DURHAM, NC (UNCW) — Jamie Dell’s second goal of the season, coming in the 79th minute, broke a 1-all deadlock and lifted UNCW to a 2-1 win over Duke on Tuesday at Koskinen Stadium.

The Seahawks ran their record to 5-3-1 with their second straight win while the Blue Devils, who dropped their first non-conference game of the season, fell to 4-4-2. It was UNCW’s first win in Durham since 2006.

“We’re on a bit of roll in our last three games and we’re hoping that winning becomes a habit,” said UNCW Head Coach Aidan Heaney. “When they (Duke) equalized, we could have hung our heads, but we didn’t. I was delighted with the response which led to Dell putting us back in front.”

It was the second straight year that Dell, who finished with a goal and an assist, broke the hearts of the Blue Devils as he also netted the game-winning marker last season in UNCW’s 2-1 win at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.”

“Jamie is beginning to round into form as we enter conference play. He’s been working hard to improve all areas of his game and it’s paying off.

Following a scoreless first half in which UNCW outshot its host, 6-1, junior Jacob VanCompernolle pushed the Seahawks in front in the 64th minute off assists from Jose Garcia and Dell. VanCompernolle was on the tap-in finish of a cross.

The Blue Devils drew even on leading scorer Brody Huitema’s fifth goal of the season in the 77th minute. Luis Rendon earned an assist on the strike as Huitema scored from 15 yards out.

Dell converted the game-winner as he went 1-v-1 with Duke goalkeeper Alex Long and knocked in the difference maker at the 78:35 mark. Dell gained possession of the ball in the middle of the field and worked his way through the defense before his showdown with Long. Long finished with four saves. Duke attempted to draw even in the 86th minute when Huitema rang the crossbar, but Alex Sauciuc’s follow up shot was stopped by UNCW goalkeeper Sam Williams. Williams made three saves in his third straight start for the Seahawks, who own a 2-0-1 mark during that stretch.

The Seahawks close out their three-game road stretch on Saturday with a Colonial Athletic Association matchup against Hofstra. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.


HIGHLAND PARK, IL (UNCW) — The UNCW women’s golf team posted a team total 314 during the final round Tuesday to finish in 14th place in the Windy City Collegiate Championship at the Northmoor Country Club.

Senior Lori Beth Adams (73-77-74=224) posted a three-over-par 74 on Tuesday to earn a share of 41st place and lead the Seahawks (308-311-314=933). Senior Laverry Kumar (79-77-78=234) finished tied for 64th while fellow senior Megan Burnham (78-79-79=236) ended the event two shots back of Kumar in a tie for 68th. Junior Mallory Warrick (81-78-83=242/T-76th) and senior Jeanne Metivier (78-79-88=245/78th) completed UNCW’s entry.

“Today was a tough day for scoring as the wind picked up, but I felt that we struggled this entire tournament with our ball striking and didn’t really give ourselves much of a chance to score low,” said UNCW Head Coach Cindy Ho. “We had a tough time managing our final nine holes today and learning from that experience is going to be crucial as we progress during the season.”

Second-round leader Southern California (284-278-291=853) led wire-to-wire to claim the team title with a two-stroke victory over Oklahoma State (281-282-292=855). Pac-12 rivals Arizona (285-279-293=857) and Stanford (287-280-290=857) finished in a tie for third while host Northwestern (284-287-296=867) took fifth.

Arizona’s Lindsey Weaver (70-69-69=208) captured individual medalist honors with a five-under-par tournament total of 208, finishing two shots in front of 36-hole leader Kyung Kim (69-68-73=210) and Oklahoma State’s Julie Yang (69-69-72=210). Stanford’s Lauren Kim (75-68-69=212) and Iowa State’s Cajsa Persson (71-70-71=212) ended the event in a tie for fourth.

“This was a national championship-caliber field and it was a good opportunity for us to measure ourselves against some of the top programs in the country,” said Ho. “We still have work to do in regards to course management and our short game, but the most important thing right now is that we need to hit the ball better. We are putting ourselves in situations where we have to give up unnecessary strokes in order to recover from our bad shots and because of that, we’re not giving ourselves a chance to be successful right now.”

The Seahawks return to action Oct. 7-8 in the ECU Lady Pirate Intercollegiate at the Greenville Country Club.

“We have a quick turnaround to get ready for the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate,” said Ho. “We just need to get home and work hard at finding our game so that we can be competitive.”


PITTSBURGH (AP) – Russell Martin homered twice, Marlon Byrd also connected and the Pittsburgh Pirates roared past Cincinnati for a 6-2 victory in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.

In front of a black-clad crowd savoring its first postseason game since 1992, Andrew McCutchen added two hits and reached base four times for Pittsburgh.

Francisco Liriano scattered four hits over seven innings for the Pirates, who will face St. Louis in Game 1 of the NL division series Thursday. Liriano struck out five and walked one to win the first playoff game of his career.

Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto struggled in his third start since coming off the disabled list last month. Cueto gave up four runs in 3 1-3 innings and appeared rattled by a raucous ballpark that taunted him throughout by chanting his name.

RALEIGH, NC (NC STATE) — NC State’s march to a third consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament began Tuesday afternoon, as the Wolfpack men’s basketball team held its first practice of the 2013-14 season.

The Wolfpack started practice a little earlier than usual this year, as a new rule in college basketball holds that college programs can start practicing 42 days before their first game. The NC State coaching staff has titled the first set of practices before the university’s fall break a “mini-camp.”

Head coach Mark Gottfried liked the intensity and competitive nature the players showed in the first day of the “mini-camp.”

“Number one, they competed hard. And that’s important,” Gottfried said. “We were able to put some things in during the fall so we’re a little ahead offensively, but we still have a way to go yet. What I did like was that they did compete. They competed hard and that’s a good place to start.”

Redshirt junior Ralston Turner added: “We got after each other a little bit. Overall, we made each other better and that’s all we want to do.”

The team started with both offensive and defensive work in a half-court setting and a session with Gottfried on the white board before getting into individual shooting and defensive drills.

Later, after 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 controlled sessions, the team concluded the workout with conditioning and free throw shooting.

After winning 48 games and playing in the last two NCAA Tournaments, NC State has a young and inexperienced, but extremely talented, squad. Gottfried’s 2013 recruiting class was ranked in the top 15 in the nation by most recruiting publications. The team also returns 2013 ACC All-Freshman Team pick T.J. Warren, who averaged 12.1 points per game last year. Sophomore Tyler Lewis and fifth-year senior Jordan Vandenburg are two other returning players with experience.

GoPack.com will have practice reports, while exclusive video content can be found on CoachGott.com throughout the preseason leading up to “Primetime With The Pack: Operation Our State,” which is set for Friday, Oct. 18 at PNC Arena at 7 p.m. NC State’s first exhibition contest will be Wednesday, Oct. 30 at Reynolds Coliseum against UNC Pembroke.
