LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -
@UNLVRebelSoccer | UNLV Weekly Release
Saturday marks the end of the regular season for UNLV men's soccer, and the Rebels are ready for a tough challenge at Grand Canyon in a 7 pm contest.
The Antelopes, who are 6-1-1 on their home field this season, are not only hosting their Senior Night, they are also playing for their playoff lives, making it a do-or-die for the home team. GCU is currently in a three-way tie for fourth place in the league, but with two more teams just two points back, a loss could have the Lopes out of next week’s seven-team conference tournament.
UNLV meanwhile has clinched at least a top-three finish in the WAC standings. The Rebels are currently tied with Seattle with 18 points, and hold the tiebreaker over the Redhawks as well. The Rebels’ main goal will be to keep the momentum going after their win over No. 22 Seattle on their Senior Day Oct. 29 in Las Vegas. Following Saturday’s contest, the matchups will be announced for the WAC Tournament, hosted by UNLV on Nov. 8-12.
Saturday’s game will be broadcast live by the YurView channel, available in Las Vegas on Cox Cable channel 96/1096. It will also be available on ESPN3 and through YouTube as well.
