Top-ranked North Carolina used a quartet of second-half goals, including two by Elizabeth Guess, to upend the University of Miami women’s soccer team, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at Cobb Stadium in front of 767 fans, the second-largest crowd in school history.

Sophomore keeper Lauren McAdam tied the school record for saves in a game with 13 on the day, but the Tar Heels (10-0-0, 2-0-0 ACC) proved to be too much, posting a total of 36 shots – a school record for most shots taken by an opponent against UM – while holding the Hurricanes’ (5-5-1, 0-2-0 ACC) offensive attack to just five shots.

North Carolina opened the game on the attack, recording a total of 14 shots in the first half, but McAdam, who turned in seven saves in the first half, and Hurricane defensive efforts held UNC in check as the two teams headed into the half scoreless.

The scoring drought would last just over seven minutes into the second half when UNC’s Lori Chalpupny scored from the far left wing on an attempted cross that sailed left and over the top of McAdam to find the back of the net, giving the Tar Heels their first goal of the day in the 53rd minute.

Guess posted her first goal of the day off her own rebound just under seven minutes later, firing off a shot inside the box right in front of McAdam who couldn’t recover from saving a Guess shot just moments before.

North Carolina’s Heather O’Reily added UNC’s third goal of the day in the 74th minute, taking a pass in the box from the deep left corner from teammate Jaime Gilbert and turning to score in the short side of the net.

The Tar Heels final goal of the day would be Guess’ second as she took a feed from Lindsay Tarpley in the box to score in the left corner in the 85th minute to give UNC the eventual 4-0 win.

Led by junior Luigi D’Agord’s singles flight championship appearance at the 2005 UVa Fall Invitational in Charlottesville, Va., members of the University of Miami men’s tennis team posted an overall singles record of 11-6 in a pair of tournaments over the weekend.

After upending 68th-ranked Alex Hume of Kentucky in the semifinals Sunday morning, 26th-ranked D’Agord moved on to the flight “A” singles championship where he fell to 12th-ranked Somdev Devvarman of Virginia 7-6, 6-3 for the title.

D’Agord advanced to Sunday’s semifinals with a second-round win over Ashwin Kumar of Harvard, 7-6, 6-3, Friday followed by a win over 122nd-ranked Treat Huey of Virginia, 7-6, 6-2 in the third round and 61st-ranked Marko Miklo of Virginia, 7-5, 6-1, in the quarterfinals Saturday.

Senior Tim Krebs – ranked 62nd nationally – also advanced to Saturday’s “A” flight quarterfinals with two wins, nearly setting up an all-UM semifinal match, but fell to Hume in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.

Twentieth-ranked junior Josh Cohen made his way to the quarterfinals of the flight “B” bracket with a pair of wins, but fell at the hands of Devvarman, 6-2, 6-2.

Senior Eric Hechtman – ranked 100th – made it out of the first round of the flight “A” bracket with a three-set win over Kai Scheldom of Middle Tennessee before falling to Hume in the second round.

In doubles, D’Agord and Krebs defeated Dan Buikema and Sammy Struyf of Alabama, 8-2, in the first round of the flight “A” doubles bracket Saturday before falling to second-seeded Andreas Siljestrom and Marc Boiron of Middle Tennessee, 8-5, in the second round.

While D’Agord, Cohen, Krebs and Hechtman competed in Virginia, junior P.J. Passalacqua, senior John Hoyes and sophomore Vivek Subramanian took part in the 2005 USF Invitational in Tampa, Fla. Friday and Saturday

Passalacqua and Hoyes both advanced to Saturday’s quarterfinals in the “Green” flight, one of two flights, following first-round wins on Friday while Subramanian was forced to withdrawal from the tournament following a hamstring injury.

Passalacqua fell in the quarters to Dirk Britzen of South Florida, 6-0, 6-0. Hoyes downed Pasqual Duttlinger of Troy in three sets, 7-5, 5-7, 6-3, in Saturday’s quarters, but fell to Britzen, 6-1, 6-1, in the semifinal match.

The Hurricanes will return to action this weekend, traveling to Gainesville, Fla. to take part in the Florida Invitational Friday-Sunday.
