Five minutes and 21 seconds.
That's how long it took for Florida State to topple the No. 1 North Carolina women's soccer team on Sunday in the women's soccer ACC Championship game, 3-2. The Tar Heels hadn't allowed more than one goal in a game the entire season, and in just five minutes and 21 seconds, they allowed two.
The first goal punched the Tar Heels in the mouth just a minute and 19 seconds in. A corner kick from LeiLanni Nesbeth knifed through UNC's defense, which inexplicably left three Seminoles effectively uncovered right in front of the goal — all it took was a little tap on the chest from tournament MVP Clara Robbins to draw first blood.
Instead of responding, the Tar Heels stumbled in a daze for several minutes, while the Seminoles attacked. Yet again, it was Robbins with a wide-open shot just outside North Carolina's box on the set-up from Nesbeth, which she promptly fired past UNC goalkeeper Claudia Dickey.
"They came out, they punched us in the face early," UNC head coach Anson Dorrance said. "We were knocked back, and it was very difficult for us to get back in the game in the first half."
