    As with any organization, identities of those who have contracted COVID-19 is private information. Not sure I agree with that policy, since it is a matter of public health. But this is consistent across corporations and institutions throughout our nation. All this to say that I have no idea how or why Akron MSOC is so stricken.

    Zips have seven missing to COVID-19.

    And we thought 2019 was season from Hell!

    Hardly quality soccer , but very competitive nonetheless.

    Zips again with seven out of roster. And NOT the same seven from previous match! What is going on here!?

    "It's cruel when it happens that late in the game, with just two minutes left," Mountaineer coach Dan Stratford said. "Although, it wasn't like we were trying to hang on at the end by any stretch. In fact, I thought it was quite the opposite. I thought we had the better of the game throughout, quite honestly. The stats will likely support it and so will the possession, I would anticipate. I have to give credit to Akron, they're a quality team. That was a great game of football, really, and I wish we didn't have to be on the receiving end of an unfortunate result."

    "That was unbelievable, the guts, the heart, I hope people appreciate how special that was," Akron head coach Jared Embick commented. "We have had guys train two days since March 17 having to play minutes, guys just grinding it out, nowhere near full fitness from what we have been having to go through. To gut it out, to grind it out, to stick together and play, I hope people really realize that probably was one of the most special efforts I have ever seen from a team. I'm incredibly proud."
