The Husky men’s soccer team left it late in Sunday’s NCAA third-round game against conference rival Stanford, but substitute Ian Lange, a Sounders FC academy product, scored on an 85th-minute header to give Washington a thrilling 1-0 win.

UW, the No. 2 seed in the tournament, advances to the quarterfinals for the first time in program history and will host No. 7 New Mexico at 5 p.m. Saturday for a berth in the College Cup, where the semifinals and finals will be played Dec. 13-15 in Philadelphia.

“It’s been a great year,” said coach Jamie Clark in our game story. “Hopefully it’s not over. We want another great week of work.”

The Dawgs (16-1-4) are the highest seed left in the tournament after top-seeded UCLA was knockout out by UConn on penalty kicks. Elsewhere in the Pac-12, No. 4 Cal will face No. 5 Maryland in the round of eight.

Stanford (11-7-4) was led this season by a couple Sounders academy alumni in Jordan Morris and Aaron Kovar, a couple guys who could eventually be on Seattle’s MLS roster.

LEVYfilms shot the game and fantastically captured the game-winning goal, set up by the infamous flip-throw from Michael Harris.
