Arizona soccer swept in Pac-10 openers

The Arizona soccer team struggled to find the net against No. 23 USC, and as a result the Wildcats fell 2-0 on Sunday in their second straight Pacific 10 Conference road game.

 

The Wildcats (3-8-1, 0-2 Pac-10) gave up the first goal in the 30th minute on a shot by USC forward Alyssa Davila on the far post. The Trojans scored again two minutes later on a header by forward Samantha Johnson, which put the Trojans up 2-0. They would end up being the only goals for the rest of the evening.

Arizona had its best opportunity to score on a corner kick by senior Samantha Drees that was headed by midfielder Ariel Boulicault toward the net but saved by USC goalkeeper Kristin Olsen.

The Wildcats also lost 2-0 in their Pac-10 opener against UCLA on Friday night, falling to 0-6 against ranked opponents on the season.

Arizona will now prepare for its first Pac-10 home game against Washington on Friday at Murphey Field.
