WILMINGTON, North Carolina – While conference play has begun following a win at Charleston, the Seahawks (4-3-1) visit Duke (4-3-2) on Tuesday for a key non-conference tilt as the season approaches the midpoint for both programs.

For the Seahawks, a win would aid their resume for an at large berth to the NCAA tournament later in the season while the Blue Devils have fashioned an impressive 4-0-1 mark outside of the ACC.

Aidan Heaney and his UNCW squad topped Colonial Athletic Association newcomer Charleston, 1-0, last weekend as Jack Ward came off the bench to score early in the second half for the game’s lone goal.

Just 2:50 in to the second half, Ward was on the finishing end of a cross from Jamie Dell, who beat his defender to the end line and then sent a low cross to Ward in the middle of the penalty area.

Sam Williams, who moved into the starting lineup against Campbell, made three saves in recording the shutout. In two starts last week, he finished with seven saves and posted a 0.45 goals against average. The Seahawks have allowed just 1.19 goals per game through eight games.

The Blue Devils dropped their last outing, 4-1, at ACC newcomer and second-ranked Notre Dame. It was a 2-1 game before the Irish tacked on two goals in the final two minutes of the game.

UNCW tripped the Blue Devils, 2-1, in Wilmington last season. The Seahawks struck twice in the final 10 minutes to overcome a 1-0 deficit. Mateo Cardona ignited the rally with a penalty kick goal and Jamie Dell notched the game-winner in the 84th minute.

The win in Wilmington snapped a three-game skid for the Seahawks against the Blue Devils, who own a 15-6-1 advantage in the series.

UNCW concludes its three-game road stretch on Saturday with a 7 p.m. start at Hofstra.
