Zips register school-record 16th shutout

The top-seeded University of Akron men's soccer team defeated Stanford, 2-0, to advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships for just the third time in school history Sunday at Lee Jackson Field.

"I thought it was a business-like game for us and that is something we have focused on," said Akron coach Caleb Porter in a press release. "I think the tendency, at times, is for teams to try to change things because now you are playing for a national championship. Some put extra pressure on themselves and I think you need to do the exact opposite. You need to continue what you have done all year. For us, that is playing our style -- dictating the game on both sides of the ball and jumping on a team early with our pressure, speed of play and movement."

Teal Bunbury and Anthony Ampaiptakwong both scored in the first half for Akron as the Zips (22-0-0), dominated Stanford (12-6-2) with a relentless attack, resulting in a 16-4 edge on shots, including a 9-3 margin on goal.

Akron, which has already set school records for overall wins and consecutive wins in a season, achieved another program milestone Sunday with its 16th shutout, surpassing the previous high of 15 set in 2005.

UA will face Tulsa, which defeated Northwestern, 1-0 in its third-round match-up, next Saturday at 4 p.m. at Lee Jackson Field.
