Spartans Sweep Weekend WAC Home Series, Top UNLV, 2-1

San Jose, Calif. – San Jose State won its second game in a row defeating UNLV, 2-1, in a Western Athletic Conference men's soccer match.
The Spartans (5-5-2, 3-1-1 WAC) jumped on the scoreboard early with a goal from Eduardo Buenfil in the 16th minute of the match. After a loose ball in front of the goal, the ball was passed back to Buenfil and he drilled to the left side of the net to give the Spartans the 1-0 lead. 
UNLV (6-7-1, 1-3-1 WAC) answered back in the 34th minute with a goal from the Rebels' senior Daniel Moran. Assisted by Nico Clasen, Moran dribbled the ball forward roughly 25 yards away and unleashed a shot which hit the inside of the left post, tying the game at 1-1.

Just four minutes after the start of the second half, the Spartans senior Omar Lemus dribbled up the right side of the field to find Suliman Khorami inside the goal posts for his first goal of the season.  
UNLV had a chance to tie the game on a penalty shot in the 72nd minute, but Spartans goalkeeper Alex Clewis came up with a big save to hold the Rebels to just one goal.
The Spartans outshot the Rebels, 20 to 12. Clewis was credited with three saves.
With the one-goal wins over Grand Canyon and UNLV, San Jose State finishes the week either in third or fourth place in the WAC standings depending on the outcome of Sunday night's match between Seattle U. and Grand Canyon.

The Spartans next take on Cal Baptist University in a conference match Sunday, October 14 at 2:30 p.m. at the Spartan Soccer Complex.
