Rich leads Nevada soccer to first conference win

Rich leads Nevada soccer to first conference win (Nevada athletics)

After losing their first matchup in Colorado to the Colorado College Tigers, the Wolf Pack would get their first conference win against the Air Force Falcons with some help from one of their top freshmen.

The first half was defensive heavy, with no goals scored in the first 45 minutes. Both goalies had one save each for their respective teams. The Falcons would lead the half in shots with eight compared to the Pack’s six. The fouls would be close between both teams, as the Falcons lead with five and the Pack were just behind with four.

The next half would see the Pack takeover offensively. Emily Rich shined in the second half with two goals, which both were firsts of the season for the freshman. Her first goal came within the first two minutes of the half. This goal would be assisted by junior Kendall Riley and be Rich’s first collegiate goal.

Rich would score again with 10 minutes left in the half. This goal would be assisted by sophomore Lauren Muff and be Rich’s second goal of her career. The Falcons were able to get more shots off against the Pack in the second half with a shot total of 11, but the Falcons would end the half empty handed.

The game would end with the Pack on top with a score of 2-0. Rich and junior Gabby Brown would lead the team in shots with three, with freshman Trinity Sandridge right behind them with two shots. Senior Kendal Stovall would finish the game with three saves and no goals given up throughout the match.

The Nevada soccer team will look to keep this momentum and travel back home to compete in two more conference matchups over the next weekend.
