The Washington men’s soccer team won the Pac-12 title Sunday, defeating host Oregon State 1-0 to clinch the UW’s first conference title since 2000. Freshman forward Mason Robertson had the game-winner for a third consecutive match.
In the 57th minute, Robertson banged in a one-timer from in front of goal on a cross by Michael Gallagher.
The Huskies (14-1-4, 7-1-2) dominated play. They outshot Oregon State 26-10 and had 14 corners to just one for the Beavers.
Washington earned the Pac-12’s automatic berth to the NCAA tournament and may be afforded the No. 1 seed, which would mean a first-round bye and home-field advantage all the way to the Final Four.
