[NORTH CAROLINA-MICHIGAN STATE MEN] After being rescued in regulation by Enzo Martinez's goal with nine seconds to play, No. 4 seed North Carolina won its second straight shootout by the score of 5-4 when it ousted Michigan State on Sunday and moved into the quarterfinals for the third straight year.

With only 18 seconds remaining, Michael Farfan sent in a corner the Spartans were only able to head to a waiting Martinez outside the box, where he called off UNC goalkeeper Scott Goodwin, who had pushed forward for the corner. The Uruguayan-born sophomore then made a touch to his right foot and beat Michigan State's Avery Steinlage to the top corner to even the score at 1-1.

The Tar Heels dominated play -- they finished with a 31-11 edge in shots -- but Cyrus Saydee had out Michigan State ahead in the 65th minute.

In the shootout, UNC again made all five shots, and Goodwin stopped Saydee's  low shot in the Spartans' second attempt.
