The Pioneer Soccer team learned its opponent for Sunday’s Second Round NCAA Men’s Soccer Game – The UNLV Rebels.

UNLV advanced over host San Diego State in the first round game Thursday on the basis of 6-5 penalty kick advantage after eight rounds of PKs finally produced a winner, following a 1-1 OT tie at SDSU’s Sports Deck. UNLV will meet at sixth-overall national seed DU on Sunday at 5 pm (MT) at Ciber Field at DU.

UNLV has a losing record of 10-11-2 on the season, but had advanced to the NCAA tournament by winning the WAC tournament auto bid over Air Force, 2-1. The Rebels moved their unbeaten streak to five games to improve to 10-11-2 on the year, while SDSU saw its season end at 9-4-6.

  1. UNLV is a very offensively-oriented team, but defense has been their downfall, and why they had a losing record. That said, they are on a hot streak now, and the Pios will need to play smart, and bring numbers forward to cause them trouble.
