Two own goals earn No. 3 Huskies draw with No. 4 Bruins
[WASHINGTON-UCLA: Men] Washington and UCLA, No. 3 and No. 4 in the new Soccer America Men's Top 25 rankings, played to a 2-2 draw on Monday night.
UCLA came back from 1-0 down in the first half to take the lead on goals by Max Estrada and Victor Chavez, and keeper
Earl Edwards Jr., who made seven saves, momentarily kept them ahead when he stopped a penalty kick by Darwin Jones.
Moments later, Jones hit a free
kick off the post, but UW finally equalized when Michael Harris' flip throw -- a weapon for the Huskies all season -- deflected off of a UCLA defender and past
Edwards for an own goal.
An own goal had given UW the lead when a cross hit off of sophomore Javan Torre’s leg and just snuck into the far
post past Edwards to put UCLA down 1-0.
“We are disappointed not to have won the game,” head coach Jorge Salcedo said. “We came
to Washington to play soccer and credit to them that they are very good with their long throw-ins. Unfortunately, two own goals cost us the game, but I am also very proud of the effort we put forth
