The College of William and Mary, playing without three of its top players, committed costly mistakes against no. 7 University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (10-2-1, 2-2 ACC) Tuesday night and fell 4-1 before 368 fans at Albert-Daly Field.
With UNC controlling the match, two Tribe mistakes led to two first-half goals for the Tar Heels as they outshot the Tribe 7-2 in the opening half. Sophomore forward Alan Koger’s second goal of the season came in the 84th minute with the College trailing 3-0. In the opening frame, the Tribe played cautiously and allowed the Tar Heels to maintain possession.
The College’s offense was quiet until midway through the second half when the Tar Heels cleared two balls off the line and Koger hit the crossbar with a late shot.
