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.
When was it decided?
The tone of the game was set in the fifth minute with the first North Carolina goal of the night, as Evert opened scoring off a corner when she slotted the ball into the bottom left corner. The onslaught continued, as the Tar Heels added five more goals throughout the game.
Why does it matter?
Games against nonconference opponents typically tend to favor the Tar Heels, giving the squad an easier matchup that allows for some fun and less pressure. But with the team’s lengthy winning record, it seems the Tar Heels aren’t succumbing to pressure often. Spirits will be high going into a schedule that includes three conference opponents in the next four games.
Where do they play next?
The Tar Heels will take on Virginia in Chapel Hill at 6 p.m. on Friday.
