Arizona Upsets No.11 Cal in Berkeley
Arizona defender Brandi Park prepares to kick the ball on Sept. 23 on Murphey Field at Mulcahy Soccer Stadium.
Coming off another tough loss against No. 2 Stanford in Palo Alto, Arizona soccer found a way to beat No.11 California off of freshman Jada Talley’s 74’ goal on Sunday.
The Wildcats were on a three-game win streak heading into their road trip against the two Northern California teams. Arizona’s goalkeeper Lainey Burdett was credited for 11 saves on Thursday against No. 2 Stanford. Unfortunately, Stanford’s Jordan DiBiasi got one behind Burdett in the 66’ giving the Cardinal a 1-0 victory. Arizona rebounded Sunday afternoon beating No. 11 Cal when Talley scored her first goal of the season.
Arizona will host the defending national champions on Thursday, Oct. 5 when they welcome Southern California at 7 p.m. MST.
