Women’s lacrosse tops No. 17 Eagles

The No. 5 North Carolina women’s lacrosse team thought it had clinched a win when it led 15-7 with three minutes to play against No. 17 Boston College on Saturday, until something struck the team’s players as funny.

	Senior attacker Corey Donohoe couldn’t find the back of the cage in the early going as UNC had to overcome a 3-1 hole early.

Tar Heels claw back from de?cit

With Levy’s 200th win, the Tar Heels have proved they can send a team to the grave even without drawing first blood. “It’s focusing on getting the ball, then being patient on offense, but attacking when it’s there,” Donahoe said. “It’s about making smart decisions on the field and we did that a lot better today.”

	Sophomore Cody Stiles continued his winning ways, picking up his third win on the mound this season for UNC. Stiles pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed only five hits and one earned run with seven strikeouts.

Late-game offense boosts North Carolina

For seven innings North Carolina’s home game against Princeton on Tuesday was a classic pitcher’s duel. Then in the eighth inning, UNC’s highest scoring of the season, the Tar Heels brought home nine runs, trampling the Tigers 11-2.

UNC track teams split for weekend meets

Saturday’s separate meets for North Carolina’s men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams were all about rewriting the record book. The women dominated Chapel Hill’s Kent Taylor Run for the Kids Invitational and took six events while attempting to dash school and national record. While the women enjoyed success in Chapel Hill, UNC coach Dennis Craddock and the top male runners traveled to Annapolis to test their abilities on a banked track.

Defense key for Florida State

Last season, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton molded the strongest defense in the ACC, which compensated for the league’s 10th-ranked offense and earned them third place overall in the ACC. FSU led the ACC in scoring defense with 60.4 points per game and on average 6.3 blocked shots per game in its 2009-10 campaign. But this season the Seminoles will be without the ACC’s leading shot-blocker, Solomon Alabi.

UNC women's soccer defeats Virginia Tech in ACC quarterfinals

CARY, N.C. ­— Twenty-two seconds after the whistle shrilled to begin the ACC Tournament quarterfinal match between first-seeded North Carolina and Virginia Tech, the Tar Heels collected their first goal. Freshman Kealia Ohai’s goal immediately set the tone, and the Tar Heels rolled to a 4-2 victory at WakeMed Soccer Park.

Junior back Meghan Dawson helped the Tar Heel defense hold the Bears to just two shots. Monday marked the seventh shutout for UNC this year.

UNC defense stymies Bears' shots

The 0-0 score of North Carolina women’s field hockey lingered on the scoreboard until late in the second half of the game against California. The undefeated Tar Heels finally netted their only goal against the Golden Bears in the 60th minute of play, which Cal never answered.
