Published: August 28, 2018

AKRON, Ohio – The 17th-ranked NC State men’s soccer team (2-0-0) picked up a massive road victory on Monday evening, defeating No. 2 Akron by a final score of 2-0 at FirstEnergy Stadium. The win marked NC State’s third victory over a top-five foe since second-year head coach George Kiefer took over prior to the 2017 season.


Gabriel Machado (14’) and Aidan Foster (37’) scored the first-half goals that led the Wolfpack to the road victory. The successful strikes were the first goals in the Wolfpack careers of both players.


NC State did a fantastic job locking down a strong Akron attack, allowing a total of nine shots but only one on target throughout the entire evening. Sophomore goalkeeper Leon Krapf made a challenging save in the 29th minute to earn the eighth clean sheet of his career.
