UNC/Duke Soccer Postponement Soaked in Controversy

Articles, Sports

A year ago, unranked Duke shocked the top-ranked Tar Heels 1-0 in one of the best men’s soccer games of the entire ACC season. As of right now, it’s unclear if they’ll have the opportunity to do the same again this season.

Due to “inclement weather”, UNC has decided to postpone tonight’s rematch with no makeup date planned at this time. In the wake of 2014’s controversial postponement of the Duke/North Carolina basketball game in Chapel Hill due to snow and ice, rumors began to swirl that North Carolina was intimidated to play the Blue Devils tonight while most UNC fans would be looking ahead to tomorrow’s football showdown with Delaware instead of focusing on the soccer rivalry. We sent our SportsChannel8 Breaking News minivan to Chapel Hill to investigate the conditions of the roads between the Duke campus and UNC’s Fetzer Field.

UNC’s athletics administration has not yet issued a response.
