Musovski Named Outstanding Rebel Of The Week|
Sept. 27, 2017
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV men's soccer senior Danny Musovski has been named the Outstanding Rebel of the Week presented by Air Force Reserve, the school announced Wednesday.
The award goes to the student-athlete who turned in the best individual performance during the previous week of competition from Monday through Sunday as voted on by the UNLV Athletic Communications department.
Musovski, a local product out of Henderson, turned in a record four-goal, nine-point performance on Sunday in a 5-1 win against Oral Roberts. The senior recorded the program's first hat trick since former Rebel Sal Bernal scored three at Bradley on Aug. 31, 2014, while the four goals were the most since Doug Borgel had four against UC Irvine on Oct. 20, 1989. The Las Vegas-area native added an assist on the team's fifth and final goal of the day, giving him a program-record tying nine points, matching Borgel from the same UC Irvine contest. The four goals and nine points tied and set Western Athletic Conference records, respectively, while both marks were the best single-game performances in the NCAA this season thus far. After the record-breaking day, Musovski earned his fourth career WAC Player of the Week award, the most by a single player in Rebel soccer history, and was named United Soccer Coaches' National Player of the Week for the second time in his career.
In Musovski's four full games that he has played in, the Rebels have scored a total of eight goals, and he either scored or assisted on seven of those eight goals. The scoring outbust on Sunday has the senior moving up the career scoring lists, as he now ranks fifth at UNLV with 93 points and sixth in carer goals with 37, which also ties him atop the WAC career scoring chart.
The Rebels open WAC play on Thursday against Houston Baptist in their lone game of the weekend. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Peter Johann Memorial Field. The first 100 fans will also receive a free UNLV beanie, while the first 150 UNLV students (with a UNLV student ID) will receive a free BBQ sandwich from Smoke'n Sams BBQ at the concession stand. The UNLV Soccer Foundation will hold a free tailgate party before the game, with free food, drinks and music. Admission is free to all ticketed fans.
Single-game ticket prices this season are $8 for adults, $6 for faculty/staff and seniors, or a special internet price of $5 is available for all tickets bought online at UNLVTickets.com, good up to three hours before game time. Kids 12 and under are always free at UNLV men's soccer contests.
