UNC Chapel Hill Rams Soccer Team: 1 0 1.
Chapel Hill, Sept. 24 - Duke University hung around with
the Rams Sunday afternoon for one half - then the Rams completely dominated
a high scoring second half. The Rams took an early lead off a very
pretty header by Justin Burris after Hollings Dworsky picked him out perfectly
(10 min). Duke tied the score just before the half off a header inside
the box (42 min).
Then the Rams let loose a goal explosion in a dominant second half. Justin Burris jump-started the assault by beating an offside trap and then coolly dribbling pass the keeper for his and the Rams' second goal (48 min). Hollings Dworsky then shared his second assist with James Holmes who calmly scored under pressure (55 min). Duke narrowed the score to 3-2 off a great individual chip shot (70 min). Nevertheless, the Rams noticeably controlled the game and the scoring thereafter: Hollings Dworsky (75 min), Justin Burris (80 min), and Harrison Perry (85 min). The second half showed the team can finish off an outclassed squad, like Duke, and the final result should provide a big boost for the Hokie Classic this weekend:
Rams 6 - Duke 2.
Chapel Hill, Sept. 23 - The game versus WFU was postponed
due to rain.
Charlotte, Sept. 16 - The Rams lost a tough match on Saturday
versus a solid UNC-Charlotte team. UNC-Charlotte took an early lead
off a header from a cross (10 min). After a sluggish start, the Rams
took fire upon UNCC goal mostly from throw ins inside the forty-niner 18-yard
box. After a Justin Burris heave into the box, Ben Singer cracked a header
off the crossbar which Justin subsequently buried the ball in the net after
a goal mouth frenzy (42 min).
The second provided equal chances for both teams but neither could convert. And after a consensus distaste for a regulation draw, the two sides agreed to a 10 minute golden goal overtime period. Shortly after the kickoff the forty-niners scored (93 min) a carbon copy of their previous goal and ended the contest:
UNCC 2 - Rams 1.
