Sept. 8, 2004
LAS VEGAS -
The UNLV FILA Invitational kicks off this Friday as the Rebel men's soccer squad faces No. 18 Washington at 7 pm at Peter Johann Field. The Rebel-Huskie contest will follow the 4:30 pm game where Creighton takes on UCLA.
UNLV (1-1-0) is coming off a 1-0 win on Monday over Navy but will need a solid performance to match the 2003 NCAA top 16 team. The Huskies return twelve letterwinners, including eight starters from last season's team. Washington (2-1-0) is coming off a 1-0 loss last weekend against No. 2 St. John's.
The Rebels will play UCLA (2-0-0) Sunday at noon. Currently ranked sixth in the NSCAA poll, the Bruins will be another tough bout for UNLV. Competition for the UNLV FILA Invitational closes with a No. 13 Creighton (2-0-0) vs. Washington face-off at 2:30 pm.
Two for the price of one tickets can be purchased for Friday night's competition. Rebel autographs will be available after the 7 pm game. Tickets are just one dollar for the Rebel-Bruin match up on Sunday.
