North Carolina women ousted in historic defeat

MOST COMMENTED

[COLLEGE] Notre Dame ousted two-time North Carolina, 4-1, before 1,522 fans in the third round of the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament, marking the first time the Tar Heels had lost a game by more than one goal in almost 25 years and the most goals they've given up in a game in 30 years.

Rose Augustin had a goal and two assists and Melissa Henderson added a goal and an assist as Notre Dame moved into the quarterfinals next weekend against Oklahoma State.
 
North Carolina ended the match with a 15-9 edge in shots and an 8-5 advantage in corner kicks.  But Notre Dame was clinical in finishing and got a huge game from Nikki Weiss in goal with five saves.
 
The Irish for the third straight time in Chapel Hill. They defeated UNC, 3-2, at the same stage of the 2007 NCAA Tournament.

"I certainly want to congratulate Notre Dame. I thought they completely outfought us in the first half and they deserved to be in a dominant position going into the second half. I thought we tried to come back in the second half, but they counterattacked well and we just couldn't seem to get anything past their defense and their goalkeeper," said Carolina coach Anson Dorrance. "Having said that, I'm certainly proud of our season. For us to lose the kids we've lost and to have the number of injuries, to have this kind of year is something I'm very proud of. I'm certainly proud of my senior leaders and they way they guided this young team. And I'm just sorry the season is over."

    Was Anson praising his young team and his players or defending himself that he lost when he made the comments in the article? Where are Randy Waldrum's comments?

    Bill, If you had any idea who he is, you would know that he is very graceful in defeat. And who does he need to defend himself from or against? He is a major reason for the strength of the women's game. Do you know any other coach that has his entire game plan in books for his opponents to read, or that spends lots of his time helping behind the scenes to get the Women's Pro League going> Most college coaches will not release players for National Team conflicts, yet he encourages it! They lost 8 to graduation (7 played WPS), 1 to grades (solid forward) and have had the other 3 players that have experience injured most of the season. I am a die hard Tarheel (Women's Soccer) and it kills me when they don't win it all, but they had a good year and will be back next year as strong as ever! If you are an Irish fan, I can understand your demeanor. Just be happy for your team and we'll see you next year!
