Canes struggle to 28-13 win

It wasn't pretty but a win's a win and Miami held on to defeat Duke Saturday afternoon by the score of 28-13.

Miami was able to take just enough advantage of seven Duke turnovers to hold on to a 28-13 point win.

Jacory Harris completed just 9-of-25 passes in the first half but ended up with over 200 yards and one touchdown, along with one score on the ground.

Damien Berry, once again, ran for over 100 yards and scored a touchdown in the second quarter. He did lose a fumble for the second week in a row, though.

Leonard Hankerson led all receivers with six catches for 80 yards and one touchdown. Travis Benjamin finished the game with three catches for 67 yards.

The Hurricanes held Duke's offense to under 300 yards of offense, had seven turnovers, had nine tackles for loss, three sacks, and had a Micanor Regis interception return for a touchdown.

Sean Spence led all defenders with 12 tackles and true freshman Kelvin Cain, who started in place of Colin McCarthy, finished the game with nine tackles and a forced fumble.

The win pushed Miami's record to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the conference. The team will play host to North Carolina next Saturday night.
