Soccer Tops Washington State.

DaCosta scores in 1-0 win onver Washington State in season opener.

PULLMAN, WA - Sixth-ranked Florida State (1-0-0) needed just one goal from senior captain Amanda DaCosta, the 14th goal of her career, as the Seminoles opened the 2010 campaign with a 1-0 road victory over No. 21 Washington State (0-1-0). DaCosta hit her game-winning goal from just four yards out, delivered by a precise pass from senior midfielder Rachel Lim who was credited with the assist, the 12th of her career.

"Overall I thought it was a good solid performance," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "It was a good first game against a very good opponent. I think we set up our kids a little bit to be in a challenging situation, traveling across the country and playing against a top 25 team. I think our kids passed an awful lot of tests, but there are still some areas for us to get better."

The Seminoles have now won three straight season openers, while improving to 10-5-1 all-time on opening day. The month of August has been especially good to the Seminoles as they improved to a perfect 10-0 under Coach Mark Krikorian and to 18-5-1 all-time, including twelve straight victories. The Seminoles have outscored opponents 65-26, including ten shutouts during the opening month of August.

DaCosta, an All-ACC Second Team selection in 2009, scored her fifth career goal in her fourth career season-opening game.

"It was a really good build up and Jordan Johnson got off a great cross," said DaCosta. "Rachel Lim fought for the ball and played it back to me. Fortunately, I was able to finish the goal."

"It was a good build up," echoed Krikorian. "The ball was spun wide to Jordan Johnson who bent a nice cross in that Rachel who really fought hard to get a touch or two on and dug the ball back toward the 18. Amanda ran onto it and finished in clean."

The Seminoles had 16 shots, including nine shots on goal. Three of Florida State's shots were excellent scoring chances with the first coming in the seventh minute as junior Tori Huster delivered a blast from 25 yards out that was tipped over the crossbar by Washington State keeper Meghan Berlingo. DaCosta added another fantastic shot during the 17th minute that Berlingo stopped with a diving save near the far post.

"It felt really good to finally get out there against some really good competition," said DaCosta. "We stepped right in and put up a really good fight, which I think helped us throughout the game. We fought really hard, defended hard and everything else just kind of fell into place. Overall it was really solid all over the board, especially since it was one the few times we have all played together against outside competition. Casey Short did a really good job as the game went on, just tracking back and really shutting down all their counter attacks. She kind of held it together in the middle for us."

Washington State had 13 shots of its own, with six being on goal.

Redshirt freshman goalie Kelsey Wys delivered a shutout with six huge saves earning her first career win for the Seminoles.

"Kelsey was huge," said DaCosta. "Kelsey had some really good saves. She was strong in her box, really confident, and that helped us a lot because she is the back of our defense, she is the last person so we feed off of that and definitely recognize it when she comes up big for us. It definitely helped with our energy, and it was good for her to get that under her belt." Wys had two crucial saves, one coming at 76th minute as she came out of the box and made a sprawling save from about 15 yards out and then again during the 77th minute on a tough angle from the left side from Washington State's Tiara Pittman from 12 yards out and made the save on the near post.

"I will tell you, Kelsey was a tower of strength," said Krikorian. "She played her position strong, confident, and with good handling. Kelsey had to deal with some situations that were a little bit difficult and she dealt with them all pretty well. I would say she showed very well in her debut."

The backline defense led by junior defender Toni Pressley, a Soccer America pre-season All American, shut down the Cougars along with the efforts of sophomore teammates Ines Jaurena, Tiana Brockway and freshman Kassey Kallman. The defense came out strong early, holding Washington State to five shots in the first half.

"I thought the whole group defended pretty well together", said Krikorian. "The collective defending was good, good organization, eliminating chances for Washington State, so across the board I thought the team defending was pretty good."

Florida State will return back to the field on Sunday, August 20 at 2:00pm against Gonzaga and then head home to host Stetson on Sunday, August 29 at 2:00 p.m. in its home opener.

"We had a chance to watch Gonzaga beat Utah earlier, and the young woman who scored, boy she had two very good goals," said Krikorian. "We are going to have to be a little bit careful with her, and they have another midfielder who I thought was very good as well. Overall they are a good solid team, and beat a good team in Utah. We are going to take a little bit time tonight to go have dinner and give our kids some rest and relaxation, and come tomorrow start up our preparation for Gonzaga."

Noles Defeat Gonzaga, 2-0.

Florida State earns championship of Washington State Inivtational.

PULLMAN, WA - The No. 6 ranked Florida State women's soccer team defeated Gonzaga, 2-0, Sunday at Lower Soccer Field to claim the championship of the Washington State Soccer Invitational. The Seminoles claimed the tournament championship with victories over Washington State on Friday and Gonzaga today to finish with a perfect 2-0 record in the event.

The Seminoles came out on fire against Gonzaga as junior Tori Huster scored what proved to be the game winning goal with only 1:27 elapsed in the match. Senior Janice Cayman scored Florida State's second goal of the game less than two minutes into the second half to give the Seminoles their game winning margin.

Goalie Kelsey Wys, a redshirt during the 2009 season, earned her second consecutive shutout as she was credited with one save. She recorded six saves in gaining the first shutout of her career in Friday night's victory over Washington State.

"It was a typical Sunday game," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian. "Neither team probably had as much in the tank as they did on Friday night, so it was nice to come out and score a goal early, then come out in the second half and score a second goal early. It kind of gives you a little more opportunity to have a little bit of breathing room, although Gonzaga pressed us and made the game difficult for us to play. We are happy to be coming back home with two wins against two good teams."

Florida State wasted little time, converting the game's first goal at the 1:27 mark on a chip shot by junior Tori Huster for her first goal of the season. Huster took advantage of an accurate pass by freshman defender Eirin Kleppa and blasted a shot from six yards out that ricocheted off Gonzaga's goalie Lauren Ames right arm and hit the inside of the left post. The goal was Huster's ninth of her career while Kleppa was credited with the first assist of her career.

"I took Tori to the side after the game (on Friday) and told her I don't often say it, but I thought she played like a national team player," said Krikorian. "She really showed her stripes then, and I thought she did so again today. It is nice and comforting to see that the experiences she had this summer playing with the U-23's were learning experiences. We are now reaping some of the benefits because she is as sharp as can be. She was dangerous the whole afternoon today as well as on Friday."

Cayman provided Florida State with a bit of extra security as she scored the second goal of the contest less two minutes into the second half. The goal was Cayman's first as a Seminole, as she delivered her shot off a header by a Huster. Huster began the play as she intercepted an errant kick by Gonzaga's keeper at midfield. The assist was Huster's first of the season and ninth of her career; she also finished the game with a team leading seven shots. "Janice timed it right very well behind the back line, and had a quality finish," said Krikorian. "That is something we are going to need from her and she showed she is capable and was quite good with the timing."

The Seminoles finished with 18 shots, including nine shots on goal. The Seminole defense shut down Gonzaga, holding the Bulldogs to just three shots on the afternoon.

"I thought our team defending was quite good today," said Krikorian. "We didn't give up a whole lot of shots, nor did we give up a whole lot of chances, so that is certainly something we are walking away feeling quite good about. I thought in our Friday contest, which was against a very competitive Washington State team, that we competed very favorably. Today I think scoring a goal early made our group relax a little too much, because Gonzaga was winning a lot of midfield battle in terms of 50-50 balls. Once we were able to get the game to settle down a little I thought we did a much better job controlling the elbows and first and second balls. Overall the defending was pretty good, but the attack was just okay. It is early in the season and it takes longer to develop an attack, but two shutout wins is pretty good at this point."

Wys was credited with one save in earning her the second victory of her career. Wys enjoyed a tremendous moment as she prevented a goal by tipping the ball away on a high bending shot from Gonzaga's Catherine Cullen that was blasted from 25 yards out toward the far right post.

"Kelsey did what she had to do," said Krikorian. "Her kicking game was pretty good, her positioning was good, and communication was quite good. She made the game a little easier for her backs, thus making the game easier for her."

Florida State held an eight to four advantage on corners, as Casey Short just missed on one corner from close range after a Tiana Brockway corner was played toward the far post.

The Seminoles are now 2-0 to open the season as they head home to play host to Stetson on Sunday, August 29 at 2:00 p.m. in the home opener.

Noles Top Hatters, 6-0.

Soccer team wins third game oif young season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Sixth-ranked Florida State (3-0-0) registered its third consecutive shutout with a dominant 6-0 victory over Stetson (2-2-0) Sunday afternoon at the Seminole Soccer Complex. Florida State came out on fire, scoring in the fifth minute on a goal by Janice Cayman and never looking back. The Seminole defense prevented the Hatters from attempting a shot on goal throughout the contest, matching a school and NCAA record for fewest shots allowed in a game. The victory was Florida State's third of the season in its first three contests, marking the second consecutive season the Seminoles have won the first three games of the season in shutout fashion.

Senior forward Janice Cayman scored what proved to be the game-winner just five minutes into the contest on a header from a cross by Jordan Johnson. Junior Tori Huster scored the second Seminole goal and now has two goals on the season. Huster took a deep pass from freshman Kasey Kallman, got past a defender and beat the Stetson goalie Andrea Garavaglia one on one from just inside the box.

After an own goal by Stetson to increase Florida State's lead to 3-0, the Seminoles earned goals from junior Casey Short, sophomore Breezy Hupp and freshman CC Cobb.

"It was a good solid performance all the way around," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We are a little banged up right now, so a lot of players had to come and step forward with some more responsibilities for the team than they normally would have. Some kids didn't know their own potential and some kids that maybe haven't played in the past came off the bench and did a good job for us," said Krikorian.

The six goal outburst gave opportunities to a number of the younger Seminoles to show the coaching staff have they have progressed so far during the early part of the season. Hupp and Cobb scored their first goals of the season. Hupp's goal came during the 78th minute of action as she knocked in a header from a Toni Pressley corner kick. Cobb's goal came ten minutes later, marking final score of the contest as she delivered a bending kick into the left corner of the goal from about 10 yards out. The goal was the first of her career.

"It is nice to get every kid into the game and give everyone some quality minutes and give them a chance to impact the game," said Krikorian. "I am happy with where we are and we look forward to our games next weekend."

A few of the Seminole freshman have already proven themselves as key contributors to the team according to Krikorian.

"Kassey Kallman has stepped right in and earned a starting spot from day one. She is going to develop and develop into a national player one day. She is very hard working and she comes to train everyday to get better and you can see in her play that her level of comfort is getting better all the time. Jordan Johnson has come in and also earned a starting spot. She has also done very well. Unfortunately we lost Eirin Kleppa to an ankle injury yesterday in practice and she was supposed to start today. She rolled her ankle so she will be out for some time and I think a few other kids have come in and done very well."

The Seminole defense continues to limit their opponents' chances on goal. Since the start of the season the Florida State has allowed a total of sixteen shots through the first three games. Three of those shots have been on goal as all three shots have resulted in saves. It's a similar repeat of the beginning of the 2009 season, when the Seminoles shutout their first three opponents and allowed just seven shots in the first three games.

"It was a good thing (on the shutout)" said junior forward Tori Huster. "One of our goals we talked about in the locker room was to come away with that and to achieve that goal. Kelsey did a job back there and the defense did a good job of not letting a whole lot of chances get behind them, so it was pretty good. Our defense was excellent across the board. It starts with Janice and I and the other forwards up top and then works its way back. Tiana, Ella and Toni's ability to keep us organized really helps out a lot."

"We know we are going to have to be better in defending than we have been in the past and continue to compete and try to reach the levels we are looking for," said Krikorian. Overall we are three games in and have had three very solid performances in our defending and limiting opponents a whole lot of chances."

While the defending has been spectacular in every game this season, the offense is now starting to come into their own as well, scoring a season high six goals. The six goals scored were twice as many as the previous two contests combined.

"I thought we attacked in a lot of different ways, with a lot of different opportunities coming in at different situations." said Krikorian. I thought we were quite dangerous in our set pieces, but through our play we also created an awful lot of chances."

Kelsey Wys, who was honored as the goalkeeper of the week by TopDrawerSoccer.com for her two shutout wins against Washington State and Gonzaga last week, was rarely challenged today as the Seminole defense kept the Hatters from attempting any shots.

"Kelsey hasn't gotten a whole lot of shots on goal even when we were out in Washington, and that can be attributed to the defense, but I think she is ready when we start getting into the ACC season," said Huster. "We will always try be ready for the shots when they do come, but we have been lucky so far to not have too many."

FSU finished the game out shooting Stetson 22-0, while holding the advantage in corner kicks with a 14-1 edge.

No. 5 Noles Fall At Auburn.

Seminoles lose first game of season to Auburn in overtime.

AUBURN, AL - Auburn's Katy Frierson scored the game-winning goal in the second overtime period to give the Tigers a 3-2 victory over No. 5 Florida State at the Auburn Soccer Complex. Auburn scored the final two goals of the game - to tie the contest at 2-2 in the 87th minute and to win it in the 107th minute - in handing the Seminoles their first of the season.

Florida State (3-1-0) struck first during the 28th minute as sophomore defender Ines Jaurena scored on a penalty kick to put the Seminoles up 1-0. Florida State would hold the lead for 45 scoreless minutes until Auburn's Lydia Townsend scored a goal during the 73rd minute that would open the floodgates for the final 17 minutes of regulation.

Auburn's (3-1-0) first goal came on a breakaway that chipped off freshman keeper Kelsey Wys; it marked the first goal she had allowed in her short four game career. The goal was the first allowed by the Seminoles this year snapping the consecutive scoreless streak at 343 minutes, just six minutes short of the mark of 349 minutes of scoreless action that began the 2009 season.

Florida State would answer ten minutes later as Janice Cayman scored on a header from six yards out on an assist by Tori Huster. The goal was Cayman's third on the season. The lead would be short lived as Auburn would once again answer with a Jessica Rightmer goal from just inside the 18, pushing the contest into overtime. Frierson then scored the game winner with less than three minutes remaining in the extra time.

The loss snapped an eight game Florida State's winning streak against the Tigers. Florida State out shot Auburn 15-7 during regulation, but six saves by Auburn goalkeeper Amy Howard neutralized the Seminoles' attack. Florida State also had a decisive edge in corners with a 9-1 advantage in regulation.

The Seminoles have outscored their opposition 11-3 through their first four games. Thirteen different Seminoles have registered at least one point through the first four games of the season with seven different Seminoles scoring at least one goal. Florida State's stingy defense had shutout its first three opponents of the season, but with Auburn's three goals they fell one shutout win short of tying the school record for consecutive shutout victories at four straight, which occurred twice before during the 2005 and 2008 seasons.

Noles Shutout Bears, 3-0.

Seminoles improve to 4-1-0 on season; play Florida Friday night.

MACON, GA - No. 5 Florida State (4-1-0) received goals from All-American candidate Toni Pressley on a penalty kick in the first half and from Tori Huster and Lindsay Rice in the second half to gain a 3-0 victory over Mercer (2-3-1) at Bear Field. The Seminoles rebounded from their first loss of the season at Auburn on Friday to earn their third win away from home this season.

The Seminoles quickly stole the momentum from the host Bears team as junior defender Toni Pressley, a preseason All-American candidate, scored her first goal of the season on a penalty kick just 4:37 into the game. Florida State would never look back, as Pressley's goal proved to be the game winner and the fierce Seminole defense shut down the Bears to register their fourth shutout win of the season.

"At this point in the season, games like this can be kind of difficult, especially on the road," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian. "I think our entire team feels good that we won, but I think we are all a little bit concerned about our overall performance which wasn't very good. We are going to have be a whole lot better than this as our season goes on, or we will not have the kind of season we are hoping for. We were able to come in and play against a high-spirited, hard working team here in Mercer, and of course it's great to come out with a 3-0 win, but our level of play has to be better. Mercer dictated the play for much of the game and I think we have to raise our level."

Up just 1-0 heading into halftime, Florida State came out of the locker room and added to its lead as Junior Tori Huster scored during the 59th minute to put the Seminoles ahead 2-0. Huster's goal was made possible by a beautiful assist by sophomore defender Tifani Mullen, her first assist of the season.

Following the win, Huster echoed Krikorian's comments.

"It was pretty hard to bounce back from that loss (to Auburn)," said Huster. "Especially because they were an underdog and we were supposed to win the game. We are just going have to move forward and learn from our mistakes and I think we did that against Mercer. There are still many things we need to work on this early in the season, and us just having a positive outlook on the rest of the season is what we need to keep in our minds and hold steady with that."

Nearly 30 minutes later after Huster's goal, Florida State put the game out of reach as freshman Lindsey Rice scored the first goal of her career at the 88:43 mark. Rice became the ninth Seminole to score a goal this season. Huster was credited with the assist.

"I saw Lindsay, she popped off and I was able to get her the ball and she put it away pretty nicely," said Huster. "It's good because she is a freshman and it is her first goal, so I think she is really excited about it."

With the goal and assist Huster led the Seminoles once again in points, along with a career-high seven shots against Mercer. Huster's three points moves her ahead of senior Janice Cayman for the team lead with nine points on the season.

"I think we were getting into some good positions going forward," said Huster. "I was probably in the right place at the right time. It was good to get a goal on the game and then get an assist, but that is coming more from my teammates than it is just myself."

On Huster taking a leadership role, Krikorian added: "She has been sharp from the start and continues to be for us. I think she will certainly have to help us and carry us back, that is for sure."

Making her fifth career start in goal for Florida State, goalkeeper Kelsey Wys came up with some huge point blank saves in the game in route to posting a career-high eight saves.

Overall Florida State outshot Mercer 18-12, and held a 5-4 edge in corners, but 12 fouls and an offside penalty slightly slowed down the Seminole attack. Through the first five games the Seminoles have outscored the opposition 14-3, as fifteen different Seminoles have registered at least one point while nine different Seminoles have scored at least one goal.

The Seminoles now return home to play Friday, September 10 as they take on rival, and No. 7 ranked Florida Gators at the Seminole Soccer Complex. In last year's match, Florida State defeated the Gators 1-0 in Gainesville.

"Planning (for the Seminoles' upcoming game against Florida) starts right now on the bus," said Krikorian. "Certainly not for the players, but all of us (coaches) will be looking at some video we brought with us. Starting to get ready, we know that it will be a very tough, emotional game against a very good opponent. We will have to improve our consistency. We had some very good performances and had some that were not quite sharp enough, so in order to be successful over the course of an entire season we have to maintain a certain level game after game, and right now we haven't been able to do that."

Huster added: "We had to keep the focus on Auburn and then Mercer this weekend knowing that we had Florida in the back of our minds for this coming weekend. Now the focus is all on Florida and like I said we have to learn some lessons from this weekend, hopefully correct them this coming week, and then play well against Florida."

Noles Fall In Overtime 2-1 to Gators.

Janice Cayman scores a game-tying goal in the 89th minute, but Gators prevail in overtime.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Eighth-ranked Florida State (4-2-0) scored a game tying goal from senior Janice Cayman with just a minute and three seconds left in regulation, but sixth-ranked Florida (6-0-0) responded just fifteen seconds into overtime to end the Seminoles rally. Florida's golden goal came from sophomore McKenzie Barney, as the Seminoles lost their second over-time loss of the season. Florida's goal shocked a raucous crowd of more than 2,000 fans, one of the largest crowds to ever witness a Florida State/Florida match in Tallahassee.

"Obviously, our kids fought hard, very hard, to come back and equalize," said Head Coach Mark Krikorian. "It seemed as though we had a very positive shift in the momentum going into the overtime, scoring so late, but obviously we weren't mentally prepared enough on the kickoff."

"You know we talked about it before the start, but you know, let them have a free serve, let them have a free run in the box and a free touch and the game ends. So, our mentality has to get better in these situations in order for us to find the result we want, but you know, I thought our fight was very good. I thought we played some very good soccer through different moments of the game, but overall we have to get better," said Krikorian.

Janice Cayman's goal was her fourth of the season, which currently leads the Seminoles. She is now tied with junior Tori Huster for the team lead with nine points. The two goals allowed were just the fourth and fifth goals scored on freshman keeper Kelsey Wys, who has already had four shutouts in her early career.

Sophomore Ines Jurena was credited with the assist, which she took a deep cross that Cayman put into the Gators net. "I wanted to put the ball into the box and Toni was pretty far, I know she can kick from this far, but I was wide of them so I escorted the ball and no one came at me so I just sent the ball in," said Jurena. "Luckily it ended as a goal."

With the loss, Florida State's home record against the Gators is now 3-5 as the all-time record falls to 7-11 all-time. The game ends as the second overtime loss of the season, both to South Eastern Conference schools as the Noles record against the SEC dips to 22-17-1 all-time.

Florida State lost the first five games of the series to Florida dating back to 1995, but the series has seen a positive shift since 2000 as Florida State has gone 7-6 against their rival, and the two teams have tied in scoring 18-18 in those eleven matches.

"We just need to focus on Sunday. Even though we're disappointed we just need to keep looking forward and just forget about this," said Janice Cayman. The Seminoles now look to rebound quickly against Central Florida, who defeated the Seminoles 1-0 last year in Orlando.

Noles Slay Knights, 3-1.

Seminoles improve to 5-2 on season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Eighth-ranked Florida State (5-2-0) scored two first half goals, and then added another goal twelve minutes into the second period as they handed Central Florida (4-2-0) their second loss of the year with a 3-1 victory. Junior Toni Pressley started off the Seminole scoring from a penalty kick during the 28th minute. Six minutes later freshman Kassey Kallman took charge scoring the first goal of her career by dodging several defenders and blasted the ball into the corner of the Central Florida net from five yards out. Breezy Hupp scored the Seminoles final goal at the 57:17 mark as she split the defense after receiving a pass from senior Rachel Lim. The Seminoles would never look back at the held on to the 3-1 victory.

"I thought we responded very well, in particular the first half was very good," said Head Coach Mark Krikorian.

"We came out and established a nice rhythm got a hold of the ball, had the flow of the game exactly as we wanted it to and realized that in the second half was just about managing the game and finding a way to get through the 45 minutes. We have a number of kids that have played an awful lot of minutes recently and today an awful lot of kids got a chance to come off the bench, contribute and help us win."

The players felt relieved to bounce back with a victory and get the win over a Central Florida team that beat them the previous year 1-0 in Orlando.

"It was great," said Kallman. "We had a tough game on Friday. It didn't end the way we wanted it to result, but we came out here and just tried to let that game go, focus on this game and come out hard."

"I think we took a step in the right direction," added Hupp. "Coming off the loss from Florida, we had something to prove. We all knew that coming out here it was going to be hot and we needed to prove something to everybody in the nation and especially to ourselves."

The Seminoles played without their leading scorer Tori Huster. Even without one of their star players, the Seminoles attack didn't miss a beat.

"Tori's a great player," said Hupp. "She's mobile and goes through defenses, but you know, it's good to where people can be hurt and you can put other people in the same position and succeed."

Added Kallman "It is always difficult because Tori makes a lot of stuff happen, but the other forwards stepped it up."

While Pressley's penalty kick was officially the game-winner, it was Hupp's second half goal that put the Noles up 3-0 that really put the game away.

"I think it just kind of sealed it for us and kind of let the team know, ok, we're up by three let's just kind of hold it here and UCF kind of shut down a little I guess," said Hupp.

Florida State improves to 5-1 at home against the Knights and 8-3-1 all-time. The Seminoles will now take a few days off before they start to prepare for Arkansas, next Sunday, September 19th at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Razorbacks will be the third South Eastern Conference opponent for FSU this season. The Seminoles will have something to prove as their previous two games against SEC foes Auburn and Florida both resulted in tough losses in overtime. Overall Florida State is 22-17-1 against Southeastern Conference teams.

"The break, I think, is needed. It's going to be nice and then it's just another game that we're all just going to have to mentally prepare for and the three days, I think, should mentally prepare us for it," said Hupp.

"We are going to just take three days off, completely away from soccer, away from running, then come back, train hard and get ready for Arkansas" added Kallman.

Noles Top Razorbacks in OT.

Huster scores golden goal in extra time in 1-0 win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State junior Tori Huster scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lead the No. 12 Seminole women's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Arkansas at the Seminole Soccer Complex. Huster scored the game winning goal only 17 seconds into extra time to give Florida State its first victory in three tries over a Southeastern Conference opponent this season. Huster blasted a shot from 10 yards out into the Razorback goal. Senior Captain Amanda DaCosta began the game winning possession with a pass to senior Janice Cayman who placed the ball perfectly for Huster who was racing for the goal. Both Cayman and DaCosta were credited with assists on the game-winning goal.

Florida State improves to 6-2-0 on the season and 3-1-0 at home on the season while Arkansas falls to 3-4-1 on the season.

"We got the ball off of their kickoff and we knew that they normally like to go to their left mid so we planned for that," said Huster. "Amanda was able to read the pass and she got a good pass in through Janice. We had been trying to get behind them all game and it didn't seem to be clicking, but in that overtime it clicked pretty well and Janice played a good ball to me. I was able to free myself from my defender and then put one in."

DaCosta, who was credited with an assist on the game-winning goal, felt the Seminoles' preparation for the game was the key to gaining the victory.

"We had good starting position," said DaCosta. "We knew they were going to play the ball wide. We anticipated it and just went for it...it felt good to get that. I think we deserved it. We scouted Arkansas perfectly, we knew exactly what we were in for and I think we deserved that win."

Although the golden goal was the highlight of the match, defense was the name of the game as Florida State and freshman keeper Kelsey Wys registered their fifth shutout of the season. Wys was a star in the Seminole goal registering six saves. Florida State controlled most of the possession of the game, outpacing the Razorbacks in shots 18-6, and corners and 4-3.

"The game didn't have much a high tempo to it and it was kind of a stagnate game," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Everyone plays with different tactics; that's one of the beauties of the game and we need to be able to play against everybody.

Arkansas marked the third Southeastern Conference opponent Florida State has faced this season, as the previous two matches against Auburn 3-2 (double overtime) and Florida (2-1), were both lost in overtime. This time the Seminoles had something to prove against the Razorbacks as they wasted no time to go on the attack and capitalized with Tori Huster's team leading fourth goal of the season.

It was a sweet comeback for Huster, who returned from an ankle injury that kept her out of the Seminoles' victor over UCF last Sunday.

"I was ready to go, but I think it took me a while to get back into the game with the speed of play and everything," said Huster. "I think it was good a thing last week (not playing against UCF) because I got to see some of the stuff that was happening from a coach's perspective and then try to translate it to this game, but I think we still have a little bit to work on."

The game between the two schools proved to be a physical one, as the Seminoles were dealt a significant blow when senior Janice Cayman suffered a leg injury that forced her to leave the game during the 70th of the game. Cayman would tough out her injury and return to action to deliver the game winning assist to Huster.

"I thought that we should have been more dangerous in the game," said Kirkorian. "The goals come when you're dangerous and I don't think we were dangerous enough through the 90 minutes. We had the ball, we possessed the ball, we passed the ball, we moved the ball, but, when it came to penetrating into the penalty box, we weren't dangerous enough. Again that's about being precise and having timing."

With the golden goal in overtime, the win should prove to be a huge confidence boost for the team going into conference play. The Seminoles open ACC play at Miami next Sunday.

"Yeah, I think so," said Huster. "It's good to have a win going into conference play, and I think we need a little bit of our confidence back from Florida and all that that happened. So, yeah I think so, but I think we also have to realize that our confidence doesn't mean much if we don't come to play."

No. 12 Noles Top Miami, 2-0.

Huster and DaCosta score to lead Seminoles to ACC win over Miami.

CORAL GABLES, FL - The No. 12 ranked Florida State women's soccer team needed just one goal, but added a second insurance goal late in the second half to defeat in-state rival Miami, 2-0, in the ACC opener for both teams at Cobb Stadium. Junior Tori Huster scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the games 11th minute. Senior captain Amanda DaCosta put Florida State up 2-0 in the final minute of action to give Florida State its winning margin of victory. Seminole goalkeeper Kelsey Wys registered her sixth shutout win of the season. Wys finished the game with three saves as Miami created only three shots on goal.

Florida State improved to 7-2-0 on the season and 1-0 in ACC play with the win while Miami fell to 6-3-1 and 0-1 in the ACC. The victory was Florida State's eleventh straight victory over Miami. The Hurricanes won the first two games in 1998 and 1999, but the Seminoles have a not lost a game to their rival since as Florida State improves their all-time record to 11-2 against the Hurricanes.

The victory was Seminole head coach Krikorian's second ever in an ACC opener.

"It's a very difficult challenge to go on the road and come down here to Miami to open ACC play and to come out with a victory," said Krikorian. "I thought our kids battled very hard and certainly created enough opportunities to get the two goals and had a chance with maybe one or two others."

Huster, who scored the game-winning goal in overtime last Sunday against Arkansas, once again scored the game-winning goal - this time in the first half. The goal was Huster's fifth of the season, the most among Seminole players. Senior Rachel Lim and freshman Kassey Kallman were both credited with assists on Huster's game-winning goal.

DaCosta, a three-time All-ACC member, added a second goal during the final minute of action for her second goal of the season. DaCosta took a cross from senior Janice Cayman and blasted a shot from 10 yards out that deflected off of the Miami goalkeepers' hand.

When speaking about two of his star players coming up big with goals, the coach had this to say: "I think both players, Tori and Amanda, are both playing like national team players, and that is what we need from them, that is what we expect from them, and I like the level of commitment they have made. Not just because they scored the goals, but because of their influence on for the team dictating the play and doing all the little things that make your teammates better. Both are just helping to carry us and have done a very good job for us."

Florida State finished the game tied with Miami with nine shots a piece, while Miami took six corner kicks to Florida State's zero. Florida State committed only five fouls and was not called for a single offside infraction while the Hurricanes racked up a whopping 19 fouls and were whistled for being offside twice.

Florida State will now return to Tallahassee for three home straight games, including two games next week versus Wake Forest and Duke. The Seminoles will face Wake Forest and Duke on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00pm and Sunday, October 3rd at 1:00pm, respectively.

"Our focus right this minute turns to Wake Forest, said Krikorian. "We know that Wake won a heck of a game against Duke on Thursday evening and we know Wake is always a good team. They are talented, have an outstanding coach and I think their organization as a team is always very good. Their personnel has changed a lot due to graduation, but they have some very talented kids. We will viewing tape immediately and start our preparation and get ready to play Wake Thursday night."

Noles Beat Wake 1-0 In OT.

Rachel Lim's golden goal keeps FSU unblemished in ACC play with a 1-0 victory over Wake.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 10 ranked Florida State was pushed to another overtime battle and for the second time in two weeks was on the winning side of a golden goal as it defeated No. 19 Wake Forest, 1-0, in its ACC home opener at the Seminole Soccer Complex. Senior Rachel Lim scored the game-winning goal in the 95th minute on an assist by fellow senior Janice Cayman.

Florida State improves to 8-2-0 on the season and 2-0 in ACC play with the win while Wake Forest falls to 8-4-0 and 2-1 in the ACC.

The golden goal was Lim's first score of the season, and it certainly came at the best of times.

"It did, it felt good," said an excited Lim. "That was my first goal for my senior season. What I remember is that AD (Amanda DaCosta) had the ball, she turned it, it popped up, she had a touch pass off the defender, I took a touch inside, drew the defender in, played it to Jan (Cayman), it was a little bit hard but she got to it, she played it across, I just tapped it, it went off someone and it went in."

Lim continued: "We had seventeen shots, they had five, it's frustrating, of course it is. I mean you have so many chances, you just can't find the back of the net. But I told the team from the beginning of overtime that we need to keep our intensity, keep our enthusiasm, we're getting our chances, we're getting our opportunities, we're going find one in the back of the net, and we did."

Head coach Mark Krikorian echoed Lim's assessment of the game winning goal.

"We have talked to them and have said to them you know in the past we can score two, three, four goals and there will be games that we do, but we know that it's not going come as easy for us," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Losing Jessica Price and Tiffany McCarty and having to move different players in different positions, it changes a dynamic of a team, and for us we know that the focus has to be on collective defending first and we have to be preventing good chances by the opponent."

Florida State's strategy going into overtime was a simple, but effective one.

"We told them, the game is going to be decided in one moment in time," said Krikorian. "It's going to be a chance that is going to be created on one end or the other and if we are precise in our defending, then we'll limit their chances and if we time our run and we give a proper ball then we're going to finish the game in our favor. Fortunately for us we did so."

The Seminole attack was powered by junior Tori Huster, who scored the game-winning goals the last two games against Miami and Arkansas. Tonight Huster took a team high seven shots, all on goal.

"Tori did very well," said Krikorian. "If you look at the end of the game, she was playing as a holding mid-fielder, so she started off as a holding mid-fielder and the flow of the game. We moved her into attacking midfielder and she played as a front player. Her versatility is something that is very important to us and she provides a lot of different abilities with that versatility she has."

The Seminoles' defense was once again dominant, as they held Wake Forest to just one shot in the first half and then just four shots in the second half. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Kelsey Wys registered her seventh shutout win of the season as the Seminoles have now kept seven of their ten opponents without a goal. Wys finished the game with three saves as Wake Forest created only three shots on goal.

"Kelsey has handled everything that's come her way," said Krikorian. "We have a different mentality; even though we always take pride in our defending we know that our offense isn't going to bail us out with three or four goals."

"I think that everybody embraces attacking and tolerates defending," added Krikorian. "I love the attack too, I love the creativity and the beauty of the ball, but we know that we need to be strong and committed to our defending and to this point they have done a good job with it."

Florida State outshot Wake 17 to 5 on shots, and also had a six to two advantage on corner kicks.

The Seminoles improved to 5-3 all-time against Wake Forest at home and pushed their all-time record to 8-9-3 against the Demon Deacons. The victory was Seminole head coach Krikorian's fifth win over Wake Forest, as the Seminoles have gone an outstanding 5-2-1 against the Demon Deacons during his tenure.

"They are a very good team," said Lim. "It's the ACC now; from here on out we are playing really good opponents, we have to respect them in every way and try to find their weaknesses and capitalize using our strengths."

FLORIDA STATE 3, DUKE 1

Seminoles Defeat Duke, 3-1.

The Seminoles stay unbeaten in ACC play with a 3-1 victory over the Blue Devils.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 10 ranked Florida State (9-2-0, 3-0-0 ACC) scored three consecutive goals to earn a come from behind 3-1 victory over No. 16 Duke (6-3-3, 0-2-1 ACC) at the Seminole Soccer Complex. With the win the Seminoles remain undefeated in the ACC in winning its fifth consecutive game. During the five game winning streak Florida State has outscored its opponents by a 10-2 margin.

"That's a big win for us," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Duke's a very good team. We had a game on Thursday night that took an awful lot of energy out of us and to come back with very little rest against a very good Duke team is a very good result for us at this stage of the season." The Seminoles showed resilience as they fell behind as Duke to an early 1-0 lead on an own goal in the fifth minute of action.

Florida State quickly responded as senior Rachel Lim scored the game-tying goal in the 17th minute. The goal was made possible by a double assist from senior Janice Cayman and junior Tori Huster.

From that point forward the Seminoles began to gain control of the game.

"I thought that there were periods in that first half that we played absolutely beautiful soccer," said Krikorian. "The two goals that we scored were top class. I was a little disappointed that we gave up the first goal as we did. We had talked about it; we had prepared for it and it was a bit of a lapse in concentration on the service into the box in winning the ball.

Twenty minutes after Lim's goal, senior captain Amanda DaCosta scored the game-winning goal on an assist by Breezy Hupp. Hupp was not quite done, as she who would later score on a Tiana Brockway corner kick to provide Florida State with its third and final goal in the 69th minute. The score gave the Seminoles a two point lead and put the game out of reach.

Krikorian knew that the third goal was a key to the victory.

"We knew that if we just sat in the whole time (with the 2-1 lead) that they would keep on putting balls into the box and sooner or later that's a recipe for disaster. Fortunately there was a great service on the corner kicks from Tiana and Breezy is a very good finisher. She went up above the crowd and I think it was a heck of a finish. Sometimes it's about being precise and sometimes it's about luck. It was a quality serve, a quality header and a good result."

Lim's score was her second goal of the season, as she scored the team's second golden goal of the season to defeat Wake Forest in overtime on Thursday. Lim believes her leadership is exhibited not in words, but by her play on the field.

"Just the flow of the game, I feel like we did dominate," Lim said. "We could keep the ball and realize that we could really just play our game around them and frustrate them. I feel like that was one of the biggest that helped us win the game."

"I'm not really too much of a vocal leader," said Lim. "I do say some things when I feel like its necessary, but at the same time I feel like I can lead by example. Just by hard work and the biggest the thing we were having is commitment to the box, I was up there and it was a great lay off from Janice and I was able to have had the opportunity to put it in."

With the assist to Lim, Huster and Cayman improved their team leading assist totals to four and five assists respectively. Huster and Cayman also extended their team leading point totals to fourteen and eleven each.

The Seminoles defense was once again dominant, holding Duke players scoreless, as the Blue Devils only goal came by an own goal kicked in by a Seminole player.

"It was a mistake that we made," said Lim. "Give them credit -- they found a way to get the ball in the back of the net. I figured there was still so much time left in the game that if we played our game, we can find the back of the net ourselves." Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Kelsey Wys made several key saves as she registered her ninth win on the season. Wys finished the game with a career high fifteen saves. Krikorian was quite pleased with the defensive performance.

"We let too many balls drop in the box and we were a little uncertain," said Krikorian. "Kelsey came up big and made a couple of absolutely fantastic saves. She's working hard and today we had to rely upon her quality. The defense in front of her has been very, very good. As we continue in the ACC, all of us in the ACC are going to get better from game to game and there are going to be more chances that people are going to get and we just have to rely on Kelsey when those moments come.

Despite the victory, Florida State was outshot by the Blue Devils 18 to 14, but held a six to four advantage over Duke on corner kicks. Florida State committed a season high fifteen fouls.

The victory was Krikorian's 101st victory as the Seminoles head coach, as he registered his 100th victory on Thursday in the thrilling overtime victory over Wake Forest.

"Overall, I'm pretty happy with it," said Krikorian. "At the end of the game it was about killing the game and preserving what we needed to get the three points and the ACC win. Overall a good solid performance."

Florida State will return to action this Thursday, October 7th at 7:00pm to face Clemson (5-5-0, 0-2-0 ACC) at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The game will be the annual "Paint it Pink" game to support breast cancer and will be televised on SunSports.

Seminoles Tame Tigers, 3-0.

Florida State extends six game winning streak and stays unbeaten in ACC play with a 3-0 victory over Clemson.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 9 Florida State (10-2-0, 4-0-0 ACC) scored the game-winning goal during the 29:53 marks in the first period of action from an unassisted goal by senior captain Amanda DaCosta as the Seminoles coasted to a 3-0 victory over Clemson (5-7-0, 0-4-0 ACC). The Seminoles added to their lead in the second period with a goal by junior Tori Huster during the 59th minute, and then again in the 76th minute from senior Janice Cayman. With the win the Seminoles remain undefeated and first place in the ACC while winning its sixth consecutive game.

"It was a good solid performance from the start to the end," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought our defending was pretty good. We didn't have as much energy tonight as I think we would come out with, but still the same, to win a game again in the ACC 3-0, I think it's another quality win for us and we move and start our preparation for the next opponent."

The game was the annual "Paint It Pink" game for the Seminoles to support breast cancer, and the crowd came out in full force to support the team. "Fantastic," remarked Krikorian, "We got a nice crowd, nice evening, and great cause. All of us here in the athletic department embrace and support breast cancer awareness and search for the cure."

During the six game winning streak, Florida State has outscored its opponents by a 12-2 margin, including four shutouts. Three of the wins have come against top 25 opponents Central Florida, Wake and Duke. The win was the Seminoles sixth this season at the Seminole Soccer Complex as they move to 6-1 at home.

Krikorian believes that his first place Seminoles have been exhibiting a positive attitude on the field, "I think right now it's a confident team, it's a happy team, but you're only happy until your next game and then you have to measure yourself again and see how that goes. Right now we're giving the kids a couple days off, and let them have a little break and then we'll come back together and start training Sunday for preparation for next week's games."

The game started out a little slow for the Seminoles, but they would turn on the heat at the 30-minute mark with DaCosta's goal. The Seminoles would continue the onslaught with two second period goals by team point's leaders Huster and Cayman. With the game-winning goal, DaCosta ties Huster for three game winners on the season and moves into sole possession of third place on the Seminoles scoring list. Not bad way to spend one's birthday.

"It feels good, I wanted one today, not so much for my birthday, but I was feeling good in warm ups and wanted it to carry over in the game," said DaCosta. "We were struggling a little bit in the beginning, we had some good attacks, but just couldn't find one so I think that (the goal) kind of changed it for us and turned things around a little bit."

With the goals, Huster extends her team lead with six goals and 16 points on the season, and Cayman follows closely behind with four goals and 14 points of her own. The three scoring leaders, Huster, Cayman and DaCosta have really helped keep the Seminoles attack strong despite the loss of two key players in the preseason.

"Yea, I don't know if it was just by chance that happened but we've been the three triangles up top, really trying to pull through with the loss of Jessica Price and Tiffany McCarty we've had some voids to fill so we've definitely taken that upon our shoulders" added DaCosta.

The Seminoles defense was once again dominant, as they held Clemson scoreless. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Kelsey Wys was rarely tested as she earned her tenth win on the season and finished with two saves. Wys also registered her ACC best eighth shutout of the season.

Florida State out-shot the Tigers by a 16 to 3 margin, and held a decisive nine to one advantage over Clemson on corner kicks. Florida State played nearly flawless in the penalty department as they committed only one foul in the match.

Overall the Seminoles improve to 12-7-2 all-time against Clemson. The victory was Seminole head coach Krikorian's 102nd victory at Florida State, and his sixth win over Tigers as the Seminoles head coach as Florida State has gone an outstanding 6-0-1 against Clemson during his tenure.

Florida State will return to action next Thursday, October 14th at 7:00pm to face two-time defending national champion #2 North Carolina (10-1-1, 2-1-0 ACC) at Chapel Hill where the Seminoles have never won a game, but have twice tied the Tar Heels. North Carolina has won a total of 21 soccer national titles dating back to 1981, and the Seminoles know they have a big opportunity ahead of them.

"We're looking forward to it," remarked Krikorian, "we'll take a few minutes now and enjoy this one and then start our preparation for Carolina."

Tonight's "Paint it Pink" game worn jersey's will be available to bid on at Seminoles.com starting this Monday, October 11th and running through the following Monday, October 18th. All of the proceeds will benefit the Sharon Ewing Walker Breast Health Center at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

NORTH CAROLINA 1, FLORIDA STATE 0
10/14/2010, CHAPEL HILL, NC

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

'Noles Fall To Tar Heels, 1-0.

The Seminoles suffer their first ACC defeat in a 1-0 heartbreaker to No. 2 North Carolina.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - No. 7 Florida State (10-3-0) held on for 87 minutes, but eventually allowed for the relentless attack of No. 2 North Carolina (12-1-1) to score the game-winning goal during the 86th minute at Carolina's Fetzer Field. With the loss the Seminoles suffer their first ACC defeat, thus ending their six game winning streak.

"I thought overall we didn't do a good enough job of settling the game and keeping the ball," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We allowed their pressure to dictate the tempo of the game and I think that when playing a team as good as they are you have to value the ball, take care of the ball and we didn't do that often enough through the course of the game."

The Seminoles once perfect conference record dips with the loss, but remains a conference best 4-1 tying them with North Carolina, which now holds the tie breaker with the Seminoles.

Led by junior All-American defender Toni Pressley, the Seminoles defense was once again a dominant force, holding Carolina scoreless until the 87th minute. Redshirt freshman Kelsey Wys faced twelve shots by the Tar Heels and converted three saves. The lone goal scored by North Carolina's Ranee Premji is only the eighth goal allowed by the Seminole defense all season.

"I thought overall our kids played very hard," said Kirkorian. "I thought we battled very well, but the key to the game was who was going to impose their style on the game. Unfortunately for us Carolina was better and they imposed their style on the game. We were unable to solve their pressure enough to be able to be dangerous and we have to be better."

During the six game winning streak, the longest such streak since 2006, Florida State had outscored its opponents by a 13-2 margin. The loss marks the first game the Seminoles have been shutout all season, and the first loss for the Seminoles that did not come by a golden goal in overtime. Florida State was out-shot by the Tar Heels 12-4, but Carolina held just a three to two advantage on corner kicks. Florida Stat has committed the least amount of fouls in the ACC, committed only two penalties in this matchup.

It was no secret that North Carolina, which has won 21 national titles since 1981, posed a difficult challenge for the Seminoles. During the last trip to Chapel Hill in 2008, Florida State tied Tar Heels 2-2 in double overtime, but that is the closest the Seminoles have come as they have never beaten North Carolina in Chapel Hill, but have tied the Heels twice at their home field.

Overall this match marked the 27th all-time meeting between Florida State and North Carolina as the series dates back to the Seminoles' first season of soccer in 1995. FSU split the season series with UNC last year winning 3-2 in double overtime at home from a golden goal by Ella Stephan, but later fell 3-0 to the Tar Heels in the ACC Championship game. The all-time record against North Carolina is just 2-22-2, but prior to this match, five of the last eight matches had gone to overtime.

While the Seminoles have had limited success against North Carolina, they have been as competitive as anyone has as of late against the powerhouse and showed once again they can hang toe to toe with the nations most elite program. If history repeats itself, which it often does, the Seminoles might get a chance at redemption against the Tar Heels in the ACC or NCAA tournament.

"If we have a chance to play them again sometime later in the season we will have to better, and be more precise with the ball and be willing to handle their pressure because we know its going to come," said Krikorian.

Florida State will remain on the road, as they turn their attention to their next opponent in the N.C. State Wolfpack (7-8-0) in a game that will be played in Raleigh on Sunday at 1:00pm.

"We know that NC State is a team that continues to improve, and they are a very good team," added Krikorian. "We are going to go back to the hotel now and start looking much more closely at them. Obviously all our attention was on our most recent opponent Carolina, and now that game has passed all of our attention turns to N.C. State. There is no easy game in the ACC and if we are not prepared and not sharp on Sunday we could be disappointed again, so we just have to go back to business."

Following their match with the Wolfpack, Florida State with return home to play the No. 8 Virginia Cavaliers (8-3-1) at 7:00pm on Thursday, Oct. 21st and then hold senior day against the No. 25 Virginia Tech Hokies (8-5-0) on Sunday, Oct. 24th at 1:00pm. Both games will be played at the Seminole Soccer Complex and televised by SunSports.

Seminoles Down Wolfpack, 4-1.

Florida State bounces back from UNC loss with a 4-1 victory over N.C State.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

RALEIGH, NC - Following a difficult loss to No. 2 North Carolina on Thursday, No. 7 Florida State bounced back with three second period goals to take down the N.C State Wolfpack (7-8-0). The Seminoles received double goal performances by both junior Casey Short and senior Janice Cayman. With the win the Seminoles improve to 11-3 on the season and 5-1 in conference play.

"I thought we had a good, solid and professional performance today," said head coach Mark Krikorian.

The game would start out a little slow for the Seminoles, as they would not score their first goal until 35th minute when Casey Short scored her second goal of the season with a shot from ten yards out that went into the lower right corner of the Wolfpack’s goal.

"It felt really good," said Short. "I think will give me more confidence heading into the next game."

The lead was short lived as N.C State responded 52 seconds later with a goal of their own by Jennie Krauser who scored on a long cross, tying the game at one goal apiece as the Seminoles and Wolfpack would head into halftime tied 1-1.

"I don’t think we were particularly sharp in the first half," said Krikorian. "We had to kind of grind it out, and we were happy to score the first goal, but we were disappointed in giving up the goal. We have to do better in our defending or we are going to give up chances and we are going to give up goals."

Florida State would turn on the heat after the break as they received the game-winning goal by Casey Short in the 50th minute, her first game winning goal of the season.

Short scored on a slip pass by sophomore Tiana Brockway as Short was able to punch it in on a one on one with the NC State goal keeper. "I think Casey gave us a big lift," remarked Krikorian.

"We know that she is a dangerous, attacking player both through her technique and he athletic quality she presents a number of challenges for opponents in defending her. She was on the spot, opportunistic, and scored the first goal mostly on her own, and the second goal she scored was through and awful lot of work from Tiana Brockway coming from the backline through the midfield and finding a seam to play her in and a quality finish."

The Seminoles would continue to apply the pressure, as Cayman would score her fifth goal of the season to put the Seminoles up 3-1. Sophomore Ines Jaurena was credited with the assist.

"It felt great, but all the credit to the people who gave me the assist, they made it easy for me to put it in the goal," said Cayman.

Cayman was not quite finished as she would score the Seminoles fourth and final goal during the 78th minute off an assist by Junior Tori Huster. With the goal and assist, Cayman and Huster are now tied for the team lead with 17 points on the season.

"Janice was busy, she was dangerous, and there were a number of other situations where she put herself in spots where she created half chances," said Krikorian. "It’s a credit to her to for her persistence and being able to finish two chances."

The Seminoles defense was once again resilient, as they held N.C State scoreless in the second period. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Kelsey Wys was rarely tested as she earned her eleventh win on the season and finished with three saves.

"In the second half I thought we came out and our energy was greater, and we were able to get control of the ball, control of the game and dictate the tempo of the game," added Krikorian.

Overall the Seminoles improve to 11-3-2 all-time against N.C State. The victory was Krikorian's sixth win over Wolfpack as the Seminoles head coach as Florida State has gone an outstanding 6-0-0 against N.C State during his tenure.

"It is always tough to come back from a loss, especially a big loss to Carolina," said Short. "It was good how we had the right mentality coming into this game and we got the victory, so it definitely felt good."

Florida State will return to action next Thursday, October 21st at 7:00pm to face #9 Virginia (10-1-1, 2-1-0 ACC) at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles will remain at home for senior day to play the Virginia Tech Hokies on Sunday, October 24th at 1:00pm.

Noles, Cavaliers Play To Tie.

Seminoles now 11-3-1 on season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 8 Florida State and No. 7 Virginia played to a 0-0 time on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer complex. In a match that was about as even as it possible could have been, the Seminoles outshot the Cavaliers, 10-9, while the two teams were even in corner kicks, 2-2, and nearly even in saves, 6-5 in favor of Virginia. At the end of regulation and two 10-minute overtime period, both ACC powerhouses failed to score throughout the seesaw match that saw several good scoring chances by both sides.

"I thought the first half it was more of ours, second half I thought it was more of theirs," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "Over time I thought we had the first one, second one was pretty even. Overall it was a good, even game, two good teams playing good soccer and maybe at the end of the day it was a fair result." The Seminoles (11-3-1, 5-1-1 ACC) entered their 20th all-time meeting with Virginia (10-3-1, 4-2-1 ACC) hoping for a win, which would have marked their first ever victory over the Cavaliers in the history of the program. Instead of celebrating the first ever win, FSU was forced to settle for their fourth tie against the Cavs and their first tie of the season.

"At the end of the day you always want to come out with a win," said team captain Amanda DaCosta following the match. "You want to say that you could have gotten the win, and I think we could have today but nonetheless at least we don't have zero points."

The first half was scoreless as four Florida State shots were dispersed throughout the opening 45 minutes by seniors Janice Cayman and DaCosta and junior Casey Short.

DaCosta attempted to break the 0-0 stalemate late in the first half after firing her second shot off a fast break to the box that was intercepted by Virginia's Chanel Jones who successfully tied Virginia's school record of 31 shutouts. Florida State's redshirt freshman goal keeper Kelsey Wys added four saves to her own running total of 60 saves on the season.

The Seminoles caught a glimpse of hope to score and win the game in the second overtime after freshman Eirin Kleppa touched the ball ahead to DaCosta who drove up the middle and hit Breezy Hupp for a shot into the net--unfortunately for the Seminoles the goal was revoked on an offsides call.

"It's hard to be upset after that," DaCosta said. "We fought really hard through both of the over times. We had our chances, Breezy was off side on that one, and we had our chances, they had theirs, it was a good battle for us."

"Good solid game, two good teams, some good soccer going on here tonight and we know Virginia is a good team, good program, and a lot of good players and well coached," Krikorian said. "So, we would have liked to have put one in the back of the net, but we weren't quite good enough to tonight so we walk away with a point and we look forward to Virginia Tech on Sunday."

The Seminoles will enter into their final home matchup of the season, marking their 10th all-time meeting with Virginia Tech for "Senior Day" on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 1:00 p.m.

Seniors Shine in 2-0 VT win.

Senior Janice Cayman ignites Seminoles with two goals against the Hokies.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 7 Florida State (12-3-1, 6-1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) has yet to record a loss to the Virginia Tech Hokies (8-8-1, 2-5-1 ACC) since their series began in 2002 and in the final home game of the season the Seminoles' senior class ensured that it didn't change as evident in Sunday's 2-0 victory at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"I thought we were solid as could be," FSU head coach Mark Krikorian said. "I thought not only did we keep a clean sheet, we really limited the quality of chances that they got."

The match marked the 10th meeting between the two ACC opponents, and the last regular season game in Tallahassee for seniors Janice Cayman, Amanda DaCosta and Rachel Lim who were instrumental in extending FSU's all-time series lead over the Hokies, 8-0-1.

"It was really cool to score on senior day," Cayman said. "Thanks to the people like Rachel Lim and other seniors and overall it was a great performance by us. We played good and kept the ball and made the other team tired."

In less than eight minutes into the match, Cayman led off for the seniors and the Seminoles with her seventh goal of the season. Junior midfielder Casey Short crossed to Cayman in the box to set her up for the eventual score on two back-to-back shots. The Brasschaat, Belgium native found the net after rebounding off her initial shot that was blocked by the Hokies to give the 'Noles the 1-0 lead.

"Janice has done a great job. I think it's good for her to score those two goals when she has great opportunities," Lim said. "It sort of looked like she scored three times because the first one went in then it came back out and then she scored another time and that was the third. She did very well."

The senior class continued to shine after Lim connected with Cayman 12 yards out for the second goal of the game, increasing Florida State's lead, 2-0. Lim's assist marked her fourth of the season - slating her second on the team behind Cayman and junior Tori Huster who are tied with five.

Meanwhile Cayman, who also leads the team in points (21) and goals (8), garnered her second double-scoring game of the season--her first came two games prior in the Seminoles' 4-0 win over NC State. Thus far, Cayman has recorded an assist or goal in nine of the Seminoles' 16 games of the regular season.

"She's been dangerous and created some chances and was on the end of two very good goals," Krikorian said of Cayman. "It's great for her and great for the seniors, great careers, and now they move on and go on the road again."

FSU outshot Virginia Tech 9-3, while FSU's freshman goal keeper Kelsey Wys tallied her 10th shutout of the season, beating out Virginia's Chantel Jones to lead the ACC alone in shutout games of the 2010 season.

"Overall our possession was quite good today," Krikorian continued. "We dictated the play pretty well and I think if we are able to continue to do so we can continue to have success, but sometimes when you're keeping the ball you put yourself at a little bit of risk. If you turn the ball over, it can be a little nerve racking, but the good news is that we have Kelsey Wys. So, it was a solid performance collectively and by Kelsey as well."

Virginia Tech registered 14 fouls compared to Florida State's three.

"That's part of the game, and Virginia Tech is a fine team, they come in and they use their strength, their power, their fight - competitive as can be - and they make it difficult for us to play, but that's part of the game and I thought overall it was a good solid game and we did what we needed to."

The Seminoles will wrap up the regular season on the road against Maryland on Thurs., Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. and at Boston College on Sun., Oct. 31 at 1 p.m.

'Noles Fall To Terps 2-1.

Maryland scores two goals in the second period to give Seminoles their second ACC defeat.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

COLLEGE PARK, MD - The eighth ranked Florida State women's soccer team pursuit for a second straight ACC regular season title took a big hit as they fell 2-1 to the third ranked Maryland Terrapins on a Thursday night game at Ludwig Field. After a scoreless first period, the Seminoles took the lead just two minutes into the second period on a goal by senior Janice Cayman. Maryland would quickly respond with two goals to give Florida State just their second ACC defeat.

"Overall I think our performance was as good today as it has been recently," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We didn’t keep the ball as we need to for us to be successful. We were not very sharp tonight; we were not sharp in our passing and not sharp in our movements and had too many careless giveaways. That said Maryland did a good job, they are a good team and were able to hold the ball, hold the possession and overall I would say the result was probably a fair representation of the game. We had a few big chances, but we didn’t put them away."

The game began out as a defensive battle as the two teams headed into halftime tied 0-0, but Florida State came out of the gates swinging in the second period as Janice Cayman scored her team leading ninth goal during the 47th minute of the game off an assist by junior Casey Short.

"Janice has been playing wonderful for us," said Krikorian. "Casey Short created a very dangerous situation to put the ball across and Janice had good timing with a quality finish."

Overall Florida State outshot Maryland 16-14 and finished the game tied with the Terps with five corners. The Seminoles committed only six fouls and was called for an offside’s infraction just once. Maryland was called for only seven fouls and was never whistled offside’s. While the numbers suggest that the game was a close matchup, the Florida State coaches know that for the team to be successful in tight matches they will need to perform better in aspects that don’t show up on a stat sheet.

"Our message to the team is the game is now over and we need to learn some lessons from it and apply them on Sunday," said Krikorian. "Probably the most important thing is for us to value the ball and have quality possessions off the ball, have good supporting angles, good supporting distances and if we do so then we will have a chance to be successful on Sunday."

With the loss Florida State now falls to 12-4-1 on the season and 6-2-1 in ACC play while Maryland improves to 14-2-1 overall and matches FSU with a 6-2-1 conference record. The Seminoles will now travel to Massachusetts to face the No. 11 Boston College Eagles on Sunday at 1:00pm. Following Sunday’s match the Seminoles will return home shortly before heading to Cary, North Carolina for the ACC Tournament which takes place next weekend.

"Boston College is a very good team," added Krikorian. "They are another talented, top ten team from the ACC. They have some special players and are a good organization. We know we have our hands full going up to Boston for our game on Sunday. Hopefully we can come back with a better performance than we had today and if we do then we will be successful, and if we don’t then we are going to struggle."

'Noles Edge Eagles, 1-0.

Toni Pressley scored the games only goal in the second period to give Seminoles the victory.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

NEWTON, MA - The No. 8 Florida State women's soccer team finished their regular season with a victory as they defeated the No. 11 Boston College 1-0 at the Eagles Newton Soccer Field. Junior defender Toni Pressley scored the games only goal during the 53rd minute on a penalty kick that Pressley blasted to the right of the Eagles keeper and into the goal. With the victory Florida State improves to (13-4-1) on the season and finishes tied in for second in the ACC with Virginia and Maryland with a stellar (7-2-1) conference record.

"I think it's a great way to finish the ACC regular season," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We just finished a very difficult road trip going up to play at Maryland and then turning right around and playing Boston College. They were two very difficult games, and I thought Boston College played very well against us. We were very fortunate to come away with a win and we feel good that we were able to."

"The win felt good," added junior Tori Huster. "We came up here and played in some pretty adverse conditions. Its much colder here then it is in Florida and we had to play on turf, but I think it played into our advantage. We kind of pushed that out of our minds. Boston College is a great team and put up a great fight, but I think today was our day."

The Florida State defense was once against dominant, delivering their ACC best eleventh shutout of the season. Led by redshirt freshman keeper Kelsey Wys, the Seminoles have allowed only five goals in conference action, and just eleven goals on the season, both conference best marks. Wys, who leads the ACC in save percentage, finished the game with four saves and her tenth shutout of the season.

"Our defending was very good. I thought overall our team defending and the work of the entire team in defending was quite good. We did enough to get a clean sheet, the win, and now we move on."

In what was a hard fought defensive battle, the Seminoles capitalized on their best opportunity during a penalty kick by Pressley to give the Seminoles the lead, a lead in which they would never relinquish.

"The ball was bouncing in the box and one of our kids went to strike it and hit the ball which bounced off one of the Boston College players arms," added Krikorian. "The referee saw it and called the penalty to give us the penalty kick."

While Florida State came away with the victory, Boston College held the edge in shot opportunities with a 16-10 advantage, but the Seminoles lead the Eagles 6-4 in shots on goal. The Seminoles did not attempt a single corner kick while the Eagles failed to convert on nine corner opportunities.

The Seminoles, who have committed the lowest amount of fouls in the ACC this season, continued to play clean soccer as they were called for only six fouls while Boston College was whistled for ten, including three yellow cards.

Overall Florida State improves to 7-0-2 all-time against Boston College, including 7-0-1 during Krikorian's six-year tenure. The Seminoles will now return home shortly before heading to Cary, North Carolina for the ACC Tournament, which kicks off next Wednesday.

"It has been difficult with all of this travel," said Krikorian."We will get back tonight at probably one or two in the morning and then have to turn right back around and head up to North Carolina on Tuesday. The team is in a very good place right now. I think we knew we needed to compete today to get a result and if we did so we would give ourselves a chance to win. We also know that as we go into ACC tournament and hopefully beyond that the competition will continue to be good and we have to be ready for it."

WAKE FOREST 3, FLORIDA STATE 1
11/03/2010, ACC, Cary, NC

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

'Noles Fall To Wake, 3-1.

The Seminoles bow out early at the ACC Tournament and turn their focus to NCAA's.

CARY, NC - Fourth seeded Florida State (13-5-1) made a quick exit, falling in the first round of the ACC Tournament to fifth seeded Wake Forest 3-1. The Seminoles kept the game tight for the majority of the match, closing the lead to one goal during 52nd minute, but the Demon Deacons would eventually pull away during the 60th minute of the game when they extended their lead to 3-1.

"I thought our kids went out and competed very well," said head coach Mark Krikiorian. "The players followed the game plan, worked hard, gave us a chance to win, but on the day Wake Forest was better and were able to defeat us three to one."

All eleven of the Seminole starters played the entire 90 minutes of action. Freshman Lindsay Rice and Niki Mercier led the Seminole attack with two shots each. Junior Kataya Gohkman scored her first career goal for the Seminoles during the 52nd minute to close Wake Forest's lead to 2-1. Sophomore Breezy Hupp and junior Ella Stephan were both credited with the assist.

"It was started from a long kick by Breezy Hupp," said Krikorian. "Ella Stephan went up for it and competed well. Kataya followed it and knocked it by the goal keeper and into the net."

Freshman goalkeeper Madison Winter made her first career start in goal. Winter finished the game with her first career save.

Overall Wake Forest slightly out-shot Florida State nine to seven, and the teams finished tied on corner kicks with four apiece. Florida State once again played smart soccer, committing only five fouls to Wake Forest ten infractions. The Seminoles had previously defeated Wake Forest at home earlier this season when senior Rachel Lim scored a golden goal to break up a 0-0 tie in the 95th minute of overtime off an assist by fellow senior Janice Cayman.

The match marked the fifth time Florida State and Wake Forest had squared off at the ACC Tournament, as the Seminoles had gone 2-0-2 prior to today's match. The Seminoles all-time record dips to 8-10-3 against the Demon Deacons. The defeat was Krikorian's third loss against Wake Forest, as his Seminoles have gone an outstanding 5-3-1 against the Demon Deacons during his tenure.

"I thought overall it was a good solid game, and a solid performance," said Krikorian. "CC Cobb was quite good dictating play, and from top to bottom I thought it was a good performance by our group."

'Noles Top Blue Raiders, 3-0.

Casey Short scored two second period goals second to give Florida State the victory.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State women's soccer team began their postseason with a bang as they defeated Middle Tennessee 3-0 in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. With the victory Florida State improves to (14-5-1) on the season and advances to the second round to be played on Sunday at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"It was a tale of two halves," said associate head coach Eric Bell. "We didn't come out the way we thought we would, but the second half was much better and I think the group was more relaxed and able to keep the ball and create some scoring opportunities for our group."

The game was closely contended for nearly half of the contest as the two teams stayed tied at zero for the first 44 minutes of action. Sophomore Breezy Hupp would eventually break the scoreless tie with two seconds remaining in the first period when she blasted the game-winning goal from thirty yards out. "It was a big goal, obviously, for a lot of different reasons," said Bell.

"It changed the momentum of the game. You think you're going in at the half and it's an even game. Now we're up a goal and Middle Tennessee has got to make adjustments. Our team is going to be a little more settled down. We can relax a little bit; we can breath. It seemed as though there was a little more pressure on us than we had anticipated. With the goal it allowed us to relax a little more...and we were able to go out and play our game."

Hupp's first period goal was her fourth goal of the season. Tori Huster was credited with the assist, her team leading sixth of the season. The goal was the first time the Blue Raiders have allowed a first period goal since October 10th at Florida International, and the three total goals scored was the most goals allowed by the Blue Raiders since North Carolina scored seven on September 17th. Hupp's goal also boosted the confidence for the Seminoles.

"It was very emotional," said senior captain Amanda DaCosta. "It was so exciting and the bench got really excited. It was important for us to come in at halftime and (say), `All right, let's get back to earth. We can't let that affect us going into the second half.' It was really exciting. It changed everything."

Short's two goals was her second multi goal game of the season as she now has five goals on the season, second most on the team. Short's first goal occurred just a little over five minutes into the second period. "The credit goes to Janice Cayman," said Short. She gave me a great ball. I just shot it the best I could."

Short would score again nine minutes later on an assist by Amanda DaCosta. The assist was DaCosta's 24th assist of her career which currently ranks third all-time in Florida State history. The game also marked her 91st game started, fourth most in school history.

The Florida State defense was once again dominant, delivering their 12th shutout of the season. Led by redshirt freshman keeper Kelsey Wys, the Seminoles have allowed just fourteen goals on the season. Wys, who leads the ACC in save percentage, finished the game with four saves and her 11th shutout of the season.

In a strong effort by the Seminole attack, Florida State held the edge in shot opportunities with a 15-5 advantage, and a 5-1 edge in corner opportunities. Overall the Seminoles lead the Blue Raiders 7-4 in shots on goal. The Seminoles, who have committed the lowest amount of fouls in the ACC this season, continued to play clean soccer as they were called for only five fouls and zero yellow cards.

The game marked Florida State's 11th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament and with the victory the Seminoles improve to 28-9-2 all-time in their NCAA tournament history. Florida State continued to be dominant at home during the postseason, as they improve to 19-1 all-time at home in NCAA Tournament play.

Florida State will now face South Florida who defeated Auburn 3-1 in the second matchup of the night. South Florida pulled away in the second period with two goals by Taylor Patterson and Sharla Passariello. The second round game will be played at 1:00pm at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

'Noles Advance To Sweet 16.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State women's soccer team continued their strong postseason run as they defeated the South Florida Bulls, 2-1 in the second round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. With the victory Florida State improves to (15-5-1) on the season and advances to the Sweet 16.

The Seminoles will host Marquette Saturday (1 p.m.), November 20th at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"Overall I thought it was a good, solid performance in the round of 32 by our group," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I think you saw it was a contrast in playing styles out there. We certainly wanted to have the ball, keep the ball and make the game a little bit beautiful. At times I thought we did so, but at other times we allowed ourselves to get kind of caught up in a more physical style of play. We did what we had to do to advance and at this stage of the tournament, that's what it's about."

The Seminoles struck first with a goal by freshman sensation Kassey Kallman who connected on a shot off a Tiana Brockway corner kick from just inside the box. South Florida would respond with a goal with just fifteen seconds remaining in the first period on a goal by freshman Sharla Passariello that ricocheted off the post from twenty yards out. The goal was Passariello's second of the postseason as the two teams headed into halftime at a 1-1 stalemate.

Florida State would come out aggressively in the second half, and a penalty against USF on a surging Casey Short inside the penalty box provided junior defender Toni Pressley the opportunity to blast in a penalty kick to give the Seminoles a 2-1 lead at the 59:47 mark.

"I typically do not to choose to go to the left," explained Pressley, whose shot to the right was uncontested. "I had been practicing it over a couple of practices so I would be more comfortable, and I think that it worked out well. Now I'm more comfortable going both ways and it will help me in the long run."

The goal was Pressley's fourth of the season, and her team-leading third game-winner of the season. The Seminoles refused to relinquish the lead and will meet Marquette (16-4-3), a Sunday winner over Wisconsin in penalty kicks, as they make their sixth consecutive round of 16 appearance.

"We have a commitment to excellence here," added Krikorian. "That's what it's about. We're asking these players every day to make the right choices...Our belief when we're recruiting the kids is we're going to teach them how to be pros and national team players."

The Seminoles are also eyeing a sixth consecutive NCAA quarterfinal appearance.

"The goal is to compete for national championships," added Krikorian. "That is the goal. We want the best student-athletes we can have, but the goal is to compete for national championships. If we had lost today every one of us would have been disappointed, but we'd go back and re-evaluate on how we can be better. I'm proud of our group...but our work is not done yet."

The Seminole defense was once again dominant against USF, limiting an opponent to one goal or less for the 18th match this season. Led by redshirt freshman keeper Kelsey Wys and senior Amanda DaCosta, the Seminoles have allowed just fifteen goals on the entire season.

In a strong effort by the Seminole attack, Florida State held the edge in shot opportunities with a 12-5 advantage, but USF held a slight 4-3 edge in corner opportunities. Overall the Seminoles lead the Bulls 6-2 in shots on goal. In a very physical game, Florida State committed an unusually high 11 fouls and was carded for a yellow card, while USF was called for 18 fouls and two yellows.

With the victory the Seminoles improve to 29-9-2 all-time in their NCAA tournament history. Florida State continues to be dominant at home during the postseason, as they improve to 20-1 all-time at home in NCAA Tournament play. Florida State has had tremendous success in the early rounds of the tournament, going 9-1 in NCAA Tournament second round games.

'Noles Advance To Elite Eight.

FSU advances to the Elite Eight for the sixth straight season with a 3-0 win over Marquette.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State women's soccer team continued their amazing postseason run as they defeated the Marquette Golden Eagles 3-0 in the third round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. With the victory Florida State improves to (16-5-1) on the season and advances to the Elite Eight for the sixth straight year. Next up for the Seminoles is a trip to No. 1 Stanford (21-0-2) on Friday, November 26 in a battle to advance to the College Cup.

"We're thrilled to be moving on," head coach Mark Krikorian said. "The group from Marquette was very good and certainly pushed us to the limit. Kelsey made a huge save with the score 2-0 to keep the clean sheet. Breezy (Hupp) was able to knock one in at the end to give us a bit of separation. I'm very proud of our group. We came out and worked hard. Our collective defending was outstanding today. We created a number of very good chances – Janice Cayman I thought was special today on the right-hand side with lot of attacking play and creating a number of dangerous chances. Top to bottom it was a good, solid performance by a number of players and we're thrilled to be moving on, and we're excited to go out to California next week."

The Seminoles struck early with a goal by senior Rachel Lim, her first goal of the postseason, as she connected on a beautifully placed pass by freshman Kassey Kallman.

"Kassey (Kallman) had the ball, and I made a move and Tori came across me, dummied the ball and I turned on the goal and had a left-foot hit to the corner," explained Lim.

The goal was quite the moment for Lim, playing her last game at the Seminole Soccer Complex and had just come into the game to replace senior Amanda DaCosta who had to leave the match just four minutes into the contest.

"Amanda's been carrying a little stomach virus for a few days now," Krikorian revealed. "She wasn't able to go, and although the game was important, the health and well-being of our players is always going to be paramount here. We have good players who can come off the bench and contribute to the team as you saw today, and Limmy (Rachel Lim) scored a big one for us today."

Although she didn't start the game, Lim's presence on the field was huge boost for the team needing her senior leadership without senior captain DaCosta in the match.

"Limmy's pretty special, we see her in practice every day, and Breezy is the same," remarked Krikorian. "For folks here watching us train, we see those types of goals from those two kids quite often. For us, it doesn't come as a surprise. With Limmy's strength and Breezy's craft around the box, and the quality of the finish was fantastic. From 1-25 we have a very good team, and on any day any of those players may be called upon to come in and give us a boost and contribute. I think once again the kids came off the bench and gave us some very good minutes and helped lead us into the round of eight."

The Seminoles would enter halftime with a 1-0 edge and would take very little time to strike again in the second half, scoring their second goal during the 54th minute. The play occurred in a blink of an eye as junior Toni Pressley blasted the ball across the length of the field to junior Tori Huster who quickly headed the ball over to junior Ella Stephan who headed the ball into the back of the net for her first goal on the season.

The Seminole defense was once against dominant, delivering their 13th shutout of the season. Led by redshirt freshman keeper Kelsey Wys, the Seminoles have allowed just fifteen goals on the entire season. Wys finished the game with seven saves and her 12th complete game shutout of the season.

"I thought our defending was very good, certainly with Kelsey back there," Krikorian said. "I think we've put a premium on not giving up a lot of chances to opponents and today again was another example of us not giving up a lot of chances, and quite honestly I thought we had some more chances and with a little more luck maybe we finish." "I think we stayed organized with our communication in the locker room before the game," Wys added. "We made an effort in that, and I think it really helps with staying organized and keeping their chances minimal."

Junior Breezy Hupp would put the game out of reach during the 83rd minute when she scored off a pass by sophomore defender Ines Jaurena to put the Seminoles' up 3-0. Florida State now advances to the Elite Eight for the sixth straight season, and aim to make it to the College Cup for the fifth time in school history.

With the victory the Seminoles improve to 30-9-2 all-time in their NCAA tournament history. Florida State continues to be dominant at home during the postseason, as they improve to 21-1-0 all-time at home in NCAA Tournament play. Florida State has also had tremendous success in the Sweet Sixteen, going 7-2 in nine NCAA Tournament third round games.

"I think we had a sound game plan and our players executed it very well, and we get to move on," concluded Krikorian.

'Noles Run Ends In Elite Eight.

Florida State's remarkable season comes to an end with a 5-0 loss to top ranked Stanford.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com.

PALO ALTO, CA - The Florida State women's soccer team amazing postseason run came to an end Friday night as they fell 5-0 against the No. 1 Stanford Cardinal in the fourth round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. With the loss Florida State (16-6-1) ends their season having made it to the Elite Eight or further for the sixth straight year.

"I think we played an outstanding team today in Stanford," head coach Mark Krikorian said. "They have an awful lot of outstanding players, and are very well coached. They played beautiful soccer, and I thought that overall, the better team won...I'm proud of our kids that fought and competed and did the best they could on the day."

The Seminoles kept the game scoreless until the 30th minute when Stanford sophomore Mariah Nogueira struck in a header from a cross from the right by senior All-American Christen Press."

"We knew they were a very good attack-minded team, and we talked about lot of keeping tempo with the game, but we weren't good enough and they were able to get a hold of it more and get a lot of dangerous crosses in," added Krikorian.

The Seminoles would continue to fight hard however and entered halftime with Stanford holding a slight 1-0 edge. Stanford would take very little time to strike in the second half, with a goal during the 55th minute by junior forward Lindsey Taylor, her tenth goal of the season. From that point forward Stanford would continue their scoring adding three more goals.

"The quality of their play...their movement off the ball, they have very good players all over of the field," said Krikorian. "We certainly can look at some of our faults in our defending, but sometimes credit needs to go where it's due."

The Seminole defense faced the very difficult task of defending the top team in the country. Led by redshirt freshman keeper Kelsey Wys, the Seminoles had allowed just 15 goals on the entire season, but by allowing a season high 23 shots by the Seminole keeper could only do her best in a difficult situation, finishing the game with 10 saves.

"All the goals they scored were quality goals, and they did well enough to put a bunch of balls to the back of the net," added Wys.

With the loss, the careers of three seniors, Amanda DaCosta, Janice Cayman and Rachel Lim come to an end. DaCosta finishes her career in the top five all time for Florida State in games played, games started and game winning assists.

"We've been through a lot being here," reflected DaCosta. "Things didn't go our way, but it's a great group of girls we have, and I like what [Coach Krikorian] is doing here." Florida State's record is now 30-10-2 all-time in NCAA tournament play.

While Florida State has been dominant at home during their postseason history, with a 21-1-0 all-time record, it hasn't had as much success on the road with a 4-5-1 record away from home.

Despite the loss, the Seminoles put together a remarkable season, especially considering they played all year without Tiffany McCarty and Jessica Price, the top two scorers from last season as both missed the season due to injury.

"We definitely had to overcome a lot, and different players had to step up in their absence," said DaCosta. "There definitely is a sense of pride [with this team]. We've had a lot of curveballs thrown our way, and I'm very proud of our team."
