RENO, Nev. -
The University of Nevada soccer team (4-9-3, 2-5 MW) returns to Mackay Stadium for its final two-match home stand, hosting Wyoming (7-8-2, 4-2-1 MW) Friday night at 7 p.m., followed by Air Force (2-10-2, 1-4-1 MW) Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. for “Senior Day”.
Fans are encouraged to attend the game Friday night in costume. The Wolf Pack soccer team will pass out candy and sign autographs at the conclusion of the match. A ticket from the Nevada vs. UNLV football game on Saturday will allow fans free entrance into the Wolf Pack soccer match on Sunday against the Falcons.
“We head into the weekend still in a position to control our own destiny into the Mountain West Tournament,” head coach Dr. Melissa Price said. “We’ll continue to focus on controlling what we can by preparing to come out mentality focused and ready to play. The ultimate goal is putting ourselves in a position to be playing in the tournament in Albuquerque in two weeks.”
The overall series with Wyoming is even at 1-1. Nevada claimed a 1-0 win on the road last season during the previous meeting between the two programs. The Cowgirls come to town off of a 1-0 win over the Spartans last Sunday. Senior forward Lucie McDowell leads the team with eight goals this season.
The Wolf Pack leads the overall series with the Falcons 1-0, defeating Air Force 1-0 last season in Colorado Springs. Air Force enters the match with Nevada on a busy week, following having to make up a match that was postponed earlier this season. The Falcons played Fresno State and Utah State earlier this week in a pair of losses, and will face UNLV on the road Friday night before the match Sunday. Seven different Air Force players are tied for the team lead of one goal this season.
All home matches are available to watch online for free through the Mountain West Network via NevadaWolfPack.TV.
