After a sparking prep career at Service, Anchorage’s Yvonne Desjarlais is looking to enjoy the same success at the University of Arkansas.

And she’s already on her way.

Desjarlais, a freshman forward, notched an assist on her team’s only goal in a 1-1 draw with Saint Louis in the final tune-up match before the NCAA season kicks off this weekend.

The Razorbacks get started for real Sunday morning against Florida International.

Don’t be surprised if Desjarlais finds her way on the score sheet.

At Service, she notched 150 career points (No. 2 all-time) and bagged 19 goals in 2009.

Arkansas also features Callie Authier of Anchorage, another former Service star.
