Daly plays in Tar Heels’ 3-0 shutout win vs. Michigan State

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS – Whittell High School graduate Hannah Daly saw her first action of the season Sunday for the top-ranked North Carolina women’s soccer team.

Anna Sieloff started in goal, going 74:29 while sophomore Daly played the final 15:31. Neither keeper faced a shot on goal in North Carolina’s 3-0 win against Michigan State.

The shutout was Carolina’s second of the season. UNC has now posted shutouts in 29 of its last 39 matches and given up only 14 goals over the last 3,642 minutes and 16 seconds of play dating back to Oct. 30, 2008.

Alyssa Rich scored in the fifth minute and Kealia Ohai and Brittani Bartok added second half goals as top-ranked North Carolina turned in a workmanlike effort in defeating Michigan State 3-0 at Aggie Soccer Stadium Sunday afternoon. The Tar Heels improve to 2-0 on the season after also beating No. 8 Texas A&M Friday 3-0. MSU falls to 1-1.

UNC dominated play throughout, outshooting the Spartans 25-3 and earning 13 corner kicks to two for Michigan State.

The Tar Heels got a balanced scoring effort with Alyssa Rich scoring the game-winner and then assisting on the first insurance goal. Ohai earned her first career goal to provide the Heels with the initial separation and then Bartok finished off the scoring off an assist by freshman Elizabeth Burchenal, her first career point.

The Tar Heels will next be in action Friday and Sunday in the Carolina Nike Classic at Fetzer Field. On Friday, 24th-ranked Duke will tussle with Missouri at 4 p.m. to be followed by a match between No. 1 Carolina and No. 2 Stanford at 6 p.m. That will be a matchup of the 2009 NCAA championship game which was won by the Tar Heels 1-0 over an unbeaten and untied Stanford side.

The doubleheader Sunday will feature the Cardinal and the Blue Devils in an 11 a.m. start followed by UNC versus Missouri, the 2009 Big 12 regular-season champion.
