LAS VEGAS - The UNLV men's soccer team looks to break a seven-game losing streak as they host San Jose State and Sacramento State this weekend at Peter Johann Memorial Field. The Rebels will meet SJSU on Friday at 7 pm, followed by a Sunday afternoon matchup with Sac State at Noon.
The Rebels will be looking to regain their touch on offense, as they have scored just once in the last five games after notching six goals in the first four games of the season. UNLV will also be glad to be at home, after playing six of its last seven games away from Las Vegas. The Rebels are led this season by Rod Dyachenko and Lamar Neagle, both with three goals. In the net is senior Peter Clitheroe, who holds a 2.38 GAA with 47 saves.
San Jose State is 5-3-2 overall, and 1-0 after a win against Sacramento State on Oct. 9. The Spartans are paced on offense by Nelson Diaz (four goals, one assist, nine points). In goal is Richard Mann, who holds a 0.84 GAA with 25 saves.
Sacramento State is 5-3-1, but have won just one of its last four games, a 2-0 victory over UC Davis on Oct. 2. The Hornets have two players both with three goals and two assists for a team-high eight points, Ryan Rhoads and Oscar Sandoval. Matt McDougall has seen the majority of time in goal, and has a 1.34 GAA with 40 saves.
