Kiley Keating made eight saves in her first start for the Tigers.
No. 1 North Carolina 17, UMBC 6: Timmy Kelly (Calvert Hall) had a hat trick and the defending Division I champion Tar Heels (1-0) spoiled Ryan Moran's coaching debut by holding the Retrievers (0-1) to one goal in the first half.
North Carolina scored eight straight goals before UMBC's Austin Mitchell (Reservoir) scored with 2:50 left in the first half. The game was played at Cardinal Gibbons High in Raleigh, N.C., because of the water emergency in Orange County.
Salisbury 21, Methodist 2: Carson Kalama (Bel Air) had four goals and two assists to lead the Division III defending champion Sea Gulls past the visiting Monarchs in the season opener for both teams.
