Lady Matadors Drop Home Opener to Phoenix
|Arizona Western College||2|
YUMA, Ariz---Another shorthanded effort came up short as the Arizona Western Matadors (1-2 overall, 0-1 ACCAC) lost to a tough Phoenix College Bears (3-0 overall, 3-0 ACCAC) Saturday night on the Matador Soccer Field.
Phoenix struck for a pair of goals twenty minutes in, just two minutes apart, staking the 2-0 lead.
The physical contest saw six total yellow cards, four of which were against the Matadors.
The Matadors finally broke through late when Raheal Aka-Ety tapped home a deflection to get Arizona Western on the board.
Pau Fierro tapped in a penalty kick to pull within two.
But the late effort was not enough as the Matadors dropped their second straight decision.
Arizona Western will prepare for a road contest on Thursday at Pima in Tucson.
