The No. 1 North Carolina women’s soccer team looked to be well on its way to continuing its undefeated season.
The Tar Heels looked dominant to start the match against Louisville on Thursday, scoring the first goal of the game on a strike from sophomore Alex Kimball. But her goal was the lone score of the night for UNC, as North Carolina loss 2-1 in overtime.
Kimball’s first point as a Tar Heel came against Pittsburgh in 2014 — a game that resulted in a 2-1 win. In a deadlocked contest, Kimball assisted on a goal by junior Emily Bruder.
Now, a season later, Kimball was the one on the receiving end, as Bruder assisted Kimball on her goal in the 35th minute. The score marked Kimball's third goal of the season.
While the midfielder scored to put the Tar Heels (11-1-1, 4-1-0 ACC) up, the rest of her team couldn’t. UNC failed to score in the second half, and Kimball’s goal was matched by a goal by Louisville (7-5-1, 3-2-0 ACC) in the 49th minute to send the game into overtime.
