After being shut out by Southern California last weekend, the North Carolina women’s soccer team's scoring drought continued against N.C. State at home Friday night.
Despite many scoring opportunities, the No. 7 Tar Heels lost to the Wolfpack, 1-0, for their second-straight loss of the season.
Through much of the game, several scoring opportunities for both sides resulted in neither team being able to find the back of the net. Headed into half time, both teams were even at 0-0.
But in the 66th minute that all changed. Capitalizing on a defensive miscommunication between several North Carolina defensive players, N.C. State was able to stun the home team with a goal that proved to be the game-winner.
After getting the wind knocked out of them, the North Carolina offense continued to put pressure on the N.C. State defense for the rest of the match, but to no avail. The team took eight shots on goal in the game and had several other missed opportunities.
