USF soccer upsets Akron in double OT



After more than 100 minutes of scoreless soccer, USF has pulled off a significant road victory, edging 14th-seeded Akron 1-0 on Wednesday night to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA championships. The Bulls haven't won multiple games in the NCAAs since 1997 and now get a third shot at third-seeded Connecticut this weekend.

Forty-five seconds into the second overtime, Yohance Marshall scored off a free kick from Simon Schoendorf, who entered the game ranked second in the nation in assists per game.
