Nevada Makes Final Road Trip of Regular Season
RENO, Nev. -- The University of Nevada women's soccer team (6-8-2, 1-4 WAC) will be on the road for two matches this weekend, meeting San Jose State (8-6-1, 2-2-1 WAC) Friday at 7 p.m. and Fresno State (5-8-2, 1-3 WAC) Sunday at 1 p.m.
"We're all fighting for a spot in the WAC Championships, so I expect these games to be hard fought and competitive," head coach Dr. Melissa Price said.
Nevada is coming off two home defeats last weekend, both by one goal. In its most recent contest, the Pack hit three crossbars en route to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Boise State.
Hoping to rebound from their recent defeats, Nevada will look to play their way into the season ending WAC Championships in Rustin, La. November 4-7. Strong play to close out the season will help the Pack's chances of playing after their season finale at home against Hawai'i October 29. The match with the Rainbow Wahine will be senior night inside Mackay Stadium.
"I expect that the teams we play in our final games will all be doing anything they can to win," Price said. "I like our odds."
San Jose State is coming off a 2-1 victory over New Mexico State October 17. The win over the Aggies, who are 1-5 in the WAC this season, helped to keep SJSU's post-season hopes alive. The Spartans are 8-3-1 all time against Nevada, but the Pack owns the most recent win in the series, a 2-1 victory in 2009.
Fresno State is also coming off a victory in its last contest, a 2-0 victory over Louisiana Tech October 17, in Rustin, La. The bulldogs are 11-1-1 all time against the Pack.
