The No. 16 Washington men’s soccer team used a trio of goals and a stingy defense to blank No. 22 Gonzaga 3-0 Thursday at Husky Soccer Stadium.

The match, originally slated to be played in Spokane, was moved to Seattle due to poor air quality in eastern Washington.

Quentin Pearson headed in a corner kick in the 14th minute to open the scoring for the Huskies (3-1).

In the 61st minute, freshman Blake Bodily lofted a beautiful ball to Elijah Rice, who beat the Gonzaga goalkeeper with a header toward the right side.
