Men's soccer

UNC and Pittsburgh played much of the game on Friday at a 0-0 standstill before UNC broke it open with a couple of late goals. Colton Storm's second goal of the season in the 85th minute put the Heels ahead 1-0. Tucker Hume followed just two minutes later with an insurance goal to effectively sow up UNC's eighth win of the season. The Heels are now 4-0 in ACC play.

Next up: 10/6 vs UNCW, 10/10 vs Syracuse

Women's soccer

The #1 ranked women's soccer team was set to host Boston College at Fetzer Field on Friday but the Carolina Monsoon of 2015 rendered the field unplayable. So UNC found a turf field to play on at Cedar Falls Park in Chapel Hill as the Heels took down the Eagles 2-0. Alexa Newfield scored her team leading seventh goal of the season to stake a 1-0 lead for the Heels in the 16th minute. Joanna Boyles third score of the season six minutes into the second half put the Heels up 2-0.

After facing Louisville on Thursday, UNC will kickoff a three game stretch versus ranked ACC opponents starting with #2 Florida State on Sunday in Tallahassee.

Field Hockey

UNC played just once during the week and moved to 10-1 overall with an 8-3 drubbing of Virginia in Charlottesville. Gab Major tied a UNC record with five goals on the day. Nine Hortman added a pair of goals in the win. UNC has scored 16 goals in the past two contests.

Next up: 10/9 vs Longwood


And up and down season for the Tar Heels stabilized for at least a weekend with UNC sweeping a pair of Big Four foes in Chapel Hill. UNC took an impressive 3-0 win over Duke winning the games 25-14, 25-19, 25-15. The Heels followed up on Sunday with a 3-0 win over Wake Forest in similar fashion 25-12, 25-13, 25-15.

The two wins ran UNC's home winning streak in ACC play to 18 games. After starting the season 2-6, UNC has won four of the last five games and is 3-1 in ACC play.
