The No. 4 UNC women’s soccer team started its season with a loss in overtime and seeks revenge Sunday against unranked Ohio State in the final game of the Carolina Nike Classic.
The Tar Heels fell in the 100th minute after leading the entire match in shots and shots on goal, but they weren’t able to connect. The Buckeyes also pulled off the upset with a rebounding goal midway through the second frame.
Carolina’s defense was strong in the first half, only forcing junior goalkeeper Bryane Heaberlin to make one save in the first half. The lone golden goal came against redshirt sophomore Lindsay Harris in overtime after she connected on three saves previously in the contest.
Sunday’s matchup is scheduled to kick off at 2:00 p.m. at Fetzer Field after the Duke/Stanford matchup. You can listen to the UNC/Ohio State matchup live on WCHL beginning at 2:00 p.m.
