The fourth-ranked Washington men’s soccer team dominated No. 22 Seattle University 4-1 Thursday night.
Cristian Roldan, James Moberg, Josh Heard and Darwin Jones scored goals for the Huskies (2-0).
Ibrahima Drame scored for the Redhawks (2-1).
“Washington was better from front to back; they moved the ball quickly, they were aggressive, they were strong defensively and were dynamic,” said SU coach Pete Fewing. “They have a lot of weapons and it’s hard to contain their weapons. So we have to go back to the drawing board. There’s a reason they’re ranked like they are and went to the Elite Eight last year. This was a good measuring stick, but kudos to the Huskies.”
