YUMA, Ariz--- The #19 Arizona Western Matadors (7-3 overall, 2-2 ACCAC) experienced a huge upset on Saturday night after two late goals by the Chandler-Gilbert Coyotes (2-6 overall, 1-3 ACCAC) brought the final score to 1-2.

The Lady Mats held the game in the first half as they were up 1-0 with Jaeda Centeno scoring the first goal of the night about 32 minutes in.

With a little over 14 minutes left in the second half, Kaitlyn Aeppli of Chandler-Gilbert tied the match 1-1. Then, with only about three minutes until the final whistle, Aeppli went on to score again.

AWC had a total of 10 shots on goal, four corner kicks, and four fouls for the night.

This was the first match-up of the season between these two teams as their first game was canceled due to COVID concerns on the part of the Chandler-Gilbert team.

The Arizona Western Matadors will now be hitting the road to take on the Mesa Thunderbirds at John D. Riggs Stadium on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
