Here’s what happened: The men’s NCAA first round kicked off and there were 13 one-goal games. Yes, 13! (That’s including the three matches that went into PKs).

Here are a few of the many highlights from last night:

This is Part Two of our NCAA Men’s Tournament first-round predictions, based solely on team photos. Let’s do it.

WINNER: Cal State Northridge

See the final four matches after the jump.
