The squads exchanged possessions over the following eight minutes of play before the Minutemen added the game-tying goal at the 4:16 mark. Whiteway controlled play behind the net and raced around the left side, converting a shot while being knocked to the ground in front at the crease to even the score at 11-11.

North Carolina tallied a 43-38 advantage in shots while the Minutemen scooped up 39 groundballs to 38 for the Tar Heels. UMass finished 18 for 22 on clears to a 12 for 13 clip for UNC. The Tar Heels won the faceoff battle, taking 15 of 28, while Burke finished with 12 saves for North Carolina.

Calvello won 12 of the 26 faceoffs the junior took against the Tar Heels. Redshirt-sophomore Ryan Izzo notched a career-high seven groundballs while Tyler also set a single-game personal-best in the category with six scooped up on the day.
