Aug. 19, 2012
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -
The University of Nevada soccer team fell to the Sacramento State Hornets 2-1 on the road Sunday afternoon.
“We fought hard and made every effort to win the game,” head coach Dr. Melissa Price said. “In the end, we fell short by not defending well enough as a unit. We will rebound from this loss and move forward with confidence into next week”
Sacramento State kept Nevada’s defensive front busy early on with five shots on goal in the opening half. Wolf Pack senior goalkeeper Dana Moreno responded to the pressure, grabbing five saves to keep the Hornets scoreless. Nevada found opportunities as well with three shots on goal. The Pack just missed a chance to go ahead in the final minutes before halftime, as Kelly Gould’s shot on goal bounced off the post. The two team’s went into the intermission tied 0-0.
