Quick-firing Notre Dame knocks off North Carolina

In consecutive games on the first weekend of the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament, Notre Dame scored back-to-back goals in 38 seconds and 75 seconds, but the Irish outdid themselves against North Carolina in Saturday's third round.

Notre Dame set an NCAA Division I Women's Tournament record with goals 14 seconds apart in the 13th minute of its game at Chapel Hill and knocked off the defending champion Tar Heels, 3-2, to gain revenge for its loss in last year's Women's College Cup final.

Brittany Bock scored her 15th goal of the season at 12:41 on a header off a flip throw-in by Michele Weissenhofer. Just 14 seconds later, Weissenhofer scored into an empty net after a back pass by defender Ariel Harris intended for Ashlyn Harris was mishandled by the UNC goalie.

Weissenhofer, last year's Soccer America Freshman of the Year, added a second goal on a breakaway after Allie Long's penalty kick had reduced Notre Dame's lead to one goal. UNC's Nikki Washington made it 3-2 in the 70th minute, and then Weisshofer says the clock seemed to stop ...

Thanks to goalie Lauren Karas, Notre Dame held off a furious Carolina assault to move into the quarterfinals against Duke. Karas came up with several big stops, most notably on Casey Nogueira with less than 30 seconds remaining, to preserve the win.
