SAN JOSE—Andrea Puljiz and Kelly Nunn each scored goals as the San Jose State women’s soccer team shut out Nevada 2-0 Friday afternoon in a Western Athletic Conference match at the Spartan Soccer Field.

The Spartans’ first goal came at 19:57 as Puljiz dribbled down the field through the defenders and shot on goal from about 35 yards away. The unassisted goal was Puljiz’s second of the season and her first career game-winning goal.

Goalie Erin Lavey started the run for San Jose State’s second goal. She threw a pass to Nunn who dribbled up field and played a two-man game with Cori Borja. Nunn scored on a breakaway from the center of the field.

The shutout is the first for Lavey and the Spartans this season. Lavey’s record improves to 2-5 on the season. She made five saves in the match.

"We started to play together as a team today," said interim head coach Cris Gilmore. "We played our game for 90 minutes. Our team gave 110 percent effort. This win is a step towards our goal of making the WAC Tournament."

San Jose State improves to 2-9 on the season and 1-2 in the WAC, while Nevada falls to 2-8 overall and 0-1 in the WAC. The Spartans host Boise State Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. in Spartan Stadium.
