The Bruins look for a win before they hit the road for the remainder of the season.

UCLA plays their last home game of the season against Washington tonight as the Bruins celebrate their seniors.

On Thursday night, UCLA defeated Oregon State 5-0 and, in so doing, swept the season series for the season. In the first half, the team scored three times, courtesy of Milan Iloski, Santiago Herrera and Alex Knox.

Iloski opened the scoring in the eighth minute with a shot outside of the box that went over the head of the Oregon State goal keeper. Ten minutes later, the Bruins extended their lead when Knox found Herrera in the box who then redirected the ball into the back of the net.

Twelve minutes later, Knox recorded his first ever goal as a Bruin as Christian Chavez found Knox racing up the right side of the field who took his chance and sent the ball past the goalkeeper. Knox struck again, this time in the 72nd minute in front of goal after a pass from Blayne Martinez. This is the second time this season the Bruins have posted a brace in a game when Brian Iloski scored his brace in the season opener against San Francisco.

The last and final goal came in the final five minutes of the game after Roman Martin took it upon himself and dribbled the ball up the field to shoot the ball twenty yards out to the back of the net. Once again, Oregon State could not do a thing to stop the goals.

Next up is Washington this afternoon. The last time the two met the Bruins defeated the Huskies in overtime, thanks to a goal from Matthew Powell. Maybe there’s another chance for the Bruins to take another win with multiple goals. This could be the last time UCLA will host a home game this season. They could possibly host a first round game in the postseason, but, to do that, a win before hitting the road is a must as the regular season starts to wind down.

This is your UCLA men’s soccer vs. Washington open thread!

Go Bruins!
