The No. 1 North Carolina women’s lacrosse team marked its second game of the season with a 24-3 win at High Point University on Friday evening.
It took the Tar Heels just 33 seconds to take the lead, when an assist by senior Katie Hoeg set up junior Ally Mastroianni for the first goal of the game. UNC then scored five goals in the next 10 minutes, with two from Hoeg, two from junior Jamie Ortega, and one from sophomore Tayler Warehime.
The Panthers’ first goal wouldn’t come until there was 9:18 remaining in the first period, at which point North Carolina had already amassed 11 goals. The Tar Heels would respond to High Point’s goal with four more goals in the period to extend their advantage to 15-1 heading into the second period.
The second period was pretty much the same story for UNC. It was prolific on offense and stingy in defense, scoring nine goals and only allowing six shots on goal from its opponent.
