Hurricanes Fall to No. 2 North Carolina

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The University of Miami fell to the second-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at Cobb Stadium.

After shutting out Boston College in their last match, the Hurricanes (5-7-3, 2-6-2) couldn’t contain one of the top offensive teams in the country.

Four different players scored for the Tar Heels (14-3, 7-2 ACC), as North Carolina scored a pair of goals in each half.

Redshirt freshman forward Ally Sentnor found the back of the net in the 10th minute before senior defender Tori Hansen buried a penalty kick in the 33rd minute.

Junior Avery Patterson extended the Tar Heels’ advantage less than 10 minutes after the intermission and forward/midfielder Rachel Jones capped off the scoring in the 71st minute.

Twenty-two Hurricanes appeared in Miami’s penultimate home contest.

Up next, the Hurricanes wrap up their regular season slate Thursday, when No. 8 Virginia visits Cobb Stadium. Prior to Thursday’s tilt, Miami will host its annual Senior Day, honoring veterans María Jakobsdóttir, Jackie Koerwitz, Jaclyn Marra, Chloe O’Neill, Taylor Shell and Emma Tucker.
