Men's soccer: Best goals from Week 5 (Video)
It was a dangerous week to be a ranked men's soccer team from the state of Michigan. Akron upset No. 4 Michigan State 4-1, Portland stunned No. 9 Western Michigan 4-1, and Oakland defeated No. 20 Michigan. That should lead to some significant changes in the next edition of the United Soccer Coaches poll.
Here are the best goals from Week 5 of men's soccer action.
Jean-Christophe Koffi, Virginia
Jean-Christophe Koffi scored as heroic of a goal as you'll see in soccer. He broke a 1-1 tie with a game-winning goal as time expired against Davidson. The ball bounced off two defenders and into the goal, giving the Cavaliers the win.
Thomas Ueland, Notre Dame
In a major ACC contest, No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 10 Virginia played to a 1-1 draw after Thomas Ueland tied the game in the 52nd minute with this beautiful left-footed strike that found the upper-90 of the goal.
