The men's soccer team responded well after losing to Akron, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, last weekend. The Bulls (6-7-1, 2-2-0 Mid-American Conference) conquered the Northern Illinois Huskies (6-6-2, 0-4-0 MAC) by a score of 3-2 at UB Stadium on Friday night to remain undefeated at home this season. The man of the match, sophomore defender Kyle Rogers, scored the first two goals of his career and was pleased with the overall performance of his team.

Akron Zips Buffalo Scorecard

On Saturday night, the men's soccer team not only had to play against the best team in the Mid-American Conference, but they had to deal with the No.1 ranked team in the country. As expected, the Akron Zips (11-0-1, 4-0-0 MAC) bullied the Buffalo Bulls (5-7-1, 1-2-0 MAC) from start to finish in a 4-0 game. Despite the score, Bulls head coach John Astudillo thought the effort from the Zips was top notch. "I think from almost every aspect on the field, Akron was quite a bit better and more efficient than we were," Astudillo said. The Zips came roaring out of the gates, led by freshman forward Darren Mattocks.
