The UNC men's soccer team needed penalty kicks to dispatch UCLA in a tough and entertaining game that propelled the Tar Heels to the College Cup Final where they will face sister UNC system school Charlotte(aka UNC-Charlotte)
UNC trailed UCLA by one goal twice and in both instances rallied to tie the game. The second goal came with five minutes left in regulation when Billy Shuler rushed to the front of the goal to knock the ball into the net following a save by the Bruins keeper. After a pair of scoreless 10 minute overtime periods the contest went to penalty kicks. Scott Goodwin make saves on UCLA's first two shots while UNC scored on their first two chances. After a Bruin score then save on UNC's third kick, UCLA missed wide right and Ben Speas buried the next kick to send the Heels to Sunday's final.
