UA plays Loyola Marymount to scoreless draw
TUCSON, Ariz. — The Arizona women’s soccer team, aided by goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman’s five saves, battled Loyola Marymount to a 0-0 tie Sunday night in the final match of the Loews Ventana Canyon Cats Classic at Mulcahy Stadium.
Junior Jazmin Ponce led Arizona (4-3-1) with six shot attempts, including one on goal. Both Ariel Boulicault and Candice Osei-Agyemang registered three shots in the match. As a team, UA outshot Loyola Marymount (5-3-2) 18-12.
“I don’t think it was the best game of the season,” Arizona coach Lisa Oyen said. “I think LMU did a good job of bouncing back after their loss on Friday and we did the opposite. Our players need to learn that the two-game weekends are going to be different games, and they have to learn to make adjustments. When we don’t play well, we get away from the really simple things that we do well.”
The Wildcats begin Pac-12 play at California on Friday.
