[WAKE FOREST-UNC WILMINGTON 2-1]No. 3 seed Wake Forest got goals from Austin da Luz and Anthony Arena and then held off a late rally by CAA champion UNC Wilmington to move into the third round of the NCAA Tournament with a 2-1 win on Sunday evening at Spry Stadium.
 
"I thought it was a great second-round game," head coach Jay Vidovich said. "UNC Wilmington gave us a heck of a contest. Hats off to them and their performance. I'm very proud of my guys and their performance to get the result. I just see them getting better each game."
 
With the victory, Wake Forest improves to 15-3-3, while UNC-Wilmington closes its season with a 14-3-5 record.
 
The Demon Deacons will face, which won at Michigan State, 2-0. Wake and Duke will square off on Sunday at 5 p.m. (ET) at Spry Stadium.
 
Wake Forest appeared to have Sunday's game well in hand after da Luz gave the team a lead with a 35th minute goal and Arena doubled the lead with a score in the 76th minute. However, UNCW made things interesting late as Shawn Guderian scored in the 86th minute. Wake Forest was able to recover and didn't allow a shot for the Seahawks over the final five minutes.
 
Da Luz increased his point total on the season to 22, which ranks second on the team. The goal for the senior midfielder was his fifth of the season.
 
Arena scored for the third time in his freshman season. All three goals in his rookie year have been game-winning goals.
 
Corben Bone and Zack Schilawski each added assists in the game. The assist for Bone was his 11th of the season and the 36th of his career, tying him for the school record with da Luz. Schilawski notched his sixth assist of the season and increased his point total to a team-leading 28 points.
 
Senior goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald earned his 15th victory in goal on the season. Fitzgerald made one save and allowed the one UNCW goal. Brock Duckworth received the loss for the Seahawks, stopping seven shots and giving up two goals.

Guderian scored his fifth goal of the season for UNC-Wilmington, tying him for the team lead. Daniel Roberts was credited with his fifth assist of the season on the play.
 
Wake Forest finished the game with a 14-6 advantage in shots, including a 9-2 edge in shots on goal. The Deacs attempted seven corner kicks, compared to two for the Seahawks.
