Luz Duarte scored her third goal in two games Wednesday night in FC Tucson's 2-0 win over FC Arizona.
The FC Tucson Women picked up their second win in as many games to start the 2021 season with both of their goals coming from their talented up-front duo.
Erin Craig scored in the first half and Luz Duarte added a second in the final 45 minutes of a 2-1 win over FC Arizona at Kino North Stadium on Wednesday night.
The FC Tucson Women are in first place in the WPSL Desert Conference with six points.
“It was a little ugly, but we got the job done,” FC Tucson Women coach Kelly Pierce said. “But a win is a win I have learned over the years.”
Craig’s goal came as a result of a bobble in the FC Arizona backline in the 17th minute. She pounced on the mistake and put the Women in Black ahead with her first goal of the season.
For Duarte, it was goal No. 3 of the year. After juggling the ball, the former Mexican national team player fired a rocket into the net in the 56th to make it 2-0. Duarte has now scored in the last three FC Tucson Women’s games, having netted in the first two matches of this season and scored in the final game of the 2019 season. The Women in Black’s 2020 season was canceled by the pandemic.
