[NORTHERN ILLINOIS-AKRON] No. 3 Akron extended its win streak to six matches and pushed its run of consecutive shutouts to seven with a 2-0 victory at Northern Illinois on a damp and windy Saturday afternoon at NIU Soccer Complex.

The Zips are now unbeaten in their last 42 Mid-American matches (39-0-3), which is tied with Clemson (1972-80) for the second-longest run in NCAA history. Furman went unbeaten in 46 straight conferences contests from 1999-2003.

Freshman Phil Fives scored his first career goal after 91 seconds and Reinaldo Brenes stayed white hot with his seventh goal in four matches in the 85th minute.

NIU's Rocco Taglia was sent off in the 57th minute after being shown his second caution.

UA goalkeeper David Meves, who finished with five saves to hold off the Huskies, earned the 47th shutout of his four-year career and now trails the school's all-time leader, Evan Bush (2005-08), by just one in that category. The Zips have not allowed a goal in their last 572 minutes.

Akron starters Chad Barson and Robbie Derschang were kept out of the game because of injuries.
