DeLaney Passes 100-Point Plateau As Tar Heels Whip Dartmouth
Third-ranked North Carolina went on a 9-0 scoring run to break open a close game, going on to defeat Dartmouth 15-6 in men's lacrosse action Friday night before a crowd of 1,123 at Fetzer Field. Ten different Tar Heel players scored goals in the game and nine UNC players had assists as Carolina scored in double figures for the 15th time in the last 16 games. It was also the seventh time this season UNC's defense has limited its opponent to seven goals or less.

Senior midfielder Sean DeLaney matched his career high with five points to lead the Tar Heels as he exceeded the 100-point standard for his career. The Tar Heel co-captain now has 102 points on 76 goals and 26 assists.

With the win UNC improves to 8-0 on the campaign, the best start for the team since the 1993 NCAA runner-up team began its campaign with nine straight wins. Dartmouth, playing its first ranked team of the year, fell to 2-2 overall before a game at Duke next Tuesday.
