LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -
The UNLV women's soccer team (6-3) is ready for one last weekend of non-conference action before beginning Mountain West Conference play, as the Rebels will take on a pair of opponents in the Air Force Invitational this Friday and Sunday in Colorado Springs. First up will be a contest against VMI of the Big South Conference at 3 pm (PT) , and that will be followed by a Sunday game against Weber State at 12 pm (PT).
Following a pair of tight 2-1 contests this past weekend, in which UNLV saw Long Beach State rally for a 2-1 overtime win on Friday night before the Rebels bounced back to drop UC Davis 2-1 on Sunday, the Rebels will be facing a pair of teams that have not had quite the same success in 2010. VMI is 1-7 thus far this season, and have scored just two goals, while Weber State is looking for its first victory of the year.
The Rebels are hoping to reach eight wins with a pair of victories this weekend. which would be the second time UNLV has reached that mark by the end of September.
In goal for UNLV is freshman keeper Kylie Wassell, who has a 1.17 GAA, 38 saves and one shutout on the year.
The two scores this year have come from junior midfielder Amanda Berrios and junior midfielder Sarah Strand. In goal is senior Heidi Beemer, who has started three games and is posting a 1.60 GAA with 27 saves in 3:36.48 minutes of action.
Leading the team this year is freshman forward Felicia Sortor with six points (2 goals, 2 assists), while Ari Wood has two goals and an assist for five points. Alyson Hanson has taken over the starting role in the net, and has a 2.64 GAA with 15 saves in four games of action.
