Irish-UNC tie in rematch of soccer national championship

It was raining and it was a pre-season game.

But a record crowd of more than 3,400 fans showed up to see a rematch of last year's women's soccer national championship as Notre Dame hosted North Carolina at Alumni Field on Sunday.

It's the largest crowd ever to see a men's or women's soccer game at Notre Dame.

The game played like a national championship. The Irish went up just 6 minutes into the contest on an Amanda Cinalli goal.

But UNC came out in the 2nd half and scored two consecutive goals to take a 2-1 lead.

Notre Dame battled back and Kerri Hanks scored with 24 minutes left in the game to tie the game.

That's how it ended in a 2-2 tie.
