Arizona’s Susana Melendez slides past Oregon State’s Erin Uchacz during a soccer match in Corvallis, Oregon.

This weekend, Oregon State hosts its first sporting events of the season, as the football team and both soccer teams play in Corvallis. I don’t have many chances to shoot sports, and close access can be restricted to official media at many college events. But I’ve gone behind the goal line to take pictures at a few soccer matches, and nobody has stopped me, so I’ll probably try to do so again this year. This image is from a couple years ago, when an Arizona player with a prominent ponytail slid passed the ball and turned back to find it.
