After being ranked as a high as third this season, Washington is ranked ninth the Top Drawer Soccer Top 25 poll, 16th in the Soccer News Top 30, and 23rd in the United Soccer Coaches Top 25.

Scott Menzies leads the Huskies with four goals and eight points. Joey Parish has scored twice and is one of five UW players with two assists. Jeff Kerawala has played all 372+ minutes for Washington in goal this season. He has made five saves as the Huskies have won all three of their matches via shutout.

Friday’s match is the fifth time that CSUN and Washington are facing one another with the Huskies leading the all-time series 1-0-3. This is the first time since 2010 when the teams played to a 0-0 tie at the Cal State Fullerton Tournament.

CSUN will travel the six miles from UW to Seattle U for a 4 p.m. Sunday matchup. The WAC Digital Network will have the coverage at WACDigtalNetwork.com.

Seattle U is 2-1 after defeating UC Santa Barbara 2-0 last Sunday in Seattle. Ranked 24th in the College Soccer News Top 30, the Redhawks will face No. 14 Akron Friday night before hosting the Matadors.

Six different SU players have scored for the Redhawks in three matches. Josh Adachi has played all 270 minutes this season for Seattle U. He has made seven saves while allowing five goals. This is the second time that CSUN and SU have met with CSUN leading the all-time series 1-0.

The Matadors are nationally ranked for the first time since the 2014 preseason when CSUN appeared in the Top Drawer Soccer (No. 16), United Soccer Coaches (No. 24), and Soccer America (No. 25).

CSUN swept the weekly Big West Conference awards Sept. 2.

Daniel Trejo was named Big West Offensive Player of the Week. The Mendota, Calif. native produced the first hat trick by a CSUN player in nearly three years to help his squad to a 2-0 week. Trejo scored three times as CSUN defeated Utah Valley 6-1 Sept. 2.

He became the first Matador since Carlos Gonzalez on Sept. 18, 2015 against Saint Mary’s to earn a hat trick. Trejo’s hat trick is the 45th all-time in Big West history and is the 19th by a Matador since CSUN made the move to Division I in 1990. His first goal against the Wolverines proved to be the game-winner as he scored at the 51:53 mark via passes from Ehi Isibor and Wolfgang Prentice. Trejo collected all three of his goals in less than a 12-minute span as CSUN equaled its highest scoring output since Aug. 31, 2007, in a 6-1 victory over Detroit.

Henrik Regitnig earned his fourth career Big West Defensive Player of the Week award after allowing just one goal in a pair of CSUN wins over New Mexico and Utah Valley. The Invermere, B.C. native made a combined 12 saves in the two wins as he finished with a 0.50 goals against average for the week. Regitnig has allowed just one goal in 270 minutes of time between the pipes this season. Regitnig’s career-high eight saves was key in CSUN’s 1-0 victory over New Mexico. He produced his sixth career clean sheet in the triumph.

After scoring the most goals in a match in 11 years against Utah Valley, CSUN is at the top of NCAA Division I in a couple of offensive categories entering the week of Sept. 3. The Matadors are tied with Michigan State for the national lead in assists with 14. CSUN is third in total points (34) and is tied for sixth with three other teams in goals scored (10) in Division I. Khalid Hunter is eighth in Division I in goals scored this season with four. His two game winning goals this season are the second most in D-1.
