Additional thoughts and comments during the game @pksport
The Tar Heels, ranked third nationally, are looking to avenge an 11-8 loss to the Blue Devils, ranked sixth nationally, back in mid-March at Fetzer Field.
Since then, both teams have gone on two of the best winning streaks in the country as Duke is riding a nine-game unbeaten streak with the Tar Heels haven't lost in seven games, since losing to the Blue Devils.
Both teams top the ACC in numerous categories including goals per game (Duke - 13.53, UNC - 12.77), and assists per game (Duke - 8.07, UNC - 7.08), and each has players topping the league's scoring lists.
Duke's Jordan Wolf leads the ACC with 2.67 goals per game, followed closely behind by both North Carolina's Joey Sankey and Marcus Holman who have averaged 2.46 goals per game.
Holman leads the ACC tallying 4.77 points per game with Wolf sitting in close second with 3.93 points per game.
Bottom line, on paper both teams are sitting more or less even, which sets up for another great rival game in the Triangle as each team will battle for a place in the ACC Championship final game on Sunday.
