Sunday 's final-eight match could not
be described as good for the UNC
women's soccer team. It wasn't even
great. It was the best ever. A master
piece. Art, not sport.
The Tar Heels stunned, crushed,
stamped, plowed, crunched and
munched the University of Hartford, 9
0, check that, 9-0, on Sunday at Finley
Field. For the ninth straight year the
team advances to the Final Four of the
NCAA Tournament and will clash with
N.C. State next weekend to compete
for a berth in the championship match.
UNC's nine goals represented a team
record for NCAA matches. It was also
believed to be the all-time collegiate
The Tar Heels opened the scoring
quickly, stressing from the outset that
this one would be no contest.
Forward Mia Hamm scored the
game-winner just 41 seconds into the
match. Midfielder Tracy Bates drove
through the middle of a shocked Hawk
defense and nudged the ball to Hamm,
who poked it into the right side of the
strings from four yards out.
The Hartford defense looked disap
pointed. Little did they know. . .
"I don't think soccer can be played
any better than that," UNC head coach
Anson Dorrance said. 'That's about as
well as we can ever expect our team to
play. We always talk about trying to
play the ideal game; I think the people
who came here today saw it."
Sunday' match marked the antici
pated return of Bates, an AU-American
performer in her second and third years
in the program, whose injuries pre
vented her from any substantial amount
of playing time in the past two years.
Bates made an immediate impact with
her assist on the game-winner, but also
made a visible impact with her leader
ship and spark on the field.
"I can't even tell you how good it
feels," Bates said. "It was awesome. I
wasn't sure if I was going to be able to
play or not. It was wonderful."
Though it is hard to imagine a team
going 22-0-1 over the course of a sea
son and then finally coming together in
the last week of the year, North Caro
lina did it on Sunday.

Sooth Carolina takes advantage of Tair Heel
ninth straight defeat

The North Carolina defense gave up
11 points Saturday afternoon against
South Carolina, and the UNC offense
. The Tar Heels outgained their South
ern counterparts, limited them to five
completed passes, contained their top
running back, and turned the ball over
only one time.
And they still lost.
So goes a season of frustration for
UNC head coach Mack Brown, who
watched his squad turn a potential upset
into a 27-20 setback with a series of
mishaps that the Gamecocks accepted
with open arms in upping their record
to 6-3-1 on the season. The Tar Heels
dropped to 1-9.
A Kenan Stadium crowd of 44,200
looked on with hopeful curiosity (soon
to be vicious belligerence) as the Tar
Heels played inspired football en route
to a 13-12 halftime lead.
But two big fourth-quarter plays were
enough to unravel the Tar Heels, Brown
and just about everyone else in Caro
On a third-and-six play from the
Gamecocks' 45 yard line, USC quar
terback Dickie DeMasi threw long for
wide receiver Carl Piatt, with UNC's
Torin Dorn covering.
Bedlam ensued. The ball fell un
touched, and the two officials closest to
the play signaled an incompletion. But

Hartford trips up UNC here, but
By DOUG HOOGERVORST
The North Carolina volleyball team,
whose early season play was character
ized by tremendous inconsistency,
ended its regular season by returning to
that style of play. UNC let its Friday
match with Florida slip away in five
games (11-15, 15-1, 15-11, 15-17, 15
12) and trounced Georgetown in three
straight games on Saturday (15-3, 15

North Carolina head coach Peggy

last four competitions due to an illness
in the family, returned to her spot as
head honcho for the first time in four
somewhere between the ball and Sec
tion 1 8, Row Z of Kenan Stadium at the
time called interference on Dorn,
resulting in a 15-yard penalty and a
USC first down. Brown's resulting
sideline antics cost the Tar Heels 15
more yards for unsportsmanlike con
duct, and a shower of blue souvenir
cups poured down from behind Kenan's
west end zone.
Two plays later, USC's Harold Green
raced around left end for a 19-yard
touchdown run. After a successful two
point conversion in the Land of the
Blue Cup, the Gamecocks led 20-13.
"I thought there were two guys close
to the play, and the guy standing next to
me made the (interference) call," Brown
said. "That's what I found question

No, that came two plays later, when
USC defensive back Scott Windsor
returned a Chuckie Burnette offering
60 yards for a touchdown. On the play,
Burnette was hit as he threw, and the
Tar Heels missed several tackles as the
Gamecocks' captain rambled down the
left sideline to put USC up and away at

should not be intercepted. But the pro

On Senior Night in Carmichael
Auditorium, North Carolina fell victim
to the dreaded lack of discipline against
the defensive-minded Gators. Florida's
tremendous defense entangled the two
in a two-and-a-half hour marathon,
which could have ended much sooner.
Bradley-Doppes said: "Florida
played some great defense. That's the
strength of their team.
"I think we got frustrated because
they kept so many balls in play, and the
frustration affected our defensive play."
The Tar Heels led the Gators two
games to one and came back from a 13
6 deficit in game four, to get to match
point 15-14. However, then the Tar
Heels stumped themselves.
The Tar Heels' Liz Berg was whistled
for a lifting violation to side out, and

By NEIL AMATO
BOSTON The Northeastern
University field hockey team put up a
major roadblock in UNC's route to the
NCAA Final Four.
The No. 2 Tar Heels were dogged for
a while by the Huskies on Sunday, but
in the end North Carolina came away
with a 2-1 win in the NCAA Tourna
Northeastern gained a spot in the
quarterfinal by defeating New Hamp
shire, 2-1, on Saturday.
UNC, in its first come-from-behind
victory of the season, got goals from
freshman Imke Lempers and junior
Laurel Hershey to qualify for next
weekend's Final Four in Springfield,
On Nov. 1 8, the 1 8-2 Tar Heels will
take on Iowa, which was a 5-0 victor
over Providence. The other national
semifinal will match Old Dominion
and Northwestern, the squads that have
handed the Tar Heels their only set
backs of the year.
After a goal by Northeastem's De
bra Sweeney at the 10:35 mark, Lem
pers dug UNC out of its hole with a
score at the 30:10 clip.
Hershey 's game-winner, her 12th
goal of the season, came with 1 8:29 left

UNC was led by the ACC's all-time
career kill leader, Sharon German, who
played in her last regular-season
matches. The 6-foot-2 senior had a total
of 52 kills on the weekend, including
18 against G'town.
"She was a lot more aggressive in
her play," Bradley-Doppes said. "Her
demeanor was a lot more aggressive.
"By the end of game one, (the Hoyas)
were definitely afraid of her afraid to
dig her balls, so if it went over the
block, they didn't even pursue it."
German said about her play: "I felt it
was good. It was better than against
Florida, but it wasn't the best match I
could have possibly had. I'm happy
with it, but I want that game in the

the first option on penalty corners,
wound up to shoot. During Lempers'
fake, Lyness pushed the ball left to
Hershey, who deposited a shot off be
fuddled Husky goalkeeper Brenda
Mitchell into the net.
UNC head coach Karen Shelton,
whose career record is now a stellar
1 33-39-4, was happy to keep her squad' s
national-title hopes alive.
"Overall, I was proud of them be
cause it was a very tough game," Shel
ton said. "Northeastern is an outstand
ing team. They gave us a real battle. We
had to fight and scratch for every ball."
Rough play occurred early and of
ten, perhaps starting when UNC's
Nancy Lang inadvertently nailed
Sweeney in the leg with her stick.
Sweeney was injured but continued to
Later, Hershey and Northeastem's
Andrea Topping exchanged words, and
Husky Anne Mucera pulled Lyness'
hair and heaved her stick at the UNC
midfielder. Lyness, who assisted on
both goals, expected a rough-and-tumble
'They're a very physical team, but
we're used to that," Lyness said. "We
just try to control ourselves. Maybe we
give some back, but we don't retaliate
to make the team suffer."
Several minutes after the original
incident, Sweeney put the Huskies up
1-0. Darting down the right sideline
toward the goal, Sweeney attempted a
shot to UNC goalie Evelien Spee's far
left. Spee went to the post and let the
ball go out of bounds. Apparently, Spee
knocked the goal off its bearing as the
ball rolled into the displaced net. De
spite some argument, the official ruled
it a goal, putting the Tar Heels behind
for only the third time all season.
"It was weird," said Spee, who fin
ished with 1 5 saves. "I guess I was lean
ing against the post. I think it went in
because the goal was pushed back."
Northeastern mentor Cheryl
Murtagh, whose team outshot UNC 22
1'6 (including 14-7 in the second half,
causing Spee to make 12 second-half
saves), said her troops just couldn't
complete their opportunities.
"We came back strong in the second
half," Murtagh said. "Again, we didn't
finish our opportunities. We didn't get
enough penalty corners and we didn't
score on our corners."
Lempers' score, her 25th of the sea
son, came off a beautiful pass from
Lyness. Lempers took the pass on the
right side and nailed one to the left side
call during Saturday's 27-20 loss -
