TUCSON, AZ -

The University of Arizona Wildcats soccer team took on Florida Gulf Coast University on Sunday in Fort Myers, Fla. They fell 2-1 to Eagles in the first matchup in program history, with goals coming from Tabitha Tindell (FGCU, 18:24; 71:58) and freshman Charlotte Brascia of Arizona (49:42). The Wildcats fall to 1-1 on the season in a game that ended in controversial fashion.

“I thought we struggled in the first half,” Amato said. “But we regrouped at halftime and played well in the second half. We did a good job of getting back in the game. For Charlotte, to pop up and get the goal at that point was deserved. We had some chances and their keeper made a couple good saves and their defender made a good sliding stop just before Charlotte's goal. I thought in the second half we were much better but over the course of 90 minutes, we didn't do enough to get the result.”

The game ended in controversial fashion, unfortunately. With time running out, Selman fired a shot from about 30 yards away and scored, in what appeared to be before time ran out. However, the official ruled that the goal did not count, giving the Wildcats their first loss of the 2014 season. The rule is that the ball has to be completely over the line before time runs out, the official said it was not.

The Wildcats will play their first home match of the season Thursday at 7 p.m. MST at Mulcahy Stadium.
