North Carolina goes to NWSL final with 2-0 win over Chicago

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Jessica McDonald and Samantha Mewis each scored, and North Carolina beat the Chicago Red Stars 2-0 on Tuesday night in a National Women's Soccer League semifinal that was moved because of Hurricane Florence.

The Courage (18-1-6) will play the defending champion Portland Thorns for the NWSL title on Saturday, also on Portland's home field.

The semifinal between the Courage and Red Stars (9-6-10) was originally set for Sunday at North Carolina's home in Cary. The team dedicated the victory to the people back home affected by the storm.
