Pac-12 men’s soccer scores for Sunday, Dec. 1
The Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team arrived in Berkeley Sunday as the nation’s top scoring club. The Chanticleers left Goldman Field without having scored a single point, as California shut them out, 1-0, to advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament. Alec Sundly scored the game’s only goal, while Alex Mangels logged five saves for the fourth-seeded Bears (14-4-2), who will face fifth-seeded Maryland next weekend.
UCLA had its chances on Sunday. Against Connecticut in the NCAA men’s soccer tournament’s third round, the top-seeded Bruins went up 2-0 early, watched the Huskies crawl back and then took a 3-2 advantage with Leo Stolz’s goal at the 60-minute mark. Connecticut tied the game up, and the squads went scoreless in two overtime periods, but UCLA took an early 2-1 edge in penalty kicks. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be, as the Bruins split the last four kicks and fell, 5-4, to the Huskies in penalty kicks.
The Washington men’s soccer team defeated Stanford twice during the regular season — 3-1 in October and 2-0 in November. When the squads met for a third time, in the Sweet 16 on Sunday, the only thing that changed was the margin. The Huskies shut out the Cardinal, winning 1-0 in Seattle to advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament. Ian Lange scored the lone goal in the 84th minute for Washington, which will make its first-ever Elite Eight appearance next week.
