CHAPEL HILL, NC – No.13 Razorback Soccer fell to No.3 North Carolina in overtime on Sunday by a 1-0 score, after a golden Tar Heels goal in the 6e minute of the additional period.
How did it happen
>> In the 69e minute, Arkansas goalie Hannah Warner successfully dove to deflect a shot from North Carolina forward Isabel Cox. Warner has made 13 saves in the last two games.
>> A corner in the 83rd Parker Goins’ minute resulted in a header from Cora Duininck which landed just below the goal line and was eventually kicked out of the goal area by a Tar Heel defender.
>> A lightning delay caused the game to stop after 90 minutes of action, which resumed at 3:15 p.m. CT. Nearly seven minutes into extra time, North Carolina midfielder Sam Meza connected on a shot just outside the penalty area in the upper left corner of the goal.
>> Jessica De Filippo and Parker Goins have combined four of Arkansas’ six shots. Goins now leads the team with three.
Hear it from Coach Hale
“First credit to UNC. Sunday on the road to UNC can be one of the toughest tests in college sports. Losing sucks, don’t get me wrong. You never just lose. That being said, this weekend will pay off. We have improved and will use that as a barometer to determine where we need to progress to achieve our ultimate goal of going to a Final Four.
Next time outside
The Razorbacks will return to Fayetteville for the home opener against No.15 BYU, scheduled for Monday, August 30 at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network Plus.
