Los Angeles, Calif. - Senior Evan Raynr scored his second goal of the season in the 71st minute, but it wasn't enough as the fifth-ranked UCLA men's soccer team fell to the Washington Huskies 2-1 on Monday night.

The loss snapped UCLA's streaks of 16 consecutive victories over Pac-12 opponents and 10 straight matches without a loss. The 16 consecutive Pac-12 victories will go down as the second longest streak in school history. Despite the loss, the Bruins are still in the driver's seat in the Pac-12 with a 3-1 record in conference. Washington is in second place with a 2-0-1 conference mark.

The Huskies struck first in the 14th minute when Nate Sackeyfio scored his first goal of the year with a rocket from 20 yards out that beat Bruin keeper Earl Edwards to put Washington up 1-0 early. UCLA controlled possession for much of the first half, but was unable to find the equalizer and the Huskies took their 1-0 lead into the half.

In the second half, Washington came out on the offensive early and went up by two goals in the 59th minute when Michael Gallagher scored off a rebound after teammate Patrick Pacheco hit a shot off the post. UCLA regained the majority of possession after that and upped the intensity on the offensive end, eventually finding the net in the 71st minute when Raynr just got a toe on Max Estrada's cross to redirect the ball into the net for the goal. The Bruins continued to push forward and generated chance after chance, but just weren't able to find the equalizer, falling to the Huskies by the score of 2-1.

Overall, UCLA outshot Washington 16-9 in the match while Edwards made four saves. Washington goalkeeper Spencer Richey made five saves to earn his sixth win of the year. Raynr finished the night with five total shots, four of which were on goal.

"Tonight was one of those games where we gave up two bad goals and couldn't find a way to score," head coach Jorge Salcedo said. "Some of it was our poor finishing and some of it was their goalkeeping, but it was that combination that led to us losing the match. We will move forward and now the conference is wide open. I give Washington credit. They fought hard. I thought we were the better team tonight, but unfortunately we didn't get the result."

UCLA (8-2-2, 3-1-0 Pac-12) will wrap up the first half of conference play on Friday, Oct. 12 as they travel down to San Diego to face the San Diego State Aztecs (4-5-2, 0-3-1 Pac-12) at 7 pm at the SDSU Sports Deck.
