[UCF-NORTH CAROLINA] UCF beat North Carolina for the first time in six meetings in the NCAA Women's Tournament, prevailing in a shootout on Sunday after their game ended 1-1. The loss sent the Tar Heels home in the third round for the second straight year.

Brazilian goalkeeper Aline Reis denied Canadian Ranee Premij in the sixth round of the shootout to give the Knights the 5-4 edge and their first birth in the Elite Eight since 1987.

“Obviously, it was a very exciting match going to PKs,” said UCF coach Amanda Cromwell. "I think we gave the crowd a lot to cheer for and I couldn’t be prouder of our girls. They fought so hard. To give a goal up in the last five minutes was tough and a lot of teams I think would’ve crumbled mentally from that. We stood strong and held them off."

After a scoreless first half during which Premji hit the score, UCF took the lead in the 71th minute when it struck on an 18-yard rocket by sophomore Kristina Trujic.

UNC answered 14 minutes later when Crystal Dunn scored on a pass from Courtney Jones.

Carolina and UCF met in the first NCAA final won by the Tar Heels, 2-0, in 1982.
