FSU Wins Season Opener.

Tiffany McCarty and Jessica Price combine for the only goal in FSU's 1-0 victory.

CORVALLIS, OR - One goal was all that was needed Friday night in Corvallis as No. 5 Florida State (1-0-0) opened the 2011 campaign with a 1-0 victory over No. 19 Oregon State (0-1-0) in front of a packed crowd of 1,127.

Tiffany McCarty scored the lone goal of the match breaking a scoreless tie in the 52nd minute off a pass from Jessica Price to give the Noles the victory.

"The goal felt good," said McCarty. "We had a lot of chances tonight which was frustrating but we ended up with the win in the end."

Following two direct free kicks deep in the Seminoles' offensive third, FSU finally found the back of the net in the second half thanks to McCarty's 29th career goal. Price weaved her way inside the middle of the field before slipping a pass into McCarty, who sent a lower liner that went through the legs of Oregon State goalkeeper Colleen Boyd and inside the left post for the only score of the game.

The score moved McCarty into fourth place all-time at Florida State for goals scored and into sole possession of fifth place with 71 career points. The assist for Price was the 17th of her career. It also marked the ninth time since 2009 that McCarty and Price have combined to score a goal.

"It's fantastic to have them back," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Jess made a great turn, slipped a nice ball through and Tiff ran onto it and finished it nicely. My hope is that we are going to see a lot more of that this year."

With the win, Florida State has won four straight season openers all in shutout fashion. The Seminoles improved to 11-5-1 all-time on opening day, while running their record to .500 (4-4-0) when opening on the road.

"Overall, I thought our performance was pretty good," added Krikorian. "We created a number of good chances, but the quality of the finishes around the box was not good enough. The good news is that we did not give up a great deal of chances tonight. Oregon State is a good team. Their front kids are really dangerous; they are athletic, dynamic in their movements and make good passes as well. We feel very good about coming out of this first game with a win against a very good Oregon State team."

The Seminole backline of Toni Pressley, Kassey Kallman, Tiana Brockway and Ines Jaurena was solid in the season opener limiting the scoring opportunities for the Beavers all night long. Kelsey Wys had a great start in goal for the Garnet and Gold as she made all seven saves in 90 minutes of action to earn the shutout.

"We certainly want to have a clean sheet every time out," added Krikorian. "Our collective defending traditionally has been quite good, and I thought it was again tonight. It starts with the forwards; they make the game predictable and easier for the midfield players. I thought Kelsey came up with one or two very good saves. She did what she had to do and the backline was solid as can be."

"It was a hard fought win," said Brockway. "I think we made it a little harder on ourselves tonight. Playing away from home makes things difficult but with that said we fought all 90 minutes. We didn't let up and finally got that goal. We did a good job of shutting them down on defense."

Freshman Jamia Fields finished with a game-high five shots.

Florida State opened the match taking the first four shots but it was the Beavers who countered with the game's first scoring opportunity in the 15th minute of play. On Oregon State's first corner kick of the evening, Megan Miller sent a long pass to the far post where Chelsea Buckland collected the ball, took a quick dribble and fired a shot on goal. Wys was there with a diving save on the far post to keep the game deadlocked at zero.

Two minutes later, FSU looked to get on the board as freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottir put a shot on goal from just outside the 18-yard box forcing Boyd into a diving save.

Wys thwarted away another Oregon State scoring chance with a great diving save in the 24th minute of action. Off an errant pass by the Seminole backline which resulted in a nearside throw-in for the Beavers in their offensive third, Jenna Richardson took the throw-in and fired a shot from about 22 yards, but Wys was there for yet another diving save.

Florida State went into the half with a 7-4 edge in shots, while both schools recorded two saves and a pair of corner kicks. Fields led all players with three shots in the first half.

The Seminoles came out of the gates at the start of the second half looking to push the tempo as Jaurena and Price recorded shots in the first three minutes of play.

Following McCarty's goal, the Beavers immediately looked to counter after a Seminole foul deep in OSU's defensive third resulted in a pair of point blanking scoring chances. Brittany Galindo sent a long ball into Oregon State's 18-yard box where Erin Uchacz and Melinda Ingalls both recorded shots, but Wys was there to make both saves to maintain FSU's one-goal advantage.

Oregon State would not go away as Wys came up with her sixth save of the evening on a header by Ashley Folsom in the 67th minute.

Kallman put a shot on goal in the 72nd minute off a direct free kick. Brockway sent the ball into the box where Tori Huster put a header on the ball creating a scoring chance for Kallman.

The Beavers managed just one more shot over the final 15 minutes as the Seminoles held on for the one-goal victory.

FSU Falls At Portland.

Tiffany McCarty scores for the second straight game but the Noles drop their first game of the season.

PORTLAND, OR - In a classic battle between two top 10 teams, No. 4 Florida State (1-1-0) came out on the short end of things falling to No. 7 Portland (1-0-0) 2-1 in front of an outstanding crowd of 2,817.

All three goals came in the first half as Danielle Foxhoven scored both goals for Portland including the game-winner on a penalty kick with just 44 seconds left before intermission.

Tiffany McCarty scored for the second straight game as she found the back of the net in the 15th minute to break the scoreless tie.

Florida State finished the game with a 22-11 shot advantage, but only six of those shots were on frame. Three Seminoles finished with a team-high three shots including Jamia Fields, McCarty and Marta Bakowska-Mathews.

"It wasn't for a lack of effort," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought we put in a fine effort, but I am not sure if we were clever enough. There were times when we could have drawn up more rhythm in the play. We were taking shots from distance that had no chance of going on goal. It only takes one second to score a goal. As the game wore on, some of the players thought they had to do things individually. We certainly had enough chances to score the goal (equalizer), but when you have 20 something shots and only six are on the frame, it's not good enough. We will continue to work on that and get better."

Both teams wasted very little getting the offense going on Sunday night as Portland registered the first shot in the second minute of play. Micaela Capelle fired the first shot inside the right hand side of the box from about 16 yards out forcing Kelsey Wys into a diving save. Tiana Brockway returned the favor blasting a shot just over the crossbar from about 26 yards out following a Pilot foul.

The Seminoles got two nice looks over a three minute span beginning in the 13th minute as Dagny Brynjarsdottir recorded a shot wide of the left post from just outside the box. Janice Cayman sent a nice pass into the middle of the field form the left side of the pitch where Brynjarsdottir collected the ball took a touch to her right and fired wide from the top of the box.

McCarty followed in the 15th minute with the first goal of the game to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead. The junior forward timed her run perfectly down the middle of the field between two defenders on a long ball from Wys. McCarty beat Portland keeper Hailee DeYoung one on one, dribbled to the left and sent a low liner into the right corner from 10 yards out for her second goal of the season and an early 1-0 Seminole advantage. Wys registered the assist on the play.

The Seminoles had a great opportunity to add to their lead in the 20th minute on a corner kick. Brockway sent a nice ball into the box where Huster out jumped the competition and put a header shot on goal, but the Pilot defender on the near post was in great position for the save.

Portland countered with a great scoring chance on a corner kick in the 30th minute as Wys made a save on a header from close range by Emma Nelson.

Cayman looked to add to the Seminole lead in the 35th minute as the senior from Belgium fired a shot between two defenders but DeYoung was there for the save.

The Pilots got on the scoreboard in the 37th minute as Foxhoven dribbled through the middle of the Seminole defense and drilled a shot inside the lower left corner from 18 yards to tie the match at one.

Then with just under a minute left to play in the first half, Portland grabbed its first lead of the game on a penalty kick conversion from Foxhoven. The Pilots were awarded a pk opportunity when Capelle was taken down from behind inside the box by Kassey Kallman.

Foxhoven stepped up to the line and slotted the ball inside the left post just beyond the outstretched arms of Wys to give Portland a 2-1 lead.

Florida State opened the second half taking the first five shots with the best scoring opportunity for the Noles coming from Fields, who fired a blast off the crossbar from 25 yards out. The Pilot defenders quickly pounced on the loose ball and kicked it out of harms way.

Hikaru Murakami made her presence felt shortly after entering the game for the first time as she found Fields for a shot that was saved by DeYoung at the 68:23 mark.

Ines Jaurena gave the Pilots a scare in the 73rd minute as her side winding shot from about 19 yards out sailed high over the crossbar. Off a short corner from Brockway, Huster sent a great pass into Jaurena, who one-timed the shot high.

The Seminoles had another great chance to the tie the game in the 79th minute as McCarty received a throw-in from Price and beat two Pilot defenders toward the end line where she blasted a shot just high over the crossbar.

Portland looked to add to its lead with just over five minutes to play but a great save by Wys kept the score at 2-1. Halley Kreminski found herself loose inside the 18-yard box and fired a shot from about 8 yards out, but Wys made a fantastic diving save to keep the deficit at one.

The Seminoles fought valiantly to find the equalizer in final five minutes but it was to no avail as the Pilot defense allowed just one shot the rest of the way out.

Both keepers recorded three saves, while Portland came up with two big defensive team saves to keep the Garnet and Gold off the scoreboard.

Noles Win Home Opener.

Kassey Kallman and Jessica Price connect on the lone goal in the 10th minute in FSU's 1-0 win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Ninth-ranked Florida State (2-1-0) used an early first half goal by Kassey Kallman and held off a pesky New Mexico (1-1-1) squad to win its eighth straight home opener, 1-0, Friday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"It's another game where I thought we had some decent chances but our attack still isn't good enough," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We are trying to possess the ball and keep the ball but there is a fine line between over passing the ball and being dangerous and we are still trying to figure everything out.

"It is good that we got a hard fought win, but I don't think that anyone on this Florida State team is satisfied with the performance today."

Florida State and New Mexico struggled to find an offensive attack all evening long as both teams finished the game with nine shots a piece. The Lobos went into halftime with a 4-2 advantage in shots but the Seminoles made the most of their first half shots scoring on their first attempt of the evening.

The lone goal of the game came in the 10th minute of play as the Garnet and Gold took advantage of an early throw-in inside their offensive third. Jessica Price threw a perfect pass into the box where Kallman flicked the ball inside the near post from about 12 yards out for her first goal of the season.

The assist for Price was her second of the season and second game-winning assist on the year. The game-winner for Kallman was the second of her career.

"She threw that thing in so far that I didn't even have to move," said Kallman. "I just stood there. She did all the work and I just finished it."

"Kassey did a great job of getting on the end of it," said Price. "I just threw it in there as hard as I could and she finished it."

"It sure is," added Krikorian on having the throw-in back as a weapon by Jessica Price. "We think that it is a great weapon and we need to be dangerous in those situations. Fortunately for us we were able to score one on it today."

The Lobos came within inches of knotting the score at one in the 20th minute but Natalie Jenks, who finished with a game-high four shots, hit one off the crossbar. Jenks tried to float a shot over a charging Kelsey Wys, but the ball hit off the crossbar. Tiana Brockway was there for the rebound and kicked the ball out of harm's way.

With less than 10 minutes to play in the first half, New Mexico continued to look for the equalizer as Jael Fanning found a streaking Jennifer Williams running down the right side of the pitch. Williams made a nice inside out move on Kallman before freeing up enough space to fire a shot on goal, but Wys was there for one of her two saves on the night.

Less than four minutes into the second half, a miscue by the Seminole defense nearly cost FSU its lead. Fanning found the ball at her feet from about 10 yards out and sent a shot on goal, but Wys would have nothing of it making the stop to keep the Noles lead at 1-0.

Price nearly added to FSU's lead in the 51st minute as her redirect off a corner kick went off a Lobo defender and just wide of the far post.

Ten minutes later, Price got behind the Lobo defense off a beautiful pass from Janice Cayman. Price found herself one-on-one with New Mexico keeper Kelli Cornell, but one touch too many by the Libertyville, Ill., native allowed Cornell to slide in and break up the scoring chance for Price.

Freshman Marta Bakowska-Mathews came up with the save of the night in the 64th minute off a New Mexico corner. The Lobos played the corner kick quickly as Williams sent a pass out to Fanning, who sent a great cross into the box to a wide open Jenks. Jenks one-timed the ball toward the far post, but Bakowska-Mathews played her mark beautifully as she was there on the far post for the save to keep the shutout intact.

"Fortunately for her she was in the right position," said Krikorian. "She stayed where she should stay and she was able to keep the ball out of the net."

Seven different Seminoles recorded a shot on Friday night as Ines Jaurena and Tiffany McCarty paced FSU with two shots a piece.

"We are still working on putting all the pieces together with finishing and getting everyone in the box" added Price. "We need to work on getting the ball into the back of the net, but I think it will come together for us as the season goes on."

Wys played all 90 minutes in goal for the Noles and made two saves for her 14th career shutout.

"They came after us all game long," added Kallman. "Kudos to the other team, but we stayed strong. There are a few things we need to work on but we kept the shutout."

With the win, FSU extended its home unbeaten streak to 11 games (10-0-1) dating back to September of 2010. The Noles also improved to 14-2-1 all-time in home openers.

FSU Downs UNF, 5-0.

Five different Seminoles score as FSU extends its home unbeaten streak to 12 games.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Ninth-ranked Florida State (3-1-0) pushed its home unbeaten streak to 12 games (11-0-1) thanks to a 5-0 victory over North Florida (1-2-1) on a hot and sunny Sunday afternoon at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Five different Seminoles found the back of the net as Florida State exploded for five goals to remain perfect against the Ospreys in three all-time meetings. The Garnet and Gold needed just 52 minutes on Sunday to equal their goal output through the first three games of the season, while it marked the highest scoring game for the Seminoles since a 4-1 victory over NC State back on October 17, 2010.

"Anytime you score five goals is something you have to be happy about," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I still think that we have another gear and we have another level to find, but overall you walk away from this Friday/Sunday combination pleased with the effort of this team."

Jessica Price led all scorers with three points in the win notching a goal and an assist for the first multi-point performance by a Seminole this year. Tiffany McCarty recorded her team leading third goal of the season in the 56th minute, while Kristin Grubka, Ines Jaurena and Tori Huster each registered their first goals in 2011.

"We have a lot of weapons," said Huster. "We can be very dangerous. This game we really pieced together a lot of things...five goals is pretty good."

"I think we were much more organized today than we were on Friday," added Price. "We came out and put away our chances which was really important for us."

The Seminole defensive unit of Toni Pressley, Kassey Kallman, Tiana Brockway and Jaurena shut down the UNF offense allowing just two shots the entire match, one in each half, with only one shot going on goal. Kelsey Wys got the start in goal and played the entire first half before giving way to Taylor Vancil and Monterae Carter in the second half. Both Vancil and Carter made their Seminole debut on Sunday.

Grubka began the scoring in the 25th minute netting her first collegiate goal off an assist from Seminole newcomer Katie Riley. Riley sent a long ball into the box where FSU's Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Osprey keeper Megan Dorsey got tangled up with each other trying to make a play. Grubka collected the loose ball and one-timed a shot inside the right post past a diving Dorsey from eight yards out to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead. The goal would eventually go down as the game-winner for the Melbourne, Fla., native, while the assist for Riley was her first in a Seminole uniform.

"I was very excited," added Grubka on scoring her first goal. "It was a relief coming from high school into college, this just helps take that pressure off my shoulders."

Just over 10 minutes later, Jaurena would add to the Seminole lead connecting on a blast from just outside the 18-yard box. From down near the end line, freshman Jamia Fields sent a pass back up field to Jaurena, who one-timed a cross inside the left post to give FSU a 2-0 advantage. The assist for Fields was the first of her career.

The Seminoles went into the locker room with an 11-1 shots advantage, while holding the upper hand in corner kicks at 5-1.

Florida State dominated possession in the second half despite taking just five shots. But the Noles were productive with their shot selection scoring three times in a span of 24 minutes.

Huster scored the first goal of the second half finding the back of the net in the 52nd minute on a header from five yards out. Price and Kallman combined on the assist as the goal came off a throw-in. The assist for Price was her team leading third of the season. The Libertyville, Ill., native is now tied for eighth-place all-time for career assists with 19.

Less than four minutes later, McCarty gave the Seminoles a 4-0 lead as she scored on a cross from seven yards out. McCarty took a pass from Janice Cayman on the left side, one touched to her left and sent a lower liner into the right corner for the goal.

The goal for McCarty was her third in four games this year. With 75 career points, McCarty moved into a tie for fourth place all-time at Florida State with Maren Vik Edvardsen (1998-2001).

Price wrapped up the Seminole scoring in the 76th minute with a world class goal for her first goal of the season. The junior forward ran in on a pass down the right hand side from Jordan Johnson, crossed up an Osprey defender with a nice move toward the inside of the 18-yard box and fired a shot into the upper left corner from 15 yards out for the goal.

"It's been awhile for Jessica Price and she was about to be substituted for at the time of her goal as we thought she had played enough minutes. I think that was a flash into the past. It was a nice cut back, a nice move and I don't know if you can hit it any closer to the upper corner than she did. It was a great finish."

The Seminoles outshot UNF 16-2 on the afternoon, while holding a 9-1 advantage in corner kicks.

FSU Battles Past Marquette.

The Seminoles extend their home unbeaten streak to 13 games.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Seventh-ranked Florida State (4-1-0) wrapped up its three-game home stand with a grueling 3-1 victory over No. 11 Marquette (4-1-0) Friday evening handing the Golden Eagles their first loss of the season.

Tori Huster, Jessica Price and Janice Cayman each scored a goal in the win as the Seminoles extended their home unbeaten streak to 13 games (12-0-1), the third longest streak in school history. Cayman led the Seminoles with three points on the night with a goal and an assist while recording a team-high two shots.

In a rematch from last year's NCAA Tournament third round game, a match won by the Seminoles 3-0, both teams battled it out for 90 minutes on Friday with the Golden Eagles holding the advantage in shots (12-6) and corner kicks (2-1).

"I certainly think the run of play over 90 minutes was more held by Marquette than it was for us," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "There was a period in the second half after Marquette scored that we did impose ourselves in the game. We did create some good attacking chances and had some decent possessions. Overall, we have to feel good about the win but not necessarily the full performance."

The Seminoles broke out to an early 1-0 lead on the first shot of the game thanks to Huster's second goal of the season. Off a Seminole throw-in, Huster redirected a deflection from Cayman inside the left post from seven yards out to give FSU the advantage in the eighth minute of play.

Marquette's best scoring chance in the first half came in the 38th minute as Lindsey Page fed Rachael Sloan between two defenders. After a couple dribbles, Sloan fired a shot wide of the far post and out of bounds as the Seminoles maintained their one-goal lead into the half.

Both schools combined for six shots in the first half with the Seminoles limited to just two.

The Golden Eagles came out of the gates with the momentum controlling the offensive tempo while recording the first three shots of the second half. The third shot was the equalizer as Page sent a pass from the end line back towards the top of the 18-yard box that Britney Scott one-timed inside the lower right corner to tie the game at one. The goal was Scott's first of the season.

"I think that Marquette came out of halftime buzzing and we knew they would," said Krikorian. "They are a high energy team. They got a deserved goal. They worked hard for it, it was a quality ball and a quality finish and they deserved to make it 1-1 at that time."

Marquette continued to apply the offense pressure until Toni Pressley sent a shot just wide in the 58th minute. On a give-and-go from Cayman, Pressley slipped behind a defender into an open spot on the left side of the field and bent a shot just wide of the far post.

The Seminoles would break the tie in the 65th minute on spectacular individual effort from Price. The redshirt junior forward dribbled down the left hand side of the field and tried to beat a Golden Eagle defender toward the end line. With the defender maintaining inside position on the ball and trying to let it roll out of bounds, Price made a quick inside move around the defender to regain possession. As Marquette keeper Natalie Kulla was charging on the play, Price slotted the ball between the post and the goalkeeper inside the upper right corner to give the Noles a 2-1 advantage. The goal was Price's second of the season and first game-winner.

"We all know that Jess has pretty good quickness and pace," added Krikorian. "She was able to get around the defender, gain possession of the ball, keep it in play, dance along the end line and bend the ball into the corner; a big goal for us at a very important moment."

"I think we showed ourselves as a mature team fighting back from that 1-1 tie," said Cayman. "Jess did a great job of getting us that lead and helped to settled down the game for us."

"I actually took a bad touch toward the end line and I thought I would not be able to get there," said Price. "Then the defender stopped and didn't put her body in front of me, so I knew I could run around her. The goalie stepped out and took a bad angle, so I poked it in the goal."

Marquette made a late charge to tie the match up for the second time Friday night but FSU keeper Kelsey Wys came up huge to keep the lead intact. Ally Miller made a strong run down the right hand side of the field and fired a bending shot toward the far post. Wys made a fantastic diving save to her right to keep the ball out of the net. The rebound would go to the feet of Page but her shot would be blocked by the Seminole defense and played out of harm's way.

"We all know that Kelsey Wys is a big-time goalkeeper," added Krikorian. "When you are playing at the level that we are and you are playing against all these teams, top-10, top-20, your goalkeeper is going to have to steal a goal for you once in a while. Those were two big saves at the end to preserve the win for us."

Wys finished the game with three saves in 90 minutes of action.

Cayman sealed the match in the 90th minute with her first goal of the season to give FSU a 3-1 lead. The Belgium native took a pass from Tiana Brockway and blasted a shot from a good 30 yards out beating Kulla with a goal into the upper left corner.

"I saw the goalkeeper off her line so I thought it was worth the shot," added Cayman.

FSU Blazes UAB.

Toni Pressley registers a goal and an assist in leading the Seminoles to their second road win of the season.

BIRMINGHAM, AL - Seventh-ranked Florida State (5-1-0) recorded its fourth straight victory with a 4-0 win over UAB (2-3-0) on a rainy Sunday afternoon in Birmingham. Four different Seminoles found the back of the net in the win over the Blazers, while Toni Pressley led all players with three points on a goal and an assist to tie a career-high in the win.

After taking a 1-0 lead into the break, FSU broke things open with three, second half goals from Jamia Fields, Tiffany McCarty and Kassey Kallman to remain perfect against the Blazers in three all-time meetings.

"In the first half, UAB did a good job of coming out and were strong in their defending," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Our kids seemed a little bit sluggish and lethargic as the Marquette game on Friday took a little bit out of them. But playing a home game on Friday, getting up and traveling all the way here to Birmingham and having to play against a good UAB team on Sunday is a challenge.

"The good news is that we were able to keep the shutout and score four goals. I thought our movement off the ball and some of the attacking play wasn't sharp enough but sometimes that comes with a bit of fatigue."

The Seminole defense posted their fourth shutout of the season limiting the Blazers to six shots including just two shots on goal. Making her first start of the season, Taylor Vancil played all 90 minutes and made two saves to record her first shutout and win as a Seminole.

FSU also received solid contributions from everyone on the team as Krikorian used 21 players on Sunday.

"We know in order to be successful we have to use the bench," added Krikorian. "We know that these players coming off the bench are all good players and that they are going to have significant minutes as the season goes on. It's nice to see them come in, some scoring goals, some saving goals, some just winning balls in the midfield and having good plays. I thought the bench did a good job and Taylor was solid as can be in the goal."

Florida State grabbed the lead in the 15th minute when Pressley nailed a shot from about 35 yards out to give the Noles a 1-0 advantage. The Seminoles controlled possession through the early going despite taking just one shot and attempting a pair of corner kicks under soggy field conditions at UAB. But Pressley broke the scoreless tie when she found the upper right corner of the net from the left hand side of the field for her first goal of the season.

"I beat my player and had room to dribble," added Pressley. "I really don't know; I just zeroed in on the goal and hit it. I actually didn't think it was going to go in but it did so it was a pleasant surprise."

"It was a nice goal," added Krikorian. "I think that we have so many different weapons that as teams begin to prepare for us they have to pay attention to a lot of different things. That is obviously something that we have and hopefully she can continue to get forward and have those opportunities again."

The Seminoles looked to increase their lead in the 23rd minute on their third corner of the game, but Blazer goalkeeper Katie Getzinger made a great diving save on a header from Ella Stephan. The ball trickled toward the near post but a UAB defender was able to clear the ball out of harm's way to keep FSU's lead at 1-0.

UAB's best scoring chance came on its only shot of the first half as Carolyn Polcari tried to sneak a shot inside the top shelf but the ball sailed high over the crossbar.

Fields tried to add a goal late in the first half but was fouled hard with just under a minute remaining. Ines Jaurena played a quick pass out to Tiana Brockway, who fired a shot from just outside the 18-yard box high over the crossbar as time expired.

FSU went into the half with the edge in shots (6-1) and corners (4-0), while Blazer keeper Getzinger made three saves.

The first shot of the second half came off the foot of Jaurena in the 55th minute as the French defender fired a shot high over the crossbar.

Less than a minute later, UAB's Polcari sailed a shot high from just outside the right corner of the box for the Blazers first shot of the second half.

Florida State would add to its lead in the 58th minute on goal by Fields to give the Noles a 2-0 advantage. The freshman forward put a header on a pass from Marta Bakowska-Mathews that found the back of the net for her first goal of the season. The assist for Bakowska-Mathews was her first of 2011.

The trio of McCarty, Jessica Price and Pressley would combine to give FSU a commanding 3-0 lead in the 63rd minute. Following a Florida State foul deep in its offensive third, Blazer keeper Getzinger took the free kick and sent it down the middle of the field. Pressley won possession with a brilliant header to Price. The redshirt junior from Libertyville, Ill., made a nice spin move toward the middle of the field and took a couple dribbles before sending a pass up field to McCarty. McCarty ran on and dribbled once, drawing the keeper forward before slotting a low liner into the back of the net for her fourth goal of the season.

The assist for Price was her fourth of the season as she has now recorded a point in four straight games.

With the sun finally peeking through for a brief moment, the Seminoles wrapped up the scoring in the 85th minute on a header by Kallman off a corner from Jordan Johnson. Johnson sent a beautiful bending ball toward the near post that Kallman won with a great header that found the inside of the near post for her second goal of the season. The assist for Johnson was her second.

The Seminoles finished the game out shooting UAB 13-6, while maintaining a 7-3 advantage in corners.

McCarty and Brockway paced the Noles with three shots a piece, while Polcari led UAB with three shots.

"Overall, it was good performance for us," said Pressley. "At times we made it a little harder for ourselves in the movements that we chose to make and the balls that we chose to play each other. But coming away with the win and scoring four goals is great."

Crazy Win For Noles.

Tiffany McCarty paces Florida State with two goals and an assist.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Fifth-ranked Florida State (6-1-0) continued its domination over Florida in Gainesville defeating the ninth-ranked Gators (4-2-0) 3-2 in a back-and-forth contest Friday night. Tiffany McCarty led the offensive charge for the Seminoles as she had a hand in all three scores with two goals and an assist.

With the win Friday night, the Seminoles have captured four of the last five meetings in Gainesville, while 11 of the last 14 games since 2000 have been decided by one goal including the last six.

"That was a great soccer game," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Two very good teams, a true battle of two top-10 teams. Florida was everything we expected them to be. They have great players, are well coached and they gave us everything we could handle tonight."

"It was an amazing game," said senior Janice Cayman. "We played really well. I thought it was our best game so far this year. You kind of get pumped up having the whole crowd against you, but we had a really nice section of Nole supporters which really helped us get this win tonight."

Friday night's game was played in front of a crowd of 4,671 - the third largest crowd in UF Soccer history.

McCarty tied a career-high with two goals on Friday night as both came in the second half including the game-winner in the 72nd minute. The deciding goal came less than five minutes after the Gators had tied the game at two.

McCarty and Dagny Brynjarsdottir connected on a great give-and-go for the game-winner. With Brynjarsdottir in the middle of the field, she slotted McCarty running in from the right. The Laurel, Md., native took a touch and one-timed it past a diving Taylor Burke inside the left post for her second goal of the evening.

"Dagny gave me the ball, I played it back to her and she played a great through pass and I was just thinking get it on frame, get it on frame, we need this goal," said McCarty. "I just placed it and it went in."

Brynjarsdottir had an outstanding game for the Seminoles registering her first career points on a goal and an assist in her first game against the Gators.

With two goals and an assist, McCarty moved into a tie for second place on the all-time Seminole record books with 34 goals, while she moved into sole possession of third place with 82 career points. It also marked McCarty's eighth career multi-goal game.

"She has been threatening and threatening and has scored a few goals already this year," added Krikorian. "Today she was very important to us."

"I was really pumped up for the game," said McCarty. "Florida is always a rivalry game. Being here and hearing all their fans really pumped us up. We were all just excited to go out and get this win."

The Seminoles wasted very little time cracking the scoreboard on Friday night as Brynjarsdottir found the back of the net in the fourth minute of play for her first collegiate goal. The Icelandic native took a deflection off a Gator defender, dribbled once toward the middle of the field and blasted a shot from 18 yards out. The ball was perfectly struck as it caromed off the diving fingers tips of Gator keeper Taylor Burke and into the top left corner to give FSU the early 1-0 lead.

McCarty came within inches of giving the Noles a 2-0 advantage as she nailed a blast off the crossbar from about 35 yards out in the 20th minute. With the Gator keeper playing a high line, the junior forward tried to catch Burke napping and was almost successful if it wasn't for a couple of inches.

Brynjarsdottir had a great chance for her second goal of the evening in the 28th minute. Tori Huster send a high pass into the box and Brynjarsdottir timed her run beautifully beating two Gator defenders but her first touch was too hard as the ball went out of bounds.

The Gators first shot didn't come until the 32nd minute when Erika Tymrak sent a shot high from about 24 yards out.

Jamia Fields got in on the action in the 34th minute as her first shot went wide right. On a Seminole throw-in, Ines Jaurena found Fields open at the top of the box. The freshman forward took one touch to her left and blazed a shot wide and out of bounds.

Despite Florida State controlling the offensive tempo throughout the first half, Florida found a burst of momentum in the final minute following a Seminole foul. The UF free kick was sent out of bounds off a header by an FSU defender and on the ensuing corner, Tymrak would tie the game on a great run and strike. The Gators took a quick corner and found Tymrak, who dribbled across the field and found the inside right post from 10 yards out to tie the game at one.

After the first half, Florida State held the edge in shots at 4-2, while both schools attempted three corner kicks.

The second half started with a quick Seminole counter just 36 seconds in as Cayman fed McCarty, who fired high and wide of the left corner.

Less than two minutes later, Huster fired a shot from just inside the 18-yard box forcing Burke into a save, the first of the game for either team.

The Seminoles continued to apply offensive pressure early in the second half and were rewarded in the 55th minute when McCarty nailed a cross off the left post and in the net to give FSU a 2-1 advantage. Tiana Brockway started the combination as she fed the ball into the box that Huster headed to her right. McCarty ran into the empty space, collected the ball and beat Burke with a shot off the left post for her fifth goal of the season.

A nice diving save from Burke denied McCarty of her second goal of the evening in the 61st minute. Cayman took the ball down the left hand side of the pitch and fed McCarty inside the 18-yard box.

Florida went on the attack in the 67th minute when Annie Speese fed Tahnai Annis between two Seminole defenders. The shot deflected on a defender and out of bounds for a corner kick.

On the ensuing Gator corner from Speese, Holly King found the back of the net for her first goal of the season on a deflection inside the eight-yard box.

After McCarty's second goal gave Florida State its third lead of the game, the Gators had a great chance to tie the game again, but Wys made an outstanding save to keep the lead intact with less than three minutes to play. Havana Solaun found a seem down the middle of the field and took a shot as Wys was sliding in for the ball. The Seminole keeper got just enough on the ball to force it over the crossbar and out of bounds.

FSU finished the game with an 11-6 advantage in shots, while the Gators led 6-4 in corners. Both keepers finished the game with two saves.

"From front to back, I thought this was our best performance of the season," said Krikorian. "We needed it tonight. Florida is a very good team. I thought our group came to play and showed a great deal of competitive spirit. To find a way to get the result and then lock down the fort at the end was pretty good."

FSU Blanks Mercer.

Freshmen Kristin Grubka and Jamia Fields both record a goal and an assist in the win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Fifth-ranked Florida State (7-1-0) put the finishing touches on its non-conference regular season schedule with a 4-0 shutout over Mercer (4-2-0) Sunday afternoon in front of a crowd of 872 at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Freshmen Kristin Grubka and Jamia Fields paced the Seminole offense with a goal and an assist for their first career multi-point performance to push FSU's win streak to six in a row. Tiana Brockway and Tiffany McCarty also found the back of the net on Sunday with Ines Jaurena and CC Cobb picking up assists.

With the victory, the Garnet & Gold extended their home unbeaten streak to 14 games (13-0-1). It has been over a year since FSU suffered its last loss inside the friendly confines of the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The Seminoles limited the Bears to just four shots on the afternoon including one in the first half to registered their fifth shutout of the season and third at home. FSU's Kelsey Wys started in goal and played the entire first half to earn the win as she moved to 6-1-0 on the year. Taylor Vancil started the second half and made a save in over 42 minutes of action, while Monterae Carter finished the game between the posts and recorded a save.

"I thought that between Friday and today that we had two pretty good performances," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "If we can maintain this level and continue to keep the ball like we have and keep being nice and tight in our defending then we will be a hard to play against."

Florida State came out of the gates and put the pressure on Mercer early with several great scoring chances through the first six minutes of action.

In the first minute, Toni Pressley made a long dribble down the left side of the pitch, ran between two Bear defenders and blasted a shot from roughly 13 yards out that caromed off the left post.

Following the first Seminole corner of the game, Brockway sent a great ball into the box that Ella Stephan put a header on goal forcing Mercer keeper Cagney Valloch into a save.

Less than two minutes later on another FSU corner kick by Brockway, Tori Huster was denied a goal off a header as she flicked a shot off the crossbar. Kassey Kallman tried to put away the rebound but Valloch was up for the early challenge making her second save of the game.

In the 16th minute, Fields sent a great cross into the box that Jessica Price timed perfectly, one-timing a header that went just wide of the left post and out of bounds.

The Seminoles finally broke through with the game's first goal in the 32nd minute when Jaurena and Fields found Grubka to give the Noles a 1-0 lead. The Melbourne, Fla., native beat Valloch with a low lining cross that found the left corner of the net from the right side of the box. The goal was Grubka's second of the season and second game-winner.

"We were working hard in the first half," said Grubka. "We had a lot of good looks on goal with balls hitting off the posts and the crossbar. But I feel that me and Jamia work well together up top. She found me and the ball went in."

Fields and Grubka would connect again just over two minutes later to give FSU a 2-0 advantage. This time it was Fields that scored as she put away a header from about four yards out off a deflected shot from Grubka.

"I'm trying to score all the time, but getting this first goal at home is special," said Fields.

Brockway added to FSU's lead in the 37th minute as her corner kick bent inside the far post for her first collegiate goal.

"I thought we came out strong," added Krikorian. "It is a bit of a test coming back from an emotional game on Friday against Florida, traveling there and coming back late on Friday evening. The challenge of playing such a rivalry game with Florida and the emotion that goes into it, I thought our kids came in and brought our A-game, especially in the first half."

Florida State finished the first half with a 16-1 advantage in shots.

McCarty put the finishing touches on the scoring Sunday afternoon finding the back of the net in the 73rd minute for her team leading seventh goal of the season. McCarty received a great pass from Cobb that allowed her to beat Mercer keeper Cristina Guilarte and go one-on-one with a Bear defender. McCarty was able to fend off the Bear defender and maintain possession of the ball with a few more dribbles toward the net before putting the ball away from close range to give FSU a 4-0 lead.

McCarty finished with a game-high five shots including four on goal in 53 minutes of action. Grubka, Pressley and Jessica Price each finished with three shots. Florida State tied a season-high with 22 shots on the afternoon.

Mercer's Washida Blackman led the Bears with two shots.

"We knew we had to come out today and keep the intensity because we were coming off a really good game against Florida," added Fields. "It was important for us to maintain that same intensity as we move into conference play next week."

FSU Drops ACC Opener.

The Seminoles are shutout for the first time this season.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Third-ranked Florida State (7-2-0, 0-1-0 ACC) fell to No. 13 Wake Forest (7-1-0, 1-0-0 ACC) 2-0 in the ACC opener for both teams Thursday evening at Spry Stadium. It marked the first time this year that the Seminoles were held scoreless in a game.

FSU traveled to Winston-Salem in search of just its second win in nine visits but the Seminoles could never find the back of the net despite several great scoring chances including three balls that hit off the crossbar in the second half.

The Seminoles finished the match out shooting the Deacs 14-9, while holding a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks. Tiffany McCarty led the Noles with four shots, while Ines Jaurena and Toni Pressley each took three shots in the loss.

Katie Stengel took care of all the scoring on Thursday night finding the back of the net twice, once in each half, to up her season total to an ACC best 10 goals on the year.

"I thought overall it was a good, solid performance," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought in the first half we created enough to at least score a goal, but we weren't precise enough around the penalty box to put one in the net. Unfortunately, we gave up one late in the first half and sometimes that can come back to bite you."

Stengel did just that as she found the back of the net with a minute and 23 seconds remaining in the first half to break a scoreless tie and give the Demon Deacons a 1-0 lead at the half.

The sophomore forward got in behind the Seminole defense on a long pass from Alisha Woodson. Stengel ran in on the ball, took one dribble and sent a low liner from about 15 yards past a diving Kelsey Wys and into the left corner of the net. The goal marked the first time that Florida State did not score first in a game this year.

Stengel registered the first shot of the game in the second minute of play forcing Wys into a save situation. On a Wake Forest throw-in, the ball got to the feet of Stengel, who sent a low lining kick from just outside the 18-yard box but the Seminole keeper was there for the diving save.

Pressley recorded the Noles first scoring chance of the evening in the 10th minute sending a shot inches over the crossbar. With the Garnet & Gold controlling the offensive tempo in the early going, McCarty sent a pass back up toward the 18-yard box that Pressley ran in on and one-timed a shot high and out of play.

Off a Seminole throw-in at 24:55 in the first half, Marta Bakowska-Mathews sent a ball back toward the top of the box where Jaurena fired a shot just wide of the top left corner.

Minutes later Wake Forest went on the offensive as Rachel Nuzzolese fired a shot from the right corner of the 18-yard box on a failed clear by the Seminole defense. Wys was there for her second save of the game to keep the game deadlocked at zero.

The Demon Deacons went into the locker room with a 7-5 shots advantage and the lead, while both schools registered two corner kicks apiece.

In the second half, the iron was unkind to the Seminoles as Tiffany McCarty hit two off the crossbar and Pressley another. McCarty had another great scoring chance from about 12 yards out that was blocked by a Demon Deacon defender.

Janice Cayman recorded the first shot of the second half for either team firing a blast wide of the net from about 20 yards out off a long kick from Wys.

The Deacs increased their lead to 2-0 on a goal in the 57th minute courtesy of Stengel's second goal of the evening. This time using her head, Stengel flicked the ball inside the right post on a great cross from Jackie Logue.

Less than four minutes later, McCarty recorded her first shot of the game but the Deacon defense came up with a huge block to force a corner kick. Tori Huster fed McCarty who took on two defenders, got around one with a nice move toward the middle of the field and fired a shot that was blocked.

The Seminoles could not find a break in the 68th minute as two shots went off the crossbar. Pressley sent a high kick that the wind carried and almost found the back of the net but the ball hit off the crossbar. Thirty seconds later McCarty clanked one off the crossbar to keep the Noles scoreless.

The Laurel, Md., native found the crossbar once more in the 82nd minute to cap the frustration that loomed over the Seminoles all evening long.

FSU pushed the tempo in the final 10 minutes in search of those two elusive goals but the Deacon defense was up for the task in posting their fifth shutout of the season.

"I thought we came out fine in the second half but again small details are what hurt us," added Krikorian. "A nice cross was played in and Stengel was on the end of it. We left her open and she is going to bury those chances.

"Down 2-0 makes it very difficult to fight your way back, but I thought our kids were resilient and created enough chances to again knock one in and then see how the game goes from there. We didn't get the bounce to go our way and maybe we didn't deserve to get the bounce going our way tonight. We will now go back, look at the film, re-evaluate and get ready for a very good Duke team on Sunday."

DUKE 2, FLORIDA STATE 1

FSU Falls At Duke.

Cayman scores with over a minute left in regulation as the Noles drop their second straight to open ACC play.

DURHAM, NC - Third-ranked Florida State (7-3-0, 0-2-0 ACC) dropped its second straight ACC contest falling to No. 5 Duke (9-1-0, 1-0-0 ACC) 2-1 Sunday afternoon at Koskinen Stadium.

FSU could not overcome a late two-goal deficit despite finding the back of the net on a header by Janice Cayman with just over a minute in regulation as the Seminoles fall to 0-2 in the ACC for the first time since 2000.

"It's a long season," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We tell the kids all the time that it is a marathon not a sprint. We can't continue to have the same type of situation where we are creating the chances and not scoring and giving up goals. Once we start scoring goals, I think we can probably score a bunch of them. But we need to start finishing these chances. There are too many really good chances that we are not burying. We will keep working and hopefully get better."

Florida State outshot Duke 15-14 in the match, while holding the advantage in corner kicks at 6-3. But it wasn't enough as the Seminoles remain winless inside Koskinen Stadium all-time in nine matches falling to 0-5-4.

With the Seminoles trailing 2-0, Florida State attempted a furious comeback starting with a goal by Cayman with a minute and two seconds left in regulation. Cayman took a pass from Jessica Price and headed the ball into the back of the net for her third goal of the season to cut the deficit to one.

Following the restart, Florida State managed to gain possession of the ball and pushed forward trying to find the equalizer when Jamia Fields was fouled from behind from about 35 yards out. With 10 seconds remaining, Toni Pressley attempted a quick restart but the ball was kicked off a Duke player and floated into the air as time expired.

Tiana Brockway and Jamia Fields led the Noles with three shots a piece.

"In some ways this game was similar to our match Thursday night against Wake Forest," added Krikorian. "I thought we created quite a bit in the first half and could not put one in the back of the net."

Tori Huster registered the first shot of the game in the third minute of play on a header off a Seminole throw-in. Price sent a floater into the box that Kassey Kallman won with a header. Huster then out jumped the competition to the ball placing a header on frame forcing Duke keeper Tara Campbell into a save situation.

Minutes later, Tiffany McCarty had a one-on-one opportunity after making a great move to get past the Blue Devil keeper. But the junior forward could not get a good look on goal as she dribbled down the left side of the pitch with a Duke defender at her side sending a shot wide of the left post.

Duke got its first great scoring chance off the first corner kick of the game in the 10th minute of play. Gilda Doria sent the corner into the far side of the 18-yard box where Kaitlyn Kerr fired a header high over the crossbar.

Florida State countered as Pressley one-timed a shot wide of the left post off a great cross from Cayman with less than eight minutes remaining in the first half. Huster and Cayman combined on a give-and-go from the right side of the pitch with Cayman taking the pass down toward the end line before sending a cross back towards the top of the box. Pressley ran in on the pass a fired a shot wide.

The Blue Devils scored first in the 40th minute off a goal by Chelsea Canepa. Molly Lester sent a cross into the box from the right corner of the pitch that Kelsey Wys dove and deflected. The ball bounced to the feet of Canepa, who one-timed a shot inside the left post for her second goal of the season.

Duke came out of the locker rooms aggressive taking the first seven shots of the second half with its best scoring chance coming off the foot of Laura Weinberg in the 54th minute. But the shot was saved by Wys to keep the Seminole deficit at one.

"The only thing I was disappointed about was the way we came out to start the second half," said Krikorian. "The first 10 to 15 minutes our group seemed a little disinterested and maybe frustrated but after that I thought we settled it back down and created some pretty good chances. But credit to Duke, they stood strong and denied whatever decent chances we had on goal. We know that we need to put the ball into the back of the net if we want to win."

The Seminoles looked for the equalizer in the 59th minute on a shot by Tiffany McCarty but Campbell was there for the save. Jaurena sent a long cross from the right side of the field to the far post that McCarty one-timed with a header on goal. Campbell was able to get enough of her hand on the ball for the initial save and then recovered in enough time to keep the ball from crossing the line.

On a direct free kick from about 35 yards out, Brockway sent a low lining kick that made it through the Blue Devil wall but was saved by Campbell.

In the 67th minute, Jaurena and Fields worked on a give-and-go with the French native finding space in the middle of the field before sending a shot just wide of the left post to keep the score at 1-0.

Kelly Cobb gave the Blue Devils a 2-0 lead as she put away her own rebound after hitting her initial shot off the post. The freshman forward redirected a pass on goal but the shot ricocheted off the post. With Wys tangled in the net after make a save attempt on the first shot, Cobb easily put away the rebound to give Duke the two-goal lead with less than two minutes remaining.

FLORIDA STATE 6, CLEMSON 2
09/22/2011, CLEMSON, SC

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Goal Outburst In Win.

Tiffany McCarty registers her first career hat trick in the win.

CLEMSON, SC - Tenth-ranked Florida State (8-3-0, 1-2-0 ACC) broke out of its scoring slump on Thursday night with a season-high six goals en route to a 6-2 victory over Clemson (5-4-0, 0-2-0 ACC) inside historic Riggs Field. The win snapped FSU's two-game losing streak while marking its first win in the ACC this year.

The Garnet & Gold continued their dominance over the Tigers running their win streak to six in a row while extending their unbeaten streak in the series to 13 games (11-0-2).

Tiffany McCarty recorded a career-high with three goals in the win as it marked the first hat trick by a Seminole in over two years when Becky Edwards netted three against Jacksonville in the 2009 season opener. The other three goals came off the foot of Jessica Price, Tori Huster and Janice Cayman.

The six goals are the most scored by the Seminoles since equaling that amount in a 6-0 shutout against Stetson last year. The goal outburst was a great sight for the Seminoles after scoring just one goal in back-to-back road losses at Wake Forest and Duke last weekend. The six goals by the Seminoles were also the most in an ACC regular season contest in school history.

"Six goals is a lot of goals," said McCarty. "But on the other end we had to score that many tonight because we got a little off balanced tonight and lost our focus halfway through the second half. All those goals helped us, but we are happy that we got three points."

Jamia Fields, Kristin Grubka and Cayman registered multi-point performances on Thursday night with Fields and Grubka recording career-highs with two assists each, while Cayman tied a career-high with four points on a goal and two assists. It was the Belgians first career two assist game.

FSU ran out to a 5-0 lead before Clemson struck back with two unanswered goals in the second half to cut the deficit to three. McCarty silenced any thoughts of a Tiger comeback as she found the back of the net in the 88th minute for her third goal of the evening.

With three goals on the night, McCarty moved within two of the Seminole all-time record held by Cindy Schofield, who scored 40 from 1999 to 2002.

"I thought we came out and played pretty well tonight," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We had a great start and finished the first half strong. We also came out strong to start the second half, scored two goals in the first 15 minutes of play and had control of the game. But then we got a little bit sloppy and allowed Clemson to get back in the game. It definitely changed the momentum. I thought their kids fought hard and did a great job battling, competing and making it difficult for us to play."

The Seminoles wasted very little time to crack the scoreboard on Thursday night as Price found the back of the net just a minute and 54 seconds into the contest. On a failed clear by the Tiger defense, Price dribbled through a pair of Clemson defenders along the top of the 18-yard box before sending a low-lining shot on goal. Tiger keeper Lauren Arnold made a diving stab at the ball but it trickled off her fingertips and inside the right post for Price's third goal of the season and a 1-0 FSU lead.

Florida State added to its lead in the 12th minute on Cayman's third goal of the season. With the Seminoles maintaining possession on a throw-in, Price hurled the ball into the box with Kassey Kallman out jumping the competition and flicking the ball back toward the top of the 18-yard box. Fields settled the ball and passed back behind to Ines Jaurena, who one-timed a shot from about 20 yards out. Arnold made the initial save as the ball deflected off the crossbar. Cayman was all alone to put away the rebound and give the Seminoles a two-goal advantage. Jaurena was credited with an assist on the play her second on the year.

The Noles capped the scoring in the first half as McCarty and Fields connected for the first of two scoring opportunities on the night. Fields sent a pass forward to McCarty, who made a long run down the middle of the field. From 10 yards out, the junior forward stopped on a dime and sent a cross inside the left post for the goal to give FSU a 3-0 lead.

The Seminoles went into the locker room with a 10-3 advantage in shots, while taking three corner kicks and holding Clemson to zero attempts. Jaurena, Fields and Cayman led the Noles with two shots apiece. Kelsey Wys started in goal and made two saves in 45 minutes of action.

"Jess just exploded and the quality of the finish was quite good giving us a bit of a boost in the early going," added Krikorian. "We attacked in a lot of different ways and I thought it was pretty good for the first 60 minutes. Unfortunately, we let down a little bit and they certainly picked up their intensity and made it a tough game tonight."

Fields and McCarty connected for the second time on Thursday night needing just 40 seconds into the start of the second half to give the Noles a 4-0 lead. Fields sent a pass to McCarty, who dribbled toward the middle of the field and nailed a bending shot into the upper right corner from about 22 yards outs.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 5-0 when Huster found the back of the net for her third goal of the season on a double assist from Grubka and Cayman.

Clemson answered 56 seconds later with its first goal of the evening when Liska Dobberstein put away a loose ball to make the score 1-0. Vanessa Laxgang created the scoring chance for the Tigers as her initial shot was saved by Taylor Vancil. The ball trickled away from the Seminole keeper and Maddy Elder put a shot on goal was it was blocked by the Seminole defense. The loose ball came to the feet of Dobberstein who put the ball away for the goal.

The Tigers' second goal came on a penalty kick from Stacey Huddleston in the 68th minute. FSU was called for a foul in the box leading to the second pk allowed by the Seminoles this year.

McCarty finished the scoring in the 88th minute as Kristin Grubka and Cayman combined for the assist on FSU's sixth goal of the match.

McCarty and Huster finished with a team-high four shots.

Vancil played the entire second half and made a career-high four saves in 45 minutes of action.

"Tonight was definitely a confidence booster for us," added McCarty. "I think the fact that we got three points is good in itself. Now we have to move on and bring our A-game against North Carolina next Thursday."

FSU Falls To UNC.

The Tar Heels net two first half goals as the Seminoles fall at home for the first time in 15 games.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Tenth-ranked Florida State (8-4-0, 1-3-0 ACC) fell to ninth-ranked North Carolina (7-2-0, 2-1-0 ACC) 2-0 Thursday evening at the Seminole Soccer Complex in front of a packed house of 1,876, the eighth largest crowd all-time.

UNC netted two first half goals and blanked the Seminoles for the second time this year limiting the Garnet and Gold to just three shots on goal all night long. The loss was the first for FSU at home in 15 games snapping a 14-game home unbeaten streak (13-0-1) which dated back to last season.

North Carolina struck first in the 15th minute when Amber Brooks found the back of the net for her second goal of the season. Brooks sent a low-liner on goal from about 16 yards out. FSU goalkeeper Kelsey Wys made a diving save on the play, but the ball short hopped Wys and trickled into the net to give the Tar Heels the early 1-0 advantage. Kealia Ohai and Ranee Premji were credited with assists on the play.

The Tar Heels increased their lead to 2-0 in the 29th minute when Courtney Jones scored her second goal of the season. The senior forward received a pass from Brooks, got inside position on the Seminole defense running down the right side of the pitch, made a few dribbles and blasted a shot from 17 yards out that found the inside of the left post for the goal.

The Seminoles had two great scoring chances in the first half that could have drawn the game even heading into halftime. On the second Seminole corner, Tiana Brockway sent a pass to the far post where Jessica Price collected the ball. She turned toward the end line and sent a cross back across the box where Kassey Kallman sent a header high of the crossbar in the eighth minute of play.

Freshman Kristin Grubka then sent a shot just wide of the right post from inside eight yards in the 41st minute. The play was set up thanks to a great passing combination from Tori Huster and Dagny Brynjarsdottir.

Florida State looked to counter right out of the gates as Tiffany McCarty sailed a shot high 12 seconds into the start of the second half. With the Seminoles in possession of the ball to open the second half, Price sent a pass to McCarty running down the right side of the pitch. McCarty's first touch turned the Tar Heel defender around allowing the junior forward to dribble once up the field before firing a shot high over the crossbar.

McCarty then forced the Tar Heels into a save situation as she sent a low-lining shot from about 18 yards out in the 53rd minute. But Anna Sieloff was there for the first of her three saves on the evening to keep the Noles off the scoreboard.

North Carolina finished the game out shooting Florida State 15-14. The Tar Heels also held the edge in corner kicks at 5-3. Janice Cayman led the Seminoles with four shots, while McCarty finished the game with three.

Adelaide Gay and Sieloff split time in goal for the Tar Heels as it marked their second combined shutout of the season. Wys played all 90 minutes and made three saves.

FSU Blanks NC State.

Ines Jaurena and Tiffany McCarty each score to pace the Seminoles to victory on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Tenth-ranked Florida State (9-4-0, 2-3-0 ACC) returned to its winning ways Sunday afternoon blanking NC State (8-4-2, 0-3-2 ACC) 2-0 for the Seminoles first ACC shutout of the season.

"Overall, I thought we had pretty good control of the game," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We kept the ball, attacked a lot of different ways and created an awful lot of chances, but again we have to put the ball in the net to make the game come a little easier for us."

The Seminoles scored in each half thanks to goals by Ines Jaurena and Tiffany McCarty, while Taylor Vancil kept the Wolfpack off the scoreboard making two saves in 90 minutes to record her second shutout of the season and first of her career in the ACC.

"It's huge," said Vancil on coming up with a shutout victory on Sunday. "We really haven't played our style of soccer and I felt like we got back to that today. Hopefully we can move forward and take the momentum into next weekend's match against Virginia."

"It's one of those things that we know that we have a lot of depth," added Krikorian. "We were able to try some different things today and the players that stepped in did a very good job."

FSU continued its dominance over NC State as the Seminoles pushed their win streak to 11 straight and are now unbeaten in their last 13 games against the Wolfpack (11-0-2). The Seminoles have outscored the Wolfpack 33-9 during the span with four shutouts. NC State's last win in the series dates back to 1998.

Florida State created several great scoring opportunities in the first half but could not find the back of the net until Jaurena and Hikaru Murakami combined with less than two minutes left in the half to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

Murakami began the scoring play as she fired a shot off the right post from about 8 yards out. The Japanese native collected the rebound and sent a pass back up the field to Jaurena, who one-timed a shot that ricocheted off a Wolfpack player and into the back of the net for her second goal of the season.

"Hikaru did a good job of creating the scoring chance," said Jaurena. "She was going to shoot but I yelled to her. She put the ball back and I shot the ball on frame."

The Seminoles first great scoring chance in the first half came off the first corner kick of the afternoon in the 15th minute. Tiana Brockway sent the kick toward the far post where Ella Stephan out jumped the competition and put a header on goal. Wolfpack keeper Kim Kern was there for the save, one of eight on the day, to keep the game scoreless.

McCarty had two scoring opportunities in the 31st minute but was denied as her first shot was saved by Kern. The rebound off the save came to Dagny Brynjarsdottir whose deflected pass came to the feet of McCarty. The junior forward one-timed her second shot wide of the right post.

Less than five minutes later following another Seminole corner kick, the ball was played out to the left side of the pitch to Toni Pressley. Pressley made a run toward the end line before firing a cross that just missed the head of Janice Cayman, who came streaking into the box.

Florida State went into the locker room with a 12-3 shots advantage, while maintaining the edge in corner kicks at 4-1.

The second half was reminiscent of the first half with the Seminoles controlling possession and creating chances, but unable to find the back of the net until the 80th minute.

Brynjarsdottir slotted a nice ball in between two defenders to McCarty running down the middle of the field. With Kern coming out to break up the run, McCarty made a nice move to her left to beat the keeper and finished the play with an empty net goal for her team leading 11th goal of the season.

With 39 career goals, McCarty is one goal shy of tying the Florida State all-time record held by Cindy Schofield with 40 (1999-2002).

Brynjarsdottir had two more scoring chances thwarted by Kern in the second half as headers in the 53rd minute and 79th minute were both saved.

Tori Huster fired a shot wide of the left post in the 59th minute following a long run by Janice Cayman down the left side of the pitch. The senior from Belgium dribbled toward the end line before firing a cross to Huster at the top of the box.

NC State's only real scoring threat in the second half came in the 78th minute when Paige Dugal fired a shot just high of the crossbar from about 30 yards out.

FSU finished the game out shooting NC State 20-5.

"The best thing about today is the win," said Jaurena. "Gaining confidence and earning three points is exactly what we needed today."

The Cavaliers net the game-winner in the 93rd minute as the two teams combine for the most goals scored in the series since 1998.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Tenth-ranked Florida State (9-5-0, 2-4-0 ACC) erased a one-goal deficit three times Saturday night to force overtime against No. 8 Virginia (9-3-2, 3-2-1 ACC) but it wasn't enough as UVa's Caroline Miller scored the golden goal in the 93rd minute to give the Cavaliers a 4-3 victory.

"Of course, I am disappointed," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We fought back from being down a goal three times and our kids showed a lot of fight. I thought we created enough to have a couple more goals particularly in the first half; I thought we had some real good looks but did not finish them.

"Virginia is a good team. They play good soccer. It was a good game, good fight, but unfortunately for us we did not do everything we needed to do to win the game."

With the Seminoles trailing 3-2 in the waning minutes of regulation, Tori Huster brought Florida State even for the third time Saturday night as she blasted a shot from 20 yards out that found the back of the net to force overtime. Ines Jaurena began the scoring play as she kicked the ball back toward to the middle of the field to Dagny Brynjarsdottir, who collected the ball off her chest and one-timed a pass to Huster. Huster collected the ball, faked a shot attempt and took a quick dribble to her right before blasting a shot into the net to tie the game at three with 36 seconds left.

"We had pushed numbers forward and Tori picked up the ball, had a nice touch out of her feet, picked her head up and hit a nice strike passed Jones and into the corner of the net," said Krikorian. "It was good strike and a great time for a goal."

Less than three minutes into the first overtime, the Cavaliers recorded the game-winner off the head of Caroline Miller as she put away a fine cross into the box from Lauren Alwine. The play began with Amanda Fancher who sent a long cross down the right sideline to Alwine.

The seven combined goals by both schools were the most scored in the series since 1998 when Virginia defeated Florida State 4-3 in overtime in Tallahassee. It also marked the fourth time in the last six games that the Seminoles and Cavaliers have played an overtime contest.

With the win, Virginia ran its unbeaten streak over Florida State to 20 games as the Cavaliers improved to 16-0-4 all-time against the Seminoles.

Tiffany McCarty, Brynjarsdottir and Huster all scored for the Seminoles on Saturday night in front a packed crowd of 1,590 inside Klockner Stadium. McCarty's goal was the 40th of her career bringing her into a tie with Cindy Schofield as the all-time leader in goals at Florida State. Brynjarsdottir tied a career-high against the Cavaliers with three points on a goal and an assist.

Virginia wasted very little time to crack the scoreboard Saturday night as Julia Roberts recorded her fourth goal of the season in the third minute of play to give the Cavaliers the early advantage. The goal came off a direct free kick from just outside the box following a Seminole foul. Roberts took the kick and bent a cross that deflected off the outstretched hands of keeper Taylor Vancil and inside the left post for the first goal of the game.

The Seminoles looked to even the score in the 15th minute when McCarty got a one-on-one breakaway with Virginia keeper Chantel Jones after receiving a great pass from Tiana Brockway. McCarty ran in on the pass and took a long dribble down the middle of the field before nailing a shot off the right post.

In the 20th minute, the Cavaliers' Maggie Kistner made a great team save as she used a header to deflect a shot by McCarty out-of-bounds to keep UVa's one-goal lead intact. Toni Pressley sent a long pass to McCarty, who got in behind the Cavalier defense. With Jones coming out to break up the play, McCarty made a nice move to get the ball by the UVa keeper, but Jones tripped up McCarty to slow down her momentum. The Laurel Md., native regained her balance to maintain possession of the ball before firing a shot on goal. But Kistner was there for the save to keep the Seminoles off the scoreboard.

With less than three minutes in the first half the Seminoles found the equalizer on McCarty's team leading 12th goal of the season. Hikaru Murakami slotted a nice pass into McCarty who took one touch toward the middle before slotting a low liner passed the diving Jones and into the right corner of the net to tie the game at one.

Virginia looked to recapture the lead right before the half thanks to a pair corner kicks. The first proved to be the most dangerous as Roberts' shot from the far post was saved by Vancil. The ball went out of bounds and on the ensuing corner the ball was headed out of play by Virginia as time expired.

Florida State went into the locker room with a 4-3 shots advantage, while the Cavaliers held the edge in corners at 3-2. Both teams recorded a save.

The Cavaliers came out of the locker room and maintained possession in their offensive third for the first 13 minutes of the second half. Virginia retook the lead when a cross from Alwine went off a Seminole defender and into the net to give UVa a 2-1 advantage.

"We were a little sloppy with the ball in the second half," added Krikorian. "You give balls away in bad spots and sometimes that can hurt you."

Brynjarsdottir tied the game for the second time Saturday night putting away a deflected cross from Jamia Fields in the 62nd minute. Fields sent a cross from just inside the right corner of the 18-yard box that deflected off a UVa defender. The ball went right to the feet of Brynjarsdottir, who settled the ball and one-timed a shot into the lower left corner to tie the game at two. The goal was Brynjarsdottir's second of the season.

After the Florida State goal, Virginia continued to control the offensive tempo recording the game's next six shots with Vancil recording two saves and one clanking off the crossbar. But the sixth shot gave the Cavaliers the lead for the third time Saturday night as Caroline Miller slipped a shot past a diving Vancil for her team leading 11th goal of the season.

Virginia outshot Florida State 11-3 in the second half and 2-0 in the overtime period to finish the game with a 16-7 shots advantage.

Vancil suffered her first loss in goal for the Seminoles as she played the entire game and made a season-high six saves.

Terps Clip Noles.

Freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottir finished with a game-high four shots against Maryland.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Eleventh-ranked Florida State (9-6-0, 2-5-0 ACC) fell to No. 10 Maryland (9-2-4, 3-2-2 ACC) 3-0 Thursday evening at the Seminole Soccer Complex marking the first regular season win for the Terrapins in Tallahassee since 1999. FSU entered the contest unbeaten at home in its last six games against the Terps.

All three goals by Maryland came in the first half including two in the first eight minutes and 15 seconds of the game. The Seminoles outshot the Terrapins 21-3 Thursday night but the Terps made each one of their shots count as all three of them found the back of the net.

"We weren't good enough in transition, attacking or defending," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "That is a credit to them and their quality of finishing."

The Seminoles tallied 11 shots in the first half and then 10 more in the second half while holding the Terps to none in the final 45 minutes of play.

"I thought we generated enough to create a goal or two at least, but you have to finish your chances," added Krikorian. "It's obviously been a problem."

Freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottir recorded a game-high four shots including two on goal, while Ines Jaurena and Toni Pressley tallied three shots each.

Maryland keeper Yewande Balogun finished the game with 10 saves recording five in each half. Domenica Hodak registered a team save in the first half heading away what would have been a sure goal by Tori Huster following a Seminole corner kick.

Danielle Hubka struck first for Maryland in the sixth minute as she put away a pass from Ashley Grove from about 20 yards out. Hubka took the pass from Grove on the left side of the pitch and dribbled to her right before drilling a shot into the upper right corner for her fourth goal of the season.

Just over three minutes later, the Terrapin lead grew to 2-0 thanks to a goal off the foot of Becky Kaplan. Kaplan ran in on a long ball from Skyy Anderson, beat a Seminole defender to the end line and then made a nice move toward the inside of the 18-yard box before slipping a shot between the left post and a diving Kelsey Wys for the goal.

The scoring came to a close in the 24th minute as Grove found the back of the net on a header from close range for her fourth goal of the season. The goal was set up following a nice passing combination from Kaplan and Hubka. With the ball nearing the end line on the right side of the pitch, Kaplan sent a cross to the far post where Grove one-timed the pass with a header to give Maryland its winning margin at 3-0.

The Seminoles looked as if they would get on the scoreboard in the 32nd minute when Brynjarsdottir was dragged down in the box leading to a penalty kick. But the shot from Pressley was saved by Balogun to keep the Noles off the scoreboard.

Florida State controlled the offensive possession in the second half but could not find the back of the net as the Seminoles were shutout for the third time in league play this year.

Brynjarsdottir had the team's best scoring opportunity in the second half as she took a pass from Tiana Brockway and made a nice run down the middle of the field. From just inside the 18-yard box, Brynjarsdottir fired a shot over the head of Balogun, but the Maryland keeper got enough of her hand on the ball as it tipped off the crossbar and out of bounds.

Freshman Natalie Punal had a great look in the 89th minute as she headed a pass from fellow freshman Hikaru Murakami just high for the final shot of the game.

Big Win For FSU.

Freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottir scores the lone goal for the Seminoles in a 1-0 win over BC.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Eleventh-ranked Florida State (10-6-0, 3-5-0 ACC) got a goal from freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottir in the 84th minute to defeat No. 4 Boston College (9-3-2, 4-3-0 ACC) 1-0 Sunday afternoon inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Brynjarsdottir put away a header from close range off a double passing combination from Tiffany McCarty and Katie Riley to record her first career game-winning goal.

With the score tied at zero and overtime looming, McCarty played a nice cross from the left sideline to Riley, who one-timed the pass with a header into the box. Brynjarsdottir was right there to one-time the pass with a header of her own inside the left post and just beyond the outstretched arms of Eagles keeper Jillian Mastroianni for the goal to give the Seminoles all the scoring they would need on Sunday.

"I was in the right place at the right moment," said Brynjarsdottir. "When I saw the ball coming to her (Katie), I noticed that she was not going to head it to the goal, so I continued my run and was fortunate to finish the play."

"It was a big goal by a young player, who has a lot of promise," said head coach Mark Krikorian.

The Seminoles recorded their seventh shutout of the season and second in league play as the defense shut down the BC offense limiting the Eagles to just three shots on goal the entire game.

"It was a heck of a hard fought win," added Krikorian. "Today we had enough chances in the first half to have a goal or two; we had a couple (big) chances in the second half. Our kids battled hard and we are fortunate to come out with three points today. I am proud of our group, I am proud of them every time out."

With just two games remaining in the regular season for Florida State, Sunday's victory was a must win for the Garnet & Gold, who currently sit in ninth place in the ACC standings with nine points. The Seminoles trail both Miami and Virginia Tech by one point in the standings after the Hurricanes and Hokies kept pace on Sunday picking up key victories of their own. FSU can make up ground in the standings over the next two weeks as the Seminoles will face Miami on Sunday, October 23 and will then travel to Virginia Tech to close out the regular season on Thursday, October 27.

"I still think this team can win a national championship," said Krikorian. "We just need to eliminate the mistakes and today for the most part we eliminated those mistakes. We didn't give up a whole lot of scoring chances. We have to continue to put the ball in the net and see how far we can go."

Florida State continued its domination over Boston College with the win on Sunday running its all-time record to 8-0-2 including a perfect 5-0 record against the Eagles in Tallahassee. Sunday's contest marked the sixth time in 10 meetings that FSU has beaten BC by a score of 1-0.

The Seminoles certainly had their scoring chances early in the match as Ines Jaurena received a beautiful pass from Brynjarsdottir to find herself in a one-on-one situation with Mastroianni in the 11th minute. The junior defender dribbled into the box before trying to sneak a shot inside the right post from about eight yards out, but the BC keeper made a tip save to keep the game scoreless.

Less than seven minutes later, Mastroianni once again came up big on a shot off the foot of freshman Kristin Grubka. Grubka sent a shot from 25 yards out that was bending toward the far post, but Mastroianni got enough of her hand on the ball to deflect the ball off the crossbar.

The Seminoles continued to apply pressure looking for that first goal in the first half as Tori Huster ripped a shot from 20 yards out but it was Mastroianni once again coming up with a diving save near the left post to keep the game tied at zero.

BC's best scoring chance in the first half came off the foot of Alicia Blose, who sailed a shot high over the left corner in the 44th minute following the Eagles third corner kick of the half.

The two teams went into the locker room tied at zero with the Seminoles holding the advantage in shots (7-4) and corners (5-3).

The Eagles turned up the offensive pressure at the start of the second half recording six shots in the first 25 minutes of action, while limiting the Seminoles to just two.

"Boston College came out in the second half, credit to them; they came out hard and put us under some pressure," added Krikorian."

The best look for BC came in the 68th minute when Blose redirected a pass from Gibby Wagner from inside 10 yards toward the left post, but Kelsey Wys made a great diving save to keep the Eagles off the scoreboard.

Wys played all 90 minutes in goal for the Seminoles finishing the game with three saves and posting her third shutout of the season.

Jaurena, McCarty and Tiana Brockway led the team with two shots each, while BC's Kristen Mewis led all players on Sunday with four shots.

Second Half Surge Lifts FSU.

Tiffany McCarty tallies a game-high three points as she becomes FSU's all-time goal scoring leader.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a must win game for Florida State, the fifteenth-ranked Seminoles (11-6-0, 4-5-0 ACC) scored three unanswered goals in the final 18 minutes of the second half to complete their first come-from-behind victory of the season in defeating Miami (9-6-1, 3-5-1 ACC) 4-2 Sunday afternoon on Senior Day inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The win kept Florida State alive for a berth in the upcoming ACC Tournament which will begin Sunday, October 30 at the site of the top four seeds. The Seminoles currently sit in seventh place in the league standings with 12 points and with one final game remaining in the regular season. FSU will travel to face Virginia Tech in Blacksburg on Thursday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m.

"I don't think we made it very easy for ourselves," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We came out pretty good and sometimes when you score early, you take your foot off the gas, but I don't think we were as sharp as we have been this season.

"But as soon as we went down, we gained a couple of gears and I thought our quality (of play) was much, much better. It is nice to see that we can go down a goal and comeback and respond positively."

With the Seminoles trailing by one with less than 18 minutes remaining in the match, Florida State turned up the offensive intensity and scored the final three goals of the game to extend its win streak to 12 in a row over Miami. Tori Huster, Ines Jaurena and Tiffany McCarty all found the back of the net during that run, while Kelsey Wys recorded three second half saves to preserve the win.

"We needed that (win)," said Jaurena. "Coming back and being able to score three goals after being down a goal is huge. It was a real good lift for this team; nobody let down which was nice to see."

"We didn't lose hope when it was 2-1," said Huster. "It really didn't feel like we were down at all. We had everything that we needed. We just needed to score a goal. It wasn't coming but that gave us the extra push to get us going."

McCarty led all players on Sunday with three points as she tallied a goal and an assist in the win. The redshirt junior forward scored the final goal of the match in the 88th minute to solidify the victory for the Seminoles. The score also made McCarty the all-time goal scoring leader in school history as she moved ahead of Cindy Schofield for the top spot with 41 career goals.

"Obviously it's an honor (on becoming the all-time goal scoring leader in school history), but it is a testament to my teammates and the program and how much we have grown over these last 10 to 15 years," added McCarty.

The match was a tail of two halves as Florida State went into the locker room with a 1-0 lead thanks to a goal by senior Janice Cayman in the second minute of play.

Cayman put away a cross from McCarty from close range for her fourth goal of the season to give the Seminoles the early one-goal advantage. Kassey Kallman began the scoring play as she made a long run down the left side of the pitch before sending a pass to McCarty inside the box. With three Hurricane players around her, McCarty made a nice move toward the end line to free up space allowing her to send a pass across the box to a wide open Cayman. The Belgian one-timed the pass and found the back of the net on the Seminoles first shot of the match.

That would be the only goal of the first half as both teams combined for nine shots and four corner kicks.

The second half was a different story as Florida State outshot the Hurricanes 17-6, while maintaining the advantage in corner kicks at 3-1.

But in a span of three minutes, the Seminoles saw their lead evaporate as Miami scored twice to take its first lead of the match at 2-1. The first goal came on a penalty kick conversion by Kate Howarth in the 60th minute. The Seminoles were called for a foul in the box leading to a penalty kick opportunity for Howarth, who found the lower right corner of the net for her team leading 10th goal of the season.

The Hurricanes would go on top in the 63rd minute when Ashley Flinn found the back of the net for her third goal of the season. The freshman forward made a nice run down the left side of the pitch before sending a shot that deflected off a sliding Wys and into the net for the goal and a 2-1 Miami lead.

But the final 18 minutes belonged to the Seminoles as Huster began the scoring outburst with a goal in the 73rd minute to even the match at two goals apiece. Following a Miami foul deep in the Seminoles' offensive third, Tiana Brockway sent a touch pass into Huster, who finished the play with a cross inside the left post from 15 yards out for her fifth goal of the season.

"It was a good play," added Huster. "There was good non-verbal communication between Tiana and me, so it was good."

Less than three minutes later, Jaurena would put the Seminoles ahead for good as scored from short distance to give FSU a 3-2 advantage. The junior defender received a pass from Jessica Price and fired a shot on goal but it was saved by Miami's Vikki Alonzo. With the ball loose inside the box, Jaurena continue to fight for possession, leaped over a Miami player and a put away the ball for her third goal of the season and second game-winner.

"That goal was the most beautiful goal that I have scored in my career," said Jaurena. "I could not have hoped to have scored a better goal. JP gave me the ball and I was going to shoot with my left foot which I probably should have scored on, but thanks to Imaizumi I learned that the second ball is really important. So I followed, hopped over the girl and was able to push the ball with my right foot."

"Imaizumi has been working with all the attacking players on following up after their initial shot and that is what seemed to happen today with Ines," added Krikorian. "The ball kind of bounced around, we had a chance, it bounced out and finally that persistency paid off."

McCarty sealed the victory in the 88th minute as she one-time a shot inside the right post from about 15 yards out after receiving a nice pass from freshman Jamia Fields.

The Hurricanes attempted to mount a comeback in the waning minutes as Tara Schwitter got behind the Seminole defense and sent a shot on goal, but Wys was there for one of her four saves on the afternoon.

Cayman finished the match with a team-high five shots, while McCarty and senior Ella Stephan registered four shots each.

Noles Roll Over Hokies.

Tori Huster and Tiffany McCarty each register three points in the win.

BLACKSBURG, VA - No. 12 Florida State (12-6-0, 5-5-0 ACC) put together a dominating performance Thursday night with a 2-0 victory over No. 25 Virginia Tech (12-6-1, 4-5-1 ACC) to end the regular season on a three-game winning streak. The victory assured the Seminoles a spot in the ACC Tournament where they clinched the sixth seed and will travel to face third-seeded North Carolina on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

FSU scored a goal in each half as the Seminoles controlled the game from start to finish holding the Hokies to just three shots all night long including no shots on goal.

"Overall, I thought it was a solid performance," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "The attacking was pretty good and for the most part the defending was pretty good. On occasion we gave up a little more space than we probably should have but collectively the group did a pretty good job tonight.

"Virginia Tech is a good team and to shut them out and to knock in two on their home field is a good result for us."

Tiffany McCarty and Tori Huster each tallied three points on a goal and an assist, while Jessica Price contributed with an assist in the second half as the Garnet & Gold remained unbeaten all-time against Virginia Tech in 11 games (10-0-1).

"I thought Tiff McCarty was the sharpest she has been all season long," added Krikorian. "She was very good in collecting balls, holding balls while allowing others to join into the attack. She was quick on the turn and she made the people around her better tonight.

"Tori's movement off the ball is always good; she is always difficult to deal with as she made some good runs into the box tonight."

With three points, McCarty moved within one point of tying Cindy Schofield for the all-time scoring mark at Florida State with 102 points. In three years at FSU, McCarty has tallied 101 career points on 42 goals and 17 assists.

The Seminole defense kept the Hokies in check all evening long en route to posting their eighth shutout of the season, third in ACC play and second in the last three games. FSU keeper Kelsey Wys played all 90 minutes to record her fourth shutout of the season.

FSU dominated the first half of play Thursday night in Blacksburg controlling possession and out shooting the Hokies 7-1.

The first real scoring chance for FSU came in the 15th minute when Toni Pressley slipped a pass to McCarty. The redshirt junior forward dribbled along the 18-yard box before making a quick change of direction to her left to free up enough space to fire a left footed shot on goal. Virginia Tech's Dayle Colpitts was there for the diving save to keep the game knotted at zero.

Virginia Tech's only shot of the first half came in the 22nd minute as Kelly Conheeney sent a shot high over the crossbar from 25 yards out following a direct free kick.

Minutes later Jamia Fields got in on the action as she made a long run down the right pitch off a Seminole throw-in. The freshman midfielder sent a shot wide right from 20 yards out.

The Seminoles struck first in the 35th minute as Huster found McCarty for what would be the eventual game-winner. After receiving a pass from Huster, McCarty made a nice move to her right before firing a low liner inside the right post from about 16 yards out to give FSU a 1-0 lead.

Katie Riley had the last great scoring threat of the half for the Seminoles as her header off a corner kick from Tiana Brockway sailed wide of the right post.

The Seminoles increased their lead to 2-0 in the 56th minute on a goal by Huster off a great passing combination from McCarty and Price. Price began the scoring play as she flicked a no look pass toward the Seminole goal to McCarty running down the right side of the pitch. The Laurel, Md., native beat a Hokie defender before sending a cross into the box where Huster timed her run perfectly and one-timed a shot into the back of the net for the goal.

Virginia Tech looked to counter in the 64th minute but the shot by Conheeney was blocked by Ella Stephan just outside the 18-yard box denying the only real scoring threat for the Hokies in the second half.

Both teams took just two shots in the second half, while the Hokies registered the lone corner kick.

Noles Pull Off Upset.

The Seminoles hand the Tar Heels their first-ever loss in the ACC Tournament on Sunday.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - A golden goal by Jessica Price in double overtime gave No. 12 Florida State (13-6-0) a 1-0 victory over No. 8 North Carolina (11-5-1) in the ACC Tournament Quarterfinals at Fetzer Field Sunday afternoon.

The Seminoles dominated the Tar Heels in extra time and were rewarded for their efforts in the 105th minute as Price found the back of the net putting away a loose ball in the box following a Florida State corner. The game-winner was Price's second of the season and 11th of her career, while it marked her second career golden goal.

The play was set up when Tiffany McCarty won the corner kick. Tiana Brockway took the corner and sent the ball to the far post where Ella Stephan put a header on goal. UNC keeper Anna Sieloff was there for the initial save as she tipped the ball off the crossbar, but Price made a great read and one-timed the rebound over the goal line for the game-winner.

"This was a big win for our program," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Everyone knows that success in women's soccer goes through UNC, so to come in here, be on the road and to win in overtime is a credit to our players' hard work and resilient behavior.

"Ella got up and won it and the goalie tipped it," said Price on the goal sequence. "The ball went off the post and I poked it in. It was kind of a big scrum (in the box), but it went in the goal and that is all that matters. We will certainly take it."

"We were able to earn a corner," added Stephan. "Tiana crossed the ball in and I went up for the header. I don't know exactly what happened after that; all I know is that Jess worked really hard to get in the box and tap it in. We were able to put that ball away and come out with the victory."

The win advanced the sixth-seeded Seminoles into the semifinals of the ACC Tournament where they will square-off against second-seeded Virginia.

"It was a hard fought game, a hard fought win and we are thrilled to beat Carolina and to move on in the ACC Tournament," added Krikorian.

With the win, Florida State also created a bit of history on Sunday handing the Tar Heels their first ever loss in the ACC Tournament. UNC was 58-0-4 entering the quarterfinal match on Sunday. It also marked the first time the Tar Heels have lost three straight games in their 33-year history. The win was the first for the Seminoles in Chapel Hill (1-7-2), while it marked the first win over UNC in 11 tries in the ACC Tournament.

"It feels really good, even after the game we played in the regular season (2-0 loss to UNC), we had that on our minds coming into this game today," said Price. "We wanted to come in and send a message."

"Always exciting (to be moving on in the ACC Tournament," added Stephan. "This is my senior year; the senior last go around, so go big or go home."

Despite being outshot 18-14 by UNC on Sunday, the Seminole backline of Toni Pressley, Kassey Kallman, Ines Jaurena and Brockway did their part limiting the Tar Heels to just three shots on goal with two of those coming in the final two minutes of regulation.

The shutout was FSU's ninth of the season and third in the last four games. FSU keeper Kelsey Wys played the entire contest and made two saves to record her fifth shutout of the season.

"Before the game, we talked about how the team can't win if they can't score goals," said Brockway. "That was one of our main focuses today."

Dagny Brynjarsdottir, Tori Huster and McCarty led the Seminoles with three shots each, while Janice Cayman recorded two. Crystal Dunn paced the Tar Heels with five shots on the afternoon.

UNC's Alyssa Rich had the game's first scoring chance as she one-timed a shot just wide of the right post on a feed from Dunn in the sixth minute of play. Dunn got behind a Seminole defender and dribbled into the 18-yard box before slipping a pass to a wide open Rich, who missed wide.

Brockway came through with a huge save on the post following the second Tar Heel corner of the game in the 13th minute. Dunn collected the loose ball at the top of the 18-yard box after the Seminoles tried to clear the ball out of the zone on a few headers. Dunn dribbled to the top of the box before drilling a shot on goal, but Brockway was there on the left post to boot the ball out of the box and keep the game tied at zero.

McCarty registered FSU's first shot of the game in the 15th minute firing from about 18 yards out but UNC keeper Adelaide Gay was there for the save.

A great passing combination in the 20th minute led to FSU's first scoring threat of the game. Cayman sent a ball from the left side of the pitch into the box where McCarty headed the ball forward to Brynjarsdottir, who one-timed a header on goal but Gay was there for the save.

Kallman fired a header wide of the right post in the 28th minute on a long pass from Pressley off a free kick from about midfield. Forty-seven seconds later the Seminoles were back at it as Brynjarsdottir got in behind the Tar Heel defense and past Gay on a pass from Cayman. The native from Iceland collected the ball and sent a shot on goal from the left side of the pitch that was saved by a Tar Heel defender.

The Tar Heels went into the locker room with a 7-4 advantage in shots, while both teams attempted two corners.

McCarty looked to break the scoreless tie in the 52nd minute when the redshirt junior made a run down the middle of the field on a long pass from Brockway. McCarty went weaving in and out of the UNC backline before freeing up enough space to put a shot on goal. Tar Heel keeper Anna Sieloff got just enough of her hand on the ball to redirect the shot wide of the right post.

Following a Tar Heel foul deep in the Seminoles offensive third, Brockway attempted a quick restart but Dunn was all over it as she blocked the kick and made a long run down a wide open field. Dunn and Emmalie Pfankuch ran side by side with the Seminoles trying to gain ground. Wys faked like she was coming out to get the ball and then settled back before sliding in to break up Dunn's run. Instead of putting a shot on goal, Dunn decided to pass it out to her right to Pfankuch but the touch was too hard and went out of bounds passed the end line.

The Seminoles had a great look on goal in the 82nd minute as Huster fired a shot from about 16 yards that was tipped over the crossbar by Sieloff.

UNC put a barrage of shots on goal in the final three minutes of regulation as Wys came through with two huge saves, while Stephan registered a block on a Dunn shot.

With less than a minute remaining, the Tar Heels were called for a foul in the Seminoles' offensive third. Brockway took the free kick and sent the ball into the box. Cayman found the loose ball and registered a shot on goal but the shot was saved by a Tar Heel defender to force overtime.

FSU Advances To ACC Finals.

The Seminoles defeat the Cavaliers on Friday night for the first time in 21 tries.

CARY, NC - Five days after handing North Carolina its first-ever loss in the ACC Tournament, sixth-seeded Florida State (14-6-0) continued to make history Friday night defeating second-seeded Virginia (14-4-2), 2-1, in the second semifinal of the league championship at WakeMed Park. The win marked the Seminoles' first victory over the Cavaliers in school history, snapping UVa's 20-game unbeaten streak in the series.

"It was a good win," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Every win in the ACC is a good win. I think we should get 10 teams in the NCAA Tournament. I don't look at any win as being monumental, because I think they are all very good wins. They are all very good teams. Everyone could be playing in the final here and could be playing in the final in December. This is a good win against a very good team."

Florida State erased a one-goal halftime deficit scoring two second half goals in a span of 13 minutes and 22 seconds to advance to the conference championship for the sixth time in school history. It was the first time in six games this year that the Seminoles won a game after trailing at the half.

"The second half we came out and used the wind to our advantage," added Krikorian. "We put on some pressure, scored a couple and were able to hang on in the end for the result. It wasn't artistic, it wasn't beautiful, but at this stage we're looking to advance and our kids did what we had to do to win."

Janice Cayman gave the Seminoles the lead for good in the 68th minute when she drilled a shot into the upper right corner of the net from 30 yards out for her fifth goal of the season. Toni Pressley assisted on the play as she fed a beautiful through ball down the middle of the field to Cayman. The game-winner by the Belgian native was her first of the season.

"I surprised myself a little bit, too," said Cayman on scoring the game-winner Friday night. "I heard people shouting, `Shoot it, shoot it,' so I took my shot and shot it. At first I was afraid the goalie was going to get, but then it turned away from the goalie so it was positive for me."

Tiffany McCarty got the Garnet & Gold on the board in the 55th minute as she ran in on a pass from Dagny Brynjarsdottir. The junior forward timed her run perfectly and out ran a pair of Cavalier defenders to force a one-on-one situation with UVa keeper Chantel Jones. From just inside the 18-yard box, McCarty slipped a low liner into the right side of the net to tie the match at one-goal apiece.

The goal for McCarty was her team leading 15th of the season, while making her the all-time leading scorer in school history. With 103 career points, McCarty moved past Cindy Schofield on the all-time points list at FSU.

After Florida State went ahead for the first time Friday evening, the Seminole defense kept the Cavaliers at bay giving up just four shots over the final 22 minutes with zero shots on goal. Kelsey Wys played the entire 90 minutes in goal for Florida State as she made four saves to move to 12-5 on the year.

Virginia finished the match out shooting Florida State 19-8, while holding the advantage in corners at 10-4.

The win for Florida State was its fifth straight, while the Seminoles improved to 7-6 against ranked foes in 2011 including 5-4 on the road.

Both teams registered a shot in the first three minutes of action as Florida State's Kristin Grubka notched the game's first shot shooting high over the crossbar, while Virginia's Caroline Miller also went high for the Cavalier's first shot.

The first scoring threat by either team came from the Seminoles in the fourth minute as McCarty timed her run perfectly down the middle of the field off a long ball from Pressley. McCarty made a nice move toward the inside of a Cavalier defender before firing a shot on goal, but UVa's Chantel Jones was there for the save.

Over the next 30 minutes of play, the Cavaliers dominated possession especially in their offensive third out shooting the Seminoles 7-0. The `Hoos were rewarded for their efforts as Lauren Alwine found the back of the net on a header off a corner in the 29th minute. Molly Menchel assisted on the play bending the corner into the box where Alwine maintained perfect position inside the six-yard box to flick the ball into the back of the net to give Virginia a 1-0 lead. The goal was the first allowed by the Seminoles in over 232 minutes of action dating back to the second half of a 4-2 victory over Miami on October 23.

McCarty had a break away opportunity for the Seminoles late in the first half on another long ball from Pressley. But McCarty's first touch went a little too far allowing Jones to slide in and gain possession of the ball.

Virginia went into the locker room with a 1-0 advantage maintaining the lead in both shots (11-2) and corners (5-2).

"We played two tough games and I think we showed a lot of character through those games," said Wys. "We talked about writing history. I wanted to do it for all those girls who aren't going to be here next year, for all the seniors."

ACC CHAMPS!!!

The Seminoles defeat the Demon Deacons 3-1 in penalty kicks to claim their first ACC title.

CARY, NC - The series of firsts continued for Florida State (14-6-1) Sunday afternoon in Cary as the Seminoles captured their first ACC title after downing fifth-seeded Wake Forest (14-3-4) 3-1 in penalty kicks.

The ACC title comes after being the first team in league history to defeat North Carolina in the tournament and then beating Virginia for the first time in school history in the league semifinals on Friday. As the sixth-seed, the Seminoles became the lowest seeded team to win the league title since last year when Wake Forest won the championship as the fifth-seed. The championship for the Seminoles is their first in six title appearances.

"We're obviously thrilled to come up here and walk away with a championship" said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Wake Forest is obviously a very good team. We battled hard. We were resilient. We kept finding a way to neutralize."

Seminole goalkeeper Kelsey Wys was named the Tournament MVP after stopping three Wake Forest penalty kicks. Both teams scored on their first pk attempt as Hikaru Murakami found the back of the net after Wake keeper Aubrey Bledsoe guessed correctly but the ball went off her finger tips and inside the right post. Rachel Nuzzolese scored for the Deacs on their first attempt.

The goal by Nuzzolese would be the only pk Wake Forest would connect on as Wys stopped the next three attempts including the fourth pk by India Winford to give the Seminoles the title. After Murakami's successful attempt, the Seminoles connected on two of the next three as CC Cobb gave the Seminoles a 2-1 lead and Marta Bakowska-Mathews scored the eventual game-winner for a 3-1 lead.

Five Seminoles were named to the All-Tournament Team as Wys was joined by Toni Pressley, Janice Cayman, Tiffany McCarty and Jessica Price.

Both goals came in the second half with Wake Forest breaking on top first in the 64th minute to take a 1-0 lead. Off a Demon Deacon corner, Jackie McSally took a shot from inside the left corner of the 18-yard box but Wys was there for the save deflecting the ball off the post. The loose ball went right to the feet of Katie Stengel, who one-timed the ball into the back of the net for her 14th goal of the season. It marked the third time Stengel scored against the Seminoles this year.

The Seminoles would find the equalizer in the 85th minute as Price found McCarty for the goal to tie the game at one. On a ball that was deflected from the left side of the pitch to the top of the 18-yard box, Price flicked a pass inside the box which McCarty ran in on and went one-on-one with Bledsoe before sending a low liner into the left corner of the net for the goal.

The goal by McCarty was her second of the tournament and team leading 16th of the season. The assist for Price was her seventh to lead all Seminoles.

Four total shots were registered in the first half as each team recorded two. Both of Florida State's shots came in the final eight minutes of the half with Jamia Fields and Tori Huster each recording a shot. The Seminoles possessed the ball for a majority of the half but could not crack the Demon Deacon back line to force a shot on goal.

The Seminoles didn't register their first shot of the second half until the 69th minute when Pressley lofted a high shot from about 35 yards out that drifted just over the crossbar and out of bounds. The goal by McCarty with less than five minutes to play in the second half was the first shot on goal by the Seminoles.

Wake Forest finished the game out shooting Florida State 11-8 and 4-3 in the overtime periods. Pressley was the only Seminole to record more than one shot finishing the game with a team-high two. Wys collected four saves in 110 minutes of action.

With the win on Sunday, Florida State receives the ACC's automatic bid to play in the NCAA Tournament. The Seminoles will learn who they will face in the first round when the field of 64 for the 2011 NCAA Women's Soccer Championship is announced on Monday, November 7 at 4:30 p.m. on the NCAA.com.

FLORIDA STATE 2, SAMFORD 0
11/11/2011, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Blanks Samford.

The Seminoles advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and will face the winner of Oregon State/Portland on Friday, November 18.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State (15-6-1) registered two second half goals in defeating Samford (14-6-2) 2-0 Friday evening in the first round of the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament. The Seminoles recorded a season-high 28 shots en route to running their current unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1).

"I tell you that was one heck of a first round match," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought our kids played really well. They came out strong in the first half, had pretty good possession and pretty good attacking play, but credit to Samford for their organization, defending and making it very difficult for us to break them down.

FSU dominated possession from the start keeping the offensive pressure on the Bulldogs all night long. Despite out shooting Samford 12-1 in the first half, the Seminoles could not crack goalkeeper Alyssa Whitehead as the senior goalkeeper made six saves and benefited from a team save in the box in the 31st minute off a shot from Tori Huster to keep the game scoreless after the first 45 minutes.

"In the second half, I thought we came out again pretty hard and had good control of the ball," added Krikorian. "We had good opportunities and eventually we were fortunate enough to score."

The Seminoles finally found the back of the net in the 58th minute as Janice Cayman timed her run beautifully to score the game's first goal on a double passing combination from Tiffany McCarty and Jessica Price. McCarty dribbled down to the end line and fired a pass across the goal box where Price out jumped the 6-3 frame of Whitehead to redirect the ball to the far post. Cayman came sprinting in from the left side and put away the ball from close range to give FSU a 1-0 lead.

The goal by Cayman was her sixth of the season and first in five NCAA Tournament games. The assist for Price was her team leading eighth of the season, while the assist for McCarty marked the eighth time in the last 10 games that the junior forward as registered at least one point in a game.

"It was a relief getting the first one," said Cayman. "Tiff made a really good run. She ran by her defenders and crossed the ball in. Jessica is an amazing athlete and she jumped higher than the goalie who is 6'3" and she made it easy for me to touch it in the goal."

Tiana Brockway sealed the deal in the 65th minute on an outstanding goal to give the Seminoles a 2-0 advantage. The junior defended weaved her way in and out of traffic down the middle of the field before freeing up enough space and firing a world class shot into the upper left corner of the net from about 17 yards out. The goal was Brockway's second of the season.

"Patience was the key and I'm not going to lie, I got frustrated at times especially when there's so much space and you have the ball for so long," added Brockway. "But it was very important to stay focused and do the little things like keep the ball."

The Seminole defensive unit of Brockway, Ines Jaurena, Kassey Kallman and Toni Pressley did not allow Samford a shot in the second half and held the Bulldogs without a shot on frame the entire match.

Kelsey Wys played all 90 minutes in goal to pick-up her sixth shutout of the season. Whitehead had a season-high 10 saves against Florida State and set the Samford single-season saves record with 120 following Friday night's game.

McCarty finished with a game-high seven shots as five went on goal. A total of 12 Seminoles recorded at least one shot Friday night, while seven registered a shot on goal.

In front of a packed crowd of 1,035 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex, Florida State advanced out of the first round of the NCAA Tournament for the seventh straight year while running their unbeaten streak in the first round to 12 games (11-0-1).

FSU Defeats Portland.

Senior Janice Cayman notches a goal and an assist as the Seminoles move on to the third round.

MEMPHIS, TN - Florida State ran out to an early 2-0 lead with two goals in the first 16 minutes of the game as the Seminoles (16-6-1) defeated Portland (9-10-2) 3-1 Friday evening in the second round of the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.

"We took control of the game with good attacking play and solid defending," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian. "We hoped to come out strong and put some pressure on Portland (early) trying to create some play up front with good attacking chances.

"Obviously, it's always a big help to be able to score early, but when we went and played at Portland, we scored early and they came back to win the game. One goal is not safe against a team of that quality. I thought our group was good and consistent on the attack. Overall, I thought it was a nice match to watch and a good game from top to bottom."

Janice Cayman continued her hot hand in the NCAA Tournament as she led all players with three points on a goal and an assist in leading the Seminoles into the third round for the seventh year in a row and 10th time in 12 all-time NCAA appearances.

Cayman, a native of Brasschaat, Belgium, scored the first goal of the game in the ninth minute, her second of the tournament, and followed with the eventual game-winning assist on a goal by Dagny Brynjarsdottir in the 16th minute. Freshman Kristin Grubka accounted for the third Seminole goal giving FSU a 3-0 lead in the second half.

With the win, FSU extended its unbeaten streak to a season best eight games (7-0-1), while avenging an early season loss to the Pilots in Portland by a 2-1 score.

The Garnet & Gold out shot Portland 14-8, while both teams recorded one corner each. Grubka led all players on Friday with four shots and Cayman had three shots with two going on goal.

Kelsey Wys made four saves in goal as she improved to 14-5-1 on the year.

Florida State grabbed the early lead when Cayman one-timed a cross from Tiffany McCarty down on the end line to give FSU a 1-0 lead. Tori Huster began the scoring play as she looped a pass to McCarty. The Laurel, Md., native beat a Pilot defender to the end line on the right side of the pitch before firing a cross to the far side of the box where Cayman found the back of the net for her seventh goal of the season. McCarty and Huster were credited with assists on the play.

"We came out strong and were ready to fight," said Cayman. "We had multiple good attacks already on the right flank and I think Tori passed the ball to Tiff, who made a really good run. She played the ball in like we asked her to, so I just had to put it in the back of the net."

The Seminoles added to their lead in the 16th minute when Brynjarsdottir scored on a header off a pass from Cayman. The senior midfielder beat her defender with a nice move toward the inside of the 18-yard box before flipping a pass to Brynjarsdottir, who used all of 5-10.5 frame to flick a shot off her head and inside the left post just beyond the outstretched hands of DeYoung. The goal was the freshman midfielder's fourth goal of the season.

"My first ball failed, but then I got it back and saw Dagny make a movement backwards," said Cayman. "I just placed it on her head and she did the rest to finish it for the goal."

Huster registered the first shot of the game firing wide of the upper left corner in the seventh minute of play. Forty-five seconds later Brynjarsdottir recorded her first shot of the game sending a ball on goal from just inside the 18-yard box, but Portland's Hailee DeYoung was there for the save.

The Pilots recorded their first shot of the game in the 15th minute when Rebekah Kurle sent a shot high and over the head of Seminole keeper Kelsey Wys.

A near defensive miscue in the 35th minute almost gave Portland its first goal of the game, but Wys came sliding out at the top of the box to grab the ball and thwart a near break away opportunity for the Pilots' Kaila Cameli.

Three minutes later, Cameli sent a bending shot on goal from about 20 yards out but Wys was there for the diving save to keep the Pilots off the scoreboard.

The Seminoles went into the half with a two-goal advantage and a 7-4 lead in shots.

Florida State padded its lead in the 59th minute as Grubka blasted a shot from the right side of the 18-yard box to give the Seminoles a three-goal advantage. Off a Florida State corner, Tiana Brockway sent a pass into the box where Katie Riley settled the ball at the feet of Grubka. The freshman midfielder fired a low liner inside the right post for her third goal of the season. Brockway and Riley combined for the assist on the goal.

"That was a really good goal because it makes it more, not to say comfortable, but gives us more confidence," added Cayman. "It certainly helped us from a defensive point of view."

In the 85th minute, Portland got on the board on a nice individual effort by Taylor Brooke. Brooke made a nice move toward the inside of the box and took a few dribbles across the field before bending a left footed shot inside the left post for the goal.

"It's always comforting the more goals you get," added Wys. "It was unfortunate to give up that last goal, but I think my team made it pretty easy for me tonight. I thank them for all their hard work."

Elite 8 Bound.

The Seminoles advance to the Elite 8 for the seventh year in a row.

MEMPHIS, TN - Florida State (17-6-1) is bound for the Elite Eight following a 2-0 victory over Louisville (14-7-3) Sunday afternoon in the third round of the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.

"It was a pretty hard fought Round of 16 game," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought our kids competed and battled well for 90 minutes. Louisville certainly was imposing themselves into the game which made it difficult for us."

Kassey Kallman and Tiffany McCarty each scored a goal in the win and the Seminoles posted their 11th shutout of the season and second of the NCAA Tournament as FSU advanced to the Elite Eight for the seventh straight year and eighth time overall.

"We are happy to advance and to play back in Tallahassee next week," added Krikorian. "The expectations are pretty high for our group. We have a collection of players that are always looking for excellence. I am quite pleased and proud of their efforts. It's not easy to go on the road and defeat two quality opponents. I think our consistency is fantastic."

The Seminole defense was up for the challenge holding the Cardinals to just two shots on goal with the first finally coming with just over 10 minutes left in regulation. FSU goalkeeper Kelsey Wys played all 90 minute in net as she made two saves and posted her seventh shutout of the season.

"We knew that they were going to come out and play direct," added Kallman. "We talked about how the back line was going to defend that and I think everyone especially the backline did of reading the pressure, backing off and keeping them in front of us."

Florida State finished the game outshooting Louisville 12-11, including a 7-1 advantage in the first half. McCarty recorded a team-high four shots, while Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Tori Huster each posted two shots each.

Jessica Price registered the first shot of the game in the ninth minute as she got in behind a Cardinal defender on a long pass from Toni Pressley. Price collected the ball down near the end line and made a nice move back toward the top of the box before firing a shot on goal. Cardinal goalkeeper Chloe Kiefer was there for the save to keep the game deadlocked at zero.

Huster had a great scoring chance in the 20th minute as her shot from about 20 yards out ricocheted off the crossbar and out of play. Huster received a great pass from McCarty, weaved herself through traffic and blasted the ball off the crossbar.

The Seminoles broke through with the first goal of the game came in the 24th minute as Kallman flicked a header into the back of the net off a throw-in from Price. The sophomore defender did a nice job to out jump the competition and redirect the ball inside the left post to give Florida State 1-0 lead. The goal was Kallman's third of the season, while the assist for Price was her team leading ninth of the season.

"We know that Jess has a really dangerous throw and we are going to use that to our advantage," said Kallman. "Jess threw the ball in perfectly, it found my head and I was able to flick it into the net."

Louisville posted the first shot of the second half when Christine Exeter hit a shot from the right corner of the 18-yard box that glanced off the crossbar. Jaurena gathered the loose ball and kicked it out of harm's way.

The Cardinals' Zakiya McIntosh had a good look on goal in the 69th minute following a throw-in, but her shot went wide of the right post.

FSU's lead grew to 2-0 as the Seminoles took advantage of a mishit on a goal kick from Kiefer in the 77th minute. Senior Janice Cayman collected the ball that went about 15 yards, beat a couple Cardinal defenders before slipping a pass to McCarty. McCarty dribbled around the keeper and put away the ball into an empty net for her team leading 17th goal of the season. The assist for Cayman was her second in as many matches and her sixth point of the NCAA Tournament.

"It was a goal kick, and I fought hard to get the goal back," said Cayman. "I saw Tiff making a run, so I just had to play it to her. She had a quality finish.

"I mean, it's my last year here. I think all the seniors are stepping up and are all playing their top level. I mean again, I'm lucky to get some goals and assists."

The goal for McCarty tied a season-high which she set in 2009, while it ties for the fourth most goals scored in a single-season in school history.

Florida State returns home to face Virginia on Friday, November 25 in an NCAA Tournament Quarterfinal match-up. Game time is set for 2:00 p.m.

"I think I've made it very clear that I have a great deal of respect for the Virginia team, the program and its staff," said Krikorian. "I'm a big fan of their style of play. I look forward to it. We'll be ready; I know they will be ready. Hopefully, we will have beautiful weather and beautiful conditions, and I think it will be a wonderful game of soccer."

College Cup Bound.

The Seminole return to the College Cup for the fifth time in school history and their first since 2007.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State is headed back to the College Cup! The Seminoles (18-6-1) became the first team to earn a spot in the national semifinals with a 3-0 victory over Virginia (17-5-2) Friday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

FSU will now make the 300-mile trek north to Kennesaw, Ga., site of the 2011 Women's College Cup, where they will face the winner of Stanford/Oklahoma State on Friday, December 2. The Seminoles return to the College Cup for the fifth time in school history and for the first time since 2007 when the Garnet & Gold played Southern California for the national championship.

After defeating Virginia earlier this month for the first time in school history in the ACC Tournament semifinals, Florida State added to its list of firsts in the series by beating the Cavaliers for the first time in Tallahassee.

FSU snapped UVa's eight-game (0-6-2) unbeaten streak inside the Seminole Soccer Complex, while it marked the first goals scored by Florida State at home against Virginia since 2002. In the three games against UVa this year, FSU outscored Virginia 8-5. The Cavaliers gave up just 11 goals in the other 21 games this year.

With the win, the Seminoles moved to 23-1-0 at home all-time in NCAA Tournament action, while improving their current unbeaten streak to a season-best 10 games (9-0-1).

Florida State registered goals from three different players on Friday as Ines Jaurena, Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Tiffany McCarty all found the back of the net against the Cavaliers.

The Seminoles recovered from a shaky first 10 minutes to record their 12th shutout of the season and tie a school record with their third shutout of the postseason. FSU keeper Kelsey Wys made six saves in 90 minutes of action including two in the first six minutes to keep the Cavaliers off the scoreboard.

UVa's Danielle Colaprico had the game's first scoring chance as she got in behind the Seminole defense following a great pass inside the 18-yard box in the second minute of play. Colaprico tried to sneak a low lining shot past Wys, but the Seminole goalkeeper made a nice diving kick save to keep game scoreless. The Cavaliers were back at it again in the sixth minute as Morgan Brian put a shot on goal but once again Wys was there for the save.

Tori Huster recorded Florida State's first shot of the game in the 14th minute as she blasted a shot off the crossbar from about 35 yards out. Less than two minutes later, Chantel Jones made a nice kick save on a shot from Janice Cayman to keep the game scoreless.

Huster was back at it again in the 19th minute forcing Jones into a diving save on the left post. The senior midfielder one-timed a pass from McCarty across the box but Jones got just enough of her finger tips on the shot to keep the ball out of the net and forcing it out of bounds.

Jaurena broke the scoreless tie in the first half converting on a penalty kick opportunity in the 35th minute after McCarty was fouled from behind down near the end line.

The Seminoles added to their lead in the second half on Brynjarsdottir's fifth goal of the season and second of the NCAA Tournament. Off a Florida State corner, the ball found its way to the body of freshman Kristin Grubka, who settled it nicely right to the feet of Brynjarsdottir. The Icelandic native one-timed the shot inside the left post to give FSU a 2-0 lead.

McCarty sealed the victory in the 76th minute with her team leading 18th goal of the season to give the Seminoles a commanding 3-0 lead. The junior forward scored on a long break away dribbling a good distance before making a nice move to her right and drilling the ball inside the upper right corner of the net.

Virginia finished the game out shooting Florida State 15-13. Huster and McCarty led the Noles with three shots each, while Colaprico led UVa with four shots.

Season Comes To A Close.

The Seminoles finish the season at 18-7-1 and as champions of the ACC.

KENNESAW, GA - Florida State's run to the College Cup came to a close Friday evening in Kennesaw as top-ranked Stanford defeated the Seminoles 3-0 in front of a crowd of over 9,000 in the first semifinal of the 2011 NCAA Tournament at the KSU Soccer Complex.

The Cardinal (24-0-1) scored two goals in a span of two and a half minutes in the first half to grab a lead they would never relinquish, while adding a third goal in the 64th minute to run their unbeaten streak to a nation's best 25 games.

Three different Stanford players found the back of the net Friday night including the game-winner by Chioma Ubogagu in the 22nd minute. Kristy Zurmuhlen and Alina Garciamendez also scored as the Cardinal advances to the national championship game for the third year in a row and will face the winner on Duke/Wake Forest on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.

The Seminoles were shut out for the first time since a 3-0 setback at the hands of Maryland back on October 13 in Tallahassee. The loss snapped FSU's season-best 10-game unbeaten streak as the Seminoles finished the year at 18-7-1.

"What a competitive game," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Credit to Stanford, they're a very good team and they certainly took advantages of some situations in the game that didn't work well for us, but I thought our kids competed favorably and we played a very good team today. Congratulations to Stanford and good luck to them as they move forward."

Florida State finished the game outshooting Stanford 12-9 including an 8-3 advantage in the second half. Senior Janice Cayman led all Seminoles with three shots including two on goal - both coming in the second half. Tori Huster, Tiana Brockway and Toni Pressley each registered two shots a piece.

Brockway recorded the first Seminole shot of the game in the 11th minute bending a ball over the crossbar off a free kick. Tiffany McCarty was fouled from behind on the play leading to the free kick opportunity.

In the 16th minute, Jamia Fields and Dagny Brynjarsdottir combined to force Stanford into a save situation. Fields slotted a pass into the box to Brynjarsdottir. The Icelandic native dribbled a couple yards with a Cardinal defender on her side before firing a shot on goal that Stanford keeper Emily Oliver deflected and then recovered in plenty of time to corral the loose ball and prevent any further damage.

"You know that you are only going to get so many chances against a good team," added Krikorian. "You needed to capitalize on those opportunities. I think we had a couple of good looks and either we struck the ball at the goalkeeper or missed over the goal. That's the way this game goes. If you don't put the ball in the net you can't push forward.

"The counter attack off of our corner kick, maybe if we were a little better, a little more precise on our finishing it would be different, but give credit to Stanford."

Stanford broke the scoreless tie in the 22nd minute on a goal by Ubogagu to give the Cardinal a 1-0 lead. The goal came off a Florida State corner as Mariah Nogueira started the counter attack for the Cardinal winning possession off a header. Ubogagu collected the ball at midfield and dribbled down the field on a two-on-two attack. The freshman forward slipped a pass to Teresa Noyola, who one-timed a pass right back to Ubogagu, who made a nice move before finding the back of the net to give Stanford the one-goal lead.

Less than three minutes later, the Cardinal would increase their lead to 2-0 as Kristy Zurmuhlen scored off a double assist from Ubogagu and Lindsay Taylor. Taylor sent a long ball down the left side of the pitch to Ubogagu, who sent a pass back inside the box where Zurmuhlen came sliding in to redirect the ball inside the left post for the goal.

"You could say that it was a little bit against the run of play because we had possession of the ball for the first 20 minutes or so," said Huster. "It was frustrating because it was the end of our season, but I am very proud of the way our girls fought out there and give credit to Stanford."

McCarty had a great look right before the half firing just high from about 17 yards out as the two teams went into the locker room with the Cardinal holding a 6-4 advantage in shots.

The Seminoles came out of the break putting the offensive pressure on the Cardinal recording three shots in the first 12 minutes. In a shot similar to the one she scored on against Virginia in the ACC Tournament, Cayman blasted a bending ball toward the upper right corner but Oliver was there for the save.

Florida State had a chance to cut into the lead in the 56th minute but back-to-back diving saves by Oliver kept the Seminoles off the scoreboard. Off another free kick from just outside the box, Brockway sent another beautiful shot on goal as Oliver tipped it over the crossbar. On the ensuing corner, Brockway sent a long ball to the far post where Tori Huster headed a shot on goal, but once again Oliver was there to make an outstanding diving save to keep the ball out of the net.

"It looked pretty good from my angle, but I wish it was a little lower on the first one (direct kick)," said Brockway. "It kind of rose at the end, but it was something that I've been working on. It always looks better from where you're standing."

The Cardinal wrapped up the scoring in the second half as Garciamendez headed a pass from Madeleine Thompson just under the crossbar for her first goal of the season.

The Seminoles pushed the offensive pressure in the final 20 minutes but the Stanford defense and Oliver were too much as the Cardinal keeper finished the game with six saves.

Although Friday night's result was not the outcome Florida State had hoped for, it was still a season to be proud of. The Seminoles earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for just the second time in school history after capturing their first ACC Championship. FSU advanced to its fifth College Cup this year, defeated the University of Virginia for the first time ever and performed that feat twice and then became the first team to hand the University of North Carolina a loss in the ACC Tournament.
