Women's Soccer Drops Tight One With No. 2 North Carolina

Chapel Hill, NC. - After jumping out to an early lead against the No. 2 ranked Tar Heels, the UCF women's soccer team fell 2-1 in Chapel Hill, NC.
Throughout the early parts of the game, both teams were feeling each other out, with UNC getting the first good look on goal in the 9th minute. Caroline Delisle was forced to dive left to swat the ball out of the box. UCF followed with a chance of their own in the 11th minute when Mallory Olsson found Ellie Moreno inside the box but the shot went just left of the post..
After another save by Delisle, UCF drew first blood in the 24th minute, when Mallory Ollson found Ellie Moreno, who delivered a curling strike from outside the box that the Carolina goalkeeper couldn't reach. 
After consistent pressure and nine offsides in the first 39 minutes of play, UNC eventually tied the game in the 44th minute when Emily Murphy found Ally Sentnor for a goal, equalizing the game at one at halftime. 
The second half started with more pressure from UNC, and the Tar Heels opened the scoring in the 58th minute, when Avery Patterson dribbled inside the box and shot a strike to the right of Delisle. 
UCF finished with only seven shots, while the constant pressure of UNC ended up with fifteen shots. It wasn't until the 84th minute, when the Knights had their first shot of the half. Mallory Ollson and Mia Asenjo totaled three shots in three minutes, all of which were saved.
