Soccer misses playoff bid, ends season this Saturday
By TOD HUGHES
It will be a disappointed but proud UNC soccer team that takes on Washington &
l.ee at 2 p.m. Saturday on Fetzer Field.
The Heels 1 3-3-1 ) have won 10 and tied one in their last 12 games but got the
disappointing news following their win over Guilford M onday that they had lost the
national tournament bid they were hoping for.
Four Division 1 teams from the southern district are chosen for the national
tournament. The Heels were one of the top four Divison I teams in the South,
trailing Clemson and Appalachian State, both of whom received bids.
Unfortunately, the southern district of the Intercollegiate Soccer Association of
America includes Virginia, West Virginia, the D.C. area and Maryland. Howard
and George Washington University were the final two teams to get bids Monday,
which left UNC high and dry.
So Saturday the season will end for Carolina's booters against Washington &
"They're not as strong as teams we've played recently," Coach Anson Dorrance
said, "although they do have a good coach. We're expecting a well-coached team,
but one that doesn't have the caliber of players we have. It should be a close game;
although since we've lost our bid, the enthusiasm may not-be quite as high. We'll go
out Saturday and play for pride.
"Washington & 1 ee should play us head-to-head. There's no reason to play a
defensive game. Both teams will come out and play exciting soccer."
The game Saturday will close out the collegiate soccer careers of three Carolina
players goalie Lee Horton, fullback and co-captain Peter Griffin and strikerpiaf
Kampfschmidt. Horton broke his leg early in the season, preventing him from
alternating in the goal with Martin Trimble. "We'll see if we can start him,"
Dorrance said. Kampfschmidt has stuck in two winning goals in the past week-and-a-half
against Maryland and Guilford. "Olaf has come on real strong in the past few
games," Dorrance said. And Griffin has been the mainstay of UNC's excellent
"I'd like to see them all go out in style," Dorrance said.
