’Noles survive No. 7 UNC road test to remain unbeaten

’Noles survive No. 7 UNC road test to remain unbeaten

One of college women’s soccer’s fiercest rivalries was reignited on Thursday night at Dorrance Field as No. 7 UNC welcomed the undefeated Seminoles with a lot at stake for both teams.

The two giants last squared off at last year’s ACC Championship, where FSU took home the trophy after a Clara Robbins goal secured the 3-2 win. The Tar Heels came into Thursday sitting one spot behind Clemson in the ACC rankings, putting them outside of the conference tournament for the first time in school history.

As perfect as Florida State has been this season, they needed to keep up the pace with Virginia for the No. 1 seed in the tournament. However, the ’Noles would be without the services of Gabby Carle (Canada), Maria Alagoa (Portugal) and Heather Payne (Ireland) due to international duty.
