Documentary spotlights UNC’s ‘Road to Redemption’ for perfect women’s lacrosse title season

By R.L. Bynum

You can relive North Carolina’s amazing undefeated run to the 2022 NCAA women’s lacrosse championship in the documentary “Road to Redemption,” which is available on YouTube.

The UNC Hussman School of Media and Journalism production, in conjunction with UNC Athletics, includes interviews with Coach Jenny Levy and numerous players as well as highlights of key games on the Tar Heels’ way to finishing off a perfect 22–0 season.

The redemption, of course, was defeating Boston College 12–11 in the NCAA final after losing to the Eagles in the NCAA semifinals the previous two years. UNC players had only endured NCAA tournament heartbreak before last season, and never a national championship.

In the title game, goalkeeper Taylor Moreno made 11 saves and Sam Geiersbach, who single-handedly rallied UNC to a 15–14 semifinal win over Northwestern, had a hat trick.

The semifinal comeback from eight goals down with 10 minutes left will go down as one of the greatest comebacks in Carolina sports history.

It was UNC’s fifth title-game appearance and third national championship but the first unbeaten season. It came after the Tar Heels beat Boston College for their sixth consecutive ACC Tournament title.
