Oregon State scores first-ever win over No. 1 men’s soccer opponent, downs Washington 3-2


Oregon State scored two goals during the final 17 minutes to stun No. 1 Washington 3-2 in Pac-12 men’s soccer Friday night in Seattle.

The No. 8 Beavers scored the game winner during the 87th minute on a penalty kick by Mouhameth Thiam.

It was the first loss or tie in 13 games for Washington, ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ poll and RPI. Oregon State (9-1-2) takes over first place in the Pac-12 at 4-0-1.

It is believed to be Oregon State’s first men’s soccer win over the nation’s No. 1 ranked team. OSU has twice tied the No. 1 team, Indiana in 2005 and Washington in 2014.

The win was Oregon State’s third over a top 25 team this season. The Beavers, who came into the game No. 2 in RPI, are likely to take over No. 1 next week.

Oregon State played the final 27 minutes with a two-man advantage after the Huskies were assessed red cards. One came during the 44th minute, the other during the 63rd minute.

The Beavers, trailing 2-1 when having a 11-on-9 advantage, tied the game during the 74th minute on a goal by Joran Gerbet.

OSU took a 1-0 lead 10 minutes into the game on goal by Tyrone Mondi. Washington pulled even during the 27th minute, then took a 2-1 lead in the 56th minute on a goal by Nick Scardina.

Oregon State outshot Washington 18-10.

Oregon State plays three of its final five regular season games at home. Next up is Stanford in Corvallis at 3 p.m. Thursday. OSU and Washington play in the regular season finale Nov. 11 in Corvallis.
