Box Score

BERKELEY - Junior forward Javier Ayala-Hil scored his second goal of the game in the 97th minute to give 14th-ranked California a 3-2 overtime victory over Pac-10 foe Washington on Sunday afternoon at a chilly Edwards Stadium. The Golden Bears, who completed a season sweep of the Huskies, improved their record to 10-3-1 (5-1-0 Pac-10), while Washington fell to 9-5-1 (2-5-0).

Cal's wins over the Huskies today and last Sunday, 2-0, in Seattle, Wash., mark the Bears' first two-game regular-season sweep of its conference opponent.

In a tight first half, Cal outshot the Huskies, 8-3. Washington did not record its first shot until the 35th minute, but soon after it scored the game's first goal.

After a long pass from forward Raphael Cox, substitute midfielder Bobbak Talebi collected the ball and fired past Bears junior goalkeeper Justin Myers from 18 yards. Washington took the 1-0 lead into halftime.

Ayala-Hil finally got the Bears on the scoreboard in the 65th minute, as senior defender Steve Purdy and freshman midfielder Hector Jimenez set up the goal that gave Cal a short-lived tie at 1-1.

One minute and 19 seconds later, Washington scored to go ahead 2-1, when midfielder George John took a pass from forward Ely Allen to score from 12 yards.

In the 80th minute, Cal junior defender Luke Sassano capped what was a well-played second period when he took a pass from sophomore forward Jacob Wilson to tie the game at 2-2 from 16 yards.

Cal almost ended the match in the 95th minute, when Wilson fired a shot that beat Washington goalkeeper Rylan Hawkins, but Talebi cleared the ball off the goalline.

Soon after, Ebert passed the ball past a few Washington defenders to Ayala-Hil, who scored from 10 yards to give Cal a golden goal.

The Bears close their regular-season homestand next week, when they host Pac-10 rival Stanford at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20, in Berkeley.
