By Michael Beaven Published: September 4, 2011

Junior Scott Caldwell and sophomore Darren Mattocks each scored a goal to guide the No. 2 ranked University of Akron men's soccer team to a 2-1 overtime victory against host Cal State Northridge on Saturday night at Matador Soccer Field.

Caldwell's goal came in the 106th minute following a pass from freshman DeAndre Yedlin.

Mattocks netted his goal in the 25th minute following a pass from Caldwell to give UA a 1-0 lead.

Yarden Azulay knotted the score at 1-1 with a Northridge goal in the 82nd minute.

Northridge played a man down for a majority of the match after Nicholas Hamilton was sent off in the 18th minute after getting his second yellow card.

The Zips (2-0-1) held an advantage over the Matadors (1-2-0) in shots (24-8) and shots on goal (14-1).
