CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Following a two-hour lightning delay and a scoreless first half, the top-ranked North Carolina field hockey team notched three second-half goals to register a 3-0 shutout against No. 13 Old Dominion on Friday night at Francis E. Henry Stadium. The Tar Heels improve to 7-0 with the win, while the Lady Monarchs fall to 1-5 on the year.
The game was scheduled to start at 6 p.m., but didn't get underway until almost 8 due to lightning in the area. "In my career at Carolina, that was the longest delay we've had, but I thought our kids handled it well," UNC coach Karen Shelton said. "They stayed loose. Our warmup was great and I felt good from the very beginning. I thought we played the best two halves of hockey we've played all year." +Read More

The Cavaliers got on the board first as Abby Taylor sent a ball up the field on the right side of the pitch to Taylor Swezey, who gained the circle and passed the ball over to Kaitlyn Hiltz.
