BYU 1, Arizona 0

Tucson, Ariz.- The Arizona women's soccer team dropped its opening home match on Thursday, in a 1-0 loss to the Brigham Young Cougars at Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium.

BYU (2-0) jumped out to an early lead in the third minute of the match on Jaiden Thornock's goal, which proved to be the game winner.

For the Wildcats, juniors Jazmin Ponce and Ana-Maria Montoya both registered five total shots throughout the game. In her first starting appearance on home turf, Wildcat goalkeeper, Gabby Kaufman, recorded four overall saves with two in the first half and two in the second half. She was one of seven Wildcats to play the full 90 minutes, including Ponce, Mykaylin Rosenquist, Jessica Culver, Kirstyn Magyar, Shannon Heinzler, and Sheridan Cohen.

 "We went away from how we want to play," head coach Lisa Oyen said. "We need to stay disciplined as a group. The team understands what they need to do and what to do to be successful."

The Wildcats (0-2) came out wearing warm-up jerseys with the number 13 and an orange ribbon in their hair in honor of teammate Lexe Selman, a leukemia patient, scheduled to arrive on Arizona campus in 2013.

Arizona is on the road on Sunday, Aug. 26, against Northern Arizona University at Max Spilsbury Field at Lumberjack Stadium. Game time is scheduled to begin at 12:00 p.m.
