Rock Hill's Northwestern High School Graduate, Enzo Martinez, already on the list of potential Players of the Year, helped lead his UNC Tar Heels into the championship game against in-state opponent UNC Charlotte.

UNC was behind UCLA near the end of the game, "You keep looking at the clock and checking it as it runs down," said Schuler (UNC All-American Billy Schuler). "But you know you’ve got to find (a goal). But then it gets to 10 minutes, eight minutes … Then Enzo had a rip.".....
and Schuler followed up and tied the game 2-2 with 5 minutes remaining in regulation. The Heels then won the game on penalty kicks after no more goals were scored in regulation or overtime.

The championship game will be played on Sunday and will be televised on ESPNU.
