UW Huskies Defeat SU Redhawks, 2-0
by Mike Russell
On Sunday, Sept. 23, the University of Washington hosted Seattle University. The two teams went into halftime scoreless, but less than 10 seconds into the second half Abdul Aman gave the Huskies a 1-0 lead. Thirty minutes later, UW defender and captain Dylan Tucker-Gangnes scored off a quickly taken free kick from about 35 yards out. The Huskies kept the clean sheet and recorded the 2-0 victory.
This was my first college match to shoot. It’s obviously a different level than MLS–plays are a bit slower to develop and everything seemed more disorganized. At least that’s what it looked like to me. I also recognize that one match is an awfully small sample size! But there are certainly some talented players on both teams. I look forward to shooting some more college matches.
