'It has been kind of a perfect season so far': UNC field hockey wins ACC Championship

UNC defeated No. 20 Wake Forest, 7-2, in the ACC Championship game. With that win, the Tar Heels became the first No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament to win the championship since the format expanded in 2014.   “We came out firing again after half,” first-year Erin Matson said. “It is definitely a focus of ours to treat every opponent with respect and play a full 70-minute game as hard as the first minute.”
