[AKRON-OHIO STATE] Englishman Luke Holmes, the 2010 NAIA National Player of the Year, came off the bench to score one goal and add as assist in his Akron debut to lead the No. 5 Zips to a 3-1 over Ohio State in front of a record crowd of 5,819 fans Wednesday night at FirstEnergy Stadium – Cub Cadet Field.

Akron (6-0-2) extended its NCAA record home unbeaten streak to 43 matches with the win.

Freshman DeAndre Yedlin had his first collegiate goal in the 21st minute, splitting a pair of defenders on the right flank and slipping the ball past the keeper from a near impossible angle and off the far post.

Yedlin, a product of the Seattle Sounders' academy program, came up big with the key defensive stop, clearing a shot by Parnell Hegngi off the line in the 67th minute.

Thomas Schmitt responded with his first goal of the season two minutes later, and Holmes completed the scoring for the Zips in the 82nd minute when he shook his defender and fired a rocket off the crossbar and into the back of the net.

In between the goals by Schmitt and Holmes, Sebastian Rivas scored Ohio State's lone goal.
