Oct. 3, 2009
BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic men's soccer team fell 3-0 to No. 1 Akron on Saturday night at FAU Soccer Stadium.
The Zips (9-0-0, 2-0-0) got on the board early as Teal Bunbury scored off a corner kick in the second minute of the game to give Akron a 1-0 lead. Later in the first half, Bunbury would score his second tally of the game in the 30th minute to give the Zips a 2-0 advantage.
The Akron offensive onslaught would conclude in the 38th minute when Ben Speas tallied a goal to put the Zips ahead 3-0. The game was dominated on both sides by Akron as they outshot FAU 20-2 and forced the Owls (4-3-2, 0-1-0) to commit a season-high 16 fouls.
The one bright spot for the Owls came late in the second half when Erick Espinosa tallied FAU's only shot on goal during the game. Freshman goalkeeper Jeremy Crumpton made four saves in net for FAU.
Florida Atlantic will be back in action next Saturday afternoon at 12 p.m. when the Owls will face Hartwick for their first conference road game of the season.
