Unfortunately, due to a spotty stream I missed much of the first half. The stream came back in time to see Akron midfielder Eric Stevenson take a cracking shot from outside the box, which sailed just wide of the post. He followed it up with another just a minute later, which was blocked.

Akron dominated possession in the first half, or at least the latter part of it.
