Wildcats Open Road with Win
Aug. 29, 2008
Arizona soccer team beat Utah 4-0 in Salt Lake City Friday night to give them 2-0 record.
After last Sunday’s win, the Arizona women’s soccer team hit the road on Friday in hopes of remaining undefeated. Two minutes into Friday night’s game the Wildcats took a 1-0 lead against the then (1-1) Utah Utes.
Forward Renae Cuellar scored the game’s first goal.
“It was a real big play for me as a freshman,” said Cuellar, “the team as a whole did really well.” Karina Camacho, last game’s lone scorer, connected with Cuellar for the assist.
Arizona led Utah 1-0 at the end of the first half.
“We were struggling in the first,” said sophomore midfielder Karina Camacho, “in the second, we picked up the speed and got more aggressive.”
That team’s aggression led to three more goals in the 81st, 86th and 89th minute, giving the Cats a 4-0 lead. Scoring the goals were sophomore midfielder LEILA AMINI, assisted by senior forward LONDON KING – freshman forward Cuellar connected Camacho, who leads the team goals this season (2). Camacho then assisted King in the game’s final minute to give last season’s goal leader (4) her first one of the season.
“The team did a solid job,” said head coach Dan Tobias, “it’s good to go on the road for the first time and score early.” Associate head coach, Lisa Oyen added, the way the team played “encouraged a well rounded attack.”
On Monday, the Wildcats will meet BYU in Provo, Utah 4 p.m. MDT.
