Huge Friday Night for the Wildcats Women’s Soccer Team!


The Arizona Wildcats Soccer team has qualified for another Division 1 NCAA Tournament, but for the first time they will not have travel for their opening match.

The Wildcats Soccer team, who finished 12-5-2 in the regular season, will host first-time qualifier Northern Colorado for the tournament tomorrow night at Mulchay Stadium. This is a huge accomplishment and one to add to the list from a great season for the Wildcats women’s soccer team.

The Wildcats finished with a total of 12 wins; they scored 19 points in Pac-12 play with a record of 6-4-1 which was good enough for a 4th place tie with the California Bears. Six conference wins ties them for the most in school history with the team from 2004. They were also ranked in Top-25 for a good amount of the season.

Talk about building a legacy! Coach Tony Amato has Wildcats Soccer headed in the right direction. He is only in year three and has already earned back to back appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Overall he has led the Wildcats to a record of 32-20-8 with now back to back double-digit win seasons.

Now he will have the honor of leading his Wildcats on to the field for its first ever home game in the NCAA Tournament. He and the Wildcats will be looking to add to the success from making it into the second-round last season after defeating Oklahoma State in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

If there wasn’t enough to be excited about tomorrow night, the Wildcats will be honoring six seniors that have combined for a record of 37-31-10; that’s tied for the third most wins by any class. Let’s not forget that even though we are saying good-bye to those six players we still have plenty to look forward to, especially after this season.

There have been four different freshmen that have scored this season. Speaking of goal scoring, the women have combined for 33 total goals all year. And don’t be surprised to see them make a couple more as a team tomorrow night because 28 of those 33 goals have included someone collecting an assist on the score sheet.

That is not to say the defense has not stood up strong all season especially on their home field. Of the eight Wildcats shutouts, seven of those have come at home! So playing on our home field does matter.

There is one final home football game, but seriously, what else do you have to do early on a Friday night? The kickoff is set for 6 p.m. tomorrow night. So let’s make sure we come out and show how much we love Wildcat Athletics and especially our Wildcats women’s soccer team. It’s playoffs after all, so you should have no excuse!
