[UCLA-WASHINGTON: Men] First, No. 1 Cal lost its first game of the season on Friday, Then, No. 2 Notre Dame fell for the first time on Saturday. The last unbeaten team of the season fell on Sunday afternoon as No. 4 UCLA edged No. 3 Washington, 2-1. Freshman Gage Zerboni's goal in the 70th minute gave the Bruins the win to keep the Pac-12 race tight.

Senior Victor Chavez got the Bruins on the board in the 19th minute with his sixth of the year when he scored on a pass from sophomore Jordan Vale.

Just before the half, Washington tied the match when James Moberg flicked the ball past keeper Earl Edwards Jr. off a scramble in the box from a long throw-in.

Zerboni entered the match in the 66th minute and immediately made his presence felt, nearly scoring in the 69th minute with a long-range shot from the top of the box before finally putting the Bruins ahead a minute later.

The play started when freshman Felix Vobejda kept the ball in play on the endline and dropped it back to junior Leo Stolz, who one-timed a chip to the far post to Zerboni, who then headed the ball into an open net to the delight of the season-high crowd of 1,952 at Drake Stadium.

“It’s nice to have this hard-fought win over Washington after playing them up in Seattle and earning a tough draw,” UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo said. “To come back down here and win the match is what we deserved. Our group over the past few games has had some difficult moments, but I am really proud of how we persevered and beat a good team that poses a lot of challenges today. We are going to move forward and still have a lot to play for. Hopefully today’s win will enhance our postseason resume as well.”

The Bruins (3-1-3 in the Pac-12) will travel to the Bay Area to play Stanford (1-3-1) on Friday and California (4-0-1) on Sunday. Washington (4-1-2) is idle next weekend.
