Soccer: Everything to know for Ohio's final regular season match

Ohio is coming off two vital Mid-American Conference victories against Toledo and Western Michigan this past week. Those two wins moved Ohio into sixth place in the MAC standings and have put the team in a win-and-in scenario on the road against Akron this week.

Here is everything you need to know about Ohio’s final matchup.

Match Information

Opponent: Akron

Venue: FirstEnergy Stadium (Akron, OH)

Time: 3 p.m.

Opponent Notes

- Akron comes into this match boasting an overall record of 3-8-4 with a 2-6-2 record in MAC play. 

- Akron is 5-9-3 against Ohio going back to 2005, with the most recent match ending in a 1-0 defeat to Ohio in the 2021 season. 

- Akron is 2-6-2 in the MAC this year, but their last five matches have featured only one loss and a season-high five goals scored last week against Toledo.

- Akron has allowed 16.6 shots per game this season to MAC opponents so Ohio should look to take advantage of a high shot average and put pressure on Akron’s defense.

Player to watch

Sophomore midfielder Ella Hadley leads Akron in many important categories such as goals scored, points, shots, and shots on goal. Limiting her effectiveness should be the main focus of Ohio’s game plan and her struggle should result in Ohio’s success.
