Utah Valley pinged the ball around the midfield before Amber Tripp sent a through ball into the box for a streaking Nicole Ray. The freshman sprinted onto it and slotted a left-footed shot inside the far post for the Wolverines’ first goal of the season.
It was the kind of possession-oriented attack Becca Moros hopes to implement at Arizona, but the Wildcats are clearly a work in progress under their new head coach. UA was blanked by Utah Valley 2-0 on Friday in Orem to open the 2021 season.
The Wildcats only mustered one shot all game, tying the fewest in program history.
