MEN'S NEWS ...Akron confirmed its No. 1 ranking in the Soccer America Men's Top 25 by capturing the tournament it hosted this weekend with wins over Indiana (1-0) and Saint Louis (4-0).

The Zips, who lost 2008 Hermann Trophy winner Steve Zakuanito MLS's Seattle Sounders FC, has been getting their scoring by committee. Sophomore Michael Nanchoff, son of former U.S. international George Nanchoff, had the winning goal against Indiana on a free kick. Sophomore Teal Bunbury, who scored twice against SLU, is the son of former Canada star Alex Bunbury.

Sophomores Kofi Sarkodie and Darlington Nagbe connected on a highlight-reel goal to open the scoring against Saint Louis. Freshman Yoram Mwila, who first came to Ohio from Zambia in 2006 to attend Brad Friedel's Premier Soccer Academies as part of the Grassroots Soccer Partnership, finished out the scoring with his third goal of the season.

Akron dominated the struggling Billikens, outshooting them, 21-3.  "If we are on the ball enough, we are going to find the seams," Akron coachCaleb Porter said. "That's what happened today, and we put the game away."

* CROWD COUNT:
-- The sell-out crowd of 2,443 fans for the Akron-Indiana game set a record for Lee Jackson Field.

-- No. 2 North Carolina handed Duke its first loss of the season, winning, 1-0, before 4,439 fans, the second largest men's crowd in Fetzer Field history.

-- Missouri State spoiled a Missouri Valley record crowd of 5,609 at Creighton's Morrison Stadium, beating No. 4 Bluejays, 1-0.
