[NORTH CAROLINA-FLORIDA] North Carolina had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Florida Friday night before a Fetzer Field crowd of 4,125 fans at the Carolina Nike Classic, marking the first time the No. 19 Tar Heels have gone scoreless and winless in their first two games in their 34-year history.

Carolina had gone 60-3-3 in its first two games in its previous 33 seasons but has opened 0-1-1 after a 1-0 loss at Portland and its draw with Florida.

The Heels' best chances came in the first half when Amber Brooks pinged her shot from four yards off the right upright and four minutes into overtime when freshman Paige Nielsen hit the crossbar.

UNC has four players at the Under-20 Women's World Cup. Crystal Dunn, Bryane Heaberlin and Kealia Ohai are all starting for the USA, while Katie Bowen is playing for New Zealand's Football Ferns, who have opened with a 2-1 win over Switzerland and 2-2 tie with host Japan.

UNC freshman striker Summer Green also missed the Florida game after heading to the U.S. U-17 national team camp following last Friday's game at Portland.
 
The Tar Heels also played without starting left back Megan Brigman, who had started 44 successive games for North Carolina. She suffered a fracture in her left leg less than four minutes into the Portland game and is out a minimum of four weeks.

For its part, No. 20 Florida was without Notre Dame transfer Adriana Leon, who is playing for Canada at the U-20 World Cup.
