The Sun Devils are still trying to navigate their path without current NCAA career goal leader Johnny Walker, who was injured after a knee-to-knee collision at the end of last season.
The Sun Devils have struggled scoring throughout the season and their offensive struggles were evident in their 2-0 shutout loss last game. The Sun Devils face the challenge of scoring against the Badgers’ goalkeeper Robbie Beydoun, who is looking to be the first Badgers goalie since 2015 to finish with a save percentage above 0.900, with a 0.931 save percentage and 2.47 goals-against average.
The most interesting matchup of the weekend comes in the form of Arizona State’s goalkeepers versus Wisconsin’s attack. Cole Caufield and the Badgers offense exploded last weekend, recording the previously mentioned 16 goals, and are up against the two ASU goalkeepers, freshman Cole Brady and junior Evan DeBrouwer.
