Men’s Soccer Loses 2-0 to #3 Akron

The men’s soccer team faced third-ranked Akron, their toughest opponent of the season so far, last night at Jeffrey Field. The shutout loss gives Penn State an overall record of 6-4-2 and a 1-1-1 record in the Big Ten. Despite starting off the season strong, the team has not won a game since their Big Ten opener against Wisconsin.

Penn State did not allow a goal until the 27th minute when Akron scored off a breakaway. In the 41st minute, Akron was awarded a penalty kick after Penn State knocked a Zips player down in the box. Akron was able to score its second goal off the penalty kick.

Hasani Sinclair, Owen Griffith, and Marvin Ledgister all had shots on goal, but were unable to capitalize. Penn State only allowed 3 total shots in the second half, and keeper Emmanuel Martin had 3 saves.

Penn State plays again on Sunday against Michigan State  (5-6-1 overall,  1-1-0 Big Ten). The game will kickoff at 3 p.m. at Jeffrey Field and will also air live on the Big Ten Network.
