UCLA Men's Soccer Team Earns 1-0 Shutout Victory At Washington
Oct. 7, 2005
A goal on a free kick by junior midfielder Patrick Ianni in the 35th minute proved to be the deciding score as No. 6/12 UCLA shut out Washington, 1-0, in Pac-10 men's soccer action Friday evening in Seattle.
The win keeps UCLA undefeated in conference play with a 3-0-0 league mark and a 7-2-0 record overall. Washington drops to 6-3-0 and 0-2-0 in the Pac-10.
UCLA capitalized on a restart at the 34:52 minute mark. Ianni launched a free kick from over 20 yards, up over the UW two-man wall and through a pack of players in front of the goal. The goal was his second of the season.
Bruin goalkeeper Eric Reed made several key saves in the contest, including a stop on a rocket from Washington senior Evan Cummings just 2:46 into the game. In the 34th minute, the Huskies had back-to-back shots from Jeff Hoover (saved by Reed) and sophomore Spencer Schmidt (wide).
In the second-half, one of the Huskies better chances came on a restart. A free kick from freshman Jo Jo Katz found sophomore Derek Crismier in the box, but Crismier knocked the ball wide left.
Reed saved four of Washington's 12 shots on the night, while UW keeper Chris Eylander grabbed one of UCLA's eight shots. The Bruins recorded their fourth consecutive shutout, with Reed earning his sixth solo shutout of the season.
