Even with strong performances from Barket, Wimmer, Duke wrestling struggles in Keystone Classic

(11/20/23 5:08am)

Duke had a tournament to forget at the 2023 Keystone Classic in Philadelphia, finishing ninth overall out of the 10 teams competing. After earning its first two wins of the season against Cleveland State and Kent State, the team struggled to replicate last week’s strong showing during Sunday’s tournament.

Something is rotten in the state of Oklahoma. At least, that’s true in Martin Scorsese’s new film, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” which examines a conspiracy of betrayal and murder—perpetrated during the sunset of the Wild West against the Osage Native Americans of Oklahoma—that is as grotesque and far-reaching as that in Hamlet’s Denmark.

Duke wants to escape what has been a rollercoaster of a game against Pittsburgh with at least a tie, but the Panthers have brought the ball downfield and are playing it out of the corner. The low cross comes in and rests at the feet of forward Louis Sahmkow, who fires on net. Julian Eyestone, the Blue Devils’ goalkeeper, splays out to make an impressive quick save.
