— With goals from four different players, the top-ranked North Carolina field hockey team beat No. 11 Stanford 4-1 Saturday afternoon at Francis E. Henry Stadium to extend its season by another game and advance to the second round of NCAA Tournament play.

The Tar Heels (21-1) will return to the Henry Stadium turf on Sunday at 2 p.m. to take on No. 8 Old Dominion, a 6-1 winner over No. 9 Michigan in Saturday’s second game at Henry Stadium. The winner of the second-round matchup advances to field hockey’s final four next weekend in Norfolk, Va.

UNC is the top overall seed in the field. The Tar Heels have advanced to the NCAA championship game in each of the past three years and four of the last five.

“We’re very excited to live to play another day and earn another game at Francis E. Henry Stadium,” UNC coach Karen Shelton said. “I’m happy for our seniors – at this point, you want to earn another game and lengthen your career. And I’m proud of the team – I felt at times today we were very undisciplined, but we found away to win. At this point in the season, it’s ‘survive and advance.’ Hopefully we can learn a couple of things as we move forward, at least for one more day.”

Sophomore Charlotte Craddock opened the Tar Heel scoring in the ninth minute of play, sending a hard shot into the cage from the top of the circle to put UNC up for good. The goal was her team-high 21st of the season.

Carolina went up 2-0 in the 28th minute on a goal by freshman Emma Bozek, who sent a ball across the cage and past Stanford keeper Dulcie Davies for her sixth goal of the fall.

The Tar Heels made the lead 3-0 early in the second half on a goal by senior Jaclyn Gaudioso Radvany, who got her 10th score of the year on a pass from senior Kelsey Kolojejchick, who leads the nation in assists.

Stanford scored its only goal on a penalty corner in the 60th minute. On the Cardinal’s fourth and final corner of the game, sophomore Kelsey Harbin scored her fifth goal of the season on a ball from senior Becky Dru.

UNC added one more goal in the closing minutes, when Bozek sent a cross from the right side and junior Sinead Loughran deflected it in from the left.

For the game, UNC led 16-10 in shots and 6-4 in corners. Davies made four saves for Stanford, and sophomore goalkeeper Sassi Ammer had four for Carolina.

The win was Carolina’s 70th NCAA Tournament game in program history, all under Shelton, who holds the NCAA record for most tournament games coached.

Sunday’s game will be the third meeting of the season between UNC and ODU. Carolina has won both of the previous games, 3-2 in Chapel Hill on Sept. 14 and 3-1 at ODU on Oct. 26.

Tickets for the game are $5 for general admission, $3 for students and will be available at the Henry Stadium gate.
