When Jason Mims was hired as the first ever men's soccer coach at UNO, he took on a position full of challenges. It was April 22, a little more than four months away from the start of the season, and Mims was the only piece in place.
A comeback win Friday night and the first-ever home game Sunday highlighted the UNO men's soccer inaugural weekend. In a matchup with two different conference champions from a year ago, the Mavs showed their mettle beating one and having several chances against the other.
All-Summit League forward Max Touloute came off the bench to spark his team to three goals in 15 minutes, and Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne finished off UNO 6-0 Sunday afternoon. Facing their second future conference foe of the season, the Mavs were unable to capture the magic they found against Summit League member UMKC on Aug. 26.
