— Four goals in a span of 18 minutes in the second half led No. 4 North Carolina to a 4-0 victory over No. 13 Coastal Carolina Monday morning at Fetzer Field.

The match was originally scheduled for Sunday night, but the poor weather conditions in the area forced the game to be moved to Labor Day morning. The early start may have contributed to a sluggish start by both clubs, but midway through the second half, the Heels broke loose.

Tyler Engel scored his second game-winning goal in as many matches in the 68th minute to break the scoreless tie between the Tar Heels and Chanticleers.

Marco Sunol got the play started with a corner kick - his first ever at UNC - that Colton Storm reached with his head, sending a pass to Engel and he buried his point-blank shot into the net for a 1-0 lead.

Just over 10 minutes later, junior defender Jordan McCrary scored the first collegiate goal of his career at the 77:23 mark. Engel played a cross from the right flank that was pushed away by Coastal's keeper, however, the ball went directly to McCrary and he fired home a blast from 20 yards to the near post in the lower-left portion of the goal.

Things really opened up from their for the Tar Heels. A beautiful give-and-go from Glen Long and Alex Walters led to a third goal at 82:05. Long started the push, found Walters streaking down the center of the field. Unselfishly, Walters declined to shoot and sent a pass to the left side and Long finished to the far side for a 3-0 lead.

Raby George capped the scoring spree in the 86th minute with a deep finish from 30 yards. Omar Holness sent a pass to George and he chipped a shot that flicked off the cross bar into the back of the net for a 4-0 lead.

UNC (2-0) keeper Brendan Moore earned his second-straight clean sheet, and didn't even need to make a save in the victory.

In the 30th minute, Coastal's Ricky Garbanzo shook free of the Tar Heel back line and had a good look at goal, but he sailed his shot wide from inside 10 yards.

Later in the first half, a cross from Coastal nearly turned disastrous as Moore came off his line to grab the ball. He was unable to get a clean mitt on the pass and that allowed Pedro Ribeiro a wide open net to work with, but his shot went over the cross bar to keep the match scoreless.

Alex Olofson put a quality shot on goal for Carolina in the 43rd minute, but Coastal's Devin Cook made his only save of the match to keep the game scoreless at the intermission.

Coastal Carolina (1-1) was limited to only four shots, while Carolina had 10. The Heels scored on four of its six shots after intermission.

Carolina will face Notre Dame next Sunday at 12 p.m., on ESPNU in South Bend, Ind.
