Can UNC women’s soccer make its way back to the NCAA title game in 2019?

The North Carolina women’s soccer team was a game away from a 22nd NCAA championship in 2018. Then, heartbreak. 

The Tar Heels cruised their way to a perfect 10-0 conference record, but fell at the hands of Florida State in the ACC Championship. FSU’s Kristina Lynch netted a goal with six minutes and change to play, breaking a 2-2 tie and snatching a conference championship from Anson Dorrance’s squad.

It would be the first of two title games that UNC lost to the Seminoles last season.

The Tar Heels ripped off five wins, including a nerve-wracking penalty kicks victory against UCLA in the quarterfinals, and found a familiar opponent waiting for them. Nearly a month after the conference title loss, North Carolina got its FSU rematch – in the national championship.
