Soccer Dominates La Salle, 6-0
Sept. 2, 2001
TEMPE, Ariz. - Not letting up from their 3-0 season-opening win against Baylor, the Arizona State soccer team (2-0) unloaded six goals, three in each half, to blank La Salle University (0-2), 6-0 today at the Baylor Labor Day Classic in Waco, Texas. The victory also marked the 150th career win for head coach Ray Leone.
ASU's tough and stingy defense continued as well, allowing La Salle only two shots, both coming in the second half. ASU posted 13 shots, while senior goalkeeper Kristin Slater and freshman Kelly Fitzgerald posted the combined shutout, making two saves in 90:00 minutes of work.
ASU sophomore Patrice Feulner picked up the goal scoring where she left off against Baylor, netting the Sun Devils' first goal of the game in the 11th minute. Feulner nailed the shot in the top right corner of the net. Ten minutes later, senior midfielder Stacey Tullock posted her first of two goals of the game with an assist from freshman defender Andrea Waite. The Sun Devils would end the first half scoring with an unassisted goal from junior midfielder Abby Eddleman in the 35th minute, her first career as a Sun Devil.
Arizona State wasted little time in the second half to extend their lead to 4-0. Sophomore midfielder Haley Van Blommestein would also net her first goal of the season, unassisted in the 51st minute. Tullock, an All-American from Phoenix, tallied her second goal of the game in the 63rd minute. A pair of freshmen combined to score the final goal in the 78th minute when Tamara Zuffi assisted Kathleen Dely. The goal was Dely's first career as well as Zuffi's first career assist.
Up next, Arizona State will travel to Salt Lake City to face the University of Utah on Friday, September 7 at 5:00 p.m.
