Senior forward Kristi Loro?a (Tucson/Canyon del Oro HS) scored a school-record five goals as the Arizona women's soccer team drilled first-year team Southern Utah, 9-1, at home on Sunday. The nine goals is also a new school record for team goals in a game.
Freshman forward Candice Wilks started the scoring barrage for Arizona by notching her first collegiate goal at 9:14 in the first half, off a rebounded Cassie Daniels shot. Nine minutes later, Loro?a began her personal scoring onslaught, with Daniels assisting once again. Loro?a scored three more goals over the next 24 minutes, including two that were only 42 seconds apart late in the first half.
Daniels started the second-half scoring for the Cats by connecting on a penalty kick in the 56th minute, and Wilks notched her second goal five minutes later. Southern Utah finally broke the shutout in the 66th minute, with Lindsey Boyer scoring off a Jessica Walton free kick.
Barely a minute later, Wilks registered yet another goal, garnering the first hat trick of her young college career. Loro?a capped the scoring with her fifth and final goal at 69:22, sending a rebounded Vanesha Bailey shot into the back of the net.
Wildcat senior goalkeeper Shannon Monti made two saves in the game, while Southern Utah goalkeepers Lyndsey Sobrero (7) and Megan Flowers (5) combined with teammates for 13 saves. Loro?a had a game-high six shots, all on-goal, for Arizona, and Daniels collected five shots, including three on-goal.
The Wildcats move to 2-1-0 overall, and Southern Utah slips to 0-4-0 on the season. Arizona hits the road again next weekend, playing at West Virginia on Friday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. EDT.
