The week that was for the non-revenue sports at UNC.

Men's soccer

The second ranked men's soccer team remained undefeated with a pair of wins last week.

On Tuesday the Tar Heels blanked UNCW 3-0 thanks to two goals from Zach Wright. Both Wright goals came in the first half to give UNC a 2-0 lead at the break. Alan Winn added his fourth goal of the season in the 81st minute for the final tally.

The Tar Heels returned to ACC play on Saturday night with a come from behind 2-1 win over Syracuse. UNC surrendered a goal in the 23rd minute and trailed for much of the game until Tucker Hume provided the equalizer in the 74th minute off an assist from Alan Winn. Alex Olofson put UNC up for good in the 83rd minute from 18 yards out.

UNC is now 10-0-1 and 5-0 in ACC play.

Women's soccer

Not a good week for the Tar Heel women's soccer team as UNC took its first loss of the season and for only the fourth time in 37 years lost back-to-back games.

On Thursday the Heels fell to Louisville 2-1 in overtime. Alex Kimball put UNC up 1-0 in the 35th minute. Louisville responded early in the second half to tie the game. The contest would remain tied until nine second remaining in overtime when the Cardinals' Carolina Kimble found the back of the net off a free kick to give Louisville the win. UNC out shot Louisville 30-6 and had 10 corner kicks to just one for the Cardinals but could not come up with enough goals to stay unbeaten.

On Sunday, UNC traveled to Tallahassee to face Florida State coming away with a 1-0 loss. The second ranked Seminoles dominated the first half with 12 shots to UNC's five and four corner kicks. The game settled into an even contest in the second half with the only goal coming from the Seminoles in the 79th minute to send UNC to 4-2 in ACC play and 11-2-1 overall.

Field Hockey

The field hockey team saw action just once this week but made the most of it with a third straight game of scoring eight goals. This week's victim of UNC's offensive juggernaut was Longwood. Eva van't Hoog had a hat tick as the Heels crushed the Lancers 8-1 to move to 11-1 overall.

Next up: 10/16 vs Duke


UNC's season on the brink has gotten on track quite nicely in ACC play with UNC sweeping two more league opponents this week. The Heels took a 3-0 win over NC State on Wednesday. It was UNC's third straight win over the Pack and their 35th in 37 matches since 1998.

The Heels followed up two days later with a 3-0 win over Virginia in Chapel Hill. UNC is now 5-1 in ACC play and alone in third place behind 6-0 Florida State and Louisville. UNC will see host the former this week in Chapel Hill.
