UNLV Weekly Release

All About The Rebels
UNLV has earned results on the field despite the long road trip, as its 5-3-2 mark tied Boise State for the best non-conference record. That’s been helped by the top-rated offense in the league, with the Rebels ranking first in points, goals and assists.


 

 

Leading the Rebels this season is senior forward Jenn Wolfe, with four goals and three assists for a league-best 11 points. Sophomore midfielder Susie Bernal is at the top of the MW in assists, while senior goalkeeper Kylie Wassell continues her outstanding career in the goal, and has posted four shutouts this season.

The Rebels are 4-0-1 all-time against the Broncos, with the tie coming in last year’s meeting in Boise. UNLV is 5-1 in the series with Utah State, with the lone loss coming in the 1999 season. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since 2005, a 2-1 UNLV win in Logan on Sept. 2.

Scouting Boise State
The Broncos recently had a six-game unbeaten streak snapped with a loss at No. 13 Baylor, but prior to that game BSU had recorded wins over Arizona State and Washington as well as a tie against Washington State. Boise State is 4-3 in the road this year, and this will be the team’s fifth straight away from its home field. Leading the team this season is sophomore Brooke Heidemann with 11 points and a MW-high five goals. Ashley Hruby is next on the team with five points (one goal, three assists), and a pair of players have two goals each. In goal is Maddy Mcdevitt, who had a league-high five shutouts and a 0.74 GAA.

Scouting Utah State
The Aggies started out the season 4-0-1 record, but have lost three of their last four games. In fact, Utah State has gone three straight games without a goal, after losing 3-2 in overtime to No. 25 Arkansas on Sept. 13 in Logan. Taryn Rose is the team’s top scorer, with six points to rank ninth in the Mountain West, while her three goals ties her for sixth. Kylie Dibbs and Lauren Roundy each have two goals as well for the Aggies. Jeannie Woller currently ranks first in the MW in saves with 49, and has a 1.16 GAA with four shutouts this season.

Next Time Out
The Rebels will be on the road for a pair of conference games in the state of California. First up will be a Friday, Oct. 4 contest at San Jose State at 7 pm, followed by a Sunday, Oct. 6 game at Fresno State at 1 pm. Both games will be shown on the Mountain West Network, available at UNLVRebels.com.
