Duke 3:0 NC State An ugly game on an ugly night in Durham. Cool temps with a steady rain. Nigi Adogwa with a hat trick. Duke scored first in the 38th minute on a header by Adogwa in the box after the Pack failed to clear. The second goal game early in the second half on a weird play. Joe Kelly sent a low shot just past the far post, the State keeper made a quasi save, Adogwa alertly kept the ball from crossing the end line, and then poked it in the net while he was nearly on his backside. Third goal came midway through the second half on a nice shot from just outside the 18. Duke pretty much owned this game...but State was not at full strength due to some injuries, and Queeley who was sitting due to a red card last weekend. When Salter returns for State, they'll have a front line to contend with. One thing that really stood out in this game..Tarantini was pretty low key! I mean he had his usual, "hey, come on!" several times...but he seems to have calmed down considerably. Rennie bitched at the ref the whole game. I guess he thinks that's the sign of a good coach. State's Argentinian midfielders can play...but I've never seen a team that dribbles so much. It's ridiculous. The other thing. State gave Duke WAY too much time and space. They didn't even pressure the ball in their own third. Duke's players had time to tee up several shots. Both teams emptied their benches...but Helton was noticeably missing for Duke tonight. I guess he must have an injury.
