Five seeds fell at home in the second round of the NCAA Division I Men's Tournament on Sunday.
No. 4 Louisville 1 Michigan State
2. The Spartans won for the first time in eight overtime games in 2018 when DePaul transfer John Freitag scored a golden goal in the 93rd minute, slotting home a loose ball from
Giuseppe Barone's free kick played into the penalty area.
--> The Spartans' win gives the Big Ten three teams in the final 16. No. 2 Indiana and No. 11 Maryland also advanced.
Only the ACC with five teams still alive has more.
No. 5 North Carolina 1 James Madison 2. English freshman Aaron
Ward-Baptiste split two defenders and slipped the ball past the keeper James Pyle for the winner in the 68th minute. The bad news for JMU is that Spanish star Manuel Ferriol, who
scored the first goal, was red-carded in the 89th minute and will miss the next game against No. 12 Virginia Tech.
--> The win moves the Dukes into the final 16 for the first time
No. 14 UCF 0 Lipscomb 1. After beating Washington in Seattle on Thursday, the Bisons traveled to Orlando to face
UCF and won on English freshman Louis Robinson’s goal in the 97th minute. Keeper Chris Zappia, one of the heroes at UW, picked up right where he left off on Thursday night with
five saves in the first half.
--> With the win, Lipscomb became the first Atlantic Sun team to advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament since 1996.
No. 15 Denver 1 Air Force 2. The Falcons entered the postseason with the third best offense in the nation (2.53 goals per game) and jumped out to
an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Klint Parker and captain Austin Dewing.
--> Air Force won its opening game in the NCAA Tournament for only the fourth
time in 13 appearances dating back to 1964.
No. 16 Syracuse 1 Akron 3. Second-half goals by Canadian Marcel Zajac and
Morgan Hackworth, the son of John Hackworth, gave the Zips the win in a match moved to Colgate University because of poor field conditions at the SU Soccer Stadium.
The win was the sixth in a row for the Zips, who entered the Mid-American Tournament with a 6-6-2 record.
-- Michigan, which won, 11-10, over Princeton, in a 14-round shootout on
Thursday, lost by the same score on penalty kicks at Notre Dame. This time, the shootout went 12 rounds. Wolverines keeper Henry Mashburn, who represented Honduras at the 2017 Under-20 World
Cup, made two stops with the game on the line against Princeton and did it again with a stop in the sixth round at South Bend. But two saves by junior goalkeeper Duncan Turnbull sent the No. 7
Irish into the third round against No. 10 Virginia.
-- St. Mary's (18-0-1) remained unbeaten with a 1-0 win over Oregon State in match moved to Fresno Pacific because of the poor air
quality in Moraga. The win set up a Bay Area date with three-time defending champion Stanford.
