SU Men's Soccer falls to No. 24 Akron, drops fifth of last six games
The Syracuse University men's soccer team is in the midst of a down season in 2017.
After advancing to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament one season ago, the Orange now find themselves 5-5 overall on the year and barely inside the top 100 teams in the country.
However, the Orange had a terrific opportunity on Monday night, as the No. 24 Akron Zips paid a visit to the SU soccer stadium.
It was a scoreless game for most of the first half until Ezana Kahsay scored in the 34th minute to give the Zips a 1-0 lead.
After that, the Orange had several chances to score the game-tying goal but was turned away each time.
With the loss, SU drops to 5-5 overall and will host North Carolina State on Friday night at 7 p.m.
