Nevada soccer earns a tie against top team in the MW (Nevada athletics)

The Nevada Wolf Pack soccer team entered this game with some momentum after earning their first conference win. Momentum that would help them earn a 1-1 tie against the top Mountain West team, the New Mexico Lobos

The game started off with a goal by the Lobos’ Zaria Katesigwa. The goal by the freshman came within the first 16 minutes of play time. This goal would be Katesiwa’s seventh of the season. Nevada had a slow offensive first half, only getting one shot off. Senior Kendal Stovall, who is now second all-time at Nevada with saves, had two that half.

The next half would see the Pack answer back. Freshman Emily Rich, who scored two goals in the Pack’s win against the Air Force Falcons, would tie the game with her third goal of the season. This goal would be assisted by junior Luz Arreaga. The Pack would improve their shots taken this half to six, while Stovall increased her saves this half to four.

Nothing would happen in overtime, as neither team was able to drive in the winning goal. Both teams had three shots total in the two overtime periods, while Stovall was able to add another save to her season total.

The Pack in this game saw Arreaga and junior Gabby Brown lead the team in shots with three each. Freshman Trinity Sandridge was just behind them with two. Stovall would end the match giving up only one goal and earning seven saves. This is the first time the Pack has tied or beaten the Lobos since 2006.

The next matchup for the Pack will be another home match against the San Diego State Aztecs on Sunday at 1:00 P.M.
