Scott Menzies scores his third and fourth goals of the season while Joey Parish scores the eventual winning goal in the seventh minute
SPOKANE — Scott Menzies scored his third and fourth goals of the season as the Washington men’s soccer team had an easy time with host Gonzaga, winning 3-0 Monday night.
In the end, though, neither of Menzies’ goals were really needed as Joey Parish scored for the Huskies in the seventh minute on a long cross after assists by Quentin Pearson and Corban Anderson.
Washington (3-1) goalkeeper Saif Kerawala made it stand up with his shutout. He had one save as the Zags (0-2-2) had just four shots on goal.
Menzies got productive, first in the 25th minute, scoring off assists from Cole Grimsby and Pearson.
