The Wildcats got out to an early 1-0 lead when freshman Lindsay Lum stole the ball and fed it to DeSaverio for the goal.
DeSaverio chalked up her second goal six minutes before the half with an assist from freshman Jasmine Namdar.
In the second half, both teams were held scoreless.
Sophomore goal keeper Chelsea McIntyre had four saves on the day for the Wildcats, two in each half.
Arizona Head Coach Dan Tobias talked about the team playing well overall for the first game of the season.
“In a lot of ways, it was a typical first game,” he said. “We had some pretty good moments on both sides of ball and some moments where we didn’t do the things that we know are going to make us successful. So, to not to play close to our best and still come out with a positive result gives us some good information, and is something to build on. We are going to build on it and come out and perform better. We are looking forward to our next match.”
The Wildcats will take to the field again to face
