The North Carolina women’s soccer team was defeated by Notre Dame, 1-0, on Friday night at Alumni Stadium.
In their first game since Coach Anson Dorrance's 800th win, the No. 11 Tar Heels (8-3-3, 3-2-3 ACC) were hoping to extend their five-game unbeaten streak in its match with the No. 20 Fighting Irish (10-2-3, 5-1-1 ACC).
It looked promising early, as UNC outshot Notre Dame 8-6 and recorded eight corner kicks.
But in the 57th minute, first-year forward Jennifer Westendorf scored the first and only goal for the Fighting Irish.
Despite a handful of attempts, North Carolina was unable to even the score in the remaining minutes.
