Golden Gonzalez Lifts Rebels Past UIW 1-0
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (UNLVRebels.com) – Junior forward Marco Gonzalez scored the golden goal in the 94th minute to give UNLV 1 -0 road victory at Incarnate Word Sunday afternoon in WAC men’s soccer action. With the win, the Rebels pushed their unbeaten streak to three games and now stand at 2-3-1, and are seventh in the standings with seven points.
UIW actually had a 17-7 edge on total shots in the game, but only four of those 17 were on goal, while three of the Rebels’ seven came on frame. The winning score was setup thanks to steal in the midfield by the Rebels, who then served up a long pass to the left side to Gonzalez. The Las Vegas native made a move past his defender into the box and curved a shot to the right post for the score to end the game.
NEXT UP: The Rebels are back home for their final two home games, starting with a home double-header with the UNLV women’s team Friday. The Rebels will host Seattle at 5 pm, while the UNLV women will play Wyoming at 7:30 pm. There will be a free tailgate with free food and drinks available for all with ticketed admission to the games.
