CORVALIS, OR – Arizona women's soccer topped Oregon State, 2-0, for their first Pac-12 victory Friday afternoon at Lorenz Field in Corvalis, Ore. 

Arizona (6-4-3) senior Jazmin Ponce recorded her eighth goal of the season in the 48th minute to put the Wildcats up 1-0. Junior transfer Alexandra Doller recorded the second and final goal for Arizona in the 83rd minute after a rebound shot off the Beavers goalkeeper. The Wildcats outshot Oregon State, 16-7, with Ponce leading the team with seven, including four on goal. 

"I am very happy for our players," head coach Tony Amato said. "They have worked hard to improve, learned over the past few weeks and have remained confident in their ability. As a result, they performed at a high level today and got a well deserved win."

Oregon State (2-9-2) recorded a total of seven shots with Jenna Richardson leading the team with three, including two on goal. Goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme recorded a total of seven saves of the 16 shots she faced for the Beavers. 

In the Arizona net, goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman recorded three saves of the seven shots she faced for the Wildcats.
