UW Men Fall In Double Overtime Heartbreaker At UCLA
Sept. 29, 2006
LOS ANGELES - The fourth-ranked Washington men's soccer team had its season-opening eight-game winning streak come to end Friday night, falling in a double overtime heartbreaker to No. 17 UCLA, 2-1.
UW senior defender Ty Harden scored the equalizer in the 89th minute of regulation to send the match into overtime, only to have the Bruins net the gamewinner with just 18 seconds remaining in the second overtime period. UCLA's James Jaramillo scored on a rebounded shot from Kyle Nakazawa at 109:42.
UCLA went ahead 1-0 in the 32nd minute on a goal by Mike Zaher. The Huskies played the last six minutes of regulation and both overtime periods with just 10 players as midfielder Steve Mohn was issued a red card and ejected in the 84th minute.
The loss drops Washington to 8-1-0 overall, 1-1-0 in Pac-10 play while UCLA improves to 5-3-2 overall, 1-1-1 in league play. The Huskies were the only unbeaten or untied team in NCAA Division I men's soccer going into this week's action.
Up next, the Huskies will continue their Southern California road trip facing San Diego State, Sunday, Oct. 1, at 2 p.m. at the SDSU Sports Deck.
