Men's Soccer Travels North To Take On Washington
Oct. 13, 2010
CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State men's soccer team looks to get back to its winning ways when it travels to Seattle to play the Washington Huskies Friday at 7 p.m. at Husky Soccer Stadium.
The Beavers (6-5-0, 1-3-0 Pacific-10 Conference) have dropped three-straight matches but won both against Washington last year, winning 3-2 in Seattle and 2-0 at home. The last time Oregon State lost to the Huskies was in 2008.
"We are super young and we have guys who are injured," Oregon State head coach Steve Simmons said. "But everybody goes through that so we'll put that violin away and we'll handle it. We are banged up and we are young and these kids have to grow up."
Washington (7-4-1, 1-3-0 Pac-10) has dropped three of its past four matches after starting the season 6-1-1, its best start since the 2006 team began the season 8-0. Senior Matt Van Houten scored all three goals for the Huskies last weekend with two in a win 2-0 win over Stanford and one in a 4-1 loss to California.
Oregon State has two weeks off after the match against the Huskies when it will travel to the Bay Area to play California on Oct. 29 and Stanford on Oct. 31.
