CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Sophomore attackman Doug Knight scored four second-half goals as No. 2 Virginia beat No. 7 North Carolina, 15-12, yesterday before 2,861 at Klockner Stadium.

Down 11-10 with 10 minutes remaining, the Cavaliers (8-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored four straight goals for the victory. Last Saturday, Virginia also used a four-goal run in the fourth quarter to down Maryland.

It was Virginia's second win in nine tries against the Tar Heels, who have lost five of their first 10 games for the first time in two decades.

North Carolina (5-5, 1-2) dominated every category, outshooting

the Cavaliers 53-41, winning the ground-ball battle 59-38 and controlling 18 of 30 faceoffs. Midfielder Ousmane Greene took a feed from Mark Phillips to give the Tar Heels an 11-10 lead four minutes into the fourth quarter.

Facing their first deficit in the game, the Cavaliers answered a minute later when Knight fired a 7-yard shot past goalkeeper Rocco D'Andraia. Virginia scored three more times in 3 1/2 minutes, including two from Knight.

Virginia goalkeeper Court Durling made 23 saves. The Cavaliers held the Tar Heels scoreless in five extra-man opportunities.
