Husky Men Wrap Spring Season With Four Straight Wins

April 28, 2005

SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington men's soccer capped off its spring season of competition winning four straight matches en route to an overall record of 7-2-4. The Huskies swept a double-header with city rivals Seattle University (3-1) and Seattle Pacific (1-0) on April 16, and picked up a pair of wins in Portland over the Pilots (2-1) and Team Nike (3-0) on April 23.

A pair of sophomores-to-be Ely Allen and Spencer Schmidt led Washington's offense in its last four matches, with both forwards scoring three goals apiece. The duo teamed up to score both goals in UW's 2-1 victory over Northwest rival Portland, a team that ousted the Huskies from the NCAA First Round last season. Allen and Schmidt joined midfielder Jeff Hoover in the scoring act in UW's 3-1 win over Seattle U, and paired with newcomer Bobbak Talebi to score a trio of goals in a 3-0 shutout of Team Nike.

Senior-to-be Leo Totev was responsible for providing the Huskies' lone goal in their 1-0 victory over Seattle Pacific.

Thirteen different Huskies contributed either a goal or an assist in the 13 spring matches, with Schmidt leading the way with a team-high 12 points. Schmidt scored a team-high five goals to go along with two assists. Totev was right behind with 10 points on four goals and two assists. Hoover finished with a team-high five assists in addition to two goals for a total of nine points. Also ending up with nine points were Mike Chabala and Allen with four goals and one assist each.

The Huskies opened the spring season with back-to-back victories over the UW alumni (4-1) and Western Washington (4-0), before suffering a setback to the Seattle Sounders (3-2). The Huskies ended in a 1-1 draw with the University of British Columbia and defeated Trinity Western, 5-0. UW ended in a 1-1 draw with the Sounders in a second meeting, and finished in a scoreless tie with Seattle U. Prior to their four-match win streak, the Huskies tied Portland 1-1 and suffered a 2-1 loss to Seattle Pacific.
