#6 WLAX at #2 North Carolina, Chapel Hill, N.C.
11AM | WNUR | ESPNU
The Wildcats are on a four-game winning streak, with the sole setback coming against #1 Boston College in the season opener. Northwestern defeated #3 Syracuse 16-15 in overtime on Tuesday, March 1, in a replay of last season's Final Four game. Lauren Gilbert's outstanding season continued with a seven-goal outing that included the game-tying and game-winning goals. Midfielder Jill Girardi had a strong game with five goals and 13 draw controls, including one to start overtime. NU came from three-goals back in the fourth quarter to outscore the Orange 5-2 and force overtime, winning our first overtime game since 2018.
Meeting four time All-American Jamie Ortega and the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill will be big challenge for the 'Cats, leading into another top-ranked competition with current #5 Stony Brook at home in Ryan Fieldhouse on Thursday.
