Akron Men's Soccer Loses in Sweet 16

Well, it certainly wasn't for lack of effort. The University of Akron Men's Soccer team lost a physical 1-0 decision to UNC-Charlotte of the Atlantic 10 Conference in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Giuseppe Gentile punched in a corner kick from Jennings Rex (not making these names up) in the 25th minute and the 49ers never looked back. Though Akron failed to defend their National Championship, they still put up an impressive record given their schedule and due to the fact that seven starters were lost to the MLS from last year's Championship team. Only three of the top eleven from this year's squad are seniors, so barring any unforeseen departures the Zips should be in national title contention once again in 2012.
