As evidenced by Thursday's 2-2 tie at Fetzer Field, North Carolina and Florida State have developed one of the nation's top rivalries.

The tie, which ended UNC's 11-match winning streak, marked the fourth time in the last six meetings that UNC and Florida State have gone to overtime.

Carolina led 2-0 after 40 minutes on goals by Allie Long and Tobin Heath, but Finn Sanna Talonen rallied the Seminoles by scoring a pair of
goals, including a backbreaking tally against the Heels with only 40
seconds left in the first half.

Following a UNC goal kick, Talonen received the ball from Marissa Kazbour and dribbled a good 35 yards beating Ashlyn Harris with a low liner inside the left post for the score.

"That goal was awesome," explained Talonen.  "Kaz told me to watch out for the second ball.  The ball was dropped right to her feet and she made a nice pass.  I was fortunate enough to score before half.  We knew we could play much better than we did; that first goal was very important as it helped build momentum for us in the second half."

The Tar Heels are in position to win the ACC regular-season title heading into the final match against Miami (Fla.) Sunday.

Elsewhere ...

-- No. 11 Virginia couldn't take advantage of a 22-6 shot advantage and played to a 0-0 tie with No. 13 Duke. Senior goalkeeper Cassidy Powers registered a career-high 10 saves for Duke.

-- No. 6 Florida finished off its undefeated SEC season with a 1-0 win at South Carolina on Ameera Abdullah's late goal. The Gators are the first SEC team to post an 11-0 record in league play since 2004, the year the SEC schedule changed to include matches against all conference teams.

-- Sophomore Alyssa Mautz, who is headed to next month's Under-20 Women's World Cup, posted her first career hat trick as No. 9 Texas A&M defeated Houston Baptist, 6-2, in front of 2,369 fans.
