North Carolina will play Notre Dame for the NCAA Division I women's title for the fourth time when they meet Sunday in the 2006 Women's College Cup final.
Top-ranked Notre Dame edged Florida State after scoring twice in the 10 last minutes of the first half. The Seminoles shut down the big Irish guns, Kerry Hanks and Michele Weissenhofer, but Notre Dame goals by freshman reserve Courtney Rosen and holding midfielder Jill Krivacek.

Yael Averbuch set by Casey Nogueira and Heather O'Reilly for goals in the 84th and 86th minutes to lead UNC past UCLA, 2-0.

Notre Dame and North Carolina both carry 26-game unbeaten streaks into Sunday's final (TV: ESPN2, live, 12:30 pm ET). The Irish remained the nation's only unbeaten team and meet a UNC team that hasn't lost since dropping its opener in double overtime at Texas A&M.

North Carolina and Notre Dame have met in the championship game three times before -- in 1994, 1996 and 1999 -- with the Tar Heels winning all three contests.

"I've played against [North Carolina coach] Anson [Dorrance] an awful lot of times and I've never won," said Notre Dame coach Randy Waldrum. "I think personally it would mean a lot (to beat UNC for the championship) because you always want to challenge yourself against one of the best coaches in the country. We're not in awe of Carolina. We think they've got a great team and the legacy of their program is unparalleled.
