WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– The UNCW women’s soccer team scored a pair of goals in each half and four different players found the net in a successful home opener, 4-2, over visiting Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Friday night at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

The Seahawks improved to 2-5-0 this season by winning their first game in the Courtyard Marriott Wilmington Invitational. UNCW meets Longwood in Sunday’s championship finale after the Lancers held on for a 4-3 nail biter over Elon in the tourney opener.

In Friday’s nightcap, the Seahawks dominated the game offensively, outshooting TAMCC by a wide 24-5 margin, but still had some tense moments late in the game before breaking away. TAMCC now stands 1-4-0 on the young season.

Junior midfielder Stephanie Bronson got Paul Cairney’s team off to a quick start by taking a pass from Katrina Guillou and beating TAMCC goalie Audrey Baldwin just 34 seconds into the contest for a quick 1-0 advantage.

The Seahawks increased the lead to 2-0 at 10:09 when Natalie Winslow sent a long pass to Maddie McCormick and the sophomore midfielder converted a one-on-one for her second strike of the season.

TAMCC, behind leading scoring Yvette Franco, scored with just under 15 minutes remaining in the first period to keep close at intermission. The speedy Franco took a ball at the top of the penalty area and found the net from 18 yards out to get the Islanders on the board.

In the second half, UNCW freshman Caroline McLain pushed the margin to 3-1 with her first career goal at 62:23. The rookie from Cary, N.C., raced down the right side, cut across the end line and stunned Baldwin from close range to give the Seahawks a two-goal cushion.

Junior Katie O’Connell hiked the lead to 4-1 by scoring at the 71:11 mark. Freshman Kennedy Ulrich was credited with an assist as the Seahawks recorded a season-high in scoring with their fourth goal.

Franco then closed out the scoring by notching her second goal of the game and the seventh of the season when she beat UNCW reserve keeper Caroline Huddy in a breakaway at 80:51.

Longwood 4, Elon 3: Longwood, 1-3-2, built a 2-0 lead in the first half and survived a late scare to edge Elon, 4-3, in the tournament opener. Freshman midfielder Amanda Spencer scored a hat trick for the Lancers, including the game-winner with 5:02 remaining to help the Lancers win for the first time this season. Elon, 3-1-1, outshot Longwood by a 17-15 count, but the Phoenix could not contain Spencer, who scored three times on five attempts.


WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– The UNCW volleyball team opened the Hilton Garden Inn Mayfaire UNCW Volleyball Classic with victories over North Carolina A&T (25-14, 25-10, 25-13) and UNC Asheville (25-21, 26-24, 23-25, 25-22) on Friday at Hanover Hall.

The Seahawks improved to 6-2 on the season with the two victories as they made their home debut for the 2013 season. UNCW returns to action in the Hilton Garden Inn Mayfaire UNCW Volleyball Classic Saturday with a single match against Western Carolina at 7:30 p.m.

Against the Aggies, senior Christi Laite tallied eight kills to lead a balanced Seahawks attack that saw UNCW team up to hit .284 for the match. Junior Morgan Kline chipped in six kills and did not commit an attack error in 11 total attempts for a .545 attack clip. Sophomore Victoria Phillips dished out 20 assist and freshman Alyssa Desjardins pitched in 10 while Desjardins and fellow freshman Morgan Owney tallied seven digs apiece to lead the Seahawks in that category.

Sophomore Aleena McDaniel tallied five kills for A&T, who was limited to a (-.138) hitting percentage for the match. Sophomore Ashley Johnson led all players with 12 digs.

UNCW never trailed in the first set, using a 13-3 run midway through the frame to stretch an 11-10 advantage into a 24-13 cushion on its way to a 25-14 triumph.

The Seahawks carried their momentum into the second set, tallying nine of the first 10 points of the frame on their way to a 25-10 victory and a 2-0 lead.

With the score tied at 5-all early in the fourth set, a kill by senior Courtney Porter sparked the Seahawks to a 20-8 spurt that gave UNCW a 25-13 win and the match.

Versus the Bulldogs, Kline tallied 16 kills on the strength of a .406 hitting percentage and Laite added 14 spikes to pace the Seahawks attack. Phillips dished out 25 assists and added 17 digs for her third double-double of the season while Desjardins dished out 23 helpers. Senior Haley Collins pitched in 18 digs and sophomore Meredith Peacock finished with eight kills and nine total blocks.

Sophomore Christine Lakatos notched 13 kills and senior Anna Moore tallied 11 for UNCA. Sophomore Katie Davis led all players with 40 assists and senior Rachel Wells recorded a game-high 22 digs.

UNCW posted a 25-21 victory in the opening set, tallying five of the final six points of the frame to pull away from the Bulldogs and record the four-point victory.

The Seahawks would take a back-and-forth second set that featured a total of 13 ties and four lead changes, 26-24, by using a kill from Desjardins and a Bulldog attack error to break a 24-all tie.

UNCA extended the match with a 25-23 victory in the third set, but the Seahawks rebounded to capture the match with a 25-22 victory in the fourth frame that saw UNCW build a 15-9 cushion midway through the frame and hold off the Bulldogs the rest of the way.


JOLIET, IL (AP) - NASCAR added Jeff Gordon to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field Friday, a stunning and unprecedented step in the fallout from at least two attempts to manipulate the results at the season-ending race at Richmond last weekend.

NASCAR Chairman Brian France expanded the field to 13 drivers for the first time since the format was implemented 10 years ago.

Front Row Motorsports asked for a deal from Penske Racing at Richmond and then helped make sure Penske's Joey Logano made the Chase field by having one of its drivers, David Gilliland, slow down, according to an Associated Press review of radio communications.

France said NASCAR could not determine a deal was made, but still believed the move was necessary and he placed both teams on probation the rest of the season.
