Rebels End Season With Late Game Heroics
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – Though it didn’t show on the scoreboard, UNLV completely dominated Southern Utah Sunday afternoon in the Rebels’ 1-0 victory in women’s college soccer action from Johann Memorial Field. The Rebels closed out the regular season with back-to-back shutout victories to end the season on a winning note.
UNLV finished the game with a commanding 37-2 advantage on shots, and 20-1 on shots on goal. The Rebels also held ball possession for over 70% of the contest, but despite all the chances, could not convert a shot until the final minutes after earning a corner kick, one of 13 on the day. Katie Ballou sent her corner kick into the middle of the box where Jadyn Nogues leaped up and headed the ball into the back of the net for the score in the 86th minute.
Freshman Marcella Brooks picked up her second shutout in as many games for the Rebels, recording one save on the afternoon.
