Under the lights at Karen Shelton Stadium on Friday night, the UNC hockey team delivered a 1-0 victory over the Syracuse Orange thanks to a late goal from American Erin Matson.

Matson scored on a penalty corner attempt with just under eight minutes to go, while the Tar Heel defense stayed strong the rest of the way, improving UNC to 5-1 in 2020 so far.

It was Matson’s team-leading fifth goal of the season and it extended the Tar Heels’ winning streak to four games, after the team cracked its 47-game win streak through Louisville last month.

The Tar Heels came to eleven shots against Syracuse (1-3) on Friday, while the Dutch were held to only five.

However, a solid defensive effort from the visitors meant that the game would be decided in the closing minutes.

It all boiled down to arguably the best player in the country doing what she does best, and of course Matson delivered when UNC needed it.

“I am very happy with the execution of Erin in the penalty corner, to eliminate the first runner from the penalty corner and put the ball in the goal,” said head coach Karen Shelton. “And hats off to our defense, the whole team played well and it was a great team performance. I thought both teams were playing really hard, and we kind of grew up in this game. “

The Tar Heels are scheduled to host Duke on Sunday, in a match starting at noon.
