Soccer teams win

Men's soccer

"They won but..."

Those words have become the norm lately when talking about the Zips, who escaped Sunday's game against St. Francis with an overtime win.

This time it was Pablo Moreira netting a game-winning goal.

Maybe these close games are the product of lesser teams gunning harder for Akron, which held the nation's No. 1 ranking for a month last year.

Coach Caleb Porter says it's that the balls aren't bouncing the right way. In other words, Akron needs more luck.

The Zips will play Robert Morris at home on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Women's soccer

With a goal in the 79th minute, freshman Kate Ferrara kept Akron's undefeated record alive.

The Zips beat Valparaiso 1-0. They moved to 4-0 also because of Krystin Wilson's second shutout this season in goal.

A few more weekends like this and the question will arise: Which is the better soccer team on campus?

Akron will play Marshall at home on Sunday at 1 p.m.
