Huskies Snap Losing Skid With 2-0 Shutout of Stanford
Oct. 13, 2006
PALO ALTO, CALIF. - Led by second half goals from junior forward Kevin Forrest and sophomore midfielder Raphael Cox, the Husky men's soccer team snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-0 shutout of Stanford at Maloney Field in Palo Alto, Calif., Friday evening.
The win improved Washington's overall record to 9-4-0, 2-4-0 in Pac-10 play. UW handed Stanford its first conference loss of the season, dropping the Cardinal to 5-5-3 overall, 3-1-1 against league opponents.
The Huskies welcomed the return of leading scorer Forrest, who had missed the previous two matches with a knee injury. Forrest put UW on the board in the 52nd minute, scoring on a header off a corner kick from Cox - a goal that ended a three-game scoring drought for UW. Cox then scored a goal of his own to seal the win in the 89th minute after receiving a pass from junior forward Ely Allen.
Washington outshot the Cardinal 10-3, led by six shots from Forrest. Stanford goalkeeper John Moore recorded four saves, while UW keeper Rylan Hawkins grabbed two. It was the fourth shutout of the season for Hawkins and fifth for the Huskies.
The Huskies will remain in the Bay Area to take on California, Sunday, Oct. 15, at 2:30 p.m.
