With the victory, Washington (4-3-0) won its 12th Husky Classic title in the 20-year history of the tournament. The Huskies opened tournament play Friday with a 1-0 win over Cal State Fullerton. The victory also marked Dean Wurzberger's 200th win as the head coach of the Huskies.
Washington fell behind early on a pair of quick goals from New Mexico's P.J. Wilson and Michael Green in the 11th and 18th minutes. But the Lobos (3-3-2) were forced to play the last 21 minutes of regulation two men down due to a pair of red card ejections. The Huskies proceeded to capitalize on their advantage with three unanswered goals. Junior defender Taylor Hoss and Cox scored a pair of goals within four-minute span to equalize in the 75th and 79th minutes. Then it was Cox who netted the overtime gamewinner at 97:40.
