UNC 0, Notre Dame 1

A goal by Brittany Bock in the 51st minute was all the scoring in the match as No. 5 Notre Dame held off No. 3 North Carolina Friday night at the Nike Carolina Classic in Chapel Hill before a crowd of 2,085 fans on a rain-soaked night.
Bock scored from 30 yards out on a long curving shot into the upper left corner of the goal at 50:21 of match. UNC goalkeeper Anna Rodenbough had to come out of her penalty area to clear a ball on what was quickly becoming a Fighting Irish breakaway. Bock recovered the ball on the far sideline from the grandstand, took a couple of dribbles and launched a shot that hit the upper left 90 of the frame. Rodenbough had quickly retreated to her line but there would have been little she could have done with a shot hit with such precision.
Notre Dame had dominated play up to that point in the game and only some point blank saves by Rodenbough had kept the game scoreless. In the first half she made a save on a one-one-one situation with Melissa Henderson at 19:19, getting her fingertips on a shot and sending the ball wide of the frame for a corner kick. At 39:02, Rebecca Mendoza had another point blank attempt at Rodenbough that she snuffed out.
