Akron kicking it around in the middle third is not creative IMHO

They possessed well but really didn't have any more threats to score than we did. Shots were basically even and though we had more saves, we may have had the better chances overall, until OT when we definitely sat back more.

I definitely agree that UCLA was a "park the bus" but we weren't winning that game if it was wide open - they had too much talent in the midfield and overall, we weren't particularly fast which was a pretty big liability against UCLA. I give GG credit for recognizing that we were the less talented team and playing to win however ugly. Whether we like it or not, there is no award for losing pretty.
