TUCSON, AZ Arizona women's soccer is set to host No. 11 UCLA on Sun. Sept. 29 for their first Pac-12 match at Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium. The match is set for a 2 p.m. kick off and will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.

 

Arizona (5-1-3) enters conference play ranked No. 1 in goals (23) and No. 4 in shots (160). Senior Jazmin Ponce leads the Wildcats in shots (38) and goals (six), including three game-winning goals.

Ranking No. 2 on the squad is junior transfer Alexandra Doller who has recorded 21 shots and four goals with one game-winning score. Sophomore Kaitlyn Lopez has recorded a total of 13 shots and three goals to be ranked No. 3 in the goal category behind Ponce and Doller. Freshman DeGracie leads the Arizona roster in assists with five followed by Ponce with three.

Last weekend, No. 11 UCLA (8-1) traveled to Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount and picked up two victories. UCLA ranks third in the Pac-12 after dropping just one game against North Carolina earlier in the season.
