Stockton, Calif. – The Pacific men's soccer team made it two wins in a row after they took down the visiting UNLV Rebels 4-2 at Knoles Field. Tyson Fox scored a pair of goals and Wouter Verstraaten converted on a late penalty kick to help seal the victory.
"We started out really well and created a lot of chances," said head coach Ryan Jorden. "The guy's response from coming from behind initially to then equalize and go ahead was terrific. Obviously, we still have things we want to grow in and work on but I think we showed another dynamic tonight with being able to come from behind."
The Orange and Black added one more insurance goal in the 67th minute after the Rebel goalie committed a foul in the box, giving Pacific a penalty shot. Wouter Verstraaten lined up for the kick and rifled it past the goalie for his first goal of the season and the 4-2 lead.
The Tigers continue play at home this Sunday against the Western Michigan Broncos at 1 PM. Live stats and video will be available this match.
