Carlyle Cup Update

North Carolina defeated Duke for the first time this year, racking up a 3-0 victory in women's soccer. The win extended UNC's current streak to 13, dating back to an opening season loss back in August. The Heels remain second in both soccer polls, behind undefeated and unanimous top-ranked Notre Dame.

The Duke game, along with a Virginia shutout earlier in the week helped defender Jessica Maxwell earn ACC player of the week, the fifth such honor to go to a Tar Heel in seven weeks. UNC has now defeated every ACC team in the Top 25 except top ten Wake Forest, who the Tar Heels face in the closing game of the season, on October 27th.

The win closes the Carlyle Cup standings to 1.5 to 1 in Duke's advantage, with all scores predicated on the two teams not meeting in the ACC field hockey, volleyball, or women's soccer playoffs. The next scheduled UNC-Duke meeting is in men's soccer, on October 20th in Durham.
