Nevada Bested by Fresno State
Oct. 28, 2011
RENO, Nev. – The University of Nevada women’s soccer team fell to Fresno State by a score of 2-1 Friday night at Mackay Stadium.
The loss dropped Nevada to 3-15 (1-5 WAC), while Fresno State improved to 10-4-4 (5-1-1 WAC).
Ellie Stott opened the scoring in the game, heading a ball from Danielle Green into the back of the net in the 55th minute. It was her third goal of the season. Green’s assist came when she threw the ball in from 25 yards and Stott got onto the other end of it for the game’s first tally.
Fresno State scored in the 69th and 73rd minutes to take the advantage back from the Wolf Pack. The goals came from Morgan Castain and Laura Dodd, respectively.
Starting her 78th match as a member of the Pack, Annabelle Allen passed Samantha Miller (2005-08) for the most all time. Allen will increase that lead by one if she takes the field with the first unit Sunday against San Jose State.
Referee Albert Montalvo whistled the Pack for five fouls and Fresno State for two. Nevada had the advantage in shots, taking seven to Fresno State’s six.
With New Mexico State’s 1-0 victory over Hawai’i Friday night in Las Cruces, Nevada was eliminated from WAC Tournament contention.
Sunday’s contest with the Spartans will start at 2 p.m., with Nevada honoring its five outgoing seniors in a ceremony before the match. In addition, any fan bring a noise maker will get into the match for free.
