Pac-12 Play Continues With First Road Game
SEATTLE - Washington hits the road for the first time this season with one game against Cal, schedule for February 27 at 1:00 pm. Washington had two other road games scheduled earlier this year, only to have the games at Seattle Pacific and at Portland canceled.
The Huskies began Pac-12 play last week and will only face off with Pac-12 opponents for the rest of the season. Washington started Pac-12 play 0-1-0, falling 1-2 to Oregon State at home.
Washington has won its last two games at Cal, in 2019 and 2018. The Huskies fell 2-3 to Cal in the last meeting between the two programs: Washington has not lost back-to-back games against Cal since 2010, when the Huskies fell 1-4 and 1-2 (2OT) in the same season. Since those games, Washington is 12-3-2 against Cal.
The Huskies lost their Pac-12 opener last week, 1-2 to Oregon State. Washington has lost its Pac-12 opener just twice in the last nine years, with both of those losses coming to Oregon State. After losing a Pac-12 game under Jamie Clark, the Huskies are 15-3-7 in their next game.
Gio Miglietti scored his second goal of the season, against Oregon State. Three of Miglietti's seven career goals have come against Pac-12 opponents. Six of his seven goals have come at home.
In his first three games as a Husky, Kendall Burks has recorded six shots, scoring one goal. The six shots were the most by a Husky in their first three games since Handwalla Bwana in 2016. Burks scored his first goal as a Husky on his very first shot at Washington.
Washington allowed six shots against Oregon State. That makes it three straight games that the Huskies have allowed fewer than ten shots: the six shots were a season-high by an opponent against Washington. In all, the Huskies have outshot the opposition 61-11 so far, allowing only three shots on goal.
Kendall Burks is the only Husky to play every minute of every game so far, playing the full 90 in all three games. Charlie Ostrem has done so in two games, while Christian Soto and Ryan Sailor have played 80+ minutes in each of the last two games, playing 176 of 180 possible minutes in that time.
