Host North Carolina swept a rare men's and women's twinbill against archrival Duke, winning the women's game, 2-1, and then taking the
men's game, 1-0, in overtime.
All the goals in the women's game came in the first 25 minutes. A wide-open Casey Nogueira rocketed her eighth goal of the season from 11 yards out to break
a 1-1 tie after UNC's Whitney Engen
and Duke's Elisabeth Redmond
had traded goals.
UNC and Duke treated
the Fetzer Field crowd to plenty of action. Goalie Ashlyn Harris
made two spectacular saves midway through the second half to protect the Heels' lead.
Duke's Allison Lipsher
had a trio of diving and leaping saves to deny shots by Yael Averbuch
and Tobin Heath
The Tar Heel men have struggled this season, so the victory on Ryan Adeleye
's goal in the 103rd
minute should be considered an upset, UNC was 3-3-4 going into the game against Duke, the No. 8 team in the Soccer America Men's Top 25 rankings.
The crowd of 4,717 for the doubleheader
marked the largest crowd in UNC men's history and was the nation's third largest crowd of the season for a women's game.
