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.
