A sixth-year senior, Aguilera said earlier this season that she’s not concerned about setting records.
“As Becca (Moros) would say, I don’t give a s—t,” Aguilera said. “Whoever scores, scores. Everything I do is for the team. And if I’m the one scoring, fine.”

Foster, a freshman, scored in the 13th minute off an assist from Jordan Hall to give the Wildcats a 2-0 lead.
