Rebels, Vikings Play To Scoreless Tie
Oct. 5, 2007
LAS VEGAS - Despite a commanding advantage on shots during the game, the UNLV women's soccer team (4-3-4) again couldn't find the back of the net, settling for its third double-overtime scoreless tie in its last four outings, this time against Portland State (4-6-1) on Friday night from Peter Johann Field.
Though the Rebels moved to 3-0-2 on their home field and have given up just one goal at home all season, they did not convert on any of their 21 shots for the game. PSU goalkeeper Cris Lewis finished with 11 saves in the net, and made a leaping save of a shot by Rebel forward Katie Carney in the final moments of the second overtime to preserve the tie. Erica Jensen also had a chance at breaking the tie in second overtime when she let off a shot that hit the crossbar, then headed the rebound but saw the ball go wide.
Alicia Lugo finished with two saves in goal for the Rebels, who held the Vikings to just four shots for the game. UNLV also held an 11-1 edge on corner kicks.
UNLV will play its final non-conference game of the regular season on Sunday, against Utah Valley State at 11 am at Peter Johann Field.
