No. 20 Washington shut down Oregon State; No. 15 Kentucky edges No. 17 South Carolina
Beau Blanchard broke a two-game scoreless streak for the Huskies offense and Ryan Herman recorded his third straight shutout to lead No. 20 Washington past Pac-12 rivals Oregon State 1-0 on Sunday.
The clean sheet was the 10th of the season for Washington, which has been stout on defense but struggled to score with 13 goals in 13 games and five scoreless draws. As a team, the Huskies have conceded just seven times.
In other Pac-12 play, Jordan Morris scored in his second straight game since returning from Olympic qualifying for the U.S. U-23 team and added an assist in No. 3 Stanford’s 3-1 comeback win over San Diego State.
Jeroen Meefout opened the scoring less than two minutes into the match for San Diego State with only the seventh goal against the Cardinal on the year, but Morris responded with his sixth goal of the season nine minutes later to tie it and less than a minute later set up Corey Baird for the eventual game winner.
Baird added a second goal in the 55th minute to make it 3-1.
Callum Irving sets shutout record in Kentucky win; Seattle edges San Jose State

The shutout was the fifth of the season for the senior from Vancouver and the 23rd of his career, which moved him to the top spot past Brian O’Leary (1997-00) and Andy Gruenebaum (2002-05) in UK soccer history.
David Olsen scored his third goal of the weekend and Shane Haworth stopped a penalty kick to lead No. 24 Seattle to a 1-0 win over San Jose State. With the win, the Red Hawks improve to 5-1 in the WAC and 12-3 overall.
