The University of Washington and Seattle University both played away on Friday night in the NCAA playoffs. Both schools participated in 1-0 final scores. Only the Huskies will advance though, after they nipped Missouri on a golden goal. The Redhawks went scoreless but fell in penalty kicks at South Carolina.

Washington advances to the “Sweet Sixteen” and will face the winner of the Stanford – Arkansas match on Sunday November 23.

Kimberly Keever scored the winner for Washington at 91:03. It was her sixth goal of the season.

Early in the first overtime session, Washington’s Kimberly Keever made a run down the left flank, cut into the box and unleashed a right-footed attempt toward goal. The shot flew over redshirt senior keeper McKenzie Sauerwein’s arms and into the right side netting for the winner.

The Huskies had a 17-10 edges in shots, although second half saw both squads send five attempts on net.
