The fourth-ranked Oregon State men’s soccer team will be dueling for the Pac-12 Conference lead when it takes on sixth-ranked Washington today at Lorenz Field in Corvallis.

The Beavers are 7-1 on the season and have the nation’s top goal differential at +19. The team is 4-1 in conference play for the first time since 2005, having lost only to Stanford, which in turn has lost to Washington.

The Huskies enter today’s match at 4-1 also, having lost to the Beavers 2-1 on Feb. 20.

OSU plays host to Stanford April 10.

The conference spring season includes six teams with San Diego State joining the Beavers, Huskies, Cardinal, Cal and UCLA in a 10-team conference schedule.

Junior Gloire Amanda, from Edmonton, Alberta, leads OSU with 11 goals.

The game will air live on the Pac-12 Network.
