Soccer: Nevada Closes Out the Regular Season at Boise State


image001-1569037-9127522The University of Nevada soccer team (6-8-3, 2-2-2 MW) will close out the 2012 regular season on the road with a match at Boise State (8-8-2, 3-2-1 MW) Saturday afternoon at the Boas Soccer Complex. The Broncos lead the overall series 10-1-1, defeating the Pack 2-1 in overtime during the 2010 season in Reno. Boise State is led by sophomore Shannon Schueren with six goals.

The Wolf Pack qualified for the 2012 Mountain West Women’s Soccer Tournament, with a 0-0 tie against Fresno State last Sunday afternoon. The match at Boise State will help decide seeding heading into next week’s Mountain West Tournament in San Diego, Calif.

“The team fought hard to secure our spot in the Mountain West tournament,” head coach Dr. Melissa Price said. “Our next goal is to play for the highest seed that we can. In our final regular season match we will look to build upon the ideas and concepts we have been layering in at practice. Execution and playing with confidence will be key.”
