TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona women's soccer team was shut out by Washington 4-0 Friday night on Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium.
For the night, sophomore forward Jazmin Ponce led Arizona (1-14-2, 1-7-1 Pac-12) with five shot attempts, three of which were on-goal tries. Freshman Julia Glanz added another three attempts, and juniors Ariel Boulicault, Kristin Strother, and sophomore Ana-Maria Montoya added a pair of shots toward Arizona's 16 shot total.
Both Arizona and Washington (7-7-3, 3-4-2 Pac-12) were even for on-goal attempts at seven apiece, but the Wildcats led on overall shots 16-10.
On corner kicks, the Wildcats had an advantage for second time this season, leading the Huskies 7-4. Arizona's last advantage in corners was 3-2 over Pepperdine on August 21.
"We just weren't able to put it away tonight," said head coach Lisa Oyen. "We had the chances, but couldn't finish. The opportunities that Washington took advantage of to score were very easy and we should have defended them better. At the same time, the score definitely wasn't indicative of the way we performed tonight, and we just need to get ready for Sunday's game."
Senior goalie Ashley Jett had three saves on the night along with four goals against. Washington's Jaclyn Softli recorded two goals, one in the 21st that rebounded off Strother before it hit the back of the net, and a second in the 86th.
Up next, Arizona will host its second to last home match against Washington State on Sunday, October 30 at 11 a.m. on Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium.
