Eating the MAC alive

The Zips beat Western Michigan 5-0 to advance to the MAC Championship (2 p.m. Sunday against Buffalo at Lee Jackson Field). Junior Sinisia Ubiparipovic and freshman Geir Nyheim scored two goals apiece for the Zips. Goaltender Evan Bush continues to be an all-world freshman.

Akron also cleaned up with postseason conference awards. The three biggest awards went to the Zips: Player of the Year, Ross McKenzie; Coach of the Year, Ken Lolla; and Freshman of the Year, Bush. Also, seven of the 11 first-team all-MAC players were Zips. They were Bush, McKenzie, Ubiparipovic, Yohann Mauger, Dino Campellone, Matt Tutich and Ossie Michalsen. Akron also placed two players on the second-team all-MAC: Corey Sipos and Jon McClain.

It has been an unbelievable year and this team got everything it deserved.
