[UMKC-NEBRASKA-OMAHA] New men's program Nebraska-Omaha won in its debut game, recovering from giving up a 4th-minute penalty to beat UMKC, the 2010 Summit League champion, 2-1, on Friday night.

The Kangaroos went ahead on Chris Markey's penalty kick, but the Mavs responded in the second half on goals by freshman Logan Mendez on a breakaway and sophomore Mo Salama's game winner off a corner kick from freshman Jordan Gealy.

UNO decided to launch men's soccer as part of a shakeup of its athletic department and in conjunction with its move from Division II to Division I.

In a shock move, it dropped football and its D2 championship wrestling program.

UNO already has a very successful (D2) women's soccer program and a D1 men's ice hockey program.
