Unbeatens: UNC tops ACC, Cornell's shutout streak ends

No. 2 North Carolina (10-0-1) and Cornell (8-0-2) remained the only unbeaten women's teams in the country with wins on Sunday afternoon. The Tar Heels defeated Wake Forest, 1-0, to improve their record in the ACC to 3-0-0. The Big Red, off to the best start in its 34-year program history, earned a 2-1 victory over Wagner, which did what no opponent had mustered against it to date — score a goal.
 
The Tar Heel goal came in the 17th minute when Summer Green scored off her own rebound for her sixth goal of the season. UNC finished with an edge in shots 20-4, but Lindsay Preston made nine saves for the Demon Deacons to keep the game close until the end.
 
Forwards Paige DeLoach and Meera Marhoefer scored goals for Cornell, which used 23 players in the game two days after a 1-0 victory over Columbia in their Ivy League opening game on Friday night. Peyton Beck scored on a penalty kick for Wagner in the 81st minute to end Cornell's program-record shutout streak at 1,054 minutes.

    WHY DOES THIS READER GET THE IMPRESSION THAT WEST COAST TEAMS STILL, TO THIS DAY AFTER SEVERAL DECADES, ALWAYS GET THE RAW END OF THE STICK WHEN NO SCORES ARE MENTIONED? WHAT, THEY END TOO LATE FOR THE PUBLICATION DEADLINES???
