Despite rainfall and relocation, the North Carolina women’s soccer team wouldn’t let the game slip away.
What was initially scheduled as a Friday night showdown became an afternoon slip-and-slide for UNC and Boston College. Because of poor field conditions and adverse weather, the Tar Heels' second ACC home game was moved off campus to Cedar Falls Park.
But the No. 1 Tar Heels weren’t bothered by ceaseless wind and downpour on their way to a 2-0 victory over the Eagles.
The UNC attack was sharp to start the game, stringing together passes seamlessly and raining shots at the Boston College goal.
After a display of tiki-taka offense, redshirt senior Alexa Newfield capped off a well-designed play by tucking a goal into the back of the net in the 16th minute to hand North Carolina a 1-0 lead.
