; As the North Carolina football team
heads to Lexington, Ky., today for a
Saturday matchup with the Kentucky
Wildcats, it has many of the same
questions of a week ago.
Can the defensive front stop the run?
How will the reconstructed secondary
respond? How do you win with five
Of course, the Tar Heels opened
their season against VMI with a bang,
pummeling the Keydets, 49-7, and
beginning to answer many of the ques
tions that plagued head coach Mack
Brown during the 1989 offseason.

swarmed. Everybody played. Every

Sometimes you have to wonder if

plays 1 1 players at a time. It s true
that the Tar Heels have the best start
ling team and the best bench in the
nation. But the only way to control a
.game the way they do is to put 15
players on the field at a time, right?
North Carolina gave another les

day at Finley Field, beating the
Radford Highlanders, 5-0, while us

all-important matchup against the

a practice drill with three or four
players going against one defender

The only concern at the start of the
game was how the UNC backfield
would respond to the loss of senior

played all the games this year at stop

"We've got to get a lot tighter in
the back, and that's happening," head
coach Anson Dorrance said "We've
just lost Hyatt, so we had to recon

The newly reconstructed defense,
headed by senior co-captain Carla
Werden and junior goalkeeper Mer
ridee Proost, held the Highlanders to
just two shots, both in the second half.

But in week two, it's back to reality,
back to the same basic questions
except in more difficult circumstances.
And Brown knows it. "As a staff and
a team and I'm sure some of our fans
are excited over Saturday (the VMI
win) means we've taken a positive step
forward," he said. "But that doesn't
mean we're near where we need to be in
order to compete week-in and week
out in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"We were not tested by a balanced
football team. VMI was a running foot
ball team. That enabled our guys to turn
loose and chase the ball and they did a
good job of that."
On Saturday, the Wildcats will offer
quite a different arrangement.

Goalkeepers Proost and sophomore
Lori Walker collected one save each
during the game.
UNC's first goal came 16 minutes
into the game when sophomore
Louellen Poore took a cross from
freshman Kristine Lilly and scored
from three yards out.
Ten minutes later, senior Julie
Guamotta seemed to have given the
Tar Heels their second goal, but a
Radford fullback grabbed the ball and
pulled it away from the open goal.
Shannon Higgins put in the resulting
penalty kick to give UNC a 2-0 lead.
Higgins struck again just two min
utes from the end of the half with a
shot from the top of the penalty box to
put UNC up, 3-0.
Lilly, who shares the team scoring
lead with Higgins at seven tallies
apiece, scored both of her goals in the
The first came off a picture-perfect
three-on-two break. Freshman
Sarina Wiegman drew out the goalie
and sent a cross that Lilly put in the
back of the open goal.
Lilly closed out the scoring with a
volley from the top of the box that the
Radford keeper could only look at as
it sailed past her.
Despite the 5-0 cushion, some key
UNC players, like Higgins, played
the entire game. "We've still got to be
ready for the (State) game," Higgins
said. "And he (Dorrance) just wanted
to keep a couple of the central people

The North Carolina field hockey team
preserved its perfect 3-0 record Thurs
day night, easily defeating Radford,
11-0, at AstroTurf Field.
Senior Kathy Staley, junior Peggy
Anthon and freshman Imke Lempers
led the Tar Heel offense, which poured
in eight second half goals. Staley, who
earned co-ACC Player of the Week
honors, scored four goals and added an
assist. Lempers also had a hat trick and
Anthon scored three points with two
goals and an assist.
For the 70 minutes of regulation,
Radford sputtered both offensively and
defensively. The Highlanders, whose
record dropped to 2-1, managed just
one shot, and that in the final minute of
play, while they allowed UNC 47 shots.
North Carolina controlled play
thoughout but had trouble early on with
a stubborn Radford defense. The High
landers were stifling the UNC penalty
corners, but at the 16:34 mark, Staley
tipped Laurel Hershey's shot past goal
tender Kathy Mayo to open the scoring.
"We started off slowly and that's
been our trend in our games so far,"
head coach Karen Shelton said. "It
seemed like we put an awful lot of
pressure on them early and we couldn't
get the ball in. We're concerned with
our (penalty) corner execution but not
so concerned because we've spent a lot
of time really focusing on defense and
"(Our penalty corner play) will get
better, it's just a matter of practice."
Radford continued to diffuse UNC
scoring opportunities until Lempers

"It feels to good to know I remember
how to put the ball in the goal," Staley
said. "I've been playing midfield for
the last three years, so it feels great to
still do it."
In fact, Staley's night could have
been more spectacular. In the first half,
two Staley scores off penatly corners
were disallowed due to violations.
Said Shelton: "She's playing very
well. She is a strong player, and it looks
like I should have had her at center
forward a little earlier. She's become
accustomed there after playing
midfield; she's very happy there and
obviously very effective."
However, despite Staley's perform

totally pleased with the team'-s effort.

with our defensive intensity," she said.

Creek, N.C. will get their first taste
of college golf this weekend, starting at
the number two and three spots, respec

Junior Amber Marsh, of Jamestown,
N.C, is slated to play in the top spot for
UNC and is one of the few veterans on
a very inexperienced squad.
"We're going to be a very, very
young team," Gunnells said. "The fresh
men are going to be good for the sopho
mores and juniors, because they are
good players and they'll give (the older
players) some competition and sup

should prove especially challenging.
The 16 teams involved must contend
with very difficult conditions on Finley

Leslie Lyness charges upfield
along with strong teams from Ken

With Marsh, Byham and Wood at
the top three spots, this year's Tar Heel
squad will have an unusually high
number of in-state players. Last year,
Marsh was the only native North Caro
linian on the team.
"I've got three freshmen from North
Carolina (Byham, Wood and Amanda
Bailey of Wilson)," Gunnells said. "This
is the best group of junior golfers that
has come out the state in a while. I
always recruit in-state girls first. If I
can get them, then I do. But you go for
the best golfer wherever she's from."
In addition to the three in-state fresh
men, Gunnells brought in Justine
Richards, of Weston, Mass., and
Meredith Quimby, of Clinton, Iowa.
Said Gunnells, comparing this year's
freshman class to that of Peterson and
Andrews, "They're just as talented.
They just haven't had the experience.
They're young, but talent-wise I'd say
they're ahead of that group in their
