Huskies Roll 5-1 On Senior Day
SEATTLE – The #7 Washington Huskies took home their biggest Pac-12 of the season, beating the UCLA Bruins 5-1 on Senior Day. Kendall Burks and Nick Scardina both had braces in the game. Charlie Ostrem had three assists, Washington's second three-assist game of the season. Dylan Teves had a goal and an assist, while Christian Soto and Cole Grimsby picked up assists as well. Washington is 10-2-0 overall and 7-2-0 in Pac-12 play heading into the season finale at Stanford next week.
Scardina is the first Husky since Handwalla Bwana in 2017 to have a hat trick and a brace in the same season after today's performance. Ostrem joins Teves as the only Huskies with three-assist games in the last 20 years. Ostrem is just the ninth Husky ever with three or more assists in a game.
Washington came out of the gates on fire, outshooting UCLA 13-3 in the first half alone and taking a 4-0 lead. The Huskies scored three goals in a seven-minute span to break open the game and had all four first-half goals in the first 26 minutes. It was the first four-goal half by the Huskies since 2016. Washington has not scored more in a half since 2000, when they scored six goals against Cal in the second half.
Sam Fowler and Andrew Morrison combined in net, allowing just one goal. Fowler made two saves, while Morrison worked 13 scoreless minutes to finish off the big win.
