Huskies Thrill In 1-0 Double OT Win
SEATTLE – The #22 Washington Huskies won a thriller, defeating the Oregon Ducks 1-0 in double overtime. Ameera Hussen had the golden goal, her second career overtime gamewinner. Summer Yates assisted on the goal to give her three assists in three career games against Oregon.
Washington extended its winning streak over the Ducks to five games, with its last loss in 2015 and its last home loss to Oregon in 2005. The Huskies have allowed just one goal in the last four years to Oregon.
Washington is 8-3-2 overall and 4-3-2 in Pac-12 play with the win. It was Washington's sixth home win of the season, its most home wins since 2015.
The Huskies put the pressure on all game, not allowing a shot on goal from Oregon until overtime and outshooting the Ducks 16-7 overall, including 10-2 on shots on goal. Five different Huskies had multiple shots, led by Yates with four and Hussen and Mary Johnston with three each.
Johnston was a part of many dangerous Husky chances, sending in cross after cross into dangerous areas. Ruby Hellstrom was just as dangerous, with a shot off the post in the 49th minute that then bounced around in traffic for a few seconds before resulting in a Husky corner.
It would once again be a set piece that made the difference for the Huskies. The gamewinner came on Washington's eighth corner of the night, ending the game after 105 minutes.
