Notes from tonight's season-opening practice...
Perhaps the Zips are overcoming their MAC inferiority complex.
Akron won at Miami tonight 1-0, making it the Zips' second-straight MAC win, moving the team to 3-4 in conference play and 10-4 overall.
Haja Dumbuya scored the game's only goal with an assist from Christine Vacha.
Akron will play next at Ball State on Sunday afternoon.
The Zips lost another MAC match Friday night.
This time, Kent State repaid the Zips for their loss earlier in the season at Rhodes Arena. After the 3-0 loss, Akron moved to 7-14 and 1-6 in the MAC.
The next match will be the season's most challenging. The Zips will head to Athens for a battle Saturday against No. 21 Ohio
