Freshman Emily Garrity (Strath Haven) scored two goals and scooped two groundballs to help host North Carolina beat third-ranked Pennsylvania, 11-6 on Saturday afternoon at Fetzer Field in women’s Division I action.
The No. 4 Tar Heels (6-1) dominated the second half, outscoring the Quakers, 5-1, and outshooting them 15-3 after halftime.
Becky Lynch had three goals and an assist and Laura Zimmerman had a goal and two assists for the Heels.
Penn (2-1) got two goals from Erin Brennan, two goals from Ali DeLuca and one apiece from Bridget Waclawik and Carolyn Pollard. Courtney Lubbe (Council Rock North) had three assists for the Quakers while Giulia Giordano had two assists.
Both UNC and Penn reached the 2009 NCAA Final Four and are strong contenders to do so again this spring. The win was the first for the Tar Heels against Penn after back-to-back losses to the Quakers in the last two years, including an 8-7 defeat in Chapel Hill in 2008 and an 11-2 loss in Philadelphia last year.
“It was a good win for our program against a very good team,” said UNC head coach Jenny Levy. “Penn beat us on a last-second goal here two years ago and we didn’t put forth our best effort against them last year up at their place. We had a strong effort today, especially in the second half.”
