Sarah Dacey scored from the right edge of the crease with 2: 04 remaining as No. 2 North Carolina edged top-ranked and three-time defending national champion Maryland, 10-9, yesterday in Chapel Hill, N.C.

The Terrapins (0-2), who had won 57 of their previous 58 games before this season, hadn't lost more than one game in an entire season since 1993.

The Tar Heels (2-0), who never trailed, held a 9-7 lead with 12 minutes remaining, but Cathy Nelson and Quinn Carney scored back-to-back goals in a three-minute stretch as the Terps tied the game with 4: 53 left. North Carolina answered two minutes later when Erin McGinnis set up Dacey for the game-winner off a free position.
