TUCSON, Ariz---The #8 Arizona Western Matadors (4-2 overall, 3-1 ACCAC) had a lion's share of the opportunities, corners and possession but still fell 2-1 to the #1 team in Division II, the Pima Aztecs (4-0 overall, 4-0 ACCAC) Thursday night on the Matador Soccer Field.
Michele Signorelli's goal tapped home on a through ball in the 87th minute finally put the Matadors on the score column after a long night where a handful of shots glanced off of all parts of each post.
The Matadors held the early possession advantage, but Zak Mohamed headed a cross on a counter attack in the 25th minute to give Pima the 1-0 lead.
The Aztecs added the insurance goal 15 minutes later when Brian Vu found the top right corner from the left side of the box.
The Matadors had more chances, four of which banged off of posts, and corners, drawing 8 set pieces to Pima's one.
Arizona Western will be back in action Saturday hosting Scottsdale at 4:30pm on the Matador Soccer Field.
