April 17, 2007

SEATTLE - The Washington women's soccer team opened its 2007 spring schedule in brilliant fashion Sunday. The Huskies used a five-goal second-half barrage to defeat Idaho 5-0 at Husky Soccer Field.

Washington resumes its spring schedule, Saturday, April 21 with a unique doubleheader. The Huskies host Western Washington in a noon exhibition at Husky Soccer Field before making a short trip across town to Interbay Stadium where they play Seattle Pacific in the 7 p.m. nightcap.

Sunday featured the return of junior forward Shuree Hyatt who saw her first action since an ankle injury during the opening minute at Ohio State on Sept. 17 sidelined her for the remainder of the 2006 season.

A product of Kentlake High School and transfer from San Francisco, Hyatt talllied two goals and an assist in her first seven games as a Husky before being felled by the injury.

Hyatt displayed a return to her dynamic offensive form Sunday, netting two goals. Also scoring for the Huskies were Dani Bridges, Robin Alexander and Melissa Beal.

A trio of goalkeeper patrolled the UW net, combining for the shutout while making two saves. Red-shirt sophomore Taylor Carr played the entire first half while junior Lizzy Showman and freshman Alex Phillips shared second-half duty between the posts.

Those three goalkeepers are battling to replace three-year starter Kelsey Rasmussen who completed her collegiate career last fall. Rasmussen ranks No. 2 among all-time Husky goalkeepers in career shutouts (17) and saves (269).
