ROSWELL, GA — The No. 15 North Carolina men’s lacrosse team took on the Mercer Bears in its season opener Saturday.  The game was played at Centennial High School in Atlanta, Ga., on the same field where UNC first-year attackman Nicky Solomon played the entirety of his high school career.  Solomon scored his first two goals as a Tar Heel in his return home as UNC wiped out Mercer, 20-9.

UNC men's lacrosse's season on final leg after overtime loss, 13-12, No. 6 Syracuse

The North Carolina men’s lacrosse team was on the verge of a much-needed win on Saturday, but instead, it suffered another stinging defeat — this time, a 13-12 overtime loss at No. 6 Syracuse.  The Tar Heels (6-7, 0-3 ACC) held a three-goal advantage with just under four and half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but they allowed the Orange (7-4, 4-0 ACC) to score three consecutive goals to force a sudden-death overtime, which they later won on a goal by Brendan Bomberry.
