CHAPEL HILL, NC–Yael Averbuch scored one goal and had one assist in leading top-ranked North Carolina to a 5-1 win over Clemson in a women’s Atlantic Coast Conference soccer match at Chapel Hill, NC Friday night.

North Carolina opened the scoring in the second minute as Averbuch scored her third goal of the season with a 30-yard shot.

Clemson tied the score 1-1 as Courtney Foster scored her first goal of the season at the 13:24 mark.

The Tar Heels took a 2-1 lead with 3:57 left to go in the first half as Lori Chalupny scored her sixth goal of the year as she sent a 15-yard shot into the lower right corner of the goal.

North Carolina scored three times in the final 13:09 of the match as Katie Brooks, Kacey White, and Lindsay Tarpley all scored goals for the Tar Heels.

“I thought we gave good effort, especially our four backs and our goalkeeper,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “The score may not indicate how well they played, but they kept us in the match until the final 14 minutes. We are still working hard and we will have to prepare for Virginia Tech who comes to Clemson next Thursday.”
