Speas goal puts Tar Heels over 49ers for NCAA soccer title

Monday, December 12, 2011

A soccer game can sometimes be decided by a single flash of brilliance. And that, as it turned out, was the only way No. 1-seed North Carolina would beat the unseeded Charlotte 49ers 1-0 in Sunday's College Cup NCAA men's soccer championship game at Regions Park. The Tar Heels won a national title with a splendid long-range goal from midfielder Ben Speas midway through the second half. (Raleigh News & Observer)
