North Carolina's women's field hockey team used
a second-half rally to break a longtime jinx and snap
Old Dominion's 40-game winning streak with a 3
1 upset victory over the top-ranked Monarchs
Saturday at the Astroturf Field.
In raising their record to 6-1, coach Karen Shelton's
third-ranked Tar Heels overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit
with an inspired second-half performance against the
three-time defending NCAA champions, now 8-1. The
surge was highlighted by a ten-minute outburst which
saw UNC rack up three goals.
Sophomore midfielder Judith Jonckheer rifled the
eventual game-winner past the helpless ODU
goalkeeper with 19:30 left in the contest. Following
Louise Hines' missed shot, Jonckheer gathered the
rebound about eight yards from the goal and ripped
it into the right-hand corner of the net, giving the
Tar Heels the lead for good at 2-1. Shelton was
especially impressed with Jonckheer 's shot, labeling
it of "major league" caliber.
Just 2:15 later, North Carolina struck again. Claire
Dougherty found sophomore midfielder Betsy
Gillespie in front of the goal box for UNC's third
goal of the game. The 5-9 native of Washington, D.C.
received Dougherty's pass in front of the goal box
and redirected it into the left corner of the net.
Gillespie's shot ran the score to 3-1 and gave the Tar
Heels some insurance.
North Carolina's heroics were triggered by junior
Maryellen Falcone's goal 7:37 into the second stanza.
Falcone maneuvered down the middle of the field
and pushed a soft, but well placed shot over the left
shoulder of. ODU's fallen goaltender to knot it at
one.: v.. -
The unassisted goal triggered a scoring explosion
that has become a trademark of the Tar Heels.
Jonckheer and Gillespie followed with goals over the
next 10:08, staking UNC to a commanding lead and
leaving the Monarchs (to borrow from a Led Zeppelin
classic) dazed and confused. -
Shelton pointed to Falcone's connection as a key
element in North Carolina's comeback. "After
Maryellen scored, we played with much more
confidence and aggressiveness," Shelton said.
Indeed, prior to Falcone's icebreaker, the Tar Heels
had been a portrait in missed opportunities. According
to Shelton, UNC wasted four or five bona fide scoring
chances in the opening frame. "In the first half, we
just weren't taking advantage of our opportunities,"
Too many missed chances against an opportunistic
team can leave a squad wondering what happened
by halftime. Fortunately for the Tar Heels, they were
still within striking (distance at intermission, blown
opportunities and all
The game remained scoreless until ODU's Jill
Fischer broke the drought just 7:52 before the half.
Fischer's shot was assisted by the Monarch's Joanne
Powers and enabled Old Dominion to carry a 1-0
lead into the second half.
Just as in their 2-0 loss at ODU two weeks ago,
the Tar Heels attained statistical dominance or parity
in every category. UNC outshot the Monarchs 14
12 and matched the visitors' goalkeeper saves with
eight. The differences between this weekend's win and
the failure of a fortnight ago are twofold.
First, the factor of determination was squarely in
the Tar Heels' favor. Having lost the last nine meetings
between the two schools, North Carolina was
determined to stop their 0-for-the-eighties skid. As
Gillespie said, "We knew that we could do it. We
were really riled up for this game."
Secondly, the factor of crowd support had a definite
impact on the play of the Tar Heels. With a vocal
crowd of. approximately 350 in attendance, UNC felt
the home-field advantage.
Now, the Tar Heels must turn their attention toward
Virginia and Tuesday's road game with the Cavaliers.
Although they would seem to be a prime target for
a case of the "we're number one" blues, Shelton thinks
her Tar Heels will avoid the problem of complacency.
"The girls won't allow themselves to have a
letdown," Shelton said. "They've had a taste of what
it's (winning) like, and they want more."
Only time will tell just how big Saturday's win over
the "Dominion Dynasty" will be to the future of North
Carolina field hockey. But, if preliminary indications
are to be believed, the game will be talked about for
years to come as the day UNC field hockey "arrived".

The UNC women's soccer team
pummeled Vanderbilt, Virginia,
Duke and Erskine College by a
combined score of 27-0 this weekend
at Fetzer Field in the Tar Heel
Invitational Soccer Tournament.
In preparation for next week's
meetings with a tough Connecticut
team (the last team to ever beat UNC)
and Massachusetts, coach Anson
Dorrance scheduled teams for the
Invitational which would allow the
Tar Heels to practice their technique
and allow all the members of the team
"We set different goals for these
games," Dorrance said. "It gives
people who don't generally start
valuable playing time."
In the first game on Friday, the
Tar Heels trounced Vanderbilt 9-0 at
Fetzer field. Saturday UNC defeated
Duke 6-0 and then repeated the score
later in the afternoon against Erskine
College. Sundav the Tar Heels also
beat the University of Virginia 6-0.
The UNC team was actually
divided into two teams for the
tournament. Each team consisted of
both starters and reserves, and each
one played as a separate unit. Since
there were no extra players, there
were no substitutions.
"We set some goals and we accomp
lished almost all of them," Dorrance
said. Because Dorrance knew in
advance that his team would dom
inate the competition, he wanted
them to play attractively, to have
strong team play and for the goal
keeper to distribute the ball evenly
to the backfield.
"I didn't have any real shots (to
block)," said goalkeeper Kathleen
OT)ell. "In these types of games I try
to work on my distribution." And
since most of the games were played
in the other half of the field, there
wasnt much for OTDell to do. As she
puts it, "It was a test in

ATLANTA It was hard to believe. Listed as five
point favorites before the game, Georgia Tech absolutely
devastated North Carolina Saturday at Grant Field by
the score of 31-0.
Voices in the North Carolina locker room all echoed
feelings of embarrassment, shock and downright anger.
The reason for this bag of mixed emotions was simple:
Georgia Tech is not that good and North Carolina's not
Some North Carolina writers were saying after the
game that they'd changed their opinions on who the
worst team in the Old North State is.
I guess they were saying the Tar Heels are worse than
N.C. State, Duke, Wake Forest and East Carolina. I'm
sorry, but I beg to differ. '
Granted, North Carolina was bad in the Tech loss. In
fact, they were terrible. It was probably the worst loss in
the Dick Crum era, worse even than last fall's 52-20 blo
wout up at Boston College.
And the Tar Heel players made no excuses.
"They're a good team," fullback Brad Lopp told me
about Georgia Tech. "But we played terrible. It's not all
Offensive tackle Harris Barton, obviously miffed
about his team's performance, displayed an anger that
doesn't come from a man who expected to lose this
press box club
"We got what, 129 yards total offense?" he asked.
"That's embarrassing. I don't think they were as awe
some as they looked. We made a lot of mistakes."
North Carolina made some crucial mistakes early.
Heck, they gave Tech 10 points to start it out. You give
a team with as good a defense as Tech has a 10-point
lead, and you're going to pay. North Carolina doesn't
have the talent LSU did when they recovered from some
early mistakes to win in Chapel Hill.
Physically, the Tar Heels are a good, solid football
team. They're not top 10 material, but they're also not
the pitiful excuse for a team they were Saturday, either.
The problem they had Saturday was best described by
defensive tackle Reuben Davis.
"We were there physically," Davis told me. But his
omission of the the Tar Heels mental presence stood out
like a 31-0 sore thumb.
"They got rolling, and the longer it went, the stronger
they got," Lopp said.
And the weaker North Carolina got.
IH tell you one thing: North Carolina got stung this
week (please excuse the pun) by the Yellow Jackets.
They were humiliated. I don't think they'll be as out to
lunch when Wake Forest comes to town, especially in
light of the Deacons two-point loss to a tough Tennes
see team in Knoxville.

The North Carolina men's soccer
team defeated Coastal Carolina 2-1
Saturday at Fetzer Field in a game in
which the Tar Heels failed to capitalize
on numerous scoring opportunities and
had to sweat it out to the last few
Throughout the last few minutes of
the game, Coastal Carolina threatened
to tie the score. The Tar Heels foiled
two scoring shots in the last 20 seconds
to win their second straight game.
North Carolina scored both its goals
in the opening half. The first goal came
at the 28:42 mark, when Marcus Martin
scored on an assist from Paul Lalor.
Prior to that goal, the Tar Heels' Dave
Smythe, Dino Megaloudis and Tommy
Nicholson had all missed chances to
score. Martin's score was the least likely
of all the shots to 'go in. After Martin
received the ball in front of the goal
from Lalor, Coastal 'Carolina's goalie
Robbie Spicer came out to challenge
him. Martin then floated the ball past
him as he came up.
The Tar Heels' second goal came on
one of the better plays of the game. At

came up with the ball at midfield, raced
down the left sideline and lofted the ball
in front of the Coastal Carolina goal. ,
UNC's Nicholson headed the ball past
Spicer to give the Tar Heels a 2-0
Throughout the first half, the Tar
Heels kept the ball on Coastal Carol
ina's side of the field, and had numerous
chances to score that never materialized.
Coastal Carolina had few chances to
even get a legitimate shot off at the UNC
goal as the Tar Heels played effective
defense and kept the pressure on
Coastal Carolina goalie Spicer, who
had six saves.
"We created a lot of chances," said
UNC coach Anson Dorrance. "We
created chances that we should have
finished and we did not."
Dorrance said he could not remember
a time when his team had created so
many scoring chances that did not result
in goals. UNC outshot Coastal Carolina
, 23-5 in the win that raised its record
to 7-4 on the year. Coastal Carolina
Nicholson said the team was not
playing up to its potential. "We are
having trouble finishing," he said. "We
can play a lot better."
The game was marked by short
tempers on both sides. "I think the fights
are due to frustration because we have
the talent (to do better)," Nicholson
In the second half, Coastal Carolina
began to get more shots on the UNC
goal. The action went back and forth
as both teams missed on chances to
score. At the 61:15 mark, Coastal
Carolina's Claud Huggins scored on an
assist from Sigurdur (who knows how
to pronounce it) Sveinbjornsson to
make a game of it.
Because of their inability to score, the
Tar Heels were forced to sweat the game
out until the final whistle.
Next Wednesday, the Tar Heels take
on a strong UNC-Greensboro team, and
Dorrance said a better effort is a
necessity. "We can't play like this and
expect to win (against UNC G),"
