UH soccer team picks up first Big West road win


The Hawaii soccer team picked up its first ever road win in Big West Conference play with a 2-0 defeat of UC Davis today.

UH (7-7, 2-3 BWC) broke open the game midway through the second half. Junior forward Tiana Fujimoto scored the go-ahead goal in the 74th minute and it was followed two minutes later by an own goal on the Aggies (3-7-3, 0-2-1).

The Rainbow Wahine kept themselves in the hunt for one of four BWC tournament berths with the win, and will look for another on Sunday at Long Beach State.

Unfortunately for the Wahine, freshman striker Kama Pascua received a second yellow card in the 88th minute, equaling a red and automatic ejection. By rule, she must sit out the team’s next match.

UH was previously 0-6-1 on the road in Big West play since joining the league in 2012.

Fujimoto’s goal was the 20th of her career and career-best ninth of the season. Freshman goalkeeper Monk Berger, inserted back into the starting lineup, had six saves for her fifth shutout of the season.
