Kealia Ohai scored at 5:53 of the second overtime to lift North Carolina to a 1-0 victory against top-seeded Stanford in semifinals of the NCAA Division I College Cup on Friday night. The Tar Heels (14-5-3), making their 26th appearance in the College Cup semis in 31 years, will go for its record 21st women's soccer title against Penn State on Sunday. The Nittany Lions (21-3-2) beat Florida State 2-1 in overtime in the other semifinal. The loss by defending national champion Stanford (21-2-1) was the first for goalie Emily Oliver. On the winning goal, Crystal Dunn eluded the Cardinal's Alina Garciamendez with some fancy footwork in Stanford territory after taking a midfield pass from Katie Bowen. Dunn slid a perfect pass to Ohai, who was open on the right side and beat Oliver with a shot off the far left post and into the net. Oliver, who finished with 10 saves, had made a number of outstanding stops as North Carolina outshot Stanford 20-4 - including 6-0 in the two overtime sessions. Adelaide Gay had five saves and improved her record to 12-3-1 for the Tar Heels, who are now 24-2 in national semifinal games. Stanford was making its fifth straight trip to the College Cup and had reached the finals the last three years, beating Duke last year for its first title.
