No. 2 Carolina Takes Fourth Straight From No. 11 Duke, 2-1
The Tar Heels, who have won their first two ACC matches for the first time since 1987, got goals from Schuler in the 22nd minute and Brown in the 69th minute for all the scoring they would need. Duke got back in the match with a 79th-minute goal from Ryan Finley, but Carolina's defense limited the Blue Devils to just five shots on the night - all in the second half.
The Tar Heels, who have not lost to Duke since 2006, extended their winning streak over the Blue Devils to four games, marking the longest such streak for Carolina since the 1954-55 seasons. The victory also secured the first point towards the 2009-10 Carlyle Cup, the all-sports competition between UNC and Duke, for the Tar Heels.

In front of a crowd of 1,752 at Spry Stadium, the Cavaliers were able to capitalize on a scoring opportunity off of a corner kick in the 24th minute. Neil Barlow (Herndon, Va.) served the ball and Volk fired a shot from close range that trickled over the goal line.
