The women's soccer team traveled down the road to Durham for the Nike Duke Classic over the weekend. The Tar Heels played to a 1-1 tie versus California in the first game. Megan Buckingham, playing for the first time this season thanks to a broken collarbone over the summer, tallied UNC's only goal.

UNC returned to the win column on Sunday taking a 2-1 win over 15th ranked USC. UNC trailed 1-0 in the first half before Jessie Scarpa provides the equalizer in the 32nd minutes. S.A. Fristenberg's header in the 68th minute put the Tar  Heels ahead for good. UNC survived a late push from USC including a shot off the crossbar in the 89th minute.

The Tar Heels moved to 5-0-1 on the season.
