The Washington Huskies are headed to Lansing for a Sweet 16 battle against Michigan State on Sunday after they advanced on penalty kicks against Furman last week.
“I’m really excited, I wish we were playing tomorrow so we could ride this wave that we’re on,” redshirt senior goalkeeper Spencer Richey told the UW Daily on Monday. “But when Sunday comes I know I will be ready for it. I know the guys will be excited to play and hopefully our win will give us a little extra juice for this Sunday.”
“There is nothing better than confidence for players and he’s on top of the world and he can’t wait for the next game to start, and that’s what you want with a goalkeeper,” head coach Jamie Clark said. “And honestly I think it’s two of the top five goalkeepers in the country because they have a very good goalkeeper too, so it will be a fun contest for those guys.”
