Tawni Martino scored her team-leading fourth goal of the season, but UNLV snapped a tie eight minutes into overtime and the LMU women's soccer team fell 2-1 to the Rebels in its final game before opening WCC play next week.
The Lions headed to Las Vegas on Friday and was able to enjoy some team bonding on the Las Vegas Strip on Saturday for lunch. Sophomore transfer Deprise Brazel took some great pictures that you can see below. Deprise transferred from Davidson College in North Carolina. When she isn't on the soccer field she loves taking photos. She has even entered some of her photos into online contests. Next contest she enters I will post the link so you can vote!
