Huskies Move To First Place In Pac-12 With 1-0 Win

Mar 20, 2021

Box Score

SEATTLE – A chippy, contentious game went the way of the #6 Washington Huskies, who defeated the #2 Stanford Cardinal 1-0 on a late goal by Dylan Teves. The game was scoreless until the 85th minute, when Teves scored his fifth goal of the season to put the Huskies up for good.

Charlie Ostrem assisted on Teves' goal. In the last five games, that duo have combined for five goals and three assists, with all of those games Husky wins.

Washington is 7-1-0 overall and 4-1-0 in Pac-12 play, moving the Huskies into a tie for first place in the conference along with Stanford and Oregon State. The Huskies have won five straight games after today's win, with four of those games shutouts.

In goal, Sam Fowler had his fifth shutout of the season. The sophomore made five saves, including four in the second half. Fowler came up big late too, making a save in the 89th minute on Stanford's final attacking opportunity to close the door on any possible comeback.
 

 

 SCORING
  • 85' | A beautiful sequence of team play won the game for the Huskies. Lucas Meek fed Teves, who got rid of the ball and continued his run up field. It was Ostrem who would find Teves in the box. Teves then redirected the ball with the side of his foot while on the run to score.

 

 NOTES
  • Nate Jones made his first career start, playing 73 minutes.
  • Teves has five goals in his last five games.
  • Stanford is the first opponent to managed five shots on goal against the Huskies.
  • Fowler now has a 379-minute shutout streak.
