UNO women's soccer gets own goal from Nebraska to defeat the Huskers

From hockey to women's tennis, check out the head coaches of UNO athletics.

LINCOLN — UNO got an own goal from Nebraska and then relied on a solid defensive effort to earn a 1-0 road win over the Huskers on Thursday night.

The own goal came in the 15th minute, and the Mavericks played from in front the rest of the way.

UNO goalkeeper Mia Reedtz Rehde Olesen finished the night with six saves, five of which came before halftime.

Nebraska outshot the Mavs 12-0 in the first half and 22-1 for the match. UNO's only shot attempt came in the 80th minute from Sophia Green.

Sarah Weber led Nebraska's offense with four shot attempts, while Theresa Pujado and Haley Peterson attempted three each.

UNO recorded its second shutout this season as it improves to 2-2. Nebraska drops to 3-2 as it's been shut out the past two matches.

Both teams return to action Sunday. UNO hosts Northern Colorado at 7 p.m. Sunday, while Nebraska plays at home against Loyola-Chicago at 1:05 p.m.
