Caitlyn Kreutz had a goal and an assist to back freshman Emberly Sevilla, who had eight saves in her fifth shutout, as UNLV blanked San Diego State 2-0 in a Mountain West women’s soccer match Sunday at Johann Memorial Field.

Kreutz tallied her sixth goal of the season, assisted by Katie Ballou, in the fourth minute and assisted on Amanda Galbraith’s fourth goal of the season in the 12th minute as the Rebels (9-5-3, 3-3-2) tied the Aztecs (5-9-2, 3-3-2) for second place in the league standings.

Each team had 14 shots, and each put eight on goal. UNLV has beaten San Diego State in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2007 and 2008.
