ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Duke redshirt junior Kim DeCesare has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week for the second time this season.

DeCesare, a forward from Massapequa Park, N.Y., registered one goal and two assists as the fifth-ranked Blue Devils netted a 3-0 road victory at NC State on Thursday night and battled 12th-ranked Wake Forest to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

On Sunday against Wake Forest, DeCesare notched the game-tying goal in the 74th minute after the Blue Devils had fallen behind the Demon Deacons on a penalty kick goal. In the win at NC State, DeCesare tallied assists on Duke's first two goals.

DeCesare now owns 11 goals, six assists and 28 points for the season. Her 11 goals rank ninth on Duke's single-season charts.

ACC action resumes Thursday night with five matches on the schedule. Florida State travels to Boston College, while Maryland plays host to Miami. NC State plays at Wake Forest, while North Carolina travels to Duke, and Virginia Tech plays at Clemson. All matches start at 7 p.m.

The Duke-UNC match will be carried live via ACC Digital on YouTube, and the Clemson-Virginia Tech match is scheduled to be shown on ESPN3. TerpsTV will stream the Maryland-Miami match live, and WakeForestSports.com will stream the Wake-NC State contest.
