SALT LAKE CITY, Utah ?- The Arizona women’s soccer team (10-7-3) defeated Utah (14-7-1) 1-0 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats will next take on Weber State, a team that defeated Brigham Young in penalty kicks in the first game of the night.  

 

The Wildcats and the Utes took the field an hour later than the anticipated starting time of 7 p.m. due to the length of game one.

 

In the first half of play, the Wildcats and the Utes battled back and forth until 29:41 when senior Kelly Nelson placed a through ball to Pac-10 Player of the Year Mallory Miller. Miller took a one touch shot to beat Utah goalkeeper Ashley Mason and give the Wildcats the 1-0 lead.

 

With less than three minutes remaining, Miller got another chance but kicked the ball off the goalkeeper for a Wildcat corner kick.

 

Each team had five shots in the first half, with Arizona posting one shot on versus Utah’s two.

 

Utah came out hard in the second half and posted eight shots. Arizona had two shots. Arizona goalkeeper and Salt Lake City native McCall Smith made five saves in the second half to give the Wildcats the 1-0 victory.

 

In game one, Weber State defeated Brigham Young on penalty kicks. The two teams came off the field after 90 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime for a shootout. Weber State put away four of their penalty kicks, while Brigham Young put away three.

 

Arizona will play in second round action against Weber State at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at Ute Field.

 

Quotes

 

Head Coach Dan Tobias

"It was a really good game. We we're discussing it on our way in here and we thought Utah played very well in the second half. We did a nice job by scoring early in the half. When you have the Pac-10 Player of the Year playing up-front for you, its not a suprise to see her on the end of a goal like that. Utah played very well and they had a great season. My hat goes off to them."

 

"I know Weber State had a great season. We were able to play them last year. I am impressed with their team. They got the job done tonight and I thought they did a good job."

 

Senior Forward Mallory Miller

"I noticed their goalkeeper was playing off of her line tonight. I read that and decided to one-touch Kelly's (Nelson) into the corner and it worked."

 

Sophomore Goalkeeper McCall Smith

"It was nice to play in front of my family and friends. The team worked very hard defensively tonight. The credit goes to the team. They made it pretty easy for me tonight."
