North Carolina did not let a rainy night dampen the play on the pitch Saturday as the Tar Heels defeated Elon in an exhibition, 3-0.

Nico Melo broke the ice in the 54th minute and Chipper Root chipped in two goals in the second half leading the Heels to victory.

The Exhibition was played in Greensboro. Carolina continues pre season play in Fort Wayne, Indiana next week with games against Michigan State and Indiana.
