SIU-E is coached by Cale Wasserman

This is his first year

he had been the assistant at Michigan State for 4 years before 

their coach has an impressive coaching background.   Was head coach at Div. 2 school and took them to the national finals in 2012.  You can read more about his background below (if interested)

 

https://www.siuecougars.com/sports/m-soccer/coaches/Cale_Wassermann?view=bio

 

SIU-E has a current record of 8-3-2

they have scored 24 goals in 13 games (1.85 per game)

 

in preseason, they had a high quality 3 -2 win over a top 25 team....Kentucky

 

SIU-E started their regular season with a 0-0 tie at Michigan State

4-3 home win over Evansville

2-1 home loss to St. Louis  (in 2 overtimes)

2-1 home win over Butler (in 2 OT's)

    trivia for you....I could not think of the team nickname for SIU-E

 

they are the cougars

 

their best player(according to top drawer soccer) is midfielder Jorge Gonzalez...5'11 senior from Valencia, Spain

top drawer soccer has him ranked as the 50th best player in the country -midseason (ranking is for soph, jr and senior)

Carlo is the highest ranked Akron player at #67

Gonzalez has 9 goals and 4 assists (wears #10)

they have several guys with 2 goals

Lachlan McLean has 4 goals for SIU-E (6'0 senior forward from Australia)

Jorgen Petterson leads them with 5 assists (6'0 senior midfielder from Norway)

I think you’ll be able to say that for every match as we progress through what’s left on the slate.

The SIUE match tonight was very predictable when schedule was released as being pivotal.  And here we are.

Wow....another goal to make it 3-0 at 89:22

 

Zips could be in sole possession of first place in the league after tonight

 

Northern Illinois leads Western Michigan 2-1 on their home field at half time

 

If NIU holds on for win, top 4 in league would be:

Akron      2-0-1

2.  NIU     2-1

2. SIU-E   2-1

4. WMU    1-1-1

 

if NIU holds on, that will make the Nov. 2 game against NIU....the biggest game of the year.....

 

great win tonight....by the Zips.....

they played without Marco Milanese.....and they still got a clean sheet

 

way to go, ZIPS

Akron is now the only team in the MAC without a loss

article has some quotes from Coach Embick...and also from Mani

   about Mani's comments....a very knowledgeable zips soccer fan....has been saying all year "You can't score if you don't shoot"

Congratulations to Mani and David on their great goals against SIU-E and Michigan State
