Brown leads Tar Heels into final eight

[NORTH CAROLINA-FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON] Senior Cameron Brown, who sat out the 2010 and 2011 seasons because of a knee injury suffered in 2010, scored a minute and a half into overtime to push defending champion North Carolina into the final eight with a 1-0 win over upstart Fairleigh Dickinson Sunday night at Fetzer Field.

Brown redeemed himself after a pair of narrow misses earlier in the contest when he put away Rob Lovejoy's cross for his third of the year.

Scott Goodwin lowered his goals against average to 0.26 -- the fourth lowest in NCAA history -- as the Tar Heels earned their nation-leading 17th shutout of the year. They also extended their home unbeaten streak to 40 matches with the win.

FDU, the NEC champion, had beaten St. John's and Saint Louis on the road before falling in Chapel Hill.

"What a great run we had this postseason," FDU coach Seth Roland said. "This group has restored our program back to greatness and national prominence. We went toe-to-toe with the defending national champions and put ourselves in a position to win the game a handful of times but were just a little unlucky."

Nov. 25 in Chapel Hill, N.C.
North Carolina 1 Fairleigh Dickinson 0. Goal: Brown (Lovejoy) 92.
North Carolina -- Goodwin, Campbell, Okwuonu, McCrary, Gafa, Olofson, Garcia, George, Lopez, Lovejoy, Craven. Subs: Murphy, Brown, Valimaa.
Fairleigh Dickinson -- Lissek, Barrenechea, Durkot, Walker, Wells, Moore, McVey, Vest-Hansen, Baafi, Aubert, Wright. Subs: Chimhanda, Hamza, Calixto, Doherty.
Att.: 750.
