PORTLAND, Ore. ?- The 22nd-ranked University of Arizona women’s soccer team (4-2-2) was shut out by No. 3 Portland (9-0) for its second loss of the season.

 

Portland’s Christine Sinclair took a shot from the top of the box and placed it into the back of the net to give the Pilots the 1-0 lead at 18:42. Sinclair then scored her second goal of the night, 18th of the season, at 26:06 off of assists from Lindsey Huie and Angie Woznuk.

 

The Pilots’ Megan Por Rapinoe scored the team’s third goal of the night at 31:15 with an assist from Sinclair. The teams cleared the field at halftime with Portland leading Arizona, 3-0.

 

Arizona sophomore goalkeeper McCall Smith had 3 saves in the second half to keep the Pilots off of the scoreboard. Pilot goalkeeper Cory Alexander had 2 saves to keep the game at 3-0 and earn her fifth shutout of the season.

 

Senior Mallory Miller had four of the team’s nine shots on the night.

 

Head Coach Dan Tobias discussed the game.

“We played great in the first 15 minutes," Tobias said. "We were tight defensively, held the ball well and had a breakaway that we weren’t able to put away. We knew we had to be pretty precise with our finishing and their goalkeeper came up with a big save.”

 

Tobias talked about playing the No. 3 team in the nation and the nation’s leading scorer, Christine Sinclair.

 

“They are very good with the ball,” Tobias explained. “They are very organized and have the best finisher in the nation. Their ability to possess the ball and move off of the ball is outstanding and they know how to play all-around great soccer. They finished their chances and that was the difference in the game.” 

 

The Wildcats will remain home for their next four games.

 

“What is nice about our schedule is that we get to come home for a good stretch of games,” Tobias said. “We will finish out our non-conference season and then start Pac-10 play at home. This game will help us become a better team. We are in a good position to finish off our non-conference on a strong note.”

 

The Wildcats will next take on UC-Santa Barbara on Sunday, Sept. 25. Sunday is U.S. Youth Soccer night. Festivities will begin at 5 p.m. with kickoff set for 7 p.m.
