Bunbury on hot streak for Zips
by Paul Kennedy, October 14th, 2009 8:45AM



MEN'S NEWS ... No. 1 Akron hasn't lacked for stars in its 12-0-0 run to start the season, but the Zips, who lost 2008 Hermann Trophy winner Steve Zakuani to MLS's Seattle Sounders FC, have been getting major contributions from sophomore Teal Bunbury, the son of former Canada international Alex Bunbury.

Teal Bunbury scored his fifth goal in four games Tuesday to lead Akron to a 2-0 victory at Virginia Tech. He scored his 10th goal of the season, all in the last eight games, taking a pass from fellow sophomore Kofi Sarkodie and slipping through the Virginia Tech defense.

Junior Blair Gavin put the game away for good with third penalty kick of the season in 80th minute. Freshman goalkeeper David Meves earned his eighth shutout. The Zips extended their string of games in which they have not allowed a goal in the first half to 24.

Tuesday Results

* TOP 25 ACTION. Eight other teams in the Soccer America Men's Top 25 were in action on Tuesday night ...

-- Freshman Enzo Martinez set up sophomores Billy Schuler and Kirk Urso with his first collegiate multi-assist game in No. 3 North Carolina's 2-0 win over Campbell that ended a three-game losing skid to the Camels. Martinez was starting in place of injured midfielder Cameron Brown.

-- A pair of outstanding diving saves from senior Akira Fitzgerald preserved No. 4 Wake Forest's 1-0 at College of Charleston. Freshman defender Anthony Arena had the game's only goal off Austin da Luz's corner kick. The assist was da Luz's ACC-leading eighth of the season.

-- No. 6 Maryland got early goals from Drew Yates and Jason Herrick and held on to win, 2-1, at No. 16 Georgetown. Maryland players wore white wrist bands with "A.L. #18" written in black marker for teammate Alex Lee, who was struck by a vehicle in Washington Saturday night and was only released from the hospital hours prior to kickoff.

-- A pair of goals by Federico Nachmann and Alan Sanchez in a 30-second span of the second half led 12th-ranked N.C. State to a 2-0 win over visiting Georgia Southern.

-- Visiting Liberty held No. 17 Virginia to a 1-1 tie. The Cavs broke open a scoreless game in the 78th minute when freshman Will Bates put away the rebound of Brian Ownby's shot off the post, but Liberty responded less than two minutes later when its leading scorer, Darren Amoo headed in a corner kick.

-- No. 20 Brown improved to 7-0-4 with a 3-1 victory at Stevenson Field. Nick Elenz-Martin, Thomas McNamara and David Walls scored for the Bears, who rallied from a 1-0 deficit after 19 minutes.

-- Cole Grossman set up freshmen Andrew Wenger and Ryan Finley for goals off corner kicks and scored the third goal himself in No. 25 Duke's 3-0 win over UNC Greensboro.
