Harden Named To Soccer America Team of the Week
Oct. 19, 2005
SEATTLE - National accolades continued to roll in for the Washington men's soccer team as junior defender Ty Harden was named to the Soccer America National Team of the Week (Oct. 11-17), the publication announced today.
It marks the second national team of the week nod for Harden (Junction City, Ore.) who was also selected to the College Soccer News team on Monday.
Harden played a crucial role in Washington's shutout wins versus its Bay Area rivals last weekend. In addition to a 1-0 victory over Stanford, the Huskies handed Cal its first home loss (1-0) and shut down an offense that had registered 22 goals in 12 matches prior to their meeting.
Due in large part to the play of Harden, the Huskies have posted three straight shutouts - also including a 0-0 double overtime draw with San Diego State, Oct. 9. UW has allowed just two goals in five Pac-10 matches at the halfway point of conference play.
The Huskies (8-3-1, 2-2-1 Pac-10) will begin the second-half of Pac-10 play hosting California (9-3-1, 2-3-0), Friday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m. and Stanford (3-8-2, 0-4-1), Sunday, Oct. 23, at 1 p.m.
