[COLLEGE MEN] Akron, North Carolina, Maryland and Louisville -- the top four teams in the Soccer American Men's Top 25 rankings -- all moved into the finals of their men's conference tournaments with wins on Friday night.

AKRON-BUFFALO. No. 1 Akron (17-1-1) defeated Buffalo, 3-1, to move into the Mid-American championship game for the fourth year in a row.

The Zips, who will take on No. 2 seed Western Michigan in Sunday's final, got goals from Jamaican freshman Darren Mattocks (his 13th goal of the season), Michael Nanchoff (eighth goal) and Scott Caldwell (free kick for first goal of his career).

Akron extended its home unbeaten streak to 35 matches (34-0-1) – the fourth longest run in NCAA history

NORTH CAROLINA-BOSTON COLLEGE. Uruguayan-born star Enzo Martinez put away his own rebound in the 55th minute to provide the game's only goal in Carolina's 1-0 win over Boston College in the ACC semifinals.

The win extends Carolina's unbeaten streak to 12 games. The Tar Heels (16-2-1) take on No. 3 Maryland Sunday at 1 p.m. at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C.

MARYLAND-VIRGINIA. Senior Jason Herrick scored two goals to help Maryland avenge a pair of 2009 postseason losses and blank defending ACC and national champion Virginia, 2-0, for its 12th straight win.
Maryland’s Zac MacMath, the ACC's top keeper, preserved the shutout with a save on Ari Dimas’ penalty kick in the 44th minute.
MacMath made four saves on the night for his 12th shutout of the season, tying his previous program-best mark for shutouts in a season that he set in 2008.

LOUISVILLE-NOTRE DAME. Louisville (16-0-2) maintained its undefeated season with a 1-0 shutout win against Notre Dame at Red Bull Arena and moved into the Big East final against Providence.

J.T. Murray had the game's only goal, collecting the rebound of his own shot in front of the net and scoring his third goal of the season.
Notre Dame found the back of the net twice in the second half, but both times the goals were called off for offside.
