No. 3 North Carolina Outguns No. 10 Georgetown

Georgetown scored the game's initial goal when Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) netted her first of four, off a free position shot. Over the next 15 minutes the Tar Heels recorded seven unanswered. GU took four shots during the UNC run but Tar Heel goalie Maksym, made three saves.

After falling behind 7-1 the Blue and Gray were able to close the margin with three straight scores. Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) started the string with an assist from Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker), her first of the year. A free position goal from Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) cut the deficit to four and Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) scored unassisted to draw GU within three and force a UNC timeout.

Over the final nine minutes of the first half the Tar Heels added three more goals to enter the break with 10. Georgetown was able to notch two more scores in the same span. Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) recorded a free position tally and Farrell scored goal number two with an assist credited to Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep). At halftime GU was down four, 10-6.

UNC added a score within the first 30 seconds of the second half and were up five before Georgetown began its comeback bid. The Hoyas posted four consecutive goals and closed within one with 19 minutes to play. Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) started the barrage and she was followed by a Bozel score from Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes). Down 11-8 at that point Farrell netted two straight, assisted by Bozel and Corcoran respectively, and the Hoyas were as close as they had been since the first seven minutes.

North Carolina went on another scoring run, recording five unanswered over a six minute period and built a 16-10 lead. Tarzian notched her second of the day with 5:07 to play but the Tar Heels held the Hoyas off the scoreboard the remainder of the game and were able to add one more score.
