Men's Soccer Edges Michigan 3-2 In First Round Of Marquette Invitational

Sept. 19, 2003

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Junior midfielder C.J. Klaas netted the game-winning goal in the 88th minute to lift Washington men's soccer over Michigan, 3-2, in the first round of the Marquette Invitational at Valley Fields in Milwaukee, Wis., Friday evening.

Klaas' goal, on a penalty kick in 87:51 minute mark that broke a 2-2 tie, was his first of the season. A hand ball by a Wolverine defender set up a penalty kick for Washington. Klaas' initial shot was blocked by Michigan keeper Peter Dzubay, but Klaas pounced on the ball and blasted his second shot into the net.

The Huskies took a 2-0 lead into halftime, only to have the Wolverines answer with a pair in the second half. With the win, Washington remains undefeated this season with a 3-0-1 record, while Michigan falls to 4-3. The Huskies will face tournament host Marquette, Sun, Sept. 21 at 12 p.m. PT. Marquette took on South Florida Friday evening following Washington's match.

Washington took an early 1-0 lead in the 12th minute on a goal by junior forward Casey Armstrong, his second in as many games. The Huskies extended their advantage to 2-0 on sophomore Leo Totev's team-leading third goal of the season. Totev's effort was assisted by another newcomer, freshman Kevin Forrest.

Michigan answered with a pair of goals in the 51st and 75th minutes by Knox Cameron and Mike White, respectively, before the game-winner from Klaas.

Klaas and Armstrong led the Husky attack with three shots each, while sophomore Jeff Hoover added a pair. Michigan outshot Washington 14-10, led by four shots each from Kevin Taylor and White. UW senior goalkeeper Danny Waltman made a season-high eight saves in goal, while Dzubay grabbed four.
