[ELON-DUKE] Clint Irwin was sensational in goal as Elon held No. 9 Duke to a 1-1 tie on Tuesday night.

Senior Cole Grossman scored for the Blue Devils in the 56th minute but they could add to their lead.

"I said to the boys that sometimes in a game like that you want to make sure that you gain a second goal to make sure that you have a little bit of a margin of error," said Duke coach John Kerr. "We didn't get that second goal and unfortunately scored an own goal. And that really got them into the game and got their spirits up."

The Phoenix evened the score in the 74th minute when a shot by Denzel Ogunyase was deflected by a Duke defender into the goal.

Irwin, who finished with nine saves, then held off Duke, stopping Grossman on a free kick with just under five minutes to play in regulation and pushing freshman Jonathan Aguirre's free kick off the crossbar and parrying a shot from Nick Sih in the first overtime.
