UNC Women's Soccer Advances to NCAA Title Game

Carolina wins it's third straight tournament game in extra time to earn the second spot in the College Cup final, beating Stanford 1-0.

In a game that ended shortly before 2 AM on the east coast, the UNC women's soccer team got a game winning goal from Kealia Ohai midway through the second overtime to knock off defending champion Stanford 1-0 and advance to the College Cup Final. It was UNC's third straight NCAA Tournament win in either overtime or penalty kicks.

On a night that saw periods of heavy rain, UNC and Stanford fought to a 0-0 tie after 90 minutes of regulation and the first overtime. UNC had a solid scoring chance in the first extra session but a save from Stanford goalkeeper Emily Oliver keept the game scoreless. In the second overtime Crystal Dunn threaded a pass to Ohai with a clear path to the goal. Ohai put a shot past Oliver off the left post and into the goal to send UNC to its 24th appearance in the title game.

UNC will attempt to win a record 22nd national championship in women's soccer on Sunday against Penn State. That game will be televised on ESPNU starting at 4 PM.
