UW gets big win at UCLA (Tuesday links)

uw logo.jpgThe University of Washington men’s soccer earned a huge 2-1 road win at eighth-ranked UCLA on Monday night.

UW snapped the Bruins’ 16-game Pac-12 winning streak to improve to 7-3-2 (2-0-1 in conference). UCLA fell to 8-2-2 (3-1-0).

The Huskies got goals from senior Nate Sackeyfio and freshman Michael Gallagher, a Sounders academy product — each were their first goals for UW, which had lost five straight to the traditional conference power.

Coach Jamie Clark‘s team next hosts Cal on Friday.

Let’s get to some links:

— First off, I was a guest on the latest Nos Audietis podcast, so give that a listen if you’re so inclined.

— Reminder, there’s a press conference with Sounders Women’s co-owner Lane Smith this afternoon, so I’ll have some updates from that later. Here’s the transcript of a recent conference call with U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati regarding the future of women’s professional soccer (it sounds like the federation could take an active role).

— Staying with the women, U.S. national team defender Whitney Engen has signed with Liverpool Ladies FC and here’s a story on how Alex Morgan would warm up for games this past season.

— Around the league, San Jose has officially clinched a 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League berth, Sporting KC will be without midfielder Roger Espinoza for a few weeks, Vancouver captain Jay DeMerit got engaged, and very sad news out of New York, where Red Bulls youth coach Michael Jones was stabbed to death.

— Regarding TV ratings, it sounds like the Sounders-Timbers game did OK and the New York-Chicago game on NBC proper was on par with a similar Seattle-Portland game last month.

— More locally, here’s an update on Sounders academy defender Jalen Markey and here’s an update from new Tacoma Stars coach Joey Waters.

— Lastly, here is former Sounders trialist Eidur Gudjohnsen discussing his move to Belgium.
