Seattle, Wash. - Kelyn Rowe, Ryan Hollingshead Eder Arreola and Victor Chavez each scored a goal as the No. 13/15 UCLA men's soccer team took home a 4-1 victory over the Washington Huskies on Friday night.
The Bruins improved to 8-3-1 on the season and 3-0 in the conference. Meanwhile, the Huskies dropped to 5-3-2 on the year and 0-2 in Pac-12 play.
UCLA got on the board first in the 11th minute when Kelyn Rowe executed a nice give and go with Chandler Hoffman and got the ball back at the top of the box. Rowe then put an excellent bending shot into the top right hand corner of the net for his 4th goal of the season, giving UCLA an early 1-0 lead. In the 21st minute, the Bruins made it 2-0 when Ryan Hollingshead scored a beautiful goal off of a cross from Patrick Matchett. Matchett sent a great ball into the box to the far post where Hollingshead jumped and tapped the ball into the far corner of the goal with his right foot, scoring his second goal in as many games. With just eight minutes to go in the half, the Huskies got one back as Quinton Beasley got the rebound off a shot from Brent Richards that hit the crossbar and promptly put a shot past Rowe, cutting the deficit to 2-1. Neither team would find the back of the net for the rest of the half and the Bruins went into the half with a 2-1 lead.
At the 62 minute mark, UCLA picked up their third goal of the match when Eder Arreola took a nice chip from Patrick Matchett in the box. Arreola then chipped the ball himself over his defender and put a shot on net. Huskie goalkeeper Spencer Richey stopped the first shot, but Eder took the rebound and did not miss this time, giving the Bruins a 3-1 lead. UCLA got another break just a few minutes later when Washington midfielder Ben Fisk was handed a red card and sent off for a tackle on Andy Rose, bringing the Huskies down to 10 men. Up one man, the Bruins would grab one more goal before time expired as Victor Chavez put in an Victor Munoz cross to get his first goal of the year in the 88th minute. UCLA ran out the remaining time on the clock from there and cruised to a 4-1 win over Washington.
The Bruins will now travel to Corvallis, Ore. to take on the Oregon State Beavers on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 1 pm.
