For the Michigan men’s soccer team (10-2-1 overall, 3-1-1 Big Ten), bouncing back was the emphasis on Wednesday — and it did just that. After a gut-wrenching 1-0 loss to No. 2 Indiana on Sunday, the Wolverines showed resilience with a 5-0 victory at home against Detroit Mercy (1-10-2, 0-4-1 Horizon).
The stage was set for a Friday night showdown between the Michigan women’s soccer team (6-6 overall, 2-3 Big Ten) and Ohio State (6-4-1, 3-1-1). The Wolverines snapped their two-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory.
Despite an early three-point deficit, the Wolverines clawed their way out thanks to a service ace from junior setter MacKenzi Welsh and kills from freshman outside hitter Paige Jones, junior outside hitter Sydney Wetterstrom and senior outside hitter Carly Skjodt.
