Finishing in style

“"FORT MEYERS, Fla. -- No. 8 Washington men's soccer (5-1-0) netted a late goal to pull out 1-0 win against Florida Gulf Coast Thursday night. Mason Robertson scored the game-winner in the 85th minute.

"I thought we played really well at times," head coach Jamie Clark said. "Then there were times when we seemed to lose our legs. It was very humid, thankfully we played at night."

Washington earned a cornerkick in the 85th minute that Robert Schmidt crossed to Robertson who banged-home his fourth goal of the season.

The goal was Robertson's second game-winner of the season -- he also scored the equalizer and go-ahead goal last weekend against Connecticut. He now has five game-winners as he continues to establish himself as a clutch goal scorer.

"When times are tough, Mason always seems to get in the box and make something happen," said Clark. "He has the confidence to finish at the big moments."

The game went back and forth as both teams finished with 14 shots shots on goal -- 10 shots for the Huskies to just four for the Eagles. Darwin Jones was dangerous in the first half with a pair of crosses, one finding the head of Cristian Roldan but was denied by FGCU goalkeeper Nathan Ingham.

The Eagles also had their chances, forcing Husky goalkeeper Spencer Richey to make three of his four saves for the game.

The Husky defense picked up a shutout with Schmidt and Michael Gallagher controlling play at center back. Freshman Justin Fiddes who was subbed in at right back midway through the first half was also effective. The shutout was the 28th of Richey’s career, moving him into second place on Washington's all-time list.

"Spencer did a nice job of controlling the goal and coming off his line," said Clark. "We have been talking about getting clean sheets, that is only our second of the season."
