In its regular season finale game, the No. 3 UNC women’s soccer team rallied past Miami to secure its fifth win in a row, advancing to 16-1-1 overall and 9-0-1 in the ACC to finish off the regular season. After ending the Hurricanes’ season, the Tar Heels will move on to host an ACC Tournament quarterfinal.
In a comeback win, the Tar Heels were down 2-1 early in the second half but scored two goals late in the second half to grab the victory — the game winner coming from sophomore Brianna Pinto with just over six minutes left to play in the game.
UNC took the lead just over 18 minutes into the game. Sophomore Rachel Jones took advantage of a Miami turnover and got the Tar Heels on the board first off an assist by first-year Isabel Cox, notching Jones her third goals of the season and Cox’s third assist of the season. Jones shot high in the upper right side for a one-goal lead that beat Miami goalkeeper Tyler Speaks.
Miami tied it up with about three minutes left in the first half. The Hurricane's Tia Dupont beat UNC goalkeeper Marz Josephson with a shot from the right side of the goal to find the back of the net right in the left side.
