Arizona traveled to Grand Canyon in a potentially conference-deciding match-up. Both teams were at 10 points with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses going into the afternoon and a victory for either side would have huge implications for the Conference Championship and post-season.
Arizona emerged victorious 2-3 garnering 53% of the possession over the 90 minutes and taking 15 total shots with 8 on target.
Forward Brian Molina had a standout performance scoring two goals and winning Arizona the game-winning penalty scored by midfielder Jeremy Siwik. Assists for Molina’s goals came from Bernardo Nieto and Lukas Barker. The game was Barker’s first start in over a month after recovering from recurring groin and ankle injuries.
