The Tigers did their best to shield
themselves from UNC’s inevitable on
slaught, but it quickly became apparent
that Princeton didn’t have the legs to
keep pace with the Tar Heel forwards,
who had numerous opportunities.
Kate Barber and Cindy Werley led
one of their patented two-vs.-the-defense
breakaways within the first five minutes,
but they lost possession atthe last minute.
Ashley Hanson slapped a centering pass
across the goal mouth, but Barber and
Werley both whiffed.
But on UNC’s second comer bid of
the contest, stemming from forward
Nancy Pelligreen’s rush into the Princeton
circle, Susannah Schott found the back
of the net. The Tar Heels had taken a lead
they would not relinquish.
“When we went out there today, ev

“Everyone was just doing their job.”

According to economic statistics re

Orange County is losing retail business
to neighboring Durham County, hurting
local merchants and impacting the
county’s sales-tax revenues.
Retail sales’ growth in Orange County
dropped to 2.4 percent in the last fiscal
year following three consecutive years of
at least 10 percent annual increases, ac
cording to statistics released by the Or
ange County Economic Development
Commission Director Ted Abernathy
said the strength of retail competition in
neighboring counties helped explain this
decrease. He pointed to large develop
ments such as New Hope Commons,
offering Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Barnes
& Noble stores near the Orange and
Durham county line.
“There’s a changing pattern of retail
buying in America," Abernathy said.
“Now the prevailing most popular thing
to do is to go to these large superstores."
The shopping trend hurt Orange
County because many people spent
money at superstores outside county lines,
