The Canes enter this season’s contest with a 5-7-2 overall record and 2-4-0 mark in the ACC, winning two of their last three matches.
Last weekend, Miami split a pair of road contests, rallying back from two goals down to defeat Pittsburgh, 3-2, before falling at Louisville, 3-0.
With a trio of goals against the Panthers, Haralz became only the second Hurricane to register a hat-trick in the second half of play, matching a record set by Laura West against Florida Atlantic on Aug. 30, 2000.
