[DUKE-WAKE FOREST] No. 5 Duke needed a goal from Kim DeCesare in the 75th minute to rally for a 1-1 tie with No. 12 Wake Forest on Sunday afternoon at Koskinen Stadium.
 
“I thought we played well in spurts,” said Duke coach Robbie Church. “Wake Forest has given up only nine goals all year.  We have to play better under pressure and make better decisions.  I thought in the first half we played really well until the final third.  Then in the final third we were not dangerous and dynamic enough.”
 
Even though the Blue Devils dominated play throughout the first half, it was Wake Forest that was able to get on the board first on Katie Stengel's penalty kick in the 43rd minute.

The Demon Deacons held onto their lead until the 75th minute when DeCesare headed in a Laura Weinberg cross to tie the score at 1-1.

After being outshot 14-7 in regulation, Wake Forest turned up the intensity in overtime, and a strike by Rachel Nuzzolese to start the second overtime period just missed finding the inside of the left post.

“We’re satisfied with the tie in this game,” said Wake coach Tony da Luz. “Duke is a very good team. They’re one of the best teams in the country, so to come in here and get a tie, we’re OK with it. We’d have loved to get three points, but we have three games to go and we feel like if we perform well in those three games, we have a good chance of finishing in the top four [in the ACC].”
