Bolowich may have identified some potential solutions this weekend in Mike Gell and David Testo.
Gell scored two goals and tallied two assists, and Testo added a pair of goals and another assist to help the Tar Heels outscore East Carolina and Appalachian State 11-1 this weekend.
While Bolowich was upset with the offensive flow of UNC's 3-0 win against ASU on Monday, he was pleased by the efforts of Testo, a junior transfer from South Carolina.
"I like David Testo," said Bolowich, who also coached Testo on a local Olympic development team. "He plays as an attacking midfielder, which is a good position for him. He's a strong player; he can hold the ball off.
"I think we didn't play through him as much today as we should have, perhaps. I think we should have used Testo a little bit more today, particularly in the first half."
After a quiet first half, Testo came alive after the intermission. He eventually scored the Tar Heels' second goal in the game's 47th minute off a pass from Gell.
Testo had other chances to find the back of the net later in the match but missed two goal-scoring opportunities from within the six-yard goal box.
Gell said Testo's play-making ability will fit in well with a UNC team that will try to play through its midfield.
"He's a great player," Gell said. "He holds the ball well. He's got great touch. He's great for us forwards, who can get passes from him and score goals."
