Huskies Fall To USC On The Road
LOS ANGELES – The #19 Washington Huskies fell to the USC Trojans Friday night, taking a 5-0 road defeat. The loss ends Washington's three-game win streak. Washington had not allowed more than one goal in any game before today.
The Huskies are 7-2-2 overall and 3-2-2 in conference after today's loss. Washington has one more game to play this weekend, taking on #5 UCLA on the road on Sunday.
It was a scoreless game at the half, with Washington managing four shots in the first 45 minutes of play. Sianna Siemonsma started the game with a near goal: her header off Olivia Van der Jagt's cross went hard on goal but was caught by the keeper.
Ruby Hellstrom had a particularly dangerous chance in the 21st minute with a shot from the top corner of the box. It appeared to be headed for the inside of the far post, only for USC's keeper to push it just wide.
