The Wolfpack managed 20 shots, including a very close shot in overtime from sophomore forward Jameese Joseph, but only three tested the Spartans’ keeper.
Not much separated the two sides but a 41st-minute spectacular goal propelled the Wolfpack to victory, the team's second spring season win.
The match was hotly contested despite being a shutout, as the two teams combined for 19 fouls and five yellow cards, but NC State pulled out a 2-0 win.
The Pack will be hoping to change the narrative around its play that was cemented after a winless fall by taking wins against the two nonconference opponents coming up.
