NCAA tab
 

Akron saw their dreams of a perfect season end as the Zips drew 2-2 on the road to Ohio State in dramatic fashion Wednesday night. Darren Mattocks broke a 1-1 deadlock for Akron in the 68th minute and Akron appeared to on their way to a seventh-straight win, but David Timestra scored with three seconds left in regulation to equalize. Neither team could score in the overtime period. A record 7,255 fans turned out for the match. 

North Carolina celebrated their ascendence to No. 2 in the NSCAA rankings by suffering a 2-1 upset at the hands of Old Dominion on Tuesday. Enzo Martinez put the Tar Heels up early with his third goal of the season coming in the 25th minute. Gideon Asante leveled for Old Dominion just seconds before halftime. Old Dominion survived a UNC offensive onslaught after the break and eventually nicked a game winner in the 80th minute. Asante completed his brace with a cool finish off a breakaway.

Elsewhere, Elon managed to draw No. 9 Duke 1-1 on Tuesday. A 56th-minute goal by Christopher Tweed-Kent was offset by a 74th minute strike from Denzel Ogunayse.
