M Soccer silences Ohio State in Columbus

This game went final last night just when Football was about to start their game, but #23 Michigan Men's Soccer pulled off a huge win last night.

Chaka Daley, who has missed the tournament the last 4 years and had the worst season in program history last year in his 5th season, has appeared to have righted the ship. Unbelievably. 

OSU had their football bye week so they had a large crowd for this game. And they all went home unhappy.

Jack Hallahan gave Michigan a 1-0 lead just 10 minutes in. Hallahan would again make a play and get the ball to Mo Zakyi who buried it for the goal in the 35th minute.

The defense was phenomenal. They hunkered down and prevented any OSU goals. Backup goalie Henry Mashburn had to made zero saves, he is now 2-0 in his career.

Michigan improved to 9-4-2 overall and 5-1-1 in the B1G. Michigan has clinched a top 4 seed in the B1G Tournament and more importantly, home field for the quarterfinals. The Wolverines sit at 13th in the RPI and will most likely make the NCAA Tournament for the first time since Chaka's first year.

Michigan hosts Detroit on Wednesday night on Senior Day and then closes out the regular season at #3 Maryland a week from today.
