GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – North Carolina junior forward Summer Green has been named ACC Women’s Soccer Player of the Week, announced Tuesday by the league. 

Green figured in to both goals for North Carolina as it topped Syracuse 2-1 in overtime and clinched a share of the regular season championship with Florida State. It is UNC’s first regular season title since 2010. 

Green scored the Tar Heels’ first goal of the game against the Orange in the 17th minute, and provided the game-winning assist of Paige Nielsen’s goal in the 96th minute. Green owns 10 points on two goals and six assists. She has also played a key role in North Carolina’s 12-game unbeaten streak since Aug. 31, and the Tar Heels’ 9-0-1 finish in ACC play.

North Carolina, which earned the No. 2 seed in the 2014 ACC Women’s Soccer Championship, will play No. 3 seed Virginia in the second semifinal game of the tournament that will be played at UNCG Soccer Stadium Nov. 7 and 9. No. 1 seed Florida State and No. 4 seed Notre Dame will meet in the first semifinal Friday at 5:30 p.m. Both games will be streamed live on ESPN3.
