It was bound to happen eventually, and when it happens against a ranked opponent in what amounts to a road game, you can't be terribly surprised. Marquette's women's soccer team suffered their first loss of the season on Friday at the hands of #18/#14 North Carolina by the score of 4-0. Marquette (3-1-1) got in a hole early when Paige Nielsen redirected a long ball into the back of the net for the Tar Heels (3-1-1) in the sixth minute.
Marquette would get two shots in the next 22 minutes, both coming from Maegan Kelly. The first was stopped by UNC keeper Adelaide Gay and the second went wide right. Those would be Marquette's only two shots of the entire game. Summer Green would go on to tally two goals for UNC in the first 13 minutes of the second half, which spelled the end of the Golden Eagles, and the end of Sofie Schunk's time in net for the match. Schunk's shutout streak to start her MU career was snapped at 460:28.
Up Next: Marquette stays in Durham to play their second match of the Duke/Nike Classic against the hosting #4/#4 Duke Blue Devils tomorrow afternoon at 12:30pm Central.
