Eight minutes in, disaster struck for the Wolverines. They’d fight. They’d keep their composure. But they’d never recover.
In that pivotal eighth minute of the Michigan men’s soccer team’s match at University of Nebraska-Omaha Friday, Maverick forward Aaron Uribe hit a header over senior goalkeeper Andrew Verdi. The shot set the Wolverines back a goal early, gave Omaha momentum and furthered a tense environment for Michigan in their first road game of the season.
