Two MAC Teams Play Host Today In the Second Round of The NCAA Soccer Tournament

Western Michigan and Akron are both hoping to advance to the third round


The 3rd ranked Akron Zips play host to 9th ranked Seattle Redhawks, a team they beat last season. The two teams will begin play at 1 p.m. EST at Cub Cadet Field in First Energy Stadium. The match will be broadcast on ESPN3 and available for stream via the WatchESPN app.

It should be an exciting match as Seattle leads the nation in shots and shots on goal.

The Zips are an experienced team, with senior Stuart Holthusen the current NCAA leader in tournament games played at 7.

Meanwhile in Kalamazoo, the 6th ranked Western Michigan Broncos will play host to the University at Albany Great Danes. Albany advanced to the second round by knocking off Maryland in penalty kicks.

The Broncos are 10-2 at home on the season and have recorded 13 shutouts overall.

The winner will face the winner of Michigan State and Virginia Tech.

The match starts at 1 p.m. and will be available for stream on the WatchESPN app.
