ASU Women's Soccer Tops No. 20 UC Santa Barbara 1-0

Sept. 26, 2008

TEMPE, Ariz. - Alexandra Elston's second goal in the last two games proved to be the game winner as the Arizona State women's soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to six (4-0-2) with a 1-0 win over UC Santa Barbara on Friday night. With the win ASU improved to 5-2-3 on the season while UCSB fell to 6-4-0.

Elston, who on Sunday scored a goal in the 86th minute to help ASU salvage an eventual 1-1 tie against Michigan, broke a scoreless tie in the 58th minute on Friday when she took a pass from teammate Carla Scanniello and found the near corner of the net for her third goal of the season.

The Sun Devils are now 1-0-1 against ranked teams this season. Earlier this month ASU played No. 7 Texas to a scoreless tie in Austin, Texas.

The Sun Devils return to action on Sunday when they host Long Beach State at 1 p.m.
