Virginia Field Hockey falls to the Tar Heels in ACC Semis

ACC Field Hockey is without a doubt the toughest conference in the country. The 3rd-ranked Virginia Cavaliers fell to the 2nd-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels 1-0 in overtime on Friday in the semifinals of the ACC Championship. It was the first time all season that the Hoos were unable to get on the scoreboard.

"It was a great defensive battle today," Virginia head coach Michele Madison said. "Both teams had opportunities. UNC was really dangerous when they hit the 25, and we were a little shy."

The game was scoreless through 70 minutes, and remained so until North Carolina’s Kelsey Kolojejchick intercepted a pass and scored the golden goal 2:07 into the overtime. Despite outshooting the Tar Heels 8-7 and edging them in corners 4-3, Virginia was unable to capitalize, while Carolina will face the top-ranked Maryland Terrapins in the championship game.

The NCAA Tournament draws will be announced at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, and the Cavaliers await their fate until then.
