UNC-Wilmington Outlasts Carolina in Defensive BattleThe Tar Heels fell to UNCW, 19-10, after a defensive struggle Saturday afternoon. The two teams battled to a 7-7 halftime stalemate before the Seahawks scored two second half tries to win the game.
Carolina opened the game by marching down the field, only to be stopped short of the try-zone by a strong UNCW defense. However, the Heels would strike first when senior flyhalf Dylan Cunningham scored from 10 meters out. Cunningham would nail the kick to make the score 7-0. However, UNCW recovered the ensuing kickoff and, after a lengthy defensive stand on the Carolina try-line, was able to punch in the equalizer. The two teams took the 7-7 draw into halftime.
