[MAKING A LIST] U.S. under-20 national team forward Andre Akpan scored in his ninth consective game for Harvard when he had the Crimson's lone goal in a 1-1 tie with Holy Cross on Wednesday.

Akpan's streak for consecutive games with at least one goal is tied for 11th all-time on the NCAA Division I men's scoring list

The NCAA record is 16 games with at least one goal set by Akron's Pete Milich (1961-62).

The Harvard record of 13 straight games with at least one goal is held by the legendary Chris Ohiri, who set the mark in 1962-63. Harvard's home field where Akpan scored on Wednesday is named after Ohiri, who died two years after graduating from Harvard.

Like Ohiri, who came to Harvard from Nigeria as part of an African scholarship program, Akpan has roots in Nigeria. His father, Rockey, came to the United States to study and eventually settled with his American-born wife in Grand Prairie, Texas.
