Road Trip Awaits Rebels
Oct. 17, 2012
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -
The UNLV women's soccer team, looking to maintain its spot at second place in the Mountain West, has a challenge ahead this weekend with two road contests. First up is a Friday night game at in-state rival Nevada, Reno at 7 pm, and that's followed by a Sunday afternoon, 12 pm game at Boise State.
UNLV, tied along with Fresno State and New Mexico at 2-1-1 in league play, has a combined 10-1-1 record against its two opponents this weekend. The lone loss was a 3-0 setback at UNR on Sept. 30, 2007. Friday's game against the Wolf Pack is also part of the inaugural Governor's Series, an all-sports season-long competition between UNLV and Nevada, Reno. That game will have a webcast available at nevadawolfpack.com, while Sunday's game at Boise State will also be webcast (BroncoSports.com). Links for live stats for both games can be found at UNLVRebels.com.

That also marked the first time in five games that UNR scored a goal, and for the year the team is tied for last in the league with just 12 goals (UNLV has 27). Chrisalyn Fonte leads the team with 12 points, off five goals and two assists.
Scouting Boise State
The Broncos (7-8-1) have moved up to a tie for fifth place thanks to a two-game win streak involving 1-0 wins at Wyoming and Air Force. Boise State has also struggled on offense recently, with just five goals total in the last seven games, and just 18 for the season. Shannon Schueren is the team's leading scorer with 14 points (six goals, two assists).
