The No. 3 North Carolina field hockey team served Davidson College a tough 6-0 loss Tuesday, pushing the Tar Heels’ winning streak to five games.
UNC's five first-half goals were too much for Davidson (2-10), a team that has been struggling this season. With six different UNC players picking up a point, the Tar Heels (10-2, 2-1 ACC) showed their dominance as Davidson was unable to keep up or break through.
Who stood out?
Gab Major led the charge with three goals, though offense was also spread, as three other Tar Heels picked up goals.
Major’s third goal was a reverse shot that ricocheted into the net off the crossbar, giving the forward both a hat trick and a goal that will likely be featured in highlight reels. The junior forward is now tied for second on the team with 16 points, behind Lauren Moyer.
Like other games, Shannon Johnson and Alex Halpin split time in net. They both impressed, denying Davidson the opportunity to add a tally to the scoreboard. Both members of the dynamic duo have maintained a low goals against average this season — under 1.50.
