No. 4 UConn Tips No. 3 North Carolina in Shootout; Huskies to Play for National Title
The No. 4 University of Connecticut Huskies defeated No. 3 North Carolina in dramatic fashion to advance to the NCAA Championship game on Sunday afternoon in Norfolk, Virginia. UConn, who bested the Tar Heels in strokes to take a 2-1 victory, has rolled to its sixth consecutive win and avenged three of its four season losses, improving to 20-4 on the year. North Carolina concludes its season with a record of 18-6.

The game will be a re-match of the 2013 National Semifinals, which ended in a dramatic 2-1 Husky victory via a shootout. UConn opened the scoring in the 5th minute when Roisin Upton (Limerick, Ireland) sent a hard low shot from the top of the circle that skirted through traffic and found the stick of a sliding Marie Elena Bolles (Phoenixville, Pa.) on the back door. Bolles redirected the shot into the back of the cage from a low angle just off the right post for the 1-0 lead.

The Tar Heels answered with a goal of their own but Anne Jeute and current senior captain Chrissy Davidson (West Lawn, Pa.) each converted a stroke to send the Huskies to the National Championship game vs. Duke



Sunday’s contest will be the 11th-ever meeting between the two programs, with UNC holding a 7-to-3 all-time edge.

The Huskies (6-1) are coming off a 3-1 setback to No. 9 Stanford on Friday night. Freshman forward Charlotte Veitner (Dusseldorf, Germany) continued her strong season when she connected for her team-leading fourth goal of the season at the 7:15 mark.
