Final Stats

SEATTLE - Senior forward Tina Frimpong put back a teammate's shot that caromed off the Maryland goalkeeper, scoring the lone goal in the 19th minute of Washington's 1-0 victory in the third-round of the NCAA women's soccer tournament at Husky Soccer Field.

The 15th-seed Huskies (17-4-1) advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in their 14-year history. They will meet No. 7 seed Princeton (18-2) next weekend. The date and venue will be announced Sunday, but it will definitely be held at one of the competing school's home fields. The quarterfinal contest will likely be played at Princeton due to the Tigers' higher seed.
