During the past four years, in which
the UNC women's soccer team has not
lost a game, the squad has gained some
heavy experience in a lot of things.
One aspect of that knowledge,
though, stands out the most: winning.
Lots of winning.
This weekend in the ACC tourna

pattern, knocking off Duke 4-0 in the
semifinals and rival N.C. State 5-3 in

COLLEGE PARK, Md. It's get
ting to the point where you can just fill
in the blanks.
.;.The Tar Heels followed a familiar
script Saturday as they dropped their
seventh consecutive game in a 38-0
pasting at the hands of the Maryland
Terrapins, who improved to 3-6, 2-5 in
the ACC. The Tar Heels fell to 1-7, 0
5 in conference play.
Just change the words in parentheses
each week, and you'll see the bleak
situation that has become common
place for UNC head coach Mack B rown.
An (anemic) UNC offense, which
, turned the ball over (six) times against
an aggressive (Maryland) defense, left
the (overworked) Tar Heel defense with
their backs to (their own goal line)
throughout a (warm and sunny) after
noon before (27,441) curious onlook
ers at (Byrd Stadium).
The turning point in this one if
there can be a turning' point in a 38
point loss came just before halftime
with the Tar Heels trailing 14-0.
UNC quarterback Chuckie Bumette,
who started in place of the injured
Jonathan Hall, diiccied the Tar Heels
from the UNC 27 yard line to the
Maryland 13, where the drive tempo
rarily stalled. But a Clint Gwaltney 30
yard field goal attempt turned into a
fake with Torin Dom taking holder
Scott McAlister's pitch on an end
around for 1 1 yards that set Bumette
up with a first-and-goal at the two.
In the finals, however, North Caro
lina got some good looks at a couple of
new things that they had to learn about
Revenge: When you don't ever
lose, there's not much to be vengeful
about, now is there?
Sunday's final was a rematch of last
year's 1-1 final. The game moved into
a shootout, in which the Wolfpack
prevailed, taking the ACC trophy with
Suspense: If no one ever scores
against you, your games can't be very
exciting, can they?
But four consecutive running plays,
including two fumbled exchanges by
Burnette, netted minus four yards, and
the Tar Heels never fully recovered.
"It took a lot of momentum out of
us," Brown said. "It would have taken
momentum out of an older, aggressive
football team. We're a very young,
inexperienced football team that needed
something good to happen."
B ut things got even worse for the Tar
Heels in the opening minutes of the
On UNC's first second-half posses
sion, the Terrapins blitzed Burnette on
a third-and-long play and picked off his
ensuing pass at the UNC 26. Maryland
free safety Mike Thomas snatched
Burnette's offering and raced down the
left sideline unscathed for a touchdown
to give the Terps a three-touchdown
The Tar Heels' next two possessions
ended in a Burnette interception and
fumble, and UNC's hopes for a come
back were shifted into the hands of
sophomore signal-caller Todd Burnett,
who was previously slated for a red
shirt year in 1989. Burnette, a fresh
man, ended his day with 65 yards on 7-of-14
passing and two interceptions
before turning over the reins to Burnett.
Brown defended the decision to use
Burnett, who has now utilized two years
of eligibility (he started five games in
1988) because of Saturday's action.
"Chuckie had three turnovers in a
row, and we felt like we have to find a
quarterback to lead our football team,"
MaDytad foir ACC tittle
This season, the Tar Heels have
outscored their opponents 81-9. Thus
the Wolfpack' s trio of tallies is half as
many goals as the stingy UNC defense
has allowed all season.
Being behind: One way to never
lose is to never fall behind, right?
Get this since the 1 985 champion
ship game, the last game UNC lost,
North Carolina has trailed three times:
against George Mason for 5: 10 in 1 986,
in last year's ACC final for 8:05, and
The Wolfpack's Charmaine Hooper,
the leading scorer in the ACC with 23
Brown said. "So, we needed to put
Todd in there and look and see what we
can do to try to stir something up the
next (three) weeks and going into spring
But the elder Burnett found no more
success than his sound-alike namesake,
finishing the day with three intercep
tions in an 8-for-16, 77-yard aerial ef
fort. On the Maryland side, two plays made
up the bulk of quarterback Neil
O'Donnell's passing yardage. The first,
a 52-yard bomb to wideout Barry
Johnson, set up a four-yard touchdown
run by fullback Dennis Spinelli. The
second, a 54-yard strike to tight end
David Carr, took advantage of a busted
coverage in the UNC secondary and
gave the Terps a 14-0 lead at intermis
sion. The second half featured UNC's
inability to throw the ball and
Maryland's ability to run it.
Senior tailback Ricky Johnson led
the way for the Terps with 95 yards on
the ground, including a 21 -yard touch
down run on the first play of the fourth
quarter to put Maryland up by a 3 1 -0
score. Senior fullback James Matthews
closed out the scoring with a 14-yard
jaunt late in the final stanza.
Maryland amassed 217 yards on 50
rushing attempts on the afternoon, while
the Tar Heels could manage only 77
yards on 36 carries (2. 1 yards per rush)
against a Terrapin defense that dared
them to throw the football.

mark when she powered a shot through
goalie Lori Walker's hands from 23
yards out. Chris Lilly tied it up at
11:13, 1:14 later, and the team was
never behind again.
With all of these new things to over
come, how did UNC win so handily?
That's how midfielder Shannon
Higgins described it.
Coach Anson Dorrance, forever the
orator, put it in a few more words.

MVP Staley shines
with quintet of goals
By NEIL AMATO
DURHAM It was business as
usual for the North Carolina field
The Tar Heels lambasted Maryland
8-1 to capture its seventh-straight At
lantic Coast Conference Tournament
title Sunday at Duke.
Senior Kathy Staley netted five goals,
including four in the first half, to help
second-ranked UNC up its record to
17-2. The Terps, ranked 1 1th in the
country, fell to 11-6-1. The Tar Heels
gained a spot in the final by defeating
Duke 3-0 on Saturday.
Freshman Imke Lempers also scored
twice, and sophomore Mary Hartzell
tallied her first collegiate goal to help
the Tar Heels to their sixth consecutive
Staley, a native of Endicott, N.Y.,
tied the UNC record for goals in a game
and moved to within two of breaking
the all-time UNC single-season record
of 27. She also broke the ACC single
season individual goal record.
UNC head coach Karen Shelton was
pleased with the center-forward's per
formance. "She played an exceptional game,"
Shelton said of Staley, the tournament
MVP. "The other kids got her the ball
and she knew what to do with it."
Several of Staley' s teammates also
made the all-tournament team for that
very reason. Midfielders Leslie Lyness,
Lempers and Laurel Hershey, plus
forward Peggy Anthon and goalkeeper
Evelien Spee, received awards for their
Shelton, who garnered ACC Coach
of the Year honors, said, "We took
home a lot of hardware today."
UNC quickly quieted the hyped-up
surge in the second half; I think every
one was pouring their heart and soul
into it. I think everyone rose to the
For the first time in a while, every
one had to.
After Lilly's goal knotted the game
at one, North Carol ina attacked NCSU ' s
net with a fury. Chances were created,
but none could break through the sor

when Julie Guarnotta popped in a rare
left-footed goal from 14 yards out.

Anthon hit in to Lyness, who stopped
the ball for Lempers. The Netherlands
native passed right to Staley, who nailed
one to the left of Terp goalie Andrea
Closkey for a goal.
Less than three minutes later, Staley
put in her second of the day. After a
commotion in front of the net, where
Staley shot once and sophomore Nancy
Lang attempted, Staley placed the ball
past Closkey at the 7:12 mark.
Maryland head coach Missy Meharg
said Staley was definitely a force to be
reckoned with. "Kathy Staley is one of
the most dangerous players (in the
country) because she doesn't play with
the same intensity all the time. Some
times she just hangs real low and it
lures the defenders into a sedentary

trick and again with 2:24 remaining to
make it 4-0 at the intermission.
Staley's fifth goal came just more
than five minutes into the second half
when she scored on a penalty corner.
Anthon hit to Lyness for the stick-stop,
and Staley deposited a liner into the left
side of the goal. Lyness, who also as
sisted on one of Lempers' scores, upped
her career assist total to 32, which puts
her six away from the UNC all-time
Fifteen minutes later, Hartzell put
UNC up 6-0. The second-year player

wormburner. Walker masterfully de
flected it but was forced into the spec
tator role to watch Alana Craft bury it in
the back of the net.
In the second half UNC began to
settle down. Lilly picked up her second
goal in usual fashion, maneuvering
through the backfield and dropping in a
rocket shot from 23 yards out. The goal
proved to be the game winner.
