Tar Heels roll in Charlottesville

[VIRGINIA-NORTH CAROLINA] No. 4 North Carolina won its fourth game in a row with a 3-0 win at Virginia, handing the Cavaliers their worst loss at Kloeckner Stadium since 2004.

Billy Schuler and Enzo Martinez teamed up for the first goal in the 29th minute and then Martinez and Carlos McCrary added late goals for UNC, which has won its last three games by shutouts.

Schuler struck for his team-leading sixth goal of the year, slotting the ball past keeper Spencer LaCivita from 10 yards after a give-and-go with Martinez.

The Cavs controlled play early in the second half and had several good scoring chances but had nothing to show for it.

Schuler, who created havoc on the Virginia backline all night, was taken down for a penalty in the 76th minute, and Martinez converted the spot kick for his fifth goal of the season.

The Tar Heels capped the scoring in the 81st minute when McCrary headed a Mikey Lopez cross past the outstretched LaCivita.
