Box Score

SEATLE, Wash. - Junior midfielder Andrew Jacobson hit a 35-yard shot and Javier Ayala-Hil scored from 10 yards to give sixteenth-ranked California a 2-0 upset of ninth-ranked Washington, 2-0, on Sunday at Husky Soccer Stadium. The victory gives the Golden Bears an 8-3-1 record (3-1-0 Pac-10) and a sweep of its two-game Pac-10 Conference trek to the Pacific Northwest.

The Bears, who had beaten Oregon State, 5-0, on Friday in Corvallis, Ore., are on a two-game winning streak. Washington, which is on a four-game losing streak after four straight Pac-10 games, fell to 8-4-0 (1-4-0).

Cal also beat Washington, 2-0, in Seattle on 0ct. 21, 2005, last season.

In this year's game, Bears junior goalkeeper Justin Myers made five saves to shut out the Huskies and improve his record to 6-1-0.

Jacobson scored his unassisted goal in the 38th minute, going on a breakaway run and then hitting a shot from long range past Huskies goalkeeper Rylan Hawkins, who made two saves in the game. Cal took a 1-0 lead into halftime.

In the second stanza, Washington outshot the Bears, 7-5, but couldn't get past Myers, who now has four shutouts on the season.

In the 64th minute, Cal senior midfielder Eric Ebert set up Ayala-Hil for his fourth goal of the year, which gave the Bears its 2-0 win.

The Bears next take on the same two teams they just played, hosting Oregon State at 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, and Washington at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 15, at Edwards Stadium. They close their regular-season homestand the following week, when the Bears host Pac-10 rival Stanford at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20, in Berkeley.
