Defending NCAA Division I women's champion North Carolina has now lost twice in its first six games -- the earliest it has lost as many as two games in its history. On opening day, it was South Carolina that upset the Tar Heels. Sunday's upset winner was William & Mary, which prevailed, 1-0, on a late goal at the VCU/Ewing Sports Invitational at Richmond, Va.

North Carolina suffered its second loss in six games -- the earliest it has lost as many as two games in its history -- when it fell to William & Mary, 1-0, Sunday at the VCU/Ewing Sports Invitational at Richmond, Va.

UNC, which went into the game with a 20-0-1 record against William & Mary, outshot the Tribe, 17-1, and had a 10-1 edge in corner kicks, but it lost when Claire Zimmeck scored on a header off a feed from Emily Kittleson with a little more than five minutes remaining in the match.

Junior Meghan Walker came up with seven saves as she handed Carolina its second shutout of the season. The Tar Heels lost to South Carolina, 1-0, in their opener.

"We had a great performance defensively, and the entire team was magnificent," William & Maty coach John Daly said. "Most of their shot attempts came from a long way out, and we pushed forward more in the second half. UNC is a great team, but we battled them the entire way and had a great effort."
