Perhaps No. 2 ranked North Carolina was looking ahead to Friday's showdown against No. 3 ranked Maryland heading into Monday night's visit to tiny Davidson College. Whether it was distraction, or just a special team effort by an underdog, the Wildcats took full advantage to knock out one of the country's top teams.

The Tar Heels out-shot Davidson 16-3, but Davidson's final shot was the biggest, as a stunning long-range blast from sophomore forward Jake Keator in the 82nd minute proved to be the difference in a 1-0 Davidson victory on Monday night.

Here is Keator's game-winning goal:

Senior goalkeeper Chip Sanders made seven saves on the night to help the Wildcats score their biggest win of the season and improve to 6-6-2.

North Carolina fell to 11-2-1 on the season, and will need to rebound in time for Friday's match-up against fellow ACC power Maryland in a national-televised match (on ESPNU).

What did you think of Keator's goal? Think North Carolina can rebound and beat Maryland on Friday?
