UNLV won the 2014 Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic on the shoulders of a historic effort by forward Salvador Bernal, who registered three goals and an assist in a 4-3 win against host Bradley (1-1-0) Sunday afternoon at Shea Stadium. Bernals’s heroics came after Bradley stormed to a 2-0 lead 19 minutes into the game and the Braves opened the door to the rally by surrendering two penalty kicks. Bernal’s first goal came in the run of play, pulling the Rebels to within 2-1 by popping Kevin Partida‘s counter attack flank service off the right post and into the net at 34:20. He converted his first penalty kick attempt at 41:19 to forge a 2-2 halftime tie. The Braves grabbed the early lead when forward Christian Okeke worked the right flank, before feeding Cody Lofgren in a dangerous area. Lofgren’s blast deflected back to the top of the penalty area, where Andrew Brown collected the ball and curled in a shot over UNLV keeper Ryan Harding just 6:31 into the game.
