I couldn’t be happier right now,3-0 win over UNC-Charlotte.
UNC didn’t start the year as explosively as it did in 2015, but Dorrance pointed to a number of positives from the opening weekend, especially the performance of his first-year players.
Bridgette Andrzejewski was the first new Tar Heel to impress in UNC’s opening night victory against Central Florida. While the winger was kept off the stat sheet, her ability to beat players one-on-one helped create chances.
The real first-year showcase came Sunday. Andrzejewski showed off her athletic ability. Morgan Goff found space in the box. Madison Schultz delivered pinpoint passes. And Zoe Redei, the only first-year player to start both games on the weekend, scored her first career goal to seal the game.
There were some hiccups, but the group settled in as the games progressed.
