No. 8 Men's Soccer Battles To 1-1 Double Overtime Tie With California

Oct. 10, 2003

BERKELEY, CALIF. - Sophomore Gavin Hobbs scored the Huskies' lone goal of the game as eighth-ranked Washington men's soccer battled to a 1-1 double overtime tie with the California Golden Bears, Friday afternoon in Berkeley.

The tie brings Washington's record to 7-1-2 overall and 1-1-1 in the Pac-10, while Cal's record goes to 5-4-2 overall, and 1-0-1 against conference opponents. The Huskies' other tie of the season came versus Oakland University, also a 1-1 game in the Portland Nike Invitational.

Hobbs gave the Huskies a 1-0 lead in the 35th minute with his first goal of the season. The play developed off a free kick from sophomore Leo Totev, which junior Casey Armstrong sent off the crossbar and Hobbs knocked in the rebound.

Cal's Pieter Berger scored the equalizer in the 54th minute, a 15-yard shot to the far post. Kyle Navarro was credited with the assist.

UW senior goalkeeper Danny Waltman made six saves on 21 shots from Cal, while Golden Bear keeper Mike Oseguera tallied three saves on 12 Husky shots. Armstrong led Washington with four shots, while Totev had three.

Washington, which has won six of its last eight matches, will next face Stanford, Sunday, Oct. 12, at 1 p.m. in Palo Alto.
