— Senior goalkeeper Scott Goodwin made three saves as No. 9 seed North Carolina downed UMBC, 3-2, in a penalty shootout after the sides battled to a 0-0 draw.

Carolina advances to the Third Round for the fifth straight year and will host Fairleigh Dickinson on Sunday, Nov. 25 at a time to be determined.

The shootout victory is the sixth straight for the Tar Heels and senior goalkeeper Scott Goodwin has registered at least one save in each shootout, including three against UMBC.

The teams were unable to break through during the 90 minutes of regulation and a pair of 10-minute golden goal extra time periods so the match would be decided by penalties.

The shootout was the third straight for the Retrievers who captured the America East title by a 4-2 margin and advanced to the second round by beating Old Dominion 4-2 as well.

The shootout was the second in as many weeks for the Tar Heels after Carolina advanced to the ACC Championship with a 4-2 win against Virginia.

UMBC's Milo Kapor would take the first penalty and attempted to go right at goalkeeper Scott Goodwin who made a kick save to put Carolina in the driver's seat.

Cameron Brown converted for the Tar Heels before UMBC's Mamadou Kansaye tied the score at 1-1.

Martin Murphy was next up for the Tar Heels and pushed UNC back in front by a 2-1 margin before the Retrievers evened it up with a conversion by Liam Paddock.

Alex Walters then converted his penalty to put Carolina in front 3-2 before Goodwin made another stunning save. The senior goalkeeper made a dive to his left and stopped Kadeem Dacres from leveling the score.

David Walden had a chance to push the Tar Heels through and struck a good shot but UMBC's Phil Saunders was able to make the save and keep UMBC alive.

Goodwin would rise to the occasion once more as he made a diving stop to his right of Dave Vaeth's attempt to push Carolina into the round of 16.

Carolina controlled possession throughout the contest but were unable to break through a stout UMBC defense.

The best chance of the night for either side came in the 61st minute when Cameron Brown nearly put Carolina in front, 1-0.

Danny Garcia fed a through ball from 25 yards out to a cutting Jordan McCrary on his left. McCrary tracked down the ball three yards from the end line and hit a low cross that found Brown near the corner of the six-yard box.

Brown hit a shot in stride but UMBC goalkeeper Phil Saunders was in perfect position to turn the chance away.

Less than three minutes later the Retrievers would have a chance of their own after a foul was committed from 35 yards out. Kapor struck a free kick that sailed over the Tar Heel defense but Goodwin was in position to make the save.

The shutout gives Goodwin 16 for the year and 40 for his career as he continues to reset the Carolina record books.

Goodwin and the Tar Heels will host Fairleigh Dickinson on Sunday, Nov. 25 after the Knights were able to knock off St. John's (1-0) and Saint Louis (2-1, 2OT) on the road to advance to the round of 16.

The last time Carolina took on Fairleigh Dickinson was in the quarterfinal round of the 2001 NCAA Tournament, a match UNC won 3-2 in triple overtime en route to the program's first national title.
