Unbeaten Streak Now At Four
Sept. 23, 2007
LAS VEGAS - Despite holding Iowa State to just one shot on goal, the UNLV women's soccer team was forced to settle for a 0-0 double-overtime tie on Sunday afternoon in the UNLV Rebel Classic, held at Peter Johann Memorial Field. The tie pushed the Rebels' unbeaten streak to four games, giving them a 4-2-2 mark on the season, while ISU moved to 4-1-2. In the day's other game, Washington State topped Nevada, Reno 1-0.
The Rebels had two near misses on scoring opportunities during the game. Near the end of the first half, Niki Connolly came into the box unmarked with the goalie out of position, but just missed getting her foot on a crossing pass. UNLV also looked to have scored the winning goal midway through the second overtime on a shot by Kristen Shim, but the goal was disallowed due to an offsides call.
UNLV finished the game with a 13-9 edge on shots. Rebel goalkeeper Alicia Lugo posted one save to earn her second straight shutout, and fourth of the season. Ann Gleason meanwhile was forced to make seven saves in the Cyclones' goal to maintain the scoreless outcome.
The Rebels will return to action this weekend, as they face Pacific on Stockton, Calif., on Friday night at 7 pm, before meeting in-state rival Nevada, Reno on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 1 pm in Reno.
