No. 6 FSU Soccer Downs Dartmouth 5-0 In NCAA Opening Round.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In front of the largest crowd to ever watch an NCAA Tournament game at Florida State (1003), the sixth-ranked Seminoles exploded for four second half goals as they defeated Ivy League champion Dartmouth (9-6-2) 5-0. The five goals were the most ever scored in an NCAA Tournament game by FSU as the Seminoles moved to 4-0 all-time in NCAA Tournament openers.

"We opened the game up tonight because we came here to win not to look good," said Dartmouth head coach Ben Landis. "We didn't come her to look good and lose narrowly. We were here to win. Things got opened up when we tried to do that. Their athleticism certainly showed through."

For the first 45 minutes, the Big Green held a Seminole offense averaging 2.25 goals a game and 2.66 goals per game in the last 16 matches to just one goal but in a scene reminiscent of FSU's first ever NCAA game, Florida State came out on fire in the second half as three different Seminoles accounted for four goals, three of which came in a span of 5:48.

The five goals were the most ever allowed by Dartmouth in their 15 NCAA Tournament games, which includes matches versus North Carolina in 1998 and Santa Clara in 2001. Both of those teams went on to win the National Championship those years. The five goals were also the most Dartmouth had given up this season.

"We started out not really playing as well as we could," said McKenzie. "In the second half we were a totally different team offensively and defensively. The way we played in the second half was great and it was fun to have my first game in the NCAA Tournament be like this."

Junior Camie Bybee scored two goals as she became the first Seminole to ever score multiple goals in a NCAA Tournament game and took over the career lead with four postseason goals. Jez Ratliff and Leah Gallegos each recorded two assists moving them both into a tie for first with three career NCAA Tournament assists.

The Seminole defense recorded their school-record ninth shutout of the year and junior Joy McKenzie posted a clean sheet for the seventh time moving her within a half a shutout of the single season record. This is the ninth time in 13 games that FSU has held an opponent without a goal.

"The defense was amazing again tonight," said McKenzie. "Their ability to contain balls from getting through and stopping plays before they even develop makes my job so easy. The credit doesn't just go to the back four though. All 10 players on this team are defending and nine shutouts this year is proof of that."

"Joy (McKenzie) wasn't tested too much except for late in the game when we tried to save our legs and had a whole different cast of personnel on the field," said Baker. "She and the defense did a great job. I told Joy that she did a great job in her first ever NCAA Tournament game. Regardless of how the game was unfolding I wanted to give her those 90 minutes tonight and she had a wonderful effort."

The Tribe's four second half goals equaled a mark set in the team's first-ever NCAA appearance against Jacksonville in 2000. Freshmen Julia Schnugg, Rachel McDowell and India Trotter joined Bybee by scoring a goal in the second half, which was the first time in FSU postseason history that three freshmen scored in a single game. Leading goal scorer Gallegos was held without a goal is still one shy of tying the single season record but as her teammates proved she isn't the only player that can be a threat to opposing teams.

"It is exciting to see so many teammates score tonight," said Gallegos. "I believe on any day anyone on this team is capable of scoring and eight of our ten starters have scored in the last 10 games coming into tonight. There is so much talent on this team and it was great to see people step up to the challenge in a big game like this."

The loss was the first for the Big Green in 10 games and moved FSU to 13-3-1 since starting the year at 1-4. This is just the third FSU team to ever record 14 wins in a season and the Tribe is just one victory away from equaling the mark for most victories in a year.

"I would like to compliment Dartmouth on the way they played tonight. I thought they did an exceptional job in the first half of keeping the ball and making us work without the ball. We were fortunate to be up a goal early," said head coach Patrick Baker who improved to 6-3 in the NCAA Tournament as FSU's head coach. "They are a fine compliment for the Ivy League and are a true champion.

"As the game wore on I think our speed, endurance and athleticism took over a little bit. We challenged our kids at halftime, some individually and some collectively and I think that showed in the second half."

As effective as FSU was in the second half, it was Schnugg's goal in the 10th minute that turned out to be the game-winner. Defender Teresa Rivera made a great run up the left side line and fed Gallegos the ball. The sophomore sent it across the face of the net and right on to the foot of a wide open Schnugg standing in front of an empty goal.

"T (Teresa Rivera) did a great job of pushing the ball up from the back up to Leah (Gallegos) and she did a great job getting the ball in front of the goal," said Schnugg. "I just needed to finish it off. It was open and I put it away. We have been working a lot on bringing the ball up from the back and I am just glad I could get the first goal of the night."

"I thought the first goal was crucial," said Baker. "It was a great sequence and Julia (Schnugg) stepped up. She has been fairly close as of late but to step up and hit one early was great."

The Seminoles couldn't add to their lead in the first half as Dartmouth remained within striking distance as the teams went to the locker room.

"At halftime we came into the locker room with a lot of confidence. I thought we played with them really well," said Dartmouth senior Janet Light. "We came into the game and we weren't sure what we were going to find. We were expecting a good team and they were a very good team. We definitely had a fair amount of possession. We wanted to go at them in the second half."

As much as Dartmouth wanted to attack and play for the win in the second 45, it was the Tribe who came out looking to build on their lead. Just 12 minutes into the period Gallegos gutted the Dartmouth defense with a ball straight down the middle of the pitch and right in stride to a streaking Schnugg. The freshman carried the ball into the box where goalie Anne Marbarger was charging. The keeper was able to just slide at Schnugg's feet and stop the breakaway opportunity.

Six minutes later the Tribe would capitalize. The goal came on a poor clearance by the Big Green defense that was due to Schnugg's pressure. The Alamo, CA native charged the defender causing her clearance to go way into the air but barely outside the 18. Bybee was there waiting for the ball to come down and she knocked her header shot over the keeper and in at the far post.

"I thought Camie's (Bybee) was the one that put us in a great position. It gave us the cushion and from there we started to play like we are capable of playing and that was exciting to see. The goals then just continued to come."

The goals did begin to come and at an alarming rate for Dartmouth. Within six minutes starting at the 71 minute mark, FSU had gone from a 2-0 lead to 5-0 ahead. The third goal came off a deflected Gallegos shot. The ball caromed off a DC defender and ricocheted to Trotter. The freshman took one touch through the defense and scored at the far post.

Three minutes later Oklahomans Ratliff and Bybee combined to put FSU in front 4-0. Ratliff made a great run down the right side and sent a long pass through the middle of the field and about 22 yards from goal. On its way to Bybee, Schnugg stepped over the pass, holding the Dartmouth defense for long enough that Bybee could get a touch. Her first touch split the defense right down the middle and she stuck the goal at the far post past the charging keeper.

"I saw Jez coming down the side and with her pace I knew she was going to get a good cross off," said Bybee. "Julia stepped over the ball and I saw it coming. I some how beat the defender and the keeper charged. I put it in the right corner."

"Camie tries that move all the time in practice and it never works," said Baker. "I could tell it was coming from seeing Camie play enough. It was set up beautifully for that and as soon as she rounded her Camie was able to tuck the keeper and that showed a lot of composure."

The last goal of the evening came just 1:33 later and it was started by a great Amber Tollefson pass to Ratliff on the left side end line. The junior used her pace to turn the corner and fired a shot that was deflected across the goal and right to a wide-open McDowell. The freshman was all alone and tapped in the first goal of her career.

"I was really nervous about hitting it over. It felt like it was in slow motion because I was concentrating really hard on just getting it on frame," said McDowell. "It was a great ball by Jez (Ratliff). It was a great run by Jez. Pretty much, it was all Jez and I just toed it in. It is always exciting to get your first collegiate goal no matter when it comes. What made it so special for me was that three freshmen (Trotter, Schnugg and McDowell) all got their first ever NCAA Tournament goals on the same night."

The Seminoles advance to face Auburn (14-3-3) in the second round of the Tallahassee regional. This is third straight year that the Tigers and Seminoles will face off in the NCAA Tournament. Last year FSU moved into the round of 16 after a 2-1 win over the Tigers in Tallahassee. In 2001, Florida State opened the NCAA Tournament with a 1-0 win over Auburn at Clemson, SC. Both times FSU has moved into the round of 16, the win has come against an SEC school (Florida in 2000 and Auburn in 2002).

"On paper, these were the two teams most people thought were going to advance. I am sure they feel there is some unfinished business because when they looked at the scoreboard during the national anthem and saw the 2002 Sweet 16 banner, that win last year was one of the steps for us," said Baker. "I am sure they feel it is fitting that they are back here in Tallahassee in position to put themselves in the round of 16."

HOW SWEET IT IS! No. 6 FSU Advances Past Auburn 2-1 In Double Overtime Win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Booking trip number three to the Sweet 16 was the toughest yet for the sixth-ranked Florida State soccer team. The Tribe needed 101 minutes before sophomore Leah Gallegos notched her single season record 17th goal sending FSU (15-7-1) to the round of 16 for the third time in the last four seasons. The 2-1 victory over No. 16 Auburn (14-4-3) was the first overtime postseason match in Florida State history but it was the second golden goal win of the year for the Tribe. The Seminoles under head coach Patrick Baker are now 7-1-8 all-time in extra time.

"It is a credit to coach (Patrick) Baker, his staff and our whole team and how hard we work," said Amber Tollefson. "It is a special thing. There are only 16 teams still playing and that is amazing to me. All the hard work has accumulated into this postseason. It is showing as I think we are playing our best soccer now. Not many people can say they have been a part of a team that has gone to the Sweet 16 in three of the last four years."

The win moved FSU to 7-3 all-time in the NCAA Tournament and set up a Round of 16 meeting with sixth-seeded West Virginia (17-3-2) next weekend. Senior co-captain Tollefson had a goal and an assist and Gallegos notched the 24th of her career in the victory. The loss ended the Tiger's second straight bid to make the school's first Sweet 16.

"In the past we have made it to the Sweet 16 and that is the standard that has been set," said Tollefson. "We played a really challenging Auburn team today but we wanted to take that next step. Auburn gave us a run for our money. To get back to the Sweet 16 is so special and a credit to this team."

For just the first time since October 4 Florida State entered the locker room trailing at half as they gave up just their second goal in the first half in more than six weeks. But Tollefson came out and equalized the game in record-setting fashion. Just 34 seconds into the half she made it 1-1. Tollefson then helped FSU win the game as well just over a minute into the second overtime. Her assists, the 23 of her career, which is a new FSU record, on Gallegos' record-setting 17th goal was the difference in the game.

"I would like to congratulate Auburn on a wonderful season and a wonderful game," said Baker. "I thought we started off very well and had two great chances to be up 1-0 if not 2-0. Then somewhere in the middle, about 20 or 25 minutes in, the game started to change in favor of them (Auburn). That trend continued with a good goal by Sarah Steinman who is a very special player.

"I thought at halftime we came out and set a different type of tone. Amber (Tollefson), our lone playing senior, was brilliant to score the tying goal and then get the game-winning assist. I can't say enough about her as a person and a player and the individual effort she gave today. This is a compliment to our team. Kelly Rowland, Katie Beal, Marion (Cagle) and T (Teresa Rivera) in the back, Joy (McKenzie) was exceptional in goal. It was a great, great effort and we are very happy to be advancing to the Sweet 16."

This was the third straight year FSU and Auburn have crossed paths in the NCAA Tournament and it is the third time the Tribe has won. Florida State has now recorded five straight wins over the Tigers with the last two coming with a berth in the Round of 16 on the line. Of the 297 teams playing Division I soccer, Florida State is now one of just eight teams to advance to the third round three times in the last four years. Only Florida State, UCLA, Portland, Santa Clara, North Carolina, Texas A&M, Connecticut and Penn State have accomplished that feat with UCLA vying to join that group.

"This was such a great game. It is a shame anyone had to lose," said Auburn head coach Karen Hoppa. "I think Auburn and FSU are two teams that both deserve to be in the Sweet 16. Congratulations to coach Baker. He has a phenomenal team and they played a great game. I think we gave them a great game."

Florida State opened the game in impressive fashion as they came close to scoring twice in the first eight minutes. Tollefson hit the crossbar on a shot from a tough angle at the five minute mark and the rebound shot by Camie Bybee was blocked on its way to the net.

Three minutes later Bybee sent Julia Schnugg down the left side of the pitch by playing a great diagonal ball. Schnugg collected the pass and was in behind the defense and all alone with second team All-SEC keeper Megan Rivera. Gallegos was making a back post run at the same time but Schnugg's shot to the far post was blocked by the junior keeper.

"What we had been telling our players is that to beat Megan Rivera you just can't put it right at her," said Baker. "You are going to have to score something pretty dynamic."

The Tribe continued the attack until the middle of the period when Auburn started to win more of the 50/50 balls and do a better job of dictating the play. In the 30th minute they were rewarded with a goal.

The ball was played over the top of the FSU defense and into Steinman, the 2002 SEC Player of the Year. The junior's first touch went to goal and beat the defense. She fired a blast at the near post upper corner that keeper Joy McKenzie got a hand on but couldn't save.

"Marion (Cagle) had Steinman touch tight but the ball took a bad hop and she couldn't clear it out," said McKenzie. "It came out right to her feet at the top of the 18. I made the decision to go. I went, I got a hand on it but it wasn't enough to keep it out of the net."

"I have to give credit to Auburn because that was a great three front," said Cagle. "Our defense has done an outstanding job this year and that goes from the frontrunners all the way to the back. I just knew if we played like we are capable, they wouldn't get in behind us again."

It was the first time the Seminoles had fallen behind 1-0 that early in a game since September 26, a span of 50 days and 13 games. The last time the Tribe was staring a 1-0 deficit in the face before the clock hit 30:00 was September 26 when Maryland scored five minutes in a game in which FSU came back to win by a 2-1 score.

"After they scored that goal I was shocked. I don't remember falling behind in the first half since we were at Virginia," said Rowland. "We came together as a defense and said we needed to pick it up and I think that happened."

"This is the first time we have gone into half in as long as I can remember knowing we are losing and need to do something to change the complexion of the game," said Cagle. "There was no doubt in my mind that this team would respond. Obviously we did by scoring a minute into the half."

The last time FSU went into half trailing, they came out and scored two goals in just over 13 minutes versus Virginia. They didn't need nearly that long this time around. As soon as the opening whistle blew, there seemed to be a different energy level for FSU.

"Sometimes you hope you paint the right picture at halftime. The last time we were down at the half was Virginia and I went back to that," said Baker. "We came out of the gate in that second half and scored two very good goals. I didn't think we would score in 34 seconds but I was very happy we did.

"Right from the get-go there was a different edge for us. Actually, India (Trotter) did an unbelievable job and that was great individual effort. She solved two defenders on the dribble, picked her head up and flighted a great ball to the back post. With our wide players, we feel like we can get around the corner."

The goal came on a great piece of individual brilliance by Trotter. The freshman sent a great cross from the far right side of the pitch that just bent away from Rivera's out stretched arms. Tollefson jumped with Rivera and opportunistically knocked the service on frame but it caught the post and bounced out. The senior followed up her own rebound and put the goal in past a sliding defender.

"We won the ball initially on the sideline and I saw Amber (Tollefson) on the back post," said Trotter. "Coach kept telling us repeatedly at halftime that if we just switch the ball, play to feet then we could get a goal. I tried to get an early service in and Amber did a great job of tucking it."

"India had an amazing individual effort on the first goal and I was just glad to get it. It put us back to even and we could settle down and play our game," said Tollefson.

From that point a physical game became even more so as both teams were fighting for their tournament lives. The game was do or die and both teams played just like they were well aware of that.

"It was hit after hit today and it was very physical," said Cagle. "That is the second time we have faced a three front and we knew we had to stay tough. We didn't want to let anything get behind us and we were unfortunate on the first goal. We responded like true champions."

"Just thinking that this would be our last game, everyone had that thought," said Tollefson. "We didn't want it to end today. We didn't want this to be our last game and I think that is what caused a renewed energy."

Auburn's best chance to avoid overtime and extend its season came in the 63rd minute and it was Steinman again who looked to get the go-ahead goal. The Lilburn, GA native stepped over the ball to hold the defender and create some space for herself. As soon as she got a little daylight she fired a shot that a divining McKenzie blocked and then smothered before the Tigers got a chance at the rebound.

That save was one of just three McKenzie was forced to make. After the first half goal, she held Auburn off the board for 70:56 to record her 13th win of the season. That moves her into second place for the most wins by a Seminole keeper in one campaign.

"I am always hard on myself right after goals are scored. I just don't like giving them up," said McKenzie. "I just keep telling myself over and over that goals happen. I have a defense that will help me out and I have faith in them. I also have faith in the fact that I will give everything I have to stop that from happening."

Neither team could get much going in the first overtime period as both squads registered just one shot with neither being put on frame. As the second OT period began the Seminole players talked about being full of emotions but confident. They had lost just one OT game in their careers and the only win they had in OT in 2003 came on the same field on a Sunday versus another SEC squad in Ole Miss.

"That was heart attack worthy," said McKenzie. "There were a lot of things going through my head. I wanted someone to stick it. Of course the shootout was back there somewhere as well. I was hoping it wasn't going to come to that. It was crazy amount of emotions and everyone was so hyped up. We knew we were going to get our chances in the run of play."

Gallegos, who had five shots in the previous 100 minutes, has been the Tribe's go to player all year long when it comes to scoring goals but didn't register one in the 5-0 win over Dartmouth. She was being taken out of her game by a stingy Auburn defense that shutout 12 opponents in 2003 and that had allowed two or more goals just twice all season.

"They (Auburn) were an extremely physical and talented team and that made things a lot harder," said Gallegos. "I couldn't get past them individually on too many occasions. I had to change my style of play and look to distribute the ball more rather than taking on players."

"Coming out of halftime, Leah walked by me and I told her 'you are going to be there'," said Baker. "We said a lot of times that if we keep putting things in the box and in front of the net something will happen. Amber was a huge factor today. Leah was a huge factor today with the game-winner. If Leah is playing well and we are finding her at feet or into space, we are probably doing what we need to be because she means so much to our attack."

Those two players were the difference just 1:04 into the second overtime. Gallegos started the play with a shot that was blocked at the top of the 18 on the right side. Tollefson picked it up, dribbled past a defender and got endline. She launched a cross that was drawn far enough away from the goal mouth that Rivera couldn't come out but right on to the head of Gallegos.

"I just remember that the ball was a rebound off a shot and it was spinning backwards," said Tollefson. "I remember reading the flight of the ball and knowing how it would bounce. I called Jez off and my defender was side on. I just clipped it in and Leah was in amazing position."

"The goal kind of hit the side of my head and slid a little," said Leah Gallegos. "What a beautiful cross by Amber (Tollefson). It got frustrating having so many good chances and not putting them away. You have to put the frustration aside and keep going at it. The whole team pushed one another. Getting the goal was a big relief."

The 17th goal of the season for Gallegos tied the record set by Cindy Schofield in 2001. Gallegos now has more goals than any player if FSU history in their freshman and sophomore seasons. It was the sixth straight golden goal for Florida State that has come at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"The thing that makes this goal special isn't the record it's that it sent us to the Sweet 16 and kept our season alive," said Gallegos. "It is special for me because it means Amber (Tollefson) and (Kristin) Boyce get to go to another Sweet 16."

ELITE EIGHT HERE WE COME! No. 6 FSU Beats No. 9 WVU 3-2 In 2OT.

MORGANTOWN, WV - When head coach Patrick Baker took over the Florida State soccer program in 1999, he dreamed of days like this. After just one year on the job, the 15-year head coach had Florida State playing in the Sweet 16. Since then the Tribe has gone back two more times but they hadn't taken that next step...yet. That all changed Sunday afternoon in Morgantown, WV as FSU downed the sixth-seeded Mountaineers (17-4-2) in double overtime 3-2. The sixth-ranked Seminoles (16-7-1) used a 110th minute golden goal by sophomore Leah Gallegos, her record-setting 18th of the season, to advance to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the first time in program history.

"I shared this with the team last year," said Florida State head coach Patrick Baker. "I have always wanted to spend Thanksgiving with the team. For 15 straight years I have been going to ODP (Olympic Development Program) Inter-regional Camps across the United States that weekend. You would go there, and especially at FSU, we had been knocked out of the NCAA Tournament the weekend before. You can't put into words what it means to be able to spend that day together because we will be playing for the right to go to the College Cup that weekend."

"This is a huge leap for this program and this team," said Amber Tollefson. "We worked so hard today and to win a game in the last 20 seconds, it doesn't get much better than that. We fought and we got to the Elite Eight and that is so special."

Gallegos, who had scored the golden goal versus Auburn in the round of 32, sent FSU to the Elite Eight just 22 seconds before heading into a shootout. The goal, her 18th, set a new single-season record for Florida State and she also set the mark for the most game-winning goals in a season with her seventh. She is the first Seminole to ever record three golden goals in a career and the first ever to notch golden goals in back-to-back games. Her 18 goals are just two behind Lindsay Tarpley for the ACC lead.

"As soon as Leah (Gallegos) got the touch, I knew we were going to win it," said Baker. "I look up at the clock and there is 22 seconds left and we have advanced to the Elite Eight. It is just very special. I am excited for our players and happy for the program."

"The only reason that goal is special to me is because it sends us into the Elite Eight," said Gallegos. "I still have another game with my teammates. That is so much more important than a record."

The win represents another step forward for a team that has risen to prominence in just the last five years. On top of being just one of eight teams still playing soccer, the win set an FSU record for the most victories in program history (16). It was Florida State's first ever win in the NCAA Tournament outside of the state of Florida and the three goals were the first FSU has ever scored in a Sweet 16 match.

Sunday's game also saw Florida State records for most points in a season (174), goals in a season (58) shots (412) and shots on goal (182) all fall. The team also equaled the record for assists in a season with 58. Eight different players have now scored goals in the NCAA Tournament and 10 different players have recorded an assist or a goal.

"We don't have a lot of players that are on the Hermann Award list or who get looked at for the U-21 and U-19 National Teams but we have some special players," said Baker. "The biggest thing is we win as a team. We won today as a team. We won against Auburn as a team. We don't have the personality players a lot of others have but we have a team. We understand our roles and have a great balance. We are the truest definition of the word team. That is exciting about this group. We aren't relying on one player to step up and be successful although Leah has done that the last two times out but she is being complimented by so many players around her."

"It is great to statistically help the team but this was a complete team effort today," said Jez Ratliff, who is the first Seminole to ever record two assists in an NCAA Tournament game for FSU and she has now done it twice. "We had different people step up in different roles today. Everybody helped and everybody's effort made the difference."

The win was also Florida State's eighth in four trips to the NCAA Tournament. The Seminoles NCAA Tournament winning percentage jumped to .727 with the win, which is the fourth-best all-time winning percentage in NCAA Tournament history.

"I give credit to Florida State," said West Virginia head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. "They finished their chances and the overtime game-winner was a beautiful goal. They have a great team."

Sunday's Sweet 16 match was fairly even statistically. The Mountaineers and Seminoles each took 20 shots and committed 13 fouls. Florida State led in shots on goal (11 to 6) and corner kicks (10 to 8). West Virginia keeper Lana Bannerman was forced to make eight saves while FSU's Joy McKenzie made four grabs.

"The game was similar to the Auburn game," said Baker. "There were portions of time when they had the game and portions of time when we had the game. That is what is going to happen in the Sweet 16. There is going to be give and take. You have to be good. You have to be lucky."

Florida State couldn't have asked for a better start than they had versus West Virginia in the first 45 minutes. The Tribe, who had never scored a goal in the third round of the NCAA's, netted two in the first half. Freshman Kelly Rowland put FSU in front 1-0 in the 14th minute and Katie Beal converted a penalty kick in the 22nd minute.

"I thought we prepared very well for this team. We had excellent training sessions all week," said Baker. "To be up1-0 and then go up 2-0 is a credit to this team. I am so happy for our seniors that they can be a part of this in their final year."

The Mountaineers looked to break on top first as they had a great chance in the 12th minute. Hermann Award semifinalist Chrissie Abbott got a look at the Florida State goal from the top of the box. Her blast hit off the crossbar and was cleared out.

"You got to be good. You got to be lucky," said Baker. "They hit the frame. We missed two 1-on-1's. Those are chances. You have to have good goalkeeping and you have to have a little bit of luck. It is a game of opportunities."

Just two minutes after Abbott banged one off the iron, the Seminoles mounted their first serious attack. On their first corner kick of the game, surprise starter Rachel McDowell drove a service to the back post. Ratliff, who lost the ball in the sun for a moment, located the service, latched on to it and headed the ball back into the middle.

"I was just hoping I would get it in because I hadn't been taking great corners as of late," said McDowell. "Coach told me to aim for the six and that is what I did. I had confidence Kelly (Rowland) or Camie (Bybee) would get on it. I floated it in and Jez (Ratliff) and Kelly did a great job."

Ratliff's header went right back into the center of the box where Rowland was sitting and waiting to knock it past Bannerman.

"It came off a corner kick that Rachel (McDowell) drove over everyone," said Ratliff. "It was hard to locate at first because of the sun but once it came inside I just tried to put it back across the face of the goal. I knew Kelly (Rowland) and Camie (Bybee) would be making their runs there. Kelly got up and put in the header at the back post."

"It came off a corner and it went to Jez (Ratliff)," said Rowland. "She had a great header that went right to my head. I just tried to knock it home."

The goal was the fifth of the season for the rookie defender. Four of the five have some in the postseason. She had three in the ACC Tournament and this was her first ever in the NCAA's. Four of the five Rowland goals have also come via headers.

"I just think on set pieces if we put it up there, either me or Camie (Bybee) will latch on to any ball," said Rowland. "We are really confident right now in the box and try to keep up that mentality."

Rowland's goal was also the fourth by an FSU freshmen in the NCAA Tournament. Half of the Florida State players that have scored in the NCAA's have been freshmen and the rookie class has accounted for a third of FSU's points in their three NCAA Tournament games.

"Coming into the postseason, everyone warned the freshmen that the ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament were huge stages," said Rowland. "I think that excited our class and we have stepped it up since then. Every one of us has found a way to contribute a goal, an assist a pass, something. But we are the only ones. The team has raised the level and our class has just tried to match that."

Less than eight minutes later the Seminoles were back in line to add to their lead. Julia Schnugg sent a great ball right to Gallegos' feet in the center of the West Virginia box and about 14 yards from goal. The sophomore was taken down before she could get a shot off and FSU was awarded its first penalty kick of the season. Katie Beal stepped up and drove it past a diving Bannerman.

"I felt pretty comfortable taking the PK," said Beal. "We have been practicing them almost everyday so I felt good stepping up and taking it. That was the easy part. Julia (Schnugg) played in a great ball and Leah got taken down. I just stepped up and tucked it in."

West Virginia had staged just one come from behind win all season and all three of their losses came when their opponent scored first. After falling 2-0 behind at home, WVU started to turn up the pressure on the FSU defense.

"I thought we started the game playing pretty well," said Baker. "When we went up 2-0, I thought we relaxed a little bit. Give West Virginia credit they picked their game up."

In the 38th minute West Virginia's Ashley Weimer took a chance and lofted a shot on goal from almost 40 yards out. The shot began to dip and caught the crossbar. Two minutes later Abbott challenged McKenzie again. Her shot from 25 yards away was punched away on a big time save by the junior.

Just before the half the Mountaineers had their best opportunity of the half. Rachel Minnich redirected a low liner that was headed on frame and sent it towards the back post. McKenzie, who had the original shot sized up, had to adjust to the redirection that was heading to the back post. She was unable to get to the shot but it bounced off the post and right back into McKenzie's waiting arms.

After half, WVU picked up right where they left off. Just 1:32 into the second period the Mountaineers cut FSU's lead in half. Lisa Stoia played a ball into the box off a free kick that McKenzie charged and hauled in. In the middle of the mass of attackers and defenders the ball popped out and Lisa Zanti was right there to put the chance away.

"After the first goal, we took a deep breath and regrouped. We knew we would be fine," said Beal. "We obviously didn't want to give up an early goal but I thought we responded."

"In the first half we played pretty well defensively," said Rowland. "In the second half you have to give West Virginia credit. I think Joy (McKenzie) may have been interfered with on the first goal but that happens. It is part of the game."

The Tribe reacted to the goal and went back on the offense themselves. Beal sent a free kick service into the box in the 52nd minute. Bybee flicked a header shot that beat the keeper but sailed over the bar. The pair combined again on another set piece just a minute later. This time Beal served a ball to the back post and Bybee was there again. This time her shot was just wide of the goal.

In the next minute, Gallegos had another opportunity to put FSU in front 3-1. Bybee played Schnugg down the left side. The freshman from Alamo, CA got endline and sent a perfect cross on to Gallegos' head. The Los Angeles, CA native blasted the header but a diving Bannerman came up with a huge save as she pushed the shot just wide.

West Virginia remained patient as they searched for the equalizer but it was Florida State that once again went in search of the clinching goal. In the 71st minute Bybee and Schnugg combined again and the once again linked up with Gallegos in the box. The striker spun away from the defense and fired a low liner to the near post. A WVU defender just got enough of the shot to send it wide of the post.

"We had some chances that we didn't capitalize on but outside of North Carolina I thought this was the best team we played all year," said Ratliff. "They were very balanced and excellent in all three areas of the field."

With 17 minutes remaining the Mountaineers sent numbers forward in hopes of tying the game and in the 73rd minute Kambria Riggins almost did. Laura Kane found Riggins at the far post of the FSU goal. She slammed her header shot back the other way but it went just wide of the post.

With only six minutes remaining the Mountaineers continued to flood the box but it was a shot just outside the 18 that almost tied the match. Nicole Cauzillo saw an opening from about 20 yards out and fired high. McKenzie made a brilliant effort on the drive as she tipped it over the crossbar to preserve the 2-1 lead.

With less than 2:30 seperating Florida State from its first ever Elite Eight, WVU finally got the equalizer they had been looking for. Ashley Weimer played a great ball through the Tribe box and to the back post. Leslie Barden was there waiting and she sent her shot back the other way scoring her third goal of the NCAA Tournament.

"Give them credit. They scored two big five goals in the second half," said Baker. "You knew they were going to come out fired up. That got the crowd involved. They are desperate because it is 2-1 nearing the end of the game and they don't want their season to end. Weimer played a beautiful in behind our defense and they capitalized."

"We tried to stay tough and keep our composure," said Gallegos. "It happens and they gave us a really good game. It was a little scary when they tied it up. We knew it wasn't over and we weren't going to let down."

The last time Florida State gave up a goal that late in the game was during a 3-2 loss to Virginia at the beginning of October. That game saw the Cavs score the game-winner with 27 seconds on the clock. The Tribe didn't allow the game-winner in the second half Sunday but the game did move into overtime. It was the second consecutive overtime game for the Seminoles in the NCAA Tournament after downing Auburn 2-1 in the 102nd minute last week.

"We scored two goals in the first half, they scored two goals in the second half and you can't change what has happened in the past," said Baker. "Now it comes down to who can step up and stick a goal. We felt like they exhausted a lot of energy getting the game back to 2-2. In overtime we did a nice job and created a lot of quality chances."

Florida State created the only serious chance in the first overtime period and it came just two minutes in. Freshman India Trotter dribbled three or four WVU defenders and found Schnugg waiting on the endline. The forward found Gallegos inside the box and right in front of the goal. She was unable to beat Bannerman though as she put the ball right down the middle.

Florida State had the only two shots of the first overtime period and the only real chance. In the second 10 minute period things weren't too different. Neither team was creating clear chances and the game seemed to be destined for a shootout.

In the 108th minute the Seminoles had their best chance of the second overtime. Teresa Rivera's corner kick was won in the box by Rowland. The freshman, who didn't lose a single battle in the air all day, won another header but Bannerman was there once again to push the shot wide.

"West Virginia definitely had the momentum in the second half," said Ratliff. "Once overtime started we had a renewed energy and that showed offensively. Towards the end we were getting a lot of chances and we knew it was coming."

The chances didn't seem like they were going to result in a win though as the clock ticked down to 30 seconds remaining. A Florida State throw-in was cleared out on the right side as West Virginia was just trying to play the ball into space and run the clock down. Beal made a sensational effort to track the ball down. She turned and launched a service to the top of the 18 where Ratliff and Gallegos were waiting.

"Beal hustled to get the ball and served it in," said Ratliff. "I thought I heard Camie (Bybee) calling for it. I knew someone was there so I turned and made the pass and it was Leah (Gallegos)."

Ratliff was able to control the service and she just slipped the ball to the wide side of the goal to Gallegos. As the clock ticked under 25 seconds the sophomore took a touch to goal and then blasted a shot in at the near post.

"First of all, for Beal to be in good shape positionally to get that ball, turn and then technically be able to serve," said Baker. "Second of all, for both Jez (Ratliff) and Leah (Gallegos) to have bent their runs to the back side and Jez be able to settle and lay that ball off is just remarkable. We get Leah in those situations and we like our chances. She stepped up again in overtime."

"Jez (Ratliff) played me a perfect ball," said Gallegos. "I had time so I didn't get nervous. I took my touch and just made sure it was on frame. I was just thinking score, score, score. That was all that ran through my head. I knew there wasn't much time and I did what I could."

The game-winner was the 10th of Gallegos' career. Just two years into her FSU carfeer, she is already in second place all-time in career game-winning goals with 10. She is just the second Seminole to ever record double digit game-winning goals in a career. She is now also the first FSU player to ever record two game-winning goals in a career in the NCAA Tournament and the first to do it in one season.

"There is an unbelievable rush of excitement when Leah (Gallegos) gets that golden goal," said Baker. "We didn't get her a ton of good looks but the one she got she made stand up. That is a credit to her."

"Immediately after that ball goes in the goal, it is the most excited you could ever feel," said Gallegos. "You just run to every player on your team and don't even really know what is going on. You are screaming and celebrating. After that it starts to sink in that you are going to the Elite Eight. It is so exciting to get a win in OT but even more so to extend our season another week. To have another opportunity to run to all your teammates and hug them and scream and celebrate, I love that feeling more than the individual success from scoring the goal."

The Seminoles now join BYU as the only two teams in the Elite Eight making their first-ever appearance in the NCAA quarterfinals. It took Florida State senior Amber Tollefson three tries but the lone playing senior is going to the Elite Eight.

"Every year is different and the first two times we made the Sweet 16 we were still kind of glad to be there," said Tollefson. "This team deserved to advance further. Those experiences helped us. You can't put into words how it feels to get over that hurdle. It is indescribable. I am so happy for this team. It is a dream come true."

"This is really rewarding," said Ratliff. "All the hard work, all the tears we shed all the sweat that everyone put in has paid off. Everyone is feeling good and confident as we head to Gainesville."

This is the Tribe's eighth win of the season over a ranked team but just their first of the year over a top 10 squad. This is the sixth all-time win for FSU over a team ranked in the top 10 of the NSCAA poll. West Virginia finishes it's most successful season ever with a record of 17-4-2.

"We feel like we have learned some pretty valuable lessons in our two previous Sweet 16 trips," said Baker. "Against Clemson we were just happy to be there and they promptly took it to us. Last year against UConn, we left the game realizing it was there for the taking. It just comes down to who capitalizes on their chances whether that be in the first two minutes or the last 21 seconds. If you keep putting yourself in position, hopefully at some point in time you will be able to take the next step.

"Both of these teams could easily be playing next week in Gainesville. There is no doubt about that. West Virginia is the No. 6 seed because they have great coaching, wonderful talent and special team chemistry. They defend well and they score goals. It is a credit to our group to come to a difficult place to play and get a result."

Florida State's first ever Elite Eight match will come against a familiar foe in the third-seeded Florida Gators (19-3-2). The Gators beat FSU 2-0 in the Tribe's fourth match of the season. Overall, Florida leads the all-time series 7-3 but Florida State has won three of the last five meetings and the only ever meeting between the teams in the NCAA Tournament. The game will be played in Gainesville Sunday, November 30.

"It is an awesome feeling to know that all the hard work from the first day of preseason to know is paying off," said Rowland. "If we have come this far, we might as well keep going. We want to take that mentality into our next game. Put it all on the line and see what happens."

Seminoles Oust Florida 2-1 And Are Headed To First Ever College Cup.

GAINESVILLE, FL - In one of its most dominating performances in its four NCAA Tournament trips, the 11th-seeded Seminole soccer team (17-7-1) downed No. 3 seed Florida 2-1 in Gainesville to send the Tribe to the school's first-ever College Cup. It was the second time in less than a week that FSU has gone on the road and upset a higher seed in the NCAA tournament and they will now play in the final four versus the winner of Saturday's match between Connecticut and Brigham Young.

"Florida State played well tonight and you have to give a lot of credit to them," said Florida head coach Becky Burleigh. "I thought they came out and put a lot of pressure on us particularly early. I thought Florida State outplayed us and tonight the best team won."

The win was Florida State's fourth in the last six meetings with the Gators but just the second ever in Gainesville. The only other time Florida State beat UF at Percy Beard Stadium was in the 2000 NCAA Tournament. That afternoon the Seminoles eliminated the Gators by the exact 2-1 score and advanced to the school's first-ever Sweet 16.

"There have been two defining wins in our program's history and I talked about this with our players," said Florida State head coach Patrick Baker. "No disrespect to Florida, in 2000 our senior class and their senior class played opening night. On that night we beat them is dramatic fashion. Four years later with the opportunity to go to the Final Four, another defining moment for our program. I am so excited for everyone but especially our seniors, who came here when not a lot of other players would. Since that time we have had wonderful success. I am just very proud of the effort tonight."

The Tribe came out strong from the opening whistle and stymied the Gator offense all evening. Florida didn't take its first shot of the game until the 30th minute and they didn't have a single corner kick all night. Their goal came with just under three minutes remaining in the match and through 75 minutes UF had just two shots before pushing forward after falling behind 2-0.

"I think their midfield played really aggressive tonight," said Florida's Dena Floyd. "They connected in the midfield and outplayed us."

"I give our players credit. We came up with a game plan and I thought they executed it very well," said Baker. "Up until they scored with three minutes, we controlled everything. Our back four was exceptional as well as the midfield. I thought we played much better here this time around than we did in September. We are a much better team now than we were."

The last time the teams met in September, the Gators won 2-0 in Gainesville and dropped the Tribe to 0-3 on the season. The Seminoles then fell to 1-4 before making this run to the College Cup. In that stretch Florida State went 16-3-1 and of those 20 games 15 were against 2003 NCAA Tournament teams, six were against teams in the Sweet 16 and two came against consensus No. 1 North Carolina.

"What happened to this team comes from playing in the ACC and we have played remarkable teams in the NCAA Tournament. We just feel like we are tested," said Baker. "That happens when you play 13 of your last 16 games versus NCAA Tournament teams. It just makes us ready for these types of environments."

The environment FSU played in Friday night was made up of 3,432 Gator fans, which was the fifth largest crowd in Florida soccer history. On the eve of the FSU/UF football game set to be played just a half a block away at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the Tribe took the large crowd out of the game from the opening whistle.

"To come here on the weekend that it is, with the Florida/Florida State rivalry and the crowd...we didn't let the crowd get into the game until the 87th minute. That is a compliment to our players," said Baker." In September we were down 2-0 and even though we responded well we weren't really in the game."

The victory moved Baker to 4-3 all-time against Florida and 2-0 in the postseason. It was another huge moment for a Florida State soccer team that has made a habit of producing big moments since Baker took charge in 1999. When he led his team on to the field for the first time ever as the Seminole coach it was on the same pitch they played on Friday night. That time it was the Gators who were celebrating a national championship.

"This is special tonight," said Baker. "You have to understand that my first game at FSU was versus Florida in 1999 when they unveiled their national championship banner and promptly went on to kick our butt 5-1. It was the first time we ever scored against then and it was already 5-0 at that point. We were like the ugly stepchild.

"In the last four years we have been to four NCAA Tournaments, two Sweet 16's and now a Final Four. We are still just trying to gain respect whether it is in Florida or nationally. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't special. We take great pride in winning and trying to become the number one team in the state of Florida and that is difficult because Florida has been there so long and set the bar so high. It is very exciting and I am very proud of our players and for all the players that were here before."

Many of those former players were on hand Friday night and they saw the Seminoles get after their rivals from the south the moment the whistle blew. Florida State out shot UF seven to one in the first half and put four of the seven shots on goal compared to none for Florida. They forced Gator keeper Brittni Goodwin to make four saves while FSU starter Joy McKenzie was never tested.

"I think one of the strengths of our team is our combination play through the midfield," said Burleigh. "We never really got into a rhythm, particularly in the first half. We had no rhythm. Part of that is a credit to Florida State for breaking up that rhythm and part of that is our touch was a little bit off. We weren't connecting with our passes. Us keeping possession of the ball would have probably helped us quite a bit."

Florida State's first dangerous opportunity came in the 14th minute. Katie Beal sent a free kick in to the Gator box that was cleared out to the top of the 18. Sophomore Leah Gallegos took a touch and slipped a square ball to the right side across the top of the penalty box to India Trotter. The freshman blasted a low line drive to the far post but the shot just went wide of the frame.

Seven minutes later Gallegos and Camie Bybee combined freeing Gallegos at the top of the 18. The Los Angeles, CA native beat one of the Florida backs and slid a pass to freshman Julia Schnugg out wide. The frontrunner from Alamo, CA went near post with her shot but it was also just wide.

With just four minutes remaining in the first half, Beal had another chance on a free kick that resulted from one of four first half fouls by the Gators. The foul resulted when Gallegos was chopped down with the ball at her feet, as she was just about to cross into the Gator box. Beal, a junior from Alexandria, VA, blasted a shot right down the middle that was dipping under the crossbar but Goodwin was able to punch it over and preserve the tie.

"As the first half wore on, I definitely felt we were gaining momentum," said Jez Ratliff. "The last 10 minutes I just kept telling everyone it was going to come. Unfortunately halftime came before we got one. I thought they were lucky to be tied as we went to half. I knew if we continued to play like we were in the first half we would get a goal."

It didn't take long for Ratliff's prediction to come true. Just 11:11 into the second period Florida State jumped into the lead. Beal served a great ball of a free kick from about 45 yards out. The service was coming down just about eight yards from goal and right to freshman Kelly Rowland. The All-ACC Tournament selection latched on to the service and headed it past Goodwin for the 1-0 lead.

The goal was the sixth of the year for Rowland as she continues to add to her record for points and goals by a freshman defender at FSU. Five of her six goals have some since the regular season ended and all off headers. She is second all-time at Florida State for points and goals by a defender in a single season.

"I think we have always focused on set pieces," said Beal. "A lot of our goals have come on set pieces. We take great pride in them whether they come on a long throw, a corner kick or a free kick. We have great finishers and servers and all they need is a chance on goal."

"It was just another great long service from Beal and I was just able to latch on to it," said Rowland.

The goal sparked FSU as they went on the attack again looking for some insurance. Less than five minutes later the Tribe had another great chance inside the Florida box. An FSU corner kick was cleared to the top of the 18 where Ratliff took a touch and fired a shot through the UF defense that was pulling out of the penalty area. Julia Schnugg was there and just redirected the drive to the near post. Goodwin was unable to recover quickly enough but the shot was wide of the goal.

"We kept plugging away and we feel like we are well balanced in our attack," said Baker. "So we have the long throw-in and anytime someone makes a mistake and plays it out of bounds Kelly (Rowland) will wing it into the box. We have unbelievable services from 60 or 70 yards out from goal with Katie Beal. We have an unbelievable corner kick and we can score in the run of play. We feel like we are multi-dimensional. We feel like we can do some things."

It was another set piece though that helped Florida State build a 2-0 lead. Goodwin punched out Senior Amber Tollefson's corner kick but the ball didn't clear the 18. As it was bouncing out, Ratliff one-timed a half volley past the keeper and into the side netting.

"I was just trying to make the best contact I could from where I was," said Ratliff. "Luckily it got into the net. It was a little insurance and gave us a little easier feeling."

The goal was at least the 15th the Seminoles have scored off of a set piece this season. It has become a huge weapon for the Tribe whether it is a long throw-in by Rowland, a service by Beal or a corner kick by Tollefson, Rachel McDowell or Teresa Rivera. The Seminoles have developed into one of the nation's most dangerous teams on set pieces.

"We knew they were really good on set pieces and both of their goals came on set pieces," said Burleigh. "That was our number one priority, stopping set plays. Both of their goals came off of that. We spent a lot of time in practice emphasizing that. It is hard because they put a lot of pressure on you with the long throw-in and set plays. Obviously they were successful with those."

After the Seminoles went up 2-0, Florida shifted their system as they attempted to save their season from ending on their home field. The Gators had staged a comeback from 3-0 earlier in the tournament versus Ole Miss and the Seminoles let a 2-0 lead slip away the week before when they needed double overtime to beat West Virginia 3-2 in the Sweet 16. So both teams had recent memories of comebacks to inspire them in the final 20 minutes.

"A 2-0 lead is still a dangerous situation but obviously better than 1-0," said Ratliff. "When we got that second one you knew it was going to take something special for them to comeback on us especially with just over 20 minutes remaining."

Florida aggressively pushed numbers forward as they looked to at least cut the lead in half. With the Gators attacking with numbers, the Seminoles adjusted and looked to catch Florida short-handed with less than 20 minutes remaining in the match.

They almost did in the 74th minute when a counter led to a corner kick for the Tribe. The set piece was cleared out but right to Trotter. She sent her shot to the back post beating Goodwin but the Gator defense was positioned to clear it off the line before it went in.

As time ticked down and the Tribe was looking at its second shutout of the 2003 NCAA Tournament, Florida got on the board. Melanie Booth sent a ball from deep on the FSU end line to the back post. With the winds gusting, the service actually swung in and caught the inside of the back post. The ball bounced back out into the center of the box where Megan McMillan was there to clean it up.

"After we went up 2-0 on West Virginia and let them back in the game, that was in the back of our minds," said Ratliff. "After the first goal it wasn't like 'here we go again'. We all had the mentality that it isn't going to happen a second game in a row. We were going to finish this one out."

"I wasn't worried at the end," said Rowland. "After playing 88 minutes, I knew that this team would not let down with two minutes to go."

The Tribe didn't even though the Gators sent as many as 10 players into the attack as time ran off the clock. The Seminoles limited UF to a few desperation tries from outside the 18 but the Gators couldn't mount much of an attack before the Tribe charged the field as the clock hit zero.

One of the biggest keys to the Florida State victory was the play of the Seminole midfield. Tollefson, Ratliff, Bybee and Trotter controlled the match for Florida State and stymied the Gators at every turn despite playing numbers down. The Gators employ five in the midfield and the Tribe's four-player midfield alignment won that battle according to both coaches.

"They probably outplayed us mostly in the midfield," said Burleigh. "I thought their midfield did a really good job both offensively and defensively."

"Our midfielders did a great job in a number's down situation all night," said Baker. "When it became even numbers later in the game it really started to help us a little bit. We talked about how the midfield was going to dictate who won the game and I think you saw that this evening."

Baker also credited his player's preparation for the win. The Seminoles stuck to the game plan all night long and contained the Gators on the flanks, which isn't easy to do considering the team's speed.

"How our team has trained and prepared is such a credit to them," said Baker. "We watched so much video of Florida and as the game was unraveling and I knew exactly what they (our players) were going to do in those situations and they made the plays. Preparation was a huge part of this win tonight."

The victory was the first at Percy Beard Stadium for a visiting team in 20 matches. The Gators came into the game 17-0-2 in their last 19 home games. After knocking off sixth-seeded West Virginia last week, who was 19-1-0 in Morgantown, WV before the Seminoles beat them, FSU's last two opponents combined to have a 36-1-2 home record before FSU knocked them both out of the NCAA Tournament.

With No. 1 North Carolina's 3-0 win over 2001 National Champion Santa Clara, half of the final four will now be made up of teams from the ACC. The Seminoles are the first ACC school other than Carolina to make the College Cup since 1992 and they are just the fourth ACC school to ever play in the final four. The Seminoles are just the third team ever to advance to the final four with seven losses.

"We went from 1-4 to the Final Four so it doesn't matter where you start, it just matters where you finish," said Baker. "I told our players that I apologized to our two seniors when we fell to 1-4 in Kansas. We have a top 10 freshman class. We have three deserved U-19 National Team players and we're 1-4 and searching for answers?

"Just to methodically come all the way back with our only three losses coming to Virginia and two coming to No. 1 North Carolina. I told them they have proven that they can play with the best teams in the country. If we play to our capabilities, stick to our game plan and play well, we have a great chance to be successful. Seems like a simple formula but they step out every day and continue to impress."

Seminoles National Championship Run Ends In Semifinals.

CARY, NC - Florida State soccer's first ever trip to the NCAA's College Cup ended Friday to the same team that knocked them out of the 2002 NCAA Tournament. The Connecticut Huskies (15-5-3) used two Kristen Graczyk goals in the second half to stop FSU (17-8-1) 2-0 in the national semifinals. The loss was just the first for FSU to a team other than North Carolina since October 8 and concluded the most successful season in the history of the program.

The game was characterized by missed opportunities for Florida State who created numerous chances but was unable to capitalize. They took 20 shots but only put five on frame. Connecticut, on the other hand, put just four shots on frame but was able to score two of those four chances.

"I want to congratulate the UConn Huskies on their win in the semifinals and advancing to the national championship game," said head coach Patrick Baker. "They did a great job and took away a couple of things we have been pretty good at this year. I still felt like it was a game of chances and we created some very good looks at goal."

"We had 20 shots but unfortunately only five were on goal," said Jez Ratliff. "She (UConn goalkeeper Erin Rice) had some big saves and we couldn't get anything by her. She was a big help to her team. We just weren't getting any breaks as well when it came to finishing. We didn't finish like we were capable."

After a period of adjustment that lasted about 15 minutes, the Seminole offense came alive. It started with an India Trotter ball played in to Leah Gallegos. Rice charged the 50-50 ball but Gallegos pulled the ball back and around the keeper leaving the goal wide open. She crossed into Camie Bybee but the service was just inches high and Bybee wasn't able to put it on frame as the ball went over the crossbar.

A minute later, Katie Beal played an amazing diagonal ball right to the feet of Bybee at the top of the 18. Bybee turned and went in to the back with a 1-v-1 with the goalkeeper. The Oklahoma native tried to chip the charging Rice but the ball was just wide of the far post.

In the 19th minute, Trotter, who was dominant once again in the FSU midfield, made one of the most spectacular plays of the half. She carried the ball from the Seminoles' defensive third all the way to the top of the Huskies' 18. She pulled the trigger aiming for the far post but once again the shot was just wide.

Less than five minutes UConn had its best opportunity of the first half. A soft Huskies' shot was headed inside the Seminole six at the far post. Connecticut freshman Nikki Cross beat the Florida State defense to the ball but she had to run so fast to get there that she and the ball both collided into the post and the ball was cleared away.

On the ensuing counter attack the Seminoles once again found themselves in alone with the UConn keeper. Gallegos was slotted a perfect ball that carried her inside the UConn 18. A defender stepped to her and the super sophomore pulled the ball back and then pushed it past the defender, freeing herself. She took a quick look and fired but the shot was at Rice forcing the keeper to make her first of five saves on the day.

Bybee had another opportunity at a header in the 31st minute. Julia Schnugg and Amber Tollefson combined on the left side. Schnugg went endline and got enough separation to serve a ball into Bybee in the center of the box. The junior's header shot to the far post missed wide.

Seven minutes before half Gallegos had a chance to knock in her 19th goal of the year. A Katie Beal free kick was sent into the box where a scramble ensued when UConn was unable to clear the service. The ball came out to Gallegos who one-timed a low drive just wide of the far post.

"We had our chances today but it seemed like there was a lid on the goal," said Jez Ratliff. "I think knowing that we created those chances was really important but we needed to finish them in a big game."

The second half started just like the first half ended. Eight minutes in FSU was back attacking the Huskies' goal. Schnugg played a ball to Gallegos in the corner of the box on the left side. She took one touch to beat the defender and then bent a brilliant strike to the back post. The ball seemed to be curving right to the top corner but wound up just wide of the post.

The Seminoles best opportunity of the half came in the 62nd minute when Rice had trouble handling a free kick. The senior keeper dropped the ball and Bybee was there for the opportunistic finish. The junior couldn't get much on the shot but it was heading into the empty net before it was cleared out of danger.

Much like the first half when an FSU counter attack almost produced a goal, UConn countered on the Tribe's near miss and scored just 24 seconds later. The goal came on a cross from the right side by Gjertsen to a streaking Graczyk. The junior buried the header in the upper 90 at the near post.

A goal down and their season on the line, the Seminoles moved a third player into the attack as they searched for an equalizer. They almost got it in the 75th minute. Kelly Rowland's long throw-in found Bybee's head. The savvy junior flicked it backwards to Ratliff whose shot once again was just wide.

The chances continued for FSU as the time ticked away. In the 77th minute, Tollefson played a magical ball to India Trotter. The freshman was on the left side of the box and slipped the ball to Bybee who was standing dead center. Trotter tried to pull the trigger but the Huskies' defense swarmed and the shot was blocked.

Another set piece, this one in the right endline just yards in front of the corner flag was sent into the penalty area. It was placed right on to the head of a charging Ratliff, who had a step on her defender. The shot went wide of the post.

"This game was actually similar to our Florida game in the Elite Eight," said Baker. "In that game we were up eight shots to one in the first half. I know we weren't up that much in this game because they had great chances themselves. We were probably a little more frustrated versus Florida because that was more one-way traffic. It was an entertaining game for the crowd because there were chances at both ends. There just seemed to be a game where the first goal was probably going to weight heavily in favor of whoever scored it."

With FSU pushing up in hopes of an equalizer, UConn took advantage of the system and snuck in for its second goal of the game. The 20th of the year and second of the game by Graczyk was the one that sealed the game for Connecticut.

"To go from a 4-4-2 to a 3-4-3 and take some risks were not really comfortable in that system," said Baker. "We exposed ourselves there and give Gjertsen credit for staying composed in the box and finding Graczyk."

Graczyk, a junior from New Mexico, was the difference in a game that saw both teams creates chances. She was the only player able to finish on the afternoon and separated herself from the best on college soccer's biggest stage.

"I have watched her (Graczyk) career ever since we recruited hear. She's a talent," said Baker. "She has gotten better than what she was as a youth player. I think her ability to face up in tight spaces was probably the most impressive thing about today. She was able to get faced up and either take on or play others in. She is very dangerous, that's for sure."

Although the ending of the 2003 campaign was not what the Seminoles had envisioned, they all took solace in the fact that their two seniors got the chance to play in the College Cup before they graduated. Outside of winning the national championship, getting to the final four was the final piece in the puzzle for Amber Tollefson and injured starter Kristin Boyce.

"I can't say enough good things about this team. They are all my best friends," said Tollefson. "They all worked together to send me and (Kristin) Boyce off with a trip to the final four. They are all champions no matter what the outcome is. We fought every step of the way to get here and you have to give UConn credit but this team is still full of champions."

"Getting here was a tribute to this team and our seniors," said Ratliff."Going from 1-4 to the College Cup is amazing. We are all disappointed that we didn't win but it says a lot about this team to get here. We created chances but we just couldn't finish today."

The loss in the national semifinal ended the best season in Florida State history. The team not only broke numerous records but they assured themselves of the first Top 10 finish in program history. In just four years, FSU has now been to a College Cup, two Sweet 16's, two ACC Championship finals and four straight NCAA Tournaments.
