Chris Huston's goal with 14:25 left
snapped a 1-1 tie and put the Tar
Heels in front for good. Wendy
Gebauer had given UNC a 1-0 lead
early in the second half before the
Knights came back to tie.
Of all the teams UNC has faced
this year, Central Florida has pro
vided the most resistance. On Oct.
9 in Orlando, the Knights dominated
much of the game but ended up
playing UNC to a scoreless tie.
Sunday's match was another story,
though. North Carolina dominated
most of the first half, consistently
keeping the ball in Central Florida's
half of the field. UNC often moved
into the Knights' penalty box but
couldn't seem to capitalize on any of
"It was another typical UCF-UNC
game," Knights coach Bill Barker

the ACC champion Tar Heels to
18-2 with a 2-1 win in the NCAA
regional final Sunday afternoon.

Second-ranked North Carolina

of them toughed it out for the final,
which was played at Foreman
Sunday's game marked the third
meeting of the year between the
two powerhouses, with the teams
splitting the first two games.
Old Dominion's winning goal
came with 17:59 left in the game
on a penalty stroke from Marije
Jurriens. Jurriens, a freshman
from Utrecht, Holland, flipped the

"Shoot, look who they are. They've
been in the playoffs forever, so I think
that experience and the fact that they
had five or six seniors in there really
helped them out a lot."
UNC's biggest opportunity came
with under two minutes left in the
first half. Gebauer served a soft cross
to Shannon Higgins, who was waiting
right in front of the goal. Knights
goalie Karen Richter was in hot
pursuit of Gebauer, so Higgins had
an open net in front of her, yet headed
the ball wide to the left.
"Scoring is really difficult in this
game," UNC coach Anson Dorrance
said. "There are so few natural
finishers. Most people, when you get
the ball in the box, are under pressure,
and the odds are you're going to kick
it over the top. Or panic. In that
environment that's what happens."
UNC's first goal finally came 53:45
into the game. Forward Julie Guar
notta streaked down the right side of
the field, accompanied by two defend
ers, but somehow managed to center
the ball beautifully to Gebauer. The
5-foot-7 senior then headed a shot
past Richter's outstretched fingers for
her ninth goal of the year, matching
Higgins for the team lead.
UCF was quick to tie the game,
however. At the 62:20 mark, fresh
man Jennifer Blackwell managed to
work her way behind the defense and
chipped a high bouncer over charging
goalie Meridee Proost.
"The decision she had to make was
either to come or stay, and when you
come you have to get it," Dorrance
said. "In that situation I think she

Evelien Spee and into the net. The
penalty stroke was a result of a
courageous yet illegal play by
senior co-captain Tracey Yurgin.
With her leg, Yurgin deflected a
bullet from ODU's Maaike
Old Dominion's first score came
with 14:26 remaining in the first
half when Spee was forced to
confront ODU's Lynn Hoinsky.
Hoinsky took the ball nearly to
the endline and then crossed it
back into the center of the goal
area. Senior Jill Fisher was there
to collect the ball and slam it into
the net to tally just the 12th goal

came late. I thought it was a really
good attack. We were obviously flat
in the back."
One of the highlights in the game
for North Carolina was the pheno
menal play of back Carla Werden.
Werden was impressively cool under
attack and mixed power with preci
sion in clearing numerous threats
"She's brilliant," Dorrance
beamed. "She organizes our defense.
She's one of the top central defenders
in the world. Her technical ability and
concentration made a big difference
The game-winning goal, at the
75:35 mark, provided a boost that was
even bigger than was obvious at the
time. Following yet another clear by
Werden, the ball found its way to
freshman forward Huston, who
passed to Gebauer. As usual, she was
immediately surrounded by a flock
of defenders, so she crossed the ball
back to Huston, who put in the first
goal of her collegiate career.
"We were teasing Chris that she
was going to be the first forward in
UNC history to go an entire season
without scoring," Dorrance said. "But
she's lifted that monkey off her back.
She came right over to the sidelines
and said that she scored that for us.
It was a great goal and certainly
timely. If the players want to wait
until the NCAA's to score all their
goals, it's fine with me."

two wins, in the ACC tournament

Wake to ward off the Doubting

head coach Walt Chyzowich said. "In
the first half, we were very disorgan

The Tar Heels pressured Wake
early, but many of the shots were wide

The Virginia Cavaliers did what the
UNC basketball team could not
Saturday namely, fastbreak their
way to a victory over a slower
opponent. But the Wahoos' win came
on grass, not hardwood.
Behind the golden touch of Shawn
Moore, the Cavs ran out to a 21 -point
bulge in the first 10 minutes of the
game at Kenan Stadium, withstood
a persistent second-half Tar Heel
comeback and got a 28-yard Mark
Inderlied field goal with 6:11 to go
to win 27-24 in the Tar Heels' last
home game of the year.
UNC fell to 1-9 with the loss, 1
4 in the ACC. Virginia, which could
play for a bowl bid next week against
Maryland, improved to 6-4, 4-2.
"There are very few teams in
America who can spot somebody 21
points in the first quarter and have
a chance to come back and win the
ball game," UNC coach Mack Brown
said. "You take that quarter out, we
win the ballgame 24-6. It's unbeliev

For Megaloudis, the assist gave
him 34 for his career and made him
the career assist leader in UNC men's
soccer history. The record was
previously held by former North
Carolina star Billy Hartman.
The second half was played much
differently than the first. UNC
seemed content with a two-goal lead
and proceeded to play the final 45
minutes between the penalty boxes.

Although a senior, Donald Cogs

for the first time in two years for
UNC. He's been having some trouble
adjusting to the quick-decision type
of play the striker position requires.
Cogsville was held scoreless on the
afternoon but did set up many plays
for his partner, Tinkham, who also
is a new forward after having played
most of the season at midfield.
As the second half progressed,
Cogsville became more and more
desperate to beat Deacon sweeper
Todd Renner, who held the 6-foot-
3 Cogsville in check with his own 6-
4 height and aggressive play.
"He was playing like a man pos

their own 44. Moore got things going
when he stepped up to the line of

on the UNC 44, thanks to a 24-yard

After another rollout pass, this one
to speedster John Ford, gulped in 21
more yards of UNC turf, Moore
called his own number two plays
later, optioned right and dashed
through the sleepy UNC defense for
an 1 8-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
But Moore hardly had time to get
a cup of water before racking up some
more points. That's because UNC
fullback James Thompson fumbled
the ensuing kickoff and Winston
Salem native Tony Covington reco
vered at the UNC 38.

But UNC's inability to score in the
second half did not affect the play
of the Tar Heels young backfield.
"Rich (Wachsman) and the rest of
the backs were leading the game really
well," Dorrance said. "We really gave
them only one scoring opportunity
the whole afternoon.
"In terms of team shape, we had
a good team discipline. We didn't get
spread out too far."
