Akron and Louisville are tied at 0 at halftime.
The Cardinals have had the two best opportunities to score, however. One shot bounced off the right post. On another play, Chris Korb used his hand to redirect a blocked shot in the box. It should have been a penalty kick for Louisville, but the ref missed the handball call.
