Arizona Men’s Soccer traveled to Northern Arizona University for a 6PM kickoff in light drizzle and 50-degree weather.
Arizona held 64% of the possession to NAU’s 36% throughout the 90 minutes along with 18 shots (7 on target) to Northern Arizona’s 8 (4 on target). The first half saw a headed goal from Brian Molina (Bernie Nieto). NAU scored an own goal off a Karai Keil long throw in the 55th minute for a 2-0 lead. However, a 65th minute shot into the bottom left corner saw them back into the contest. An equalizer then came 10 minutes later. A driven shot on the 18 yard-line met several deflections before ricocheting of goalkeeper Chase Van Bibber’s glove and into the net.
Van Bibber had 2 saves on the night.
A traditionally scrappy affair, Arizona walked away with two yellow cards while NAU finished with 7, along with a red card for undisciplined tackling.
