alittle more than five minutes after the intermission.
Just over two minutes later, Giudice, a senior from Davis, Calif., made it 2-0 when heaccepted a pass from Evan Cummings and, from a difficult angle, slotted a slow, rollingshot just past the diving goalkeeper and just inside the right post.
SPU got back in the match with only 8:58 remaining. After Washington was called for afoul after a collision just outside of the penalty area, Micheal Morris unleashed a free kickthat blasted through the UW wall, past the diving keeper and into the right-side netting ofthe goal.
Washington nearly made it 3-1 on a similar free kick from Casey Armstrong with aboutthree minutes remaining, but SPU keeper James Ward made a spectacular save to keep theHuskies' would-be third goal out of the net.
Ward finished with four saves for the visiting Falcons while Husky goalkeeperChris Eylander made three.
