JONESBORO, Ark. (8/19/2012) —The Arkansas State soccer team opened its 2012 home schedule with a 6-0 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff at the ASU Soccer Complex on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Wolves took 28 shots during the game, which is tied for the third most in a single match in ASU history. They also added 16 shots on goal and were award six corner kicks.

“I was very pleased with our ability to bounce back,” ASU Soccer coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge said. “With such a young group when have a disappointment like we did on Friday and to be able to come back 48 hours later and put on the kind of performance we did today is pleasing.”
