North Carolina teammates dueling for US Soccer Award – awkwaaaaaaard

Written by Dill Pickle

As if North Carolina doesn’t have enough to worry about. The Tar Heels are on the verge of facing Stanford in the College Cup, yet there’s an internal battle that’s playing out simultaneously. North Carolina stars Crystal Dunn and Kealia Ohai have both been announced as finalists for US Soccer’s Young Female Athlete of the Year Award.

On the surface, you may not see a big deal; they’re teammates and friends, so either should be happy for the other. But think about this: have you ever showed up to a party wearing the exact outfit as your frenemy? Now think about doing it for an entire season! Yeah, there’s tension brewing alright. Oh, and that teammate Crystal is hugging in the pic above – yeah, NOT Kealia!

Here’s the tale of the tape between the two Tar Heel combatants:


MAJOR                      MINOR          NAME USED IN SENTENCE

Dunn: Sociology           Ballin’         Oh, you Dunn messed up!

Ohai:  Journalism        Ballin’          Oh, hi … bye.


Edge: Too close to call.
