Huskies Stay Hot At Home In 2-1 Win
SEATTLE – The #7 Washington Huskies won their fourth straight home game, defeating the California Golden Bears 2-1 behind Lucas Meek and Dylan Teves goals. Sam Fowler made three saves in net in another impressive performance as Washington ran its record to 9-2-0 overall and 6-2-0 in conference play.
The Huskies would outshoot Cal 16-6 in the game and only looked more dangerous after Cal's goal, outshoot Cal 9-1 over the next 45 minutes and taking the lead at 2-1. The shot totals didn't do full justice to Washington's offense, which put in dangerous ball after dangerous ball throughout the game.
Despite a deluge of offensive pressure from the Huskies, it was Cal that got on the board first, with a header goal in the 14th minute. Washington wasn't fazed, keeping up their attack and tying it back up on Teves' fourth penalty-kick goal of the season.
Meek's goal early in the second half didn't put an end to the Husky pressure either: Washington outshot Cal 5-3 the rest of the way after taking the lead. 11 different Huskies had shots in the game, with Meek, Teves, Nick Scardina, and Imanol Rosales all recording multiple shots.
