Rebels Keep Rolling
Sept. 16, 2012
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (UNLVRebels.com) - Junior Jenn Wolfe scored her ninth goal of the season to help lead UNLV to a school-record tying sixth straight win, 2-1 over Florida Gulf Coast on Sunday morning in college women's soccer action from Lumberjack Stadium on the Northern Arizona campus. Playing on the second day of the High Altitude Tournament, the Rebels improved their record to 7-2-1 on the year, while the Eagles fell to 5-2-2 for the season. The last time the Rebels posted six straight wins was during the 2005 season.
The game's first score came from Denali Murnan in the 19th minute, following a free kick from Harrison. Her shot hit the post and bounced back to Murnan, who put it back into the goal for the score and a 1-0 lead. UNLV would take that 1-0 advantage into halftime, while holding a 9-2 edge on shots over the first stanza.
Wolfe, who entered the tournament ranked in the top seven in the nation in both goals and game-winners, posted her second of the weekend of each after scoring the Rebels' second goal of the day. This time Wolfe dribbled the ball into the box and slotted a shot to the lower right corner for the goal in the 62nd minute to put the Rebels up 2-0. FGCU broke up the shutout when Kaitlin Parker scored in the 79th minute to make it a 2-1 edge, but that was one of only two shots in the second half from the Eagles, while UNLV goalie Kylie Wassell stopped the other shot to preserve the win.
UNLV limited the Eagles to only four shots total in the game (17-4 edge), and shots on goal were 10-2 in favor of the Rebels. Each team took one corner kick.
The Rebels return to action on Sunday, Sept. 22 with their final non-conference game of the season, an 11:30 contest against Idaho at Peter Johann Memorial Field.
