Breaking It Down Off the Pitch: Drawing Even with UNC

Assistant coach Jeremy Williams and senior midfielder/forward Tia Dupont break down a key goal against UNC.

In this edition of “Breaking it Down off the Pitch,” assistant coach Jeremy Williams sits down with senior midfielder/forward Tia Dupont to discuss a crucial first half goal against third-ranked North Carolina

Just a few minutes before halftime the Hurricanes found themselves trailing, 1-0, early against the eventual ACC Champion and NCAA runner-up.

However, in the 42nd minute, former Miami midfielder Kristina Fisher looked to connect with Frey in the far right corner. Cutting off the pass, the UNC defender looked to clear the ball out of harm’s way and prevent the goal-scoring opportunity.

Not giving up on the play, Frey deflected the clearance and sent the ball toward the awaiting foot of Dupont. Without hesitation, Dupont aimed the ball towards the bottom left pocket and buried it home to send the pair of squads into the locker room tied 1-1.

This video breakdown is the fifth of six set to be released every Tuesday and Thursday in a lead up to the 2020 campaign. Be sure to tune in this Thursday at 1 p.m., as we return to the defensive side of the pitch.
