SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Senior midfielder Veronica Ambort's fourth goal of the season in the 25th minute lifted the University of San Diego women's soccer team to a 1-0 shutout win over the visiting Arizona State University Sun Devils Sunday afternoon in a non-conference match at Torero Stadium.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 7-3-0 overall and avoid their first losing streak of the season. With the loss, the Sun Devils fall to 4-3-2 on the season.
The Toreros took control of the tempo early on in the match as they put the offensive pressure on the ASU defense from the get go, and in the 25th minute of the match, USD tallied the lone goal of the match. Freshman midfielder Hallie Huston found herself deep in the Sun Devils goal box just next to the right post. Huston threaded a pass to Ambort who was there to put the ball into the back of the net for her team-leading fourth goal of the season.
Brittany Cameron picked up her second shutout of the season recording four saves in the process. Her counterpart, Kim Bingham, was saddled with the loss for Arizona State as she allowed one goal and recorded one save.
The Toreros and Sun Devils were even in shot attempts at nine apiece and USD held a territorial advantage in corner kicks at 10-4.
The Toreros will return to the pitch on Friday as they head to Los Angeles to play their third PAC-10 opponent in as many matches as they take on the Bruins of UCLA in a 6 p.m. non-conference match.
