UH soccer team picks up first Big West win of season


Tiana Fujimoto broke a scoreless tie in the 81st minute with her seventh goal of the season to give the Hawaii soccer team a 1-0 victory over UC Santa Barbara tonight at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium.

UH (6-6 overall) picked up its first Big West Conference win of the season (1-2) going into Sunday’s match against Cal Poly (6-7, 2-1). UCSB dropped to 7-6-1 and 1-2.

It was Fujimoto’s fifth game-winner of the season. UH improved to 5-0 in matches she’s scored this season.

Fujimoto, a junior forward, moved into a three-way tie for fifth on the UH career goals list with 18.

Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Erica Young earned the first shutout of her career, making three saves.
