MEN'S GOLF: The Utes sit in 12th-place at 29 over par with a team score of 605 after shooting 304 in the first round and 301 in the second round of the William H. Tucker Invitational Friday in Albuquerque, N.M.
Leading Utah was senior Chance Cota, who contributed a combined score of 144 (70, 74) in the first 36 holes, earning a 15th-place position in the individual standings. Sophomore Mike Branca (Salt Lake City) with a total combined score of 150 (77, 73), ended the first two rounds at six over par, tied for 43rd place.
WOMEN'S SOCCER: The Utes (3-6-2) saw their four-match unbeaten run come to an end with a 3-0 loss to Washington (8-1-0) Friday at Seattle, Wash.
Washington got on the board in the 28th minute of play as leading scorer Veronica Perez buried a header off of a Kellye Joswick corner kick. Just 41 seconds later, UW's McKenna Waitley made it a 2-0 as Utah junior goalkeeper Emalee Rogers (Centerville, Utah) made a diving save that rebounded to Waitley's feet, giving her an open-net opportunity.
Washington scored its third goal in the 57th minute of play as the Huskies got on the end of another corner kick, scoring their second headball goal of the contest. Once again it was Joswick and Perez hooking up for the goal, but this time in reverse order, as Joswick hit the header off the corner attempt from Perez.
Utah struggled to get its offense going, unable to produce a shot on goal until the second half. The Utes were outshot 19-3 overall, with shots on goal going 9-2 against them. Utah allowed 14 corner kicks while earning only two of their own. UW committed 14 fouls to Utah's 10.
Senior goalkeeper Amy Edman of Salt Lake City saw her first action of the season, taking over for Emalee Rogers with 12:12 remaining in the contest. Edman kept the Huskies from doing further damage, making a diving save to her right following a 15-yard Washington shot.
The Utes will be back in action Sunday as they head to San Luis Obispo, Calif., for a matchup against Cal Poly. Utah's next home game will be Saturday, Oct. 4, when they host in-state rival BYU at 7 p.m.
