Who would have ever thought a MAC team could so dominate the Big Ten in any sport... Well, it appears they can, at least in soccer. Tuesday night the Akron U Zips thrashed the Michigan team at Akron 7-1. Shots on Goal favored Akron as well, 13-3. Michigan appeared to be able to do only one thing right, and that was to continuously try to injure Akron players with hard fouls, particularly in the last 15 minutes of the game. It's a shame that when a team can't win, they feel so compelled to take out their frustrations by trying to physical disable a player on the other team...
Akron is now 2-0-1 against the Big Ten this year, with the tie coming about as a result of a desperation shot by Ohio State in the last two seconds of regulation time.
Akron's next game is October 23rd against Western Michigan at Akron. Catch the game on the internet at GoZips.com (monthly or annual fee required).
