Soccer match at Moana Sports Complex a win-win for Wolf Pack and the community

The University of Nevada soccer team partnered with the Great Basin Youth Soccer League and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada this past weekend to host a match at the Moana Springs Sports Complex. A program record 1,050 fans came out to watch the Wolf Pack capture a 3-2 win over Sacramento State Sunday afternoon, giving Nevada its second win of the season.

Fans were encouraged to bring canned goods to support the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and they were generous in their donations, as the group collected 1,162 pounds of food. That is a value of $1,963.78.

Local food trucks and the Reno Host Lions Club were busy selling food to the fans in attendance. The Lions Club were on hand grilling hamburgers and polish dogs, selling over $700 that will go towards an effort to provide glasses for school kids in northern Nevada.

The Nevada men's soccer club team assisted with the event and received a donation of $700 from the GBYSL.

It was a great event to showcase how the northern Nevada area is truly a "One Community One Pack".
