Women's club soccer loses in semis

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Last week, the Arizona women's club soccer team co-captain Stacy Morris said the team was capable of at least a decent showing in the National Collegiate Soccer Association tournament, played last weekend at Phoenix's Cave Creek Sports Complex. The Wildcats did more than a decent showing they came within a shootout of reaching the finals, losing to eventual champion Western Michigan.

The team entered the tournament seeded seventh out of eight teams. The Wildcats qualified on the strength of their second-place finish in the southwest regional, losing to Texas-El Paso in the final of their region.

Arizona went 2-0-1 in round-robin play, beating Colorado State 3-1 and Texas A&M 1-0 while playing Utah State to a 0-0 tie.

In the semifinals, Arizona was tied with Western Michigan 1-1 at the end of regulation. In the shootout, despite the goalkeeping of Marie Schutte, the Wildcats bowed to the pressure and lost. The team finished the year 11-3-1.
