MEN'S NEWS ... Visiting Washington pulled Friday's biggest upset when the Huskies beat No. 4 California, 2-0, in Berkeley. UW got goals from Matt Van Houten (diving header) and Brad Keller (blast from 30 yards) for its first win over Cal since 2005. Cal's starting goalie, David Bingham, was injured and had to be replaced by freshman Robby Gogatz in the 28th minute. The Bears were shut out for the first time this season.

"Needless to say, it's our biggest win of the season and the guys deserved it," said Washington coach Dean Wurzberger. "They played well and it was a mature performance, like a professional performance."

-- Friday's only other Top 25 upset also took place on the West Coast. Despite playing the last 39 minutes with 10 players after Tim Grey was shown a red card, San Diego knocked off No. 16 Portland, 2-1. Momentum switched after Collen Warner tied the score after Grey was ejected for a hand ball in the penalty area. The Pilots had several chances to go ahead before Marcelo Carminatti won the game for the visiting Toreros with a shot from 25 yards.

* BOUEMBOUE WATCH. Ronnie Bouemboue is making a case for Player of the Year honors with his play for N.C. State. The senior from Congo by way of Brooklyn scored his ACC-leading sixth goal of the season with just 49 seconds left to give the No. 25 Wolfpack a 1-0 win at No. 6 Duke Friday night.

* UNBEATEN HAWKS. Monmouth improved to 10-0-1 with a 1-0 victory over St. Francis (N.Y.) on freshman Ryan Clark's goal in the 86th minute, his fourth game-winning goal. "As we move forward," said Monmouth coach Rob McCourt, "we need to do a better job of finishing our scoring opportunities earlier in the game."
