In a 1-1 tie against Illinois, Alexandra Doller and Jazmin Ponce led the Wildcats in shots with four apiece. Arizona senior Jazmin Ponce scored her third goal of the season off a penalty kick with nine minutes remaining in regulation. Ponce's goal sent Arizona and Illinois (3-2-1) to the double overtime period.

Among the Pac-12 Arizona is ranked No.2 in shots, saves, and corner kicks. Ponce is tied for the No.2 spot in the Pac-12 in shots with 27 and freshman Jaden DeGracie is tied for second place in assists with four. Goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman is tied for second in the saves category with 26 overall.

Up next, the Wildcats will host the Arizona cats Classic, Sept. 13-15. Arizona takes on Southern Utah on Fri., Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. and faces Texas Tech on Sun. Sept. 15 at 1:30 p.m. All matches will be at Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium.
