Visiting Florida (0-1-1, 0-0 SEC) and No. 14 North Carolina (0-1-1, 0-0 ACC) recorded a 0-0 double overtime tie in front of a Fetzer Field crowd of 4,125.

It was the second overtime match in the 10-match series between the two teams and Friday’s result was the first tie. The only other overtime went to the Tar Heels 2-1 in front of a James G. Pressly record crowd of 5,222 on Oct. 11, 1998. Florida last recorded a tie in its final match of the 2010 season, as Florida and Duke tied 0-0 2OT in NCAA Second Round play.
