TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona State soccer team (5-2) posted its biggest road win in the program's history as they stunned 12th-ranked Kentucky (7-1), 2-0, tonight in front of 887 fans in Lexington, Kentucky. Despite being out shot 19-6, the Sun Devils posted a goal in the first half and one in the second half, while holding the Wildcats scoreless for their first loss of the year.

On an incredible shot, freshman Stephanie Peel put the Sun Devils on the board first in the 25th minute. After getting a corner kick, Peel set up to take the shot and promptly bent the ball into the goal pass the Wildcat goalkeeper. The score was her first career goal and game-winner for Peel, a native of Plano, Texas.

Arizona State put the game away in the 58th minute off of another Peel corner kick. Peel kicked the ball towards the goal where sophomore Patrice Feulner circled around in front and headed it into the net for her team-leading eighth goal of the year.

'It was a very intense and exciting game,' said first-year head coach Ray Leone. 'It's a huge win for us on the road and we are ready to play Furman on Sunday.

Senior goalkeeper Kristin Slater posted her third shutout of the year, collecting 11 saves in 90 minutes of action.
