UNLV MEN'S SOCCER

Senior Danny Musovski notched his WAC-leading 10th goal of the year to give UNLV men's soccer its fifth straight home victory, 1-0 on Sunday afternoon over Incarnate Word from Peter Johann Memorial Field. The win jumped the Rebels into second place in the conference standings with 12 points (4-1), just two points behind first place Seattle (4-0-2), while they moved to .500 (7-7) for the first time this season since a split on the opening weekend

THE TURNING POINT: UNLV had been knocking on the door all afternoon long, but kept coming up short until the 71st minute. The Rebels stole the ball near their goal, and moved it up to midfield to Kevin Partida. He saw a streaking Musovski near the front and soared a long pass over the backline. Musovski outran the last defender to the ball, and from just inside the box sent a low hard shot cross cage to the right post, just past the reach of the leaping UIW goalkeeper.



REBEL OF THE GAME: Musovski notched his third-game winner of the season with the score, and has posted at least one point in five of the last six contests.

STAT OF THE GAME: The Cardinals were held to just three total shots in the game, two coming in a five-second span.

QUOTABLE:
"To get six points this weekend was very necessary for us to secure a good position for the postseason WAC tournament. We had to grind it out a bit today, we had great chances, and we were able to finish off a opportunity as Danny just had a outstanding game today. It was a great individual effort by Danny, with the hard angle to beat the goalie to the post, a first-class goal by him."
- UNLV Head Coach Rich Ryerson

REBEL NOTES:
* UNLV is on a five-game home win streak, its longest since a seven-game streak that spanned the end of the 2013 season and the first four games of the 2014 campaign.
* Sophomore Enrique Adame claimed his second shutout of the season in the win, after facing nine shots and posting three saves. It's the fifth shutout of his career as well.

NEXT FOR THE REBELS: The Rebels will be on the road for a pair of games, beginning with a Friday night contest at No. 12 Air Force. That game will kick off at 5 pm (PT) in Colorado Springs, Colorado. UNLV will end the weekend in Kansas City against UMKC at 11 am (PST).
