South Omaha Classic

By Garrett Gordon. CREATED Aug 18, 2013

Omaha - The UNO soccer team opened up their exhibition season against Penn State on Saturday Night.  The game was played at Collin Stadium and dubbed the "South Omaha Classic".

Penn State won the Big Ten last year, but a fiesty UNO played them very close.  Penn State scored a goal off a corner kick in the first half, and that was the only goal they scored.  The Nittany Lions beat the Mavs 1-0.  The game was not without a little controversy.  A late second half shot appeared to be the equalizer for UNO, but the refs said it hit off the crossbar.  Replays show that the ball actually did go in the net.
