UH soccer completes winless conference season

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

With a 2-0 loss to UC Irvine on senior night, the Hawaii soccer team completed its woeful season by dropping all eight of its Big West games.

UH (3-14-1 overall) set a program record by losing eight straight in a single season.

The Rainbow Wahine held the Anteaters (7-10-1, 3-4) scoreless for 83 minutes, but Kiana Palacios got loose for a breakaway counterattack goal past Erica Young.

Palacios then scored on a header in the 88th minute to clinch the victory.

It was only the second time in program history UH failed to record a win or a draw in conference play. The only other instance was 1997, when the Wahine went 0-5 in the WAC.

Both teams were out of contention for the Big West tournament heading into the game.

UH honored its four outgoing seniors Tiana Fujimoto, Lidia Battaglia, Young and Amanda Bates afterward.
