TEMPE, Ariz. - The University of Utah women's soccer team (8-7-2, 3-6-0 Pac-12) surrendered a season-high four goals on the road in a 4-1 loss at Arizona State (8-8-2, 4-4-1 Pac-12) Thursday. Utah's only goal came from freshman midfielder Kaycee Buckley (Thousand Oaks, Calif.) who converted the first penalty kick of her career.
Arizona took a 1-0 lead early on as Devin Marshall scored on a volley from the top of the penalty box in the eighth minute of play. Courtney Tinnin got the assist as she put Marshall in position to score with a perfectly weighted pass off the outside of her foot. The ball flicked up in the air off a Utah defender's leg but Marshall was still able to strike a solid volley past Ute goalkeeper Lindsey Luke (Corona del Mar, Calif.).
Holland Crook gave the Sun Devils a 2-0 lead and scored the eventual game-winning goal as she made the Utes pay for a foul in the box by converting a penalty kick opportunity in the 59th minute.
Utah cut the lead to 2-1 in the 67th minute with Buckley's penalty after ASU was whistled for a handball in the box. Arizona State goalkeeper Chandler Morris guessed correctly but Buckley's shot was too well-placed as she buried it into the bottom left corner for her second goal of the season.
Tommi Goodman gave the Sun Devils a 3-1 advantage at the 74:36 mark as she lofted a volley over the head of Luke and into the back of the net. ASU launched a free kick into the box where it was headed away by the Ute defense. The ensuing loose ball fell in front of Goodman, who one-timed it home for her second goal of the year.
ASU made it 4-1 as Marshall picked up her second goal of the game in the 82nd minute. Sierra Joseph knocked a free kick into the box as Marshall streaked past the Utah defense and got just enough of her head on the ball to redirect it past Luke and into the goal.
Arizona State out-shot the Utes 15-11, putting 11 shots on goal to Utah's six. Luke finished the game with seven saves while Morris recorded five stops. Utah held the advantage in corner kicks, 6-2, while fouls went 15-13 against the Utes.
