TW picked up a seventh shutout in a 1-0 road win over No. 13 Rio Grande. The Bulldogs ranked 12th in the country in shutouts per game.
Akoto is a sophomore who played 11 games for the Bulldogs’ abbreviated season (starting nine). He scored a goal and dished out four assists (2nd most on the team). In the summer of 2019, Akoto played 10 games and scored two goals for the Dalton Red Wolves SC of USL League Two. Akoto spent his pre-college days playing at AFC Wimbledon, which was highlighted with a run into the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup. Akoto was born in Miami and lived there for nine years before moving to London.
