EUGENE, Ore. (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV women's soccer team turned in a tough defensive effort on Sunday afternoon but had to settle for a third straight 1-0 loss, as the Oregon Ducks used an early goal to claim the victory at Pape Field. UNLV dropped to 1-3 on the season, while Oregon remained undefeated at 3-0.
The lone score of the game came in the sixth minute, thanks to a shot from Julie Armstrong. Oregon held a 11-4 edge on shots for the afternoon, though only 5-3 on shots on goal. Credited with shots on goal for the Rebels were Macy Jo Harrison, Jenna Howerton and Elizabeth Billington, all with one each. UNLV also held a 3-1 edge on corner kicks.
Kylie Wassell finished with four saves in the goal for UNLV. Lindsay Parlee (one save) and Abby Steele (two saves) each played one half for OU to share the shutout.
UNLV will remain on the road this weekend as it goes up north to play in the Wolf Pack Invitational in Reno. The Rebels will face Detroit at 4 pm on Friday, and then will take on the host Nevada, Reno squad on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 2 pm.
