MSOC: NC State ties Duke 1-1

Posted October 11, 2013

Duke at N.C. State

— NC State men’s soccer earned a 1-1 (2OT) tie on the road at Duke on Friday night at Koskinen Stadium.

The Pack (4-3-4, 1-3-3 ACC) claimed a 1-0 advantage in the 13th minute on a Duke (4-4-5, 0-3-4) own goal. Travis Wannemuehler worked the ball into possession by beating his defender down the end line from the right side. His centering pass targeted Nick Surkamp in front of the goal, but deflected off of a Blue Devil defender into the right side of the net.

“We had a great chance to go up 2-0 in the first minute of the second half,” said NC State head coach Kelly Findley. “If we bury that chance, it’s a different story. Overall, I thought we played well. We came out and played with great confidence, and it’s always hard to play on the road. That being said, we wanted three points tonight and came away with one.”

State had a pair of chances early in the second half, but could not find the scoring touch. A quick throw-in during the 46th minute found Surkamp in space near the Duke box. He dished a pass back to Bajza, whose shot missed wide right from 18 yards.

Surkamp set up another opportunity in the 51st minute. Fabian Otte found him on a long ball sent upfield. Surkamp shielded his defender to draw a foul just yards from the Duke box. Holden Fender threaded a free kick through the wall, but Duke goalkeeper Alex Long was able to smother it to end the threat.

Those missed opportunities came back to haunt the Pack when, in the 73rd minute, Duke’s Sean Davis hooked a free kick from 30 yards just inside the left post to tie the game 1-1.

State’s best chances in overtime came early in the second period. Wannemuehler found Surkamp on a through pass which was negated by an offside call. Fender had a clean look from 25 yards miss high one minute later.

The Pack earned 10 corners to Duke’s eight on the evening. Otte finished the night with four saves. The Wolfpack is 2-0-4 in overtime matches this season, and 1-0-3 in extra time in conference play.

NC State returns to action on October 19 at 7 p.m. to host Notre Dame on ESPN3. Live stats for the match will be available on GoPack.com. Fans can also follow along with Twitter updates from @PackMensSoccer.
