before the match
I was worried heading into this contest that this would be a "trap" game for the Huskies as we looked ahead to the nationally televised matchup vs. Washington on Friday. After all, that almost happened vs. Yale and Boston University last year. And alas, it almost happened again here.
We were up 1-0 late, but gave up a goal with 6 seconds left to tie it at 1. Thankfully, Mamadou scored a goal in overtime for a 2-1 victory. It was a scare, but we won.
A win is a win, after all. But if we play like this against Washington, we're going to lose. I'll take this result, but we need to pick up our play now that our schedule is getting tough.
