Soccer: Team lacks offensive punch in Sunday match

The soccer team got a full dose of Big 12 and Pac 10 competition at home this weekend and was able to split the two weekend matches.After pulling out a 2-1 victory against in-state rival Texas Tech on Friday, Arizona State came to Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium and secured a 2-0 shutout Sunday – the first game in which goalkeeper Kelsey Walters has allowed more than one goal.

Walters, a freshman, allowed just her second goal in more than 300 minutes in front of the net against Texas Tech and gave up another two goals Sunday to the Sun Devils.

Sophomore midfielder Michelle Nguyen and freshman forward Jackie Torda ignited the Horned Frogs’ offense against the Red Raiders, earning their second and third goals of the season, respectively.

Sunday’s game was much the opposite with the team manufacturing seven total shots compared to Arizona State’s 25-shot total.
