Rebels Hoping For Record Crowd On Senior Day
Oct. 30, 2013
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -
The UNLV women's soccer team closes out the regular season by hosting in-state rival Nevada, Reno on Friday afternoon at 5 pm at Peter Johann Field. The Rebels are hoping to break the record attendance for the game, and all fans wearing red to the game will get in for half price at $4, while children 12 and under are always free.
Friday is also Senior Day at UNLV. Three seniors will play their final home game of their career, forward Jenn Wolfe, midfielder Courtney Botelho and goalkeeper Kylie Wassell, while redshirt junior Kelli McCracken will also be honored before the game. The game is part of the Governor’s Series as well, which is sponsored by NV Energy. Both teams have already locked up spots in next week’s MW Tournament, though the Rebels are currently seventh, and have a shot at finishing as high as sixth if they come away with the win.
Friday's game will have live stats available on Gametracker as well as a webcast on the Mountain West Network (thanks to the student produced UNLV-TV), all available on UNLVRebels.com.
