Oct. 1, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - After 90 minutes of regulation and a scoreless tie, the No. 20 Pepperdine women's soccer team battled UNLV in overtime, but ultimately fell to the Rebels, 1-0, in the second overtime period at Peter Johann Memorial Field in Las Vegas, Nev. The Waves fell to 6-4-2 on the season, while the Rebels moved to 5-6-1.

The Waves did not waste any time taking three shots in the first 10 minutes of the match. After an Emily Wynne shot fell wide, Lindsey Redlin followed with a shot on frame, while forward Sophia Medina pushed ahead with a shot that was saved by a Rebel defender.

After one more shot by Jenna Shay, Pepperdine would see UNLV take over in offense as the home team took five shots in a four minute span. After two Pepperdine corner kicks, Shay would get one more shot on frame before the first 45 minutes ended with a scoreless tie.

The Waves took four shots and had two corner kicks in the second period as both teams battled to be the first on board. The Waves defense stayed tight as UNLV took five shots in the second 45 minutes with Pepperdine goalkeeper Kayla Stolte recording her third and final save of the match to keep the score tied and send the game into overtime.

The Rebels kept the visiting team from taking any shots in both overtime periods and at the 106:36 mark, Tanya Roberts scored on a header off of a free kick to give the home team the 1-0 victory.

Redlin and Shay led Pepperdine with three shots each.

Pepperdine is back in action on Sun., Oct. 8 when it opens West Coast Conference play at Loyola Marymount. The 1 p.m. match will conclude the Waves' four-game road trip and will return to Malibu on Oct. 13.
