No.14 Clemson took down No.7 UNC 5-3 in PKs, with Alex Meinhard sealing the deal for the Tigers. Clemson is now 4-6-1 all-time in ACC Championship contests, with this being Noonan’s third win.
The game went to PKs after a 1-1 to finish through 120 minutes of play. In the 49th minute of the matchup, UNC’s Quenzi Huerman found the back of the net on a ball off the post. It gave the Tar Heels a 1-0 lead, but not a lead they would hold.
In the 83rd minute, Clemson’s Ousmane Sylla responded. Sylla hit a nice strike from outside the box that curved into the top right of the cage. It was a huge moment for the Tigers and one that allowed them to win in PKs.
Clemson is now waiting to find out their NCAA Tournament placement on Monday at 1 p.m. on NCAA.com.
