CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Senior attackers Stacey Morlang and Kristin Warnock scored three goals each as No. 6 Loyola upset third-ranked North Carolina, 10-9, yesterday in women's lacrosse at Fetzer Field.

Senior goalkeeper Tricia Dabrowski anchored the Greyhounds' defense, making 13 saves and getting four ground balls in the win.

After taking a 10-7 on a tally by Warnock midway through the second half, the Greyhounds effectively killed the clock for the final 15 minutes, holding the ball on offense for 12 minutes.

Leading 6-4 at halftime, Loyola stretched its second-half lead to three goals three times.

Morlang added her third goal in the second 30 minutes, and Warnock had two of her three goals after halftime.

Carolina pulled to within 7-6 on a goal by Lindsay Stone in the fourth minute of the second half, but Loyola scored twice to bump the lead to 9-6. The Tar Heels hung tough, cutting the lead to 9-7 on another goal by Stone, but Warnock scored with 14:03 left in the game to re-establish the lead at three midway through the second half.

Brooke Young and Stone's fifth goal of the game were not enough as the Greyhounds held on for the win.
