Oct 2, 2022

LOS ANGELES – No. 2 Washington completed the SoCal sweep following a 1-0 win at No. 21 UCLA on Sunday afternoon.
With the win, the Huskies continue its undefeated season with a record of 9-0-1 and a 2-0-0 mark in Pac-12 play.
In a defensive battle, Washington opened the scoring in the 44th minute. Off the deflected free kick, Imanol Rosales sent the ball back into the box for Ilijah Paul. Paul sent a header to the feet of Nick Scardina who was waiting just outside the 18 and sent it to the right corner past the UCLA keeper for the 1-0 lead.

Washington outshot 11-5 on the day with the Huskies recording four shots on goal. Sam Fowler recorded three saves during the match.
The Huskies return home for the next three contests, beginning with No. 6 Stanford on Thursday, Oct. 6. Washington then hosts Cal (Oct. 9) before its final nonconference matchup of the season against Gonzaga on Oct. 14.
