No player on the Arizona soccer team has ever lost to the Arizona State Sun Devils.

It serves as a source of pride for the Wildcats, who continued their ownage of their in-state rivals Saturday when they outlasted ASU 5-3 in Tempe.

The Wildcats have not lost to ASU since 2015. They have beaten the Sun Devils three straight times in the regular season and two straight times in the spring, with Saturday’s win being the latest instance.

Sophomore forward Jada Talley scored two goals. Freshman Iyana Zimmerman and juniors Leah Carillo and Brynn Moga scored one.

Freshman goalkeeper Kendyll Humphreys made her first-ever appearance in net after missing last week’s spring opener with a broken finger. She is replacing four-year starter Lainey Burdett, who completed her career in the fall and now plays for the NWSL’s Orlando Pride.

Below is video of one of Talley’s goals. It knotted the game at 1-1 in the early goings. The Wildcats never trailed again, though ASU tied it at 2-2 then 3-3.

I spoke to some UA players at practice Friday about the rivalry and some other things. Here is what they had to say.
