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.
It was announced July 18 that former Creighton goalkeeper Brian Holt agreed to join the UNO soccer staff as goalkeeper's coach for 2012. Holt is currently finishing up his first professional soccer season with the United Soccer League's Harrisburg City Islanders and will be in Omaha in late August.
Though they were expected to finish dead last in the league, the Mavs are currently second in the standings and may be starting to open some eyes.
