The Arizona soccer team will be without leading goal scorer Renae Cuellar and starting goalkeeper Devon Wharf on Friday when they take on Loyola Marymount University at Mulcahy Stadium.


Cuellar injured her right foot on Friday in a 2-1 win against Santa Barbara and continued to play with the injury in a 3-0 loss against Cal Poly on Sunday. The specifics of the injury were not disclosed but Cuellar will have a MRI on Thursday that should give a definite timetable of how much time she may miss. Cuellar watched practice on Wednesday with crutches and a boot.


Wharf also will miss Friday's game with a sprained knee and sophomore goalkeeper Ashley Jett will fill as the starting goalkeeper.


Arizona head coach Dan Tobias was unsure when either player would play again but said they will not play on Friday and their status after that is day to day.


""I'm sad for the both of them because their good people and good players,"" he said. ""We have a good medical staff and well get those guys back as soon as we can.""
