Boise State (9-5-3, 4-2-2 MW) will host its final weekend of soccer for the 2017 season at the Boas Soccer Complex with a game tomorrow against Nevada (1-15, 0-8 MW) at 4 p.m., followed by the home regular season finale against UNLV (12-5, 4-4 MW) on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 1 p.m. Sunday’s match will also serve as senior day with the Broncos honoring their six seniors prior to the match: Baylee Blaser, Madi Campbell, Janelle Flores, Falon Miller, Sarah Taylor and Jessie Vogel.

Friday’s match will also be Family Fun Day, where families with children will get in for only $3 a person.

Sunday will be Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day with Boise State faculty and staff receiving free admission with their Boise State ID.

LAST TIME OUT: Boise State earned four road points last weekend in tallying a 2-2 tie with Colorado State on Friday and a 3-1 victory against Wyoming on Sunday. The performance improved the Broncos' position in the Mountain West standings, as they now possess 14 points to put them in a tie for fourth place. Raimee Sherle was sensational in both games, scoring both goals against the Rams and recording the first score against Wyoming for three goals on the weekend. Her 10 goals on the season ranks second in the Mountain West.

McKenna Kynett and Baylee Blaser also found the scoring column against the Cowgirls, marking the fourth game this season that the Broncos saw three different players find the back of the net. The win on Sunday was just the second win at Wyoming in program history, as well. Sherle, Blaser and Falon Miller also tallied assists over the course of the weekend. Goalkeeper Janelle Flores made eight combined saves in the two games and was particularly exceptional throughout the match against the Cowgirls.

ABOUT NEVADA: The Wolf Pack (1-15, 0-8 MW) are winless in conference play and possess just one victory on the season. They have scored eight goals on the season – three of which have come from Rachel Gensch.

Nevada has given up 2.31 goals per game, but has made a league-best 112 saves on the season, as well.

ABOUT UNLV: The 2016 Mountain West Champions have compiled the most overall wins in the conference at 12-5, but currently sit in sixth place within the league standings at 4-4. They recently dropped a pair of road matches to Fresno State (L, 4-1) and conference-leading San Jose State (L, 3-2).

The Rebels lead the conference in scoring average (2.00), scoring margin (.82), shots (289) and corners (111). UNLV is in the bottom half of the league for goals allowed, however, with a 1.151 GAA.

MOUNTAIN WEST STANDINGS STILL TIGHT: Thanks to its 14 points, Boise State is currently tied for fourth place in the conference standings with San Diego State. New Mexico and Air Force are just ahead in a tie for second with 15 points apiece. Boise State will not only guarantee itself a spot in the conference tournament with two victories this weekend, but would likely elevate itself into the top three of the league standings, as well.

ROAD WARRIORS: Boise State has been sensational away from the Boas Soccer Complex this season with a 5-1-2 record in true road games. Last weekend’s four road points was the best weekend – regardless of being home or away – for the team so far in conference play.

THANK YOU SENIORS: The impact of this year’s senior class on the 2017 season simply can’t be overstated, as the six Broncos have combined for 76 starts and 6,662 minutes played. The six have also combined for eight goals, five assists and 21 total points in the 2017 campaign, as well.

SHERLE DOMINATES: The sophomore was borderline unstoppable last weekend in scoring three goals and recording one assist for seven points over the course of the two games. The performance brings her career numbers to 17 and 41 for goals and points, respectively, putting her in a tie for fourth in both categories in the Bronco record book. Her 25 points and 10 goals on the season are also both No. 3 in the school record book.

NEXT WEEKEND: The Blue and Orange will compete in its final regular season game of the season on Friday, Oct. 27 in Logan, Utah at 3 p.m. against Utah State.
