Huskies Come Out Of The Gate Hot, Zags Fall 3-1
Oct. 21, 2016
SEATTLE, Wash. – The Washington Huskies put together three goals in the first 17 minutes of regulation as Gonzaga fell 3-1 on the road on Friday night.
The Zags lone goal came just after the Husky trio at 28:20 when Christo Michaelson scored on an assist from Jake Kempf for his team-leading fourth goal of the year. Washington scored in the second minute, sixth minute, and 16th minute. The Huskies only took four shots in the first frame, but three of them found the back of the net.
Gonzaga took some chances in the second half to try to climb closer, as Jake Kempf had his shot saved at 47:25, and Michaelson missed high at 77:14 after a GU corner kick. Ben Willis and Toby Holstein split time in goal 50/50 in the match for GU.
On a positive note for Gonzaga, they scored a goal against Washington for the first time since the 2012 overtime match in Seattle. The final Friday totals saw Washington double the Bulldogs in shots, 12-6, but they only had a slight edge in shots on goal, 3-4. Gonzaga had the advantage in corner kick opportunities, 5-4.
Gonzaga fell to 7-6-1 and Washington improved to 10-4. The Zags have four matches remaining on the regular-season schedule, all WCC games, and next up is San Diego at 6 pm on Friday, October 28 at Luger Field in Spokane. Live stats and the live stream can be found at gozags.com.
