#4 UNC Women's Soccer Blanks Boston College 1-0

For the third straight year North Carolina and Boston College fought tooth and nail on the women's soccer pitch and the result was the same as the previous two occasions, a nailbaiter 1-0 win for the #4 Tar Heels.

Amber Munerlyn back from injury, scores first goal

Amber Munerlyn was all over the field in her second game back from injury — after she took an elbow in the face in UNC’s Sept. 15 match against Notre Dame. She’ll need to wear her splint for at least another month. All the while, UNC coach Anson Dorrance looked on from the sidelines, amazed at her effort. “Her jaw could fall out,” Dorrance said. “She plays with a wonderful sort of fearlessness.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Josh Rice has overcome many obstacles in UNC soccer career

On Sept. 28, with a 26th-minute goal against Wake Forest, all of Josh Rice’s hard work finally paid off. It wasn’t a game-winning goal or even a goal in the final minutes to salvage the UNC men’s soccer game. However, to redshirt senior Rice, it was everything. It represented a culmination of perseverance and a relentless dedication to overcoming a laundry list of obstacles. (Daily Tar Heel)

Crystal Dunn Scores Twice As Tar Heels Blank Wolfpack 3-0

Dunn and Ohai: Carrying The Weight

It's easy to see why Anson Dorrance may not want to have each player compare herself to the likes of previous generations which include names like Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, and Heather O'Reilly, to name just a few. Who can compare? Perhaps All-American seniors Kealia Ohai and Crystal Dunn might fit the mold. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Men's Soccer Drops Overtime Decision To Clemson

Kealia Ohai more than just a national champion

Kealia Ohai won four Utah 5A state championships, scored 126 high school goals and has scored 34 goals with 23 assists so far at UNC. Her numbers are impressive, even more so when you consider how she’s done it — with one eye. “I’m blind in my right eye,” said Ohai, describing her condition with the same nonchalance she might use to describe the color of her shoes.

UNC Women's Soccer: Team. Fun. Love. Family.

UNC Men's Soccer: Fit To Be Tied
