Nevada faces Utah State Monday in MW Tournament
Nov. 2, 2013
RENO, Nev. -
"What I like about the post season is that it is a whole new season," head coach Dr. Melissa Price said. "We played Utah State earlier this year and got the win, but with the new season anything can happen the second time around, so we will be prepared. I like the match-up, Utah State is definitely a good team and it's going to be a fun game on Monday night. We played really well against UNLV last night, playing some of our best soccer in the double overtime match. To play well at the latter part of the season is what you are looking for as a coach. We will be going into the tournament with a bit of confidence, as we have been scoring goals and that will help us do well next week."
Nevada trails the overall series with Utah State 5-8. The Wolf Pack defeated the Aggies 2-0 in the team's home Mountain West opener during the regular season on Sep. 27. Alyissa deRonde and Kori Disarufino each scored a goal in the win. Utah State enters the post season coming off of a 1-1 double overtime tie at home to Boise State last Friday. Jennifer Flynn leads the team with nine points and four goals on the year.
