Rebels Begin Second Half Of MWC Season|
Oct. 24, 2007
LAS VEGAS -
With the first half of the Mountain West regular season finished, the UNLV women's soccer teams has themselves in a great position to earn their second-ever regular season crown. UNLV is the only undefeated team in league play at 3-0-1 (8-3-5 overall), and is riding a three-game win streak, the last two both on the road in overtime (2-1 at New Mexico, 1-0 at TCU). The last part of the schedule also sets up well for the Rebels, as they play two of their last three games at home, beginning Friday night against Air Force in a 7 pm contest at Peter Johann Memorial Field. Following that will be the last road game of the year, at Wyoming on Sunday afternoon at 12 pm (PST).
Defense has carried the Rebels in league action, as after giving up two goals in the first 30 minutes of its MWC opener against Utah, the team has allowed just one goal over the last 368 minutes. That's not good news for the Falcons, who have gone six years without scoring a goal against UNLV, with the last tally coming in a 2001 contest.
UNLV's ability on offense to have several threats on the field has also been an advantage, as five different Rebels have scored the six goals in MWC play this year.
