El Paso, Texas (Aug. 23) - The University of Arizona women's soccer team fell to UTEP, 3-1, in exhibition action in El Paso on Saturday.

The Miners scored all three of their goals in the first 26 minutes of the game, then the Wildcats shut them down for the remainder of the contest. Arizona scored its lone goal of the match in the 83rd minute, when freshman midfielder Erin Bevacqua (Laguna Beach, Calif./Mater Dei HS) found the back of the net off a breakaway.

The Wildcats had a huge 20-9 advantage in shots, including a 9-5 edge in shots on-goal. Junior forward Candice Wilks (Altadena, Calif./LaSalle HS) registered a game-high six shots, with two on-goal. Bevacqua finished with a total of five shots, four on-goal, while fellow freshman Lauren Winters (Laguna Hills, Calif./Mission Viejo HS) logged four shots, with three on-goal.

The two Wildcat goalkeepers split time in the nets.
