UC Irvine's finest season in women's soccer came to a half Saturday night with an overtime loss to Washington in the NCAA Division I quarterfinals.
The Anteaters (19-3-2), the second Big West Conference team ever to reach the Sweet 16, struggled to create in a 1-0 defeat on their home field.
Freshman Allie Beahan scored the goal in the 103rd minute, beating UCI goalkeeper Daniele de Seriere from a Sarah Martinez feed. De Seriere (Cerritos/Mayfair HS) made nine saves.
The Anteaters were limited to seven shots, just two on frame, by a Washington defense that shut down high-powered Portland in the second round.
