VIDEO: Tony Amato on tying Arizona’s all-time wins record, Houston Baptist, and more

Amato is one win away from becoming the winningest coach in Arizona soccer history

The Arizona Wildcats soccer team returns to the pitch Sunday when they host Houston Baptist (1-1) at 6 p.m. MST.

The Wildcats (1-1) are coming off a big win at UC Irvine thanks to a late goal by Jill Aguilera, who scored the game-winner in the 71st minute. It was Tony Amato’s 55th victory at Arizona, putting the sixth-year head coach in a tie for the school’s all-time wins record.
