UNLV women’s soccer fell to the San Diego State Aztecs in overtime Friday night, 0-1, at Peter Johann Memorial Field. 

In the first half, the Rebels attempted nine shots on goal while the Aztecs shot six. UNLV was offense-heavy in the first half, causing the Aztecs to rack up 11 fouls.

Despite a big offensive effort, UNLV would go scoreless through the first half as they headed into the locker room, still 0-0 with the Aztecs.

In the second set, 45 minutes into the game, Rebel goalie Riley Liebsack would make back-to-back diving saves near the 65-minute mark. Liebsack would make another crucial save two minutes before the end of the second half. 

As neither team was able to score either half, the game headed into overtime. Aztec’s Anna Toohey scored on the Rebels, sealing the victory for San Diego State with only an extra 59 seconds on the clock. 

Despite the loss, the Rebels still have a winning record as they sit 8-6 overall for the season, but fall to 1-4 in conference play. 

UNLV women’s soccer will be back in action on Oct. 10 to host New Mexico with a 1 p.m. kickoff. Catch the game live broadcasted on the Mountain West Digital Network.
