Ohai continues hot streak for Tar Heels

[BOSTON COLLEGE-NORTH CAROLINA] Kealia Ohai scored her sixth goal of the season to lead No. 7 North Carolina past No. 13 Boston College, 1-0, Thursday night before a crowd of 2,000 at the Newton Campus Soccer Center. The win extended its unbeaten string to six matches.
 
Ohai’s goal in the 68th minute came after the BC defense failed to clear a Tar Heel corner kick.

The ball squirted out to freshman defender Caitlin Ball on the left side of the box and she redirected a high cross to the top of the box, where Rachel Wood nodded it on to Ohai, who buried a shot inside the left side netting from 12 yards out.
 
A week earlier, Ohai also had the game-winner for the Tar Heels in a 1-0 win over Duke.  She has now scored in four of the past five games for UNC, all of which have resulted in victories.
 
Boston College, which at one time was 9-0-2, fell for the fourth straight game.
