Aug. 20, 2003

SEATTLE - Seattle University downed Washington men's soccer 1-0 in an exhibition match at Husky Soccer Field, Wednesday evening.

His replacement, senior Sean Giudice was ejected in the 50th minute after a red card violation, forcing to Huskies to play a man down almost the entire second half.

Six Husky newcomers saw action in the match, including starts for freshman Will Flanagan, sophomore transfer Hans Esterhuizen and freshman Derek Crismier. Flanagan, a defender, led the Husky attack with three shots, while sophomore Kevin Murray and junior C.J. Klaas each added two.
