FSU Opens 2013 With 1-0 Victory Over Oregon State.

The Seminoles set a school record Friday night with their 19-straight home victory.

By: Christa Salerno

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The third-ranked Florida State women's soccer team (1-0-0) won its season opener against Oregon State (0-1-0), 1-0, on Friday at the Seminole Soccer Complex. With the win, FSU has won six-straight season openers, moving to 16-2-1 all-time.

In addition, the victory Friday night marks the 19th-straight home win for the Seminoles dating back to the 2011 season, setting a new school record. The previous mark of 18 consecutive home victories was established back during the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

"It's a great start for us," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian. "I think everyone was looking at the quality of kids that graduated and wondering what the solution is, but we've been saying all preseason long that we like our group. We have the potential to be very good and again the quality of the soccer - the passing and moving and combination play was very good for our first game. Maybe the best total performance we've had since I've been here."

After a 51-minute weather delay halted the match after just 15 minutes of play, the winning strike came from the foot of sophomore Nora Kervroedan as she connected on FSU's 12th shot of the game in the 43rd minute off a deflected shot from freshman Nickolette Driesse. Kervroedan's one-time kick bent inside the right post from 25 yards, good for her third career score and second-consecutive on opening night.

"It felt great," said Kervroedan on recording her second career game-winner. "It gives me a lot of confidence for the rest of the season.

"Nicole tried to take a shot on goal and it came back to me. I looked up and saw the goalkeeper was not covering the back post, so I just went for it."

The Seminoles possessed the ball for a majority of the second half, racking up a total of 16 shots for the game.

In the 62nd minute, sophomore Carson Pickett created a chance stealing the ball from a Beaver defender inside the box, but the Oregon State keeper Sammy Prudhomme was there for the save.

Oregon State looked to have a scoring opportunity in the 78th minute; however the play was swiftly defended and cleared by defender Kristin Grubka.

The Beavers were held in check by the Seminole defense all night long limited to just two shots and only one shot on goal. The lone shot on goal for Oregon State came in the 88th minute as Jenna Richardson tried from long range but Kelsey Wys was there for the save.

"We have a very competitive group," added Krikorian. "I thought we fought well and I was very pleased with our possession play. I thought we moved well without the ball; kept the ball and had a lot of good attacking opportunities tonight. A lot of people came out and contributed. It was also good solid defending all over the place."

"We had an excellent game tonight both attacking and defending," Kassey Kallman said. "The entire team played really well and that makes it easier on our backline. But I thought we did really well as a back four and with Kelsey (Wys). We were really organized, so that definitely helped us keep the shutout. Everyone did a super job defending tonight."

In the first half, Florida State applied the offensive pressure early with Pickett striking first with a shot that ricocheted off the cross bar from 35 yards out in the third minute.

FSU found another chance in the eighth minute as sophomore Isabella Schmid ripped a shot from the right side that slammed off the post before bouncing out of bounds.

The Seminoles had two additional scoring looks in the first half, as Megan Campbell knocked a 30-yard blast off the crossbar before Driesse registered a shot from 35-yards that was deflected by the keeper before pulling the ball in for the save.

Noles Tame Tigers, 4-1.

Redshirt freshman Berglind Thorvaldsdottir tallies two goals and an assist in the win.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - No. 3 Florida State (2-0-0) registered two goals in each half as the Seminoles cruised to a 4-1 victory over Auburn (0-1-1) on Sunday afternoon inside Seminole Soccer Complex to put the finishing touches on a perfect season opening weekend for the Garnet and Gold.

FSU's Berglind Thorvaldsdottir (Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland) led all scorers on Sunday with a five-point afternoon as she tallied two goals and an assist for her first career points as a Seminole. Jamia Fields (Alta Loma, Calif.) also added a goal and an assist in the win as Florida State improved to 9-2-0 against Auburn all-time. The four goals on Sunday also marked the most against the Tigers in the series since 1999 when FSU was victorious 4-0 in Auburn.

"The attacking play was pretty good and it's nice to get rewarded with a few balls in the back of the net," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Our finishing around the penalty box was better than Friday night. It was a good solid performance. It was a little disappointing to give up a goal at the end but that's going to happen on occasion and hopefully, we'll get better for it.

"Berglind is a big talent and she's good around the goal," said Krikorian. "When the opportunity comes, she takes advantage of it. I think there is more to come from her. She has the quality to score some goals and I look forward to watching it."

"It felt pretty good," said Thorvaldsdottir on her five-point performance on Sunday. "I'm pretty happy with how the team played. It was a good win for us. We're doing well. It's a great start to the season."

The win also extended Florida State's home-winning streak to a school record 20 straight victories - a mark that dates back to the 2011 season.

"Every team in the country wants to have a home (field) advantage and it's seems we've been able to establish that here," said Krikorian. "We have a beautiful field and a great crowd and it helps. We've been a pretty good team at home."

Thorvaldsdottir gave the Seminoles the early led in the 16th minute on a great finish off a cross from Marta Bakowska-Mathews (Herne Bay, Kent, England). The Icelandic native snuck in behind the Auburn defense to one-time the cross with a diving header inside the left post from four yards out. Nickolette Driesse (Wayne, N.J.) began the scoring play finding Bakowska-Mathews out on the right flank, who took a few dribbles before finding Thorvaldsdottir for the goal. The assist for Driesse was her second in as many matches, while it was the first of the season for Bakowska-Mathews.

Florida State extended its lead to 2-0 right before the half when Kristin Grubka (Melbourne, Fla.) was tackled from behind by an Auburn defender inside the box leading to a penalty kick opportunity. Nora Kervroedan (Maurepas, France) took the shot and converted the pk for her second goal of the season.

For the second straight game, Florida State held the opposition without a shot in the first half as the Seminoles went into the locker room on Sunday with an 11-0 shot advantage over the Tigers.

"Again, I felt pretty good about our play on the defensive side," added Krikorian. "I'm not sure how many shots they had, but we sure limited their chances at the goal, which was our intent coming in. I thought overall we were solid with our defending and our attacking play."

The Seminoles wasted very little time adding to their lead in the second half when Thorvaldsdottir connected on her second goal of the afternoon in the 53rd minute to give Florida State a commanding 3-0 lead. Freshman Yulie Lopez (West Palm Beach, Fla.) sent a through ball to Fields who beat a Tiger defender on the right side before sending a beautiful cross into the box to Thorvaldsdottir who redirected the pass inside the left post for her first career multi-goal game.

It wasn't until the 60th minute that Auburn finally registered its first shot of the game when Kim Spence sent a long distance shot wide of the net.

Forty-seven seconds later the Seminoles had a 4-0 lead thanks to the scoring duo of Fields and Thorvaldsdottir once again. Thorvaldsdottir evaded an Auburn player with a quick change of direction leading to a long run down the left side of the pitch. The redshirt freshman forward then sent a long cross inside the 18-yard box where Fields climbed the ladder sending a header on goal. The shot deflected off the out stretched hands of Auburn keeper Alicen Wright and into the net for Fields' first goal of the season.

"Honestly, I don't remember the finish," said Fields. "But it was a great ball from Berglind and I was able to get my head on it for the goal."

Auburn would avoid the shutout in the 86th minute when Haley Robinson found the back of the net for the Tigers' first goal of the season. The scoring play came off a corner started by Bianca Sierra. The ball was played out to Casie Ramsier who redirected a header on goal from 18 yards out but a save by Marlo Sweatman on the far post kept the ball out of the net. The rebound went out to Robinson, who redirected the ball into the net for the goal.

The Seminoles outshot the Tigers 19-3 on the afternoon, while Florida State also held the advantage in corner kicks at 6-2.

Thorvaldsdottir and Bakowska-Mathews each tallied a game-high three shots, while Grubka, Fields and Kervroedan all registered two shots a piece.

No. 3 FSU Blanks No. 8 Florida In Gainesville.

The Seminoles register their largest margin of victory over the Gators in the series following their 3-0 shutout Friday night.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Even a power outage could not derail the Seminole offense Friday night in Gainesville as No. 3 Florida State (3-0-0) registered three first half goals en route to a 3-0 victory over No. 8 Florida (2-1-0) Friday evening inside James G. Pressly Stadium.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored two goals in a span of two minutes and nine seconds in the first half for her first career multi-goal game, while Michaela Hahn tallied her first career multi-point game with a goal and an assist as the Seminoles defeated the Gators for the third year in a row.

The win for Florida State marked its second straight shutout victory over Florida and its third shutout in the last five meetings. It also marked FSU's first three-game winning streak in the series, while the three-goal margin for the Seminoles was their largest in 21 all-time meetings against the Gators.

"Every time we play the University of Florida, it's a hard fought game between two good teams," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "We capitalized on some opportunities in the first half and we were able to separate the game a little bit. In the second half we gave up a little bit of territory trying to protect the game, but Florida is a good team and they're going to win a lot of games.

"I'm proud our kids. I thought we came out, fighting and battling hard and we were opportunistic and took our chances as we needed to and we're walking out of here feeling pretty good."

Florida State scored its first goal of the first half in the 27th minute on a great give-and-go play by Nickolette Driesse and Hahn following a build-up from the back by Kassey Kallman. Driesse took the pass from Hahn and quickly found Brynjarsdottir who one-timed a shot into the back of the net from just inside the 18-yard box for her first goal of the season and first of the game.

The assist for Driesse was her third in as many games to open her collegiate career, while it marked Hahn's first career assist.

"The back line was kind of high and Nikki got the ball and she played a first touch ball in the air and I ran behind the backline," said Brynjarsdottir. "The goalkeeper came out of the goal and I took it (the ball) with the outside of my right foot and hit it just over her head."

Brynjarsdottir gave the Seminoles a 2-0 advantage just two minutes and nine seconds later for her first career multi-goal game. The goal came off a throw-in as Megan Campbell heaved the ball inside the six-yard box, while the Icelandic native out jumped the competition to head the ball in for the goal.

"Megan's throw-ins are amazing," added Brynjarsdottir. "We talked about this before the game that we were going to score from it. It was a perfect ball from her and I finished it."

The Icelandic native became the fourth Seminole to score two goals against Florida in the history of the series joining Tiffany McCarty (2011), Holly Peltzer (2005) and Sel Kuralay (2005).

Florida tried to cut the deficit in half in the 41st minute when Savannah Jordan got behind the Seminole defense leaving a one-on-one opportunity with keeper Kelsey Wys. Kallman made a great recovery on the play to pin Jordan down on the end line. The freshman forward was forced into a tough shot that Wys made an outstanding stop on to force a corner. On the ensuing corner, Anna McClung thwarted the Gator scoring chance by playing the ball back out to midfield.

Florida State would add to its lead right before the half when Hahn blasted a left footed boot inside the upper right corner from 23 yards out for her first goal of the season and second of her career. The Gators tried to clear the ball out of the zone, but Hahn intercepted the pass and took a couple dribbles before nailing an outstanding shot from long range with 49 seconds left in the first half.

"It was a knockout (ball), and there was no one on me, so I just decided to hit it and it went in the back of the net," said Hahn.

The Seminoles went into the locker room with a three-goal lead, their first such advantage in 21 all-time meetings.

"The first one (goal) was created pretty nicely," added Krikorian on the first goal by the Seminoles. "Nikki (Driesse) did quite well using a little bit of craft to find her (Brynjarsdottir) and it was a quality finish by Dagny. On the second one, Dagny had another quality finish. In my mind, the goal of the night was Michaela's (Hahn). She struck that ball as well as she probably could have; I'm not sure if there is anyone out there that could have saved that ball. We're quite happy to come in here and play against a good team and leave here with a good result."

Neither team found the back of the net in the second half as the two teams combined for just six shots. The first for Florida State did not come until the 67th minute when Carson Pickett attempted a long range shot from just outside the corner of the 18-yard box. The shot led to a Seminole corner as Taylor Burke tipped the ball over the crossbar for the save.

The final 18:12 was played in what felt like a moonlight setting as half the lights at Pressly field went out. After a quick delay to assess the situation, play resumed under the dim lighting.

In the 85th minute, McClung got behind the Gator defense on a long run down the right side of the pitch forcing Burke into a save situation. The freshman forward blasted a shot on frame that the Gator keeper deflected over the top of the crossbar.

With under two minutes left, the lights were back on in full force, but it was too late as the Seminoles closed the door on their second shutout through the first three games in 2013.

Wys played all 90 minutes to pick-up her second shutout on the year. The senior goalkeeper finished with four saves.

"It's a great atmosphere coming out here; there were tons of fans and drums and everything," said Wys. "We knew coming in that it was going to be loud, but we were going to have to step in here and I think the rivalry speaks for itself. It was definitely a fun game and I had a lot of fun out there tonight."

Crowley's Golden Goal Lifts No. 3 FSU Over No. 17 UCF.

The Seminoles run their home winning streak to 21 straight following Sunday's thrilling overtime victory over the Knights.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Kirsten Crowley's golden goal in the 96th minute lifted No. 3 Florida State (4-0-0) to a hard fought 1-0 victory over No. 17 UCF (2-2-0) on a hot and steamy Sunday afternoon inside the Seminole Soccer Complex. The win kept the Seminoles undefeated on the year while pushing their school record home winning streak to 21 straight games.

After both teams played scoreless soccer through the first 90 minutes, Florida State continued its offensive pressure into the first overtime winning back-to-back corner kicks in the 95th minute.

The second would result in the game-winner as Carson Pickett lifted the kick inside the box where Berglind Thorvaldsdottir put a shot on frame. UCF keeper Lianne Maldonado was there for the save but could not hold on to the ball as Crowley was there to put away the loose ball for the game-winner and her first collegiate goal.

"It was all about being in the right place at the right time," said Crowley. "After the ball went in, I said to myself `did this just happen; it's over, no more overtime, we can rest now.' The whole time everyone was saying that it only takes one, it only takes one moment to win this game."

Florida State has now won three in a row over UCF and has not lost at home to the Knights since 2004.

"I thought UCF gave us all we could handle this afternoon," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "They battled from start to finish and brought a great fight, a great intensity to the game. They challenged our kids. Obviously, I'm quite pleased in the end as we were able to score a goal and come out with a win.

"We felt quite confident as the second half wore on that we were eventually going to get some chances on their goal which we did and fortunately Crowley was there at the end to knock one in for us."

Florida State was not sharp in the early going as UCF controlled the pace of play for a good part of the first half. At one point the Knights were out shooting the Seminoles 4-1 in the first half, but FSU closed with two late shots including a long blast off the foot of Michaela Hahn in the 44th minute that forced Maldonado into a diving save.

"In the first half, we were not very sharp," said Krikorian. "We came out sluggish and lethargic. UCF definitely came out with more energy than we did. In the second half, we started to put the ball on the ground, connected a lot more passes and did a nice job of moving and creating.

When play resumed in the second half, Florida State looked like a new team creating more chances and maintaining possession of the ball. Kassey Kallman had two good looks early in the second half in a span of six minutes. The first header off a free kick from Megan Campbell was blocked by a UCF defender while the second sailed just wide of the right post.

Kristin Grubka also had a great look in the 52nd minute but her header off a corner went high and out of play.

UCF countered with a scoring opportunity in the 69th minute when Tatiana Coleman created some space on the right side of the pitch to put a shot on goal from about 16 yards, but FSU keeper Kelsey Wys was there for the save on the near post.

Florida State out shot UCF 9-3 over the final 50:02 including a 2-0 edge in overtime. Pickett, Hahn and Kallman paced the Seminoles with two shots each on Sunday.

"UCF played really hard today," said Kallman. "It was a tough game and we are coming off a tough game from Friday. Today, we had to see what we were made of and when everyone is a little tired and its hot out, I thought we did a good job. The first half wasn't our best but at halftime we talked about picking it up, pushing through it and working for each other."

With the win, the Seminoles wrapped up a perfect weekend against their intra-state rivals with a pair of shutouts outscoring No. 8 Florida and No. 17 UCF by a combined 4-0 margin.

"We knew when we scheduled Florida on Friday night in Gainesville and then coming home to play UCF on Sunday that we would have one tough weekend in front of us and that is what we found to be the case this weekend," added Krikorian.

"Those are two shutouts against two very good teams. We were on balance once again with Kelsey in goal and the backline being strong. From front to back, I thought we had good organization, good competitive spirit and good defending."

The Seminole defensive unit of Campbell, Kallman, Grubka and Crowley were once again up for the call in holding the Knights to just two shots on goal the entire match. For the weekend, FSU posted two shutouts while allowing just six shots on goal.

Kelsey Wys played the entire match on Sunday to pick-up the win and register her third shutout of the season. In over 365 minutes of action this year, Florida State has allowed just one goal through the first four games.

"As a team we did a very good job defensively," said Kallman. "We didn't give them too many chances and when we did Kelsey was there. We were very organized today."

Noles Escape With 1-1 Tie Against Cowgirls.

Jamia Fields scores the equalizer with just one minute and nine seconds left in regulation.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A late second half goal by Jamia Fields kept No. 2 Florida State (4-0-1) unbeaten on the year as the Seminoles escaped with a 1-1 tie against Oklahoma State (3-0-2) Friday evening in front of a crowd of 1,278 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

In what looked like an end to FSU's school record home win streak, Fields saved the night scoring the equalizer with a minute and nine seconds left in regulation to tie the game at one and force overtime.

"I just knew that Dagny - or someone - would get on the end of it," said Fields. "And if I could just be there by the keeper to get the knockdown, or get lucky like I did, I knew I would get a chance. I'm glad I got that goal."

Kelsey Wys started the scoring play as the Seminoles brought all 11 players forward in an effort to score the game tying goal. The senior keeper lofted a beautiful ball inside the 18-yard box where Dagny Brynjarsdottir headed the ball in front of the net to Fields who headed the ball in for the score. The goal was Fields' second of the season, while it marked the fourth career assist for Wys. The assist for Brynjarsdottir was her first in 2013.

"Well I thought that we were pretty willing to fight and compete," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "The good news is that we showed that we could come back. We showed that were able to find a way to win against UCF and now come back tonight with very little time left in the game to equalize."

The tie closed the book on FSU's school record 21-game home winning streak - a mark dating back to the 2011 season. The Seminoles are now unbeaten at home over the last 22 games (21-0-1) and have not lost inside the Seminole Soccer Complex since October 13, 2011 against Maryland.

After both teams could not find the back of the net through the first 45 minutes of the game, Oklahoma State struck first in the 53rd minute on a long range shot off the foot of Courtney Dike. The freshman forward got in behind the Seminole defense and blasted a shot from just outside the 18-yard box that curled inside the upper right corner for her team-high sixth goal of the season.

Florida State definitely had its share of scoring opportunities on Friday as the Seminoles outshot the Cowgirls 31-7 including 5-2 over the two overtime periods. But OSU was also the recipient of two tremendous team saves that kept the Garnet & Gold off the scoreboard.

"We're all probably a little bit disappointed that our quality in front of the goal wasn't a little bit better," added Krikorian. "It seemed in the first half we had a number of very good looks and maybe were a little bit immature, a little bit na´ve in our finishing in and around the box. But you know these were all great learning opportunities for us. Oklahoma State came in here and was very competitive and it's a good team for us to play against."

The Seminoles fired 14 shots in the first half with Carson Pickett giving FSU its first golden opportunity in the 22nd minute. Nickolette Driesse sent a low cross through the box which Berglind Thorvaldsdottir faked as if she was going to take the shot, but left the ball for Pickett who one-timed the shot high and out of play.

OSU responded in the 24th minute forcing Wys into a diving tip save on a header by Delaney Kiely off a Cowgirl corner.

In the 38th minute, Anna McClung looked as if she was going to record her first collegiate goal as her low lining shot from the right side beat OSU keeper Rosa Medina and was headed inside the left post, but defender Lauren Reyes made a diving kick save to keep the game scoreless.

Right before the half, Kassey Kallman flicked a great pass to Nora Kervroedan, who collected the ball from about 15 yards away from the net, evaded a defender and then blasted a shot just over the crossbar.

The second Oklahoma State team save came in the 85th minute on a header by Kristin Grubka following a Seminole throw-in. Fifty seconds later, another Seminole throw-in would result in a shot on goal, this time coming from Thorvaldsdottir but Medina was there for the save.

Despite outshooting the Cowgirls 5-2 over the two overtime periods, the best scoring opportunity from either team came from Oklahoma State. In the 94th minute, Dike once again got behind the Seminole defense leaving a one-on-one situation with Wys. The Seminole goalkeeper would get the better of the freshman forward making a tremendous diving save to keep the game going.

Brynjarsdottir led all players on Friday night with a game-high five shots, while Michaela Hahn registered four. Allie Stephenson paced the Cowgirls with three shots in 101 minutes.

FSU Shuts Out Oklahoma, 1-0.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scores the lone goal of the match in 76th minute to keep the Seminoles unbeaten on the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 2 Florida State (5-0-1) closed out the non-conference portion of its schedule Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 victory over Oklahoma (2-4-0) in front of a crowd of 1,116 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored the lone goal of the match breaking the scoreless tie in the 76th minute to keep the Seminoles unbeaten on the year while running their home unbeaten streak to 23 games (22-0-1).

Nora Kervroedan began the scoring play has she fed a great ball to Brynjarsdottir, who split the Sooners central defenders and took one touch before blasting a shot into the net from 16 yards out for her team leading third goal of the season and second game-winner in 2013.

"Nora was dribbling the ball and I saw a gap between the center backs," said Brynjarsdottir. "She slipped a really good ball through; I took one touch and finished it."

Florida State finished the match with a 16-4 edge in shots as eight of the Seminoles' shots went on goal.

"On Friday night I thought we created a lot of chances and were dangerous," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "Today, I don't think we were quite as dangerous, quite as often and that we weren't sharp enough.

"Overall, sitting where we are at this stage - six games into the season - it is a pretty good place to be but we know there is more to give and we will get better."

Kelsey Wys picked up her fourth shutout of the season and has given up just two goals in over 565 minutes on the pitch this year. Wys, along with the Seminole defensive unit of Megan Campbell, Kassey Kallman, Kristin Grubka and Kirsten Crowley, limited the Sooners to just one shot on goal as that lone shot came in the sixth minute of the game.

"Our defending has been pretty solid," added Krikorian. "We have been limiting the opportunities of our opponents and Kelsey has been there when we need her. But to be honest, we have to be better as a collective unit than what we showed out here today."

Brynjarsdottir led all players on Sunday afternoon with four shots, while fellow Icelandic native Berglind Thorvaldsdottir attempted three shots with two going on goal.

The Seminoles looked to grab the lead in the 33rd minute when Kallman played a long ball to Anna McClung streaking down the left side of the pitch. The freshman forward collected the ball and made a nice move back toward the middle of the field to evade a Sooner defender. McClung then sent a low lining shot toward the far post but Oklahoma keeper Kassidie Stade made a diving save to keep the game scoreless.

OU had a great look from about 30 yards out off a direct free kick in the 43rd minute but the shot by Devin Barrett sailed just wide of the upper right corner.

Isabella Schmid tried to give the Garnet & Gold the lead right before the half but her bending shot from about 16 yards out was saved by Stade.

Both teams came out a little sluggish to open the second half but it was Oklahoma that applied the early pressure attempting the first two shots out of the locker room.

The Seminoles would get a great scoring chance in the 67th minute when Crowley played a cross into the box from down on the end line that was poked away by Stade. The ball was played out to Thorvaldsdottir, who one-timed a shot on frame but the OU keeper was there for the diving save.

After FSU grabbed the 1-0 lead, Oklahoma could not manage a whole lot offensively with the exception of two late corners but both were well played by the Seminoles as OU came away empty handed without attempting a shot.

With a tie and a win this weekend, Florida State moved to 57-28-5 all-time when facing a team for the first time.

FSU, Wake Play to Scoreless Draw.

The Seminoles outshot the Demon Deacons 10-3 in opening ACC play with key road point.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - In the lone top 10 contest on the opening night of ACC play across the league Thursday night, No. 4 Florida State (5-0-2) played to a scoreless draw against No. 7 Wake Forest (5-0-1) inside Spry Stadium to earn a key point on the road.

It marked the first tie for the Seminole all-time in an ACC opener and the second tie against the Deacs in Winston Salem. It was also the third scoreless draw played between these two schools and the first since an ACC Tournament showdown in Cary, N.C. back in 2006.

"Our young kids are coming of age," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "We came in against a very good team and I thought our kids battled very hard. At times, we made the game look very, very good and other times we weren't as precise as we needed to be. But to come into Wake Forest, have a good deal of play and be dangerous at different times; to come away with a draw is not a bad result."

Florida State finished the match out shooting Wake Forest 10-3 while the Seminole defense limited the Demon Deacons to just one shot over the final 65 minutes of play including holding MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List candidate Katie Stengel without a shot in 110 minutes of action.

Of the 13 total shots attempted on Thursday night, only four went on goal with three of those coming from the Seminoles. Wake Forest's lone shot on goal came in the 16th minute of play as it was easily handled by Kelsey Wys.

Wys played the entire match between the posts to pick up her fifth shutout of the season. The Seminole defense has yielded just two goals in the first seven matches this season lowering their league leading goals against average to 0.27.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir led all players Thursday night with three shots, while seven other Seminoles recorded one.

"The goals are going to come," added Krikorian. "We have all kinds of fire power. With our style of play, we will eventually be able to open teams up and the goals will start coming. We are not going to change our philosophy or the way we do things. We just have to be a little more precise when we get in front of the goal because there are enough chances for a goal to happen."

Neither team was able to create much offensively in the first half as Florida State went into the locker room with a 5-2 advantage in shots and a 2-0 edge in corner kicks.

The Seminoles registered the game's first scoring chance in the fourth minute when Carson Pickett sent a through ball to Brynjarsdottir that split the Demon Deacon defense. The Icelandic native took one touch before firing a shot on goal but Wake keeper Aubrey Bledsoe came in with a diving save to break-up the opportunity.

Wake's lone shot of the game came in the 16th minute when Ally Berry's shot from the right side of the pitch was saved by Wys on the near post.

The second half was a mirror image of the first 45 minutes as both teams combined to take just four shots with the Seminoles recording three.

The best opportunity came off the foot of Berglind Thorvaldsdottir, who made a nice turn-around shot from the top of the 18-yard box following a low-lining pass from Hikaru Murakami. But Bledsoe was there with a diving save to keep the game scoreless.

Wake's only shot in the final 65 minutes of the match came in the 82nd minute when a shot by Riley Ridgik was blocked by the Seminoles.

Florida State attempted the only two shots in overtime with one in each of the two overtime periods. In the 96th minute, Brynjarsdottir send a header wide of the left post on a cross from Megan Campbell.

Yulie Lopez registered the final shot of the game in the 108th minute as her shot in the second overtime when wide of the left post from about 14 yards out.

FLORIDA STATE 2, DUKE 1
09/15/2013, DURHAM, NC

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Defeats Duke 2-1.

The Seminoles register their first ever victory over the Blue Devils in Durham.

DURHAM, NC - Kristin Grubka's header in the 87th minute was the difference Sunday afternoon as No. 4 Florida State (6-0-2, 1-0-1 ACC) finished a tough trip to North Carolina with a 2-1 victory over No. 15 Duke (4-3-1, 1-1-0 ACC) inside Koskinen Stadium.

With the win, Florida State picked up its first win in the ACC this year and in the process its first-ever victory against Duke in Durham in 10 all-time meetings (1-5-4). The Seminoles finished a tough opening week in league play against two top 15 opponents with four big points.

"It is a tough trip," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "We knew coming up and playing at Wake and then at Duke would be very challenging games for us and they proved to be. It's another step in the right direction for this program to come up here and get four big points."

Grubka's goal came off a set piece after Duke was called for a foul just beyond midfield. Megan Campbell stepped up to take the free kick sending a beautiful ball into the 18-yard box. Grubka out jumped the competition to get to the ball lofting a soft header into the top left corner of the net for her first goal of the season.

"Earlier in the second half, Megan had a similar free kick that I flicked straight into the goalkeepers hands," Grubka said. "I was a little upset with that finish, so I was like `I have to do a better job this time.' Luckily I was in the right place at the right time and was able to get a good flick on goal."

"It was a really hard fought game," Krikorian said. "Today we were able to play some pretty nice soccer for long stretches through the course of the match. We showed great composure after conceding the goal to come back and equalizing quickly and then taking advantage of some of the set pieces that we had. Overall, four points on the road at this stage of the ACC season is a good start for us."

After a quiet first 15 minutes of the match, the two teams turned up the offensive intensity combining for 13 shots the rest of the first half with Duke taking a slim 7-6 advantage into the locker room.

The Blue Devils struck first breaking the scoreless tie behind a goal by Kim DeCesare in the 19th minute. Laura Weinberg sent a low cross from down on the end line back toward the top of the 18-yard box where DeCesare one-timed her shot into the lower right corner for her second goal of the season and a 1-0 Duke advantage.

The lead was short lived however as Berglind Thorvaldsdottir found the equalizer just 48 seconds later as the redshirt freshman forward blasted a shot from 20 yards out for her third goal of the season. Kelsey Wys began the scoring play as her kick went well past midfield. Dagny Brynjarsdottir was on the receiving end of the ball flicking a pass to her left as Thorvaldsdottir timed her run perfectly, receiving the pass and striking the ball into the upper left corner for the goal.

"I just tried to get the second ball from Dagny," Thorvaldsdottir said. "I faded out a little bit and then ran inside, took a touch to the side and then fired a shot with my left foot."

"Our kids responded very well after Duke scored that goal; heck of a finish by Berglind," Krikorian added.

It marked the first time this year that the Seminoles have come from behind to pick up a win having registered a tie against Oklahoma State after trailing 1-0 to the Cowgirls in the second half earlier this year.

"It showed a lot of character to be able to come back from a goal down on the road," said Grubka. "Having this experience will definitely help us down the road this year."

Duke had a great scoring chance late in the first half when Weinberg fired a shot from inside the left box that was blocked by the Seminole defense. Weinberg collected the rebound and found Kaitlyn Kerr, who was wide open, but the senior midfielder's shot went wide of the right post as the game remained tied going into the break.

Despite a sluggish start to the second half for the Seminoles, it was Florida State that recorded the first scoring opportunity as a header by Kassey Kallman, off a direct free kick from Campbell, went off the left post and off a Duke defender for a corner kick in the 51st minute.

Kerr put a shot on goal in the 56th minute following a Duke corner but it was easily handled by Wys for the save.

In the 64th minute, a header by Grubka following another Campbell free kick went right into the hands of Blue Devils keeper Ali Kershner for the save as the score remained tied at one.

Duke looked to jump back on top for the second time on Sunday but Wys made an outstanding diving save in the 84th minute on a blistering shot by DeCesare from inside the box on the right side.

"It was definitely a physical battle today," Grubka said. "We proved it out there that we can compete with a physical team. Getting a win today was huge and getting a tie on Thursday was huge too, so it was a good start to ACC play."

Florida State outshot Duke 13-4 in the second half and 19-11 for the match. The Seminoles also held the advantage in corner kicks at 6-3. Thorvaldsdottir paced the Garnet & Gold with three shots, while six Seminoles recorded two shots each.

Wys played all 90 minutes in goal on Sunday making two saves to pick up the victory in net.

Fields' Late Goal Lifts FSU Over UNC.

The Seminoles have defeated the Tar Heels for the third straight time Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A left footed blast by Jamia Fields in the 83rd minute was all No. 3 Florida State (7-0-2, 2-0-1 ACC) needed Wednesday night as the Seminoles defeated No. 5 North Carolina (7-2-0, 1-2-0 ACC) 1-0 in front of a great crowd of 1,786 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

"It was fantastic," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said of the goal scored by Fields. "We train it quite often with her - coming across the face of the goal and swinging it into the far corner. She scored a similar goal to beat Duke a year ago here on this field. Jam's working hard to try and improve and she was rewarded for her hard work tonight."

The win marked Florida State's third straight victory over the Tar Heels becoming just the third school to perform such a feat matching a record previously set by Santa Clara (1999, 2001, 2002) and Maryland (2010-12).

The Seminoles now have five all-time wins over the Tar Heels with four of those victories coming since 2009. The five victories are also the second most against UNC all-time trailing only Notre Dame who has six.

"We had a game plan going into the game and I think we came out with the win because we executed it," Kelsey Wys said. "In the locker room we talked about safety versus risk and we know that North Carolina is a high paced team and we would have to make the decision whether we should possess the ball or play it long and get rid of it. I think tonight we did a good job of deciding when to do that and when no to."

In similar fashion to last year's victory over Duke at home, Fields blasted a shot from the right edge of the 18-yard box into the upper left corner for what would be the eventual game-winner. The junior midfielder took a pass from Michaela Hahn, went 1-v-1 with a Tar Heel defender beating her with a nice move toward the middle of the field before gaining enough space to bend her left footed shot into upper left corner. The goal was Fields' third of the season and first game-winner, while it was Hahn's second assist in 2013.

"We do that (shot) in warm-ups and our midfielders know to find the outside mid's," Fields said. "I knew just cut it in and take it wide, I practice it all the time."

The late goal was set up by a terrific defensive effort put forth by the Seminoles on Wednesday night. Redshirt senior keeper Kelsey Wys made a season-high nine saves en route to her sixth shutout of the season. The Seminole backline of Kirsten Crowley, Kassey Kallman, Kristin Grubka, Isabella Schmid and Carson Pickett along with Wys shut out the Tar Heels for the third straight game, while limiting the ever so dangerous Crystal Dunn to just three shots including only one shot on goal.

"We've been pretty solid throughout the season with our collective defending and again, I thought it was pretty good tonight," Krikorian said. "The moments where we weren't quite as sharp, certainly Kelsey (Wys) was there and played as a tower of strength in the goal and allowed us to withstand some of the storm."

"During the game, I was thinking about the back line and how blessed I am to be able to play with them and how easy they make my job because it could have been a lot harder," Wys said. "Carolina is a great team and we limited their chances and made them take some shots from farther out, so credit to my back line."

Wys has been on the receiving end of the last three shutouts against the Tar Heels making 18 saves in over 284 minutes on the pitch during that span.

"Always phenomenal," added Fields. "Kelsey (Wys) and Kassey (Kallman) are our two leaders, our captains in the back."

The Coral Springs, Fla., native was on her game early making five saves in the first 45 minutes of action. The Tar Heels wasted very little time pushing the offensive tempo to open the second half firing four shots in the first five minutes. Wys was there to stop three of those shots while the fourth, a header by Kealia Ohai went wide.

"In our minds, Kelsey Wys is certainly the best goal keeper in the country," added Krikorian. "She's steady as can be, she's calm and her quality (to play the ball) with her feet and communication, obviously her ability to stop shots is quite good. We're very fortunate that she's matured into the goalkeeper that she is, I think it was on display again tonight."

Ohai finished the evening with a game-high nine shots including four shots on goal. Grubka and Pickett paced the Seminoles with two shots each.

With less than two minutes remaining in the match, Florida State was called for a foul deep in UNC's offensive third. The ball was played into the box and after a massive scrummage in front of the net with someone looking to get on the end of one, Ohai pushed a header just wide of the left post and out of play.

The win on Wednesday night also extended Florida State's home unbeaten streak to 24 games (23-0-1) tying the school record originally set over three seasons from 2005-07. The Seminoles have not lost at home since falling to Maryland 3-0 on October 13, 2011.

Bakowska-Mathews Bends FSU Past NC State 1-0.

The junior midfielder scored the lone goal off a set piece in the 87th minute.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Junior midfielder Marta Bakowska-Mathews lifted No. 3 Florida State (8-0-2, 3-0-1 ACC) to a 1-0 victory over NC State (6-4-2, 1-3-0 ACC) scoring off a free kick in the 87th minute on Sunday afternoon inside the Seminole Soccer Complex. The goal was the first of the season for the English native.

"I thought it was a nice finish by Marta," head coach Mark Krikorian said. "She trains it all the time. She's capable of taking the ball and spinning it into the corner and this time it was fortunate that she was able to bend it right in."

The chance was created after Nickolette Driesse looked to dribble past an NC State defender when she drew the foul just outside the 18-yard box. Bakowska-Mathews broke the stalemate on the free kick, bending the shot into the upper left corner for her first career game-winning goal.

"I've practiced free kicks for hours," Bakowska-Mathews said. "It was so close to the goal and I knew I could make it. It felt really good (about it). I am really happy with my free kick and the practice really paid off."

With the win, the Seminoles extended their home unbeaten streak to 25 (24-0-1) which sets a new school record. The old mark of 24 (22-0-02) was set over the course of three seasons from 2005-2007. It also marked the 13th consecutive win over the Wolfpack.

FSU possessed the ball for a majority of the game, tallying 29 shots on the match as Driesse led the team with 10 blasts, three of which were on goal and two more off the post and crossbar. The freshman midfielder tied a school record for shots in a game, becoming the fourth Seminole to perform the feat and first since Mami Yamaguchi registered 10 shots against Jacksonville on October 24, 2007.

"I think 29 shots is a little misleading," Krikorian said. "We took some shots that I thought were na´ve. As I said before, we're a young team and our young kids are going to make different tactical mistakes through the course of time."

The chances were limited for the Wolfpack, however senior goalkeeper Kelsey Wys came up with a clutch save in the 60th minute as Kaley Shlaes dribbled into the box looking to sneak one past Wys but she was there for the save. The ball deflected out to Jackie Stengel, who pushed her shot wide.

Stengel had another opportunity late in the game with a header that was hauled in safely by Wys. The Coral Springs, Fla. native finished the day with two saves.

"I thought their coach had them very well organized," Krikorian added. "They put together a game plan that was exceptional and they executed it. It was frustrating at times, but my hope is that if we continue to get enough quality chances, we're going to score some goals. Our defending again was solid and Kelsey was there when we needed her."

In the 71st minute Jamia Fields looked to have an opportunity to score by taking a pass just outside the six yard box; however her shot went wide of the left post.

Driesse opened the second half with a low lining shot from the right side, but NC State's Mackenzie Stelljes made a diving save. The Wolfpack keeper was credited with eight saves on the day.

"I think we did a really good job in the final third being patient," Driesse said. "I think we were just really unlucky with finishing our shots. I felt really unlucky, but everyone told me to keep going and that it's going to come. So, I wasn't going to stop."

In the first half, the Seminoles amassed 13 shots in the first half, five coming from the foot of Driesse.

After missing a long shot high, the Wayne, N.J. native came right back and ripped a blast from 30-yards out off the cross bar. Anna McClung ran in on the rebound but could not find the back of the net as she one-timed a shot high and out of play in the 30th minute.

Driesse had another look in the 43rd minute from the right side of the 18-yard box that curled around the Wolfpack keeper and off the left post.

"Nikki is maturing quickly," Krikorian added. "I think she's brought elements to the game and certainly her possession play is very good. She had the ability to join the attack today and her willingness to go to the ground, tackle and compete for air balls is very promising. I think she is a great young player."

The Seminoles closed out the week with a perfect 2-0-0 record and now sits atop the ACC standings with 10 points (3-0-1).

Noles Roll Past Canes 4-0.

The Seminole extend their home unbeaten streak to 26 games (25-0-1) following Thursday night's victory over the Hurricanes.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 3 Florida State (9-0-2, 4-0-1 ACC) scored three first half goals and cruised to a 4-0 victory over intra-state rival Miami (6-4-0, 1-4-0 ACC) Thursday evening in front of a crowd of over 1,200 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Berglind Thorvaldsdottir scored the first two goals of the match for her second career multi-goal game of the season, while Jamia Fields and Carson Pickett each registered two assists in the win. Freshman Anna McClung broke through with her first collegiate goal late in the first half and Marta Bakowska-Mathews closed out the scoring on Thursday night with her second goal in as many games.

"We've had a lot of chances in an awful lot of games and unfortunately we were not quite good in the penalty box, but tonight we did a much better job of finishing our chances," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "It's nice to see Berglind (Thorvaldsdottir) come in and knock a couple in and Anna (McClung) as well, as that was her first goal; and what a heck of a finish by Marta (Bakowska-Mathews) at the end."

The Florida State defense was once again up for the challenge limiting Miami to just one shot as the Seminoles posted their league leading eighth shutout of the season. The Garnet & Gold have allowed just three goals through the first 11 matches and only one over the last 617:54.

"Our defending was quite good and solid," Krikorian added. "Overall I'm pleased with the way our kids played tonight."

With the win, the Seminoles maintained their lead atop the ACC standings with 13 points. Florida State also kept its home unbeaten streak alive following Thursday night's victory pushing the school record mark to 26 games (25-0-1).

Thorvaldsdottir opened the scoring in the 16th minute thanks to a great passing combination from Nickolette Driesse and Jamia Fields. Driesse found Fields streaking down the right side of the pitch. The Alta Loma, Calif., native then made a great low lining pass back into the middle of the 18-yard box where Thorvaldsdottir one-timed the cross off Miami keeper Emily Lillard and into the net.

"The biggest thing was scoring in the first half and by scoring in the first 15 minutes it really opened up the game," Pickett said. "I think we put some passes together and finished our chances when we could."

The Icelandic native was at it again in the 25th minute redirecting a cross from Fields inside the left post for her team leading fifth goal of the season to give FSU a 2-0 edge. The assist for Fields was her second of the game, first multi-assist game of the season and third of her career. With the two assists tonight, Fields now has 10 career assists in ACC play moving her into sole possession of second place in the Florida State record books.

"It felt really good," said Thorvaldsdottir. "I'm glad I'm scoring goals again. Overall, our performance was really good. In the last game, it was pretty frustrating because we didn't finish our chances. It was nice to see a lot of people scoring goals and creating chances tonight."

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 3-0 in the 38th minute courtesy of McClung's first collegiate goal. Pickett began the scoring chance blasting a shot from about 25 yards out that Lillard saved but could not handle. McClung out raced everyone to the loose ball as she put away the rebound for the goal.

"It felt great, especially against an ACC team," McClung said on scoring her first goal. "We had lots of goals with great finishes and I'm glad I could contribute to that tonight."

Pickett would record her second assist of the night in the 83rd minute as her cross deflected off a Miami defender right to Bakowska-Mathews, who finished with a beautiful shot inside the right post from about 20 yards out for her second goal of the season. It marked Pickett's first career multi-assist game.

Florida State outshot Miami 17-1 for the match including an 11-0 margin in the first half. Miami's lone shot did not come until the 78th minute when Betsy Middleton fired a low-liner from just inside the 18-yard box, but the ball was blocked by Kirsten Crowley.

"It's a great feeling, but it doesn't mean we have to give up on defense," added Pickett. "That's the biggest thing - even though we are scoring we have to play just as good on defense to make sure they don't get one in the back of our net."

Seminole keeper Kelsey Wys played all 90 minutes between the posts to earn her eighth shutout of the season and in the process lowered her ACC leading goals against average to 0.26.

Noles Earn Tie At Clemson.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scores a late goal to even the game as the Noles earn a tie on the road.

CLEMSON, SC - No. 3 Florida State (9-0-3, 4-0-2 ACC) earned a hard fought 1-1 tie at Clemson (6-2-3, 3-1-1 ACC) Sunday afternoon inside historic Riggs Field thanks to a late equalizer by Dagny Brynjarsdottir as the Seminoles stayed unbeaten on the year.

"Obviously we go into every game hoping and expecting that we are going to win the game, but credit to Clemson they came out, had a fantastic game plan and executed that game plan," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "They scored a nice goal and made us chase the game."

Clemson grabbed the early lead on a goal by Vanessa Laxgang in the 11th minute. Claire Wagner sent a deep ball down the left hand side of the pitch over the Seminole defense. Laxgang ran in on the ball and one-timed a shot into the upper right corner for her fifth goal of the season to give the Tigers a 1-0 advantage.

The lead would hold until the 86th minute when Brynjarsdottir tied the match at 1-1 on her fourth goal of the season. Nickolette Driesse earned the assist on the play sending a cross into the box that was initially tipped by Clemson keeper Kailen Sheridan. Brynjarsdottir was on the receiving end of the loose ball, as she collected the ball, turned and fired with her left foot to find the back of the net.

The late goal by Brynjarsdottir marked the sixth time this year the Seminoles have scored after the 80th minute of play.

"The bright part is that our group continues to battle and be resilient in tough situations," added Krikorian. "But we have to be more efficient. There are times when we are taking these shots from long range and making it easier for the opposing keepers. We can't afford to just give the ball away and lose possessions.

"But that's the game of soccer, we have to continue to create chances and then finish them. On the day, we created a few good chances but their goalkeeper was quite good and their defending was good.

Brynjarsdottir finished with a match-high five shots as four came in the second half including three on goal. The Icelandic native had a great scoring chance seconds before tying the match as she had a one-on-one opportunity with Sheridan after a great pass from Berglind Thorvaldsdottir found her wide open on the right side of the 18-yard box. But the Tiger keeper came in with a diving save to keep Clemson's lead intact.

Neither team was able to put together much offensively in overtime as the only shot came from Clemson with nine seconds left in the second overtime. Jenna Polonsky's shot came off a corner but the Seminole defense blocked the shot as the game ended in a tie.

The tie extended Florida State's unbeaten streak in the series to 15 games (12-0-3).

Florida State finished the match out shooting Clemson 13-10, while the Seminoles held the edge in corners at 6-1.

Seminole keeper Kelsey Wys played the entire 110 minutes in goal making five saves on the afternoon. Sheridan finished with eight saves in 110 minutes for Clemson.

"Again I thought our group was pretty resilient in the second half and overtime periods and started to play a whole lot better," Krikorian said. "The message to everybody is if you don't come and bring your best performance in this conference than you are not going to win.

"Credit Clemson, they are a good team and they are going to continue to take points and win games in the ACC. We just have to be better; our players know it."

Florida State wasn't able to generate a whole lot offensively in the first half as Clemson outshot the Seminoles 6-5. The best scoring opportunity for the Noles in the first half came in the 17th minute when Jamia Fields sent a cross into the box that was headed on goal by Brynjarsdottir, but Sheridan was there for the save.

Clemson put five of its six first half shots on goal with Wys making four saves. Sheridan made all three of her saves as the Seminoles went into the locker room trailing for the first time this year.

Four Second Half Goals Lead FSU Past BC.

The Seminoles erases a two-goal deficit to remain unbeaten on the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - It was a tale of two halves Thursday night inside the Seminole Soccer Complex as No. 5 Florida State (10-0-3, 5-0-2 ACC) erased a two-goal deficit scoring four second half goals en route to a 4-3 victory over Boston College (6-6-0, 3-4-0 ACC).

A lively crowd of 1,060 was on hand to witness the largest come-from-behind victory at home since October 7, 2001 when Florida State came back from two down to defeat Duke, 3-2, in overtime.

"In the first half, besides making a mental mistake or two, I thought that we played some pretty good soccer," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "But against good teams, you can't make mistakes and we paid the price twice tonight. We are not going to be able to survive if we continue to make mental mistakes.

"The good news is that I felt there was an awful lot of good soccer that went on through the course of the match. We had some pretty good chances and some quality finishes. Overall, when you look at the big picture, its three points in the ACC against a good BC team. We had to fight back from a two-goal deficit which is never easy and find a way to win."

Thursday night also marked the Florida State Athletic Department's kickoff to the `Paint It Pink' campaign as the Seminole Soccer team donned pink jerseys in an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer. The game worn jerseys will be auctioned off online at Seminoles.com for two weeks beginning Wednesday, October 9.

"Playing for the cause is just fantastic," added Krikorian. "The crowd here in Tallahassee was great and they are always very supportive. I thought that the players, coming out here wearing the pink shirts in support of breast cancer and breast cancer awareness, is for a great cause."

The win kept the Seminoles unbeaten on the year, while running FSU's school record home unbeaten streak to 27 games (26-0-1).

"It was a pretty tough game," said Berglind Thorvaldsdottir. "We fought a lot in the second half to get back in it. It felt like we definitely wanted it more and we ended up with the win."

The home unbeaten streak looked to be in jeopardy early as the Eagles jumped out to a two goal lead through the first 14 minutes of play as McKenzie Meehan scored twice in a span of one minute and 57 seconds to give BC a 2-0 advantage.

The first Boston College goal came off a quick restart following a Seminole foul deep in the Eagles' offensive third. Madison Meehan took a pass from the left side of the pitch and fired it on goal but it was blocked by the Seminole defense. The ball deflected inside the 6-yard box where it remained as both teams fought for possession. McKenzie Meehan finally found the loose ball and one-timed it into the back of the net for the goal and a 1-0 BC lead.

The Eagles pushed their lead to 2-0 as McKenzie Meehan once again found the back of the net on a great pass from Gibby Wagner that split FSU's central defense. Meehan ran in on the ball and blasted a shot from about 20 yards out that found the back of the net.

The two goals by Meehan in the first 14 minutes marked the first time that FSU had allowed more than one goal in a match this year.

For the second straight game, the Seminoles went into the locker room trailing but on Thursday night FSU faced its largest deficit of the season.

After Kelsey Wys made an outstanding diving save to prevent Meehan from recording a hat trick in the 51st minute, the tide seemed to turn in favor of Florida State as the Seminoles picked up their offensive intensity.

"We came out with a little more fight (in the second half)," said sophomore midfielder Carson Pickett. "We weren't staying true to what we know. But in the second half, we were getting the passes that we needed; we were connecting and moving a lot more."

FSU was rewarded for its fight in the 56th minute when Pickett got the Seminoles on the board with her first goal of the season. The play started when Kassey Kallman sent a long ball down the left hand side of the field. Megan Campbell did an outstanding job to get to the ball before it rolled passed the end line one-timing the ball back up towards the middle of the 18-yard box. Dagny Brynjarsdottir received the ball, reversed the play back to her left, leaving the ball for Pickett, who one-timed a shot into the upper right corner to cut the BC lead to 2-1.

"No matter who scores that first goal it will always be a game changer," added Pickett. "We felt like we were getting the momentum back on our side. When we scored that goal, it got everyone going."

Campbell created the equalizer in the 65th minute as her long throw-in went off a BC player from inside the 6-yard box and into the back of the net for an own goal.

"We always fight no matter what," said Pickett. "We talked about it in the locker room, `we are fine, there is no reason to freak out.' Even though we were down, we knew we could fight back as a team."

Less than eight minutes later a great passing combination from Michaela Hahn to Jamia Fields led to a goal by Thorvaldsdottir to give the Seminoles their first lead of the match at 3-2. Hahn played a through ball to Fields, who passed across the 18-yard box to a sliding Thorvaldsdottir, who timed her run perfectly on the near post to score her team leading sixth goal of the season.

FSU's lead was short lived as the Eagles' Zoe Lombard tied the match at 3-3 in the 78th minute off a BC set piece. A Seminole foul deep in BC's offensive third once again led to a goal as Lauren Bernard sent the free kick inside the box to Lombard who headed the ball into the back of the net for her first goal of the season.

The Seminoles would retake the lead in the 82nd minute on a penalty kick conversion by Marta Bakowska-Mathews. Thorvaldsdottir created the pk opportunity when she was taken down from behind inside the box after a great entry pass from Fields. The goal by Bakowska-Mathews' was her third of the season and second game-winner.

Florida State outshot Boston College 21-9 on the night, while holding the advantage in corner kicks at 4-0. The win also kept the Seminoles undefeated all-time against the Eagles at home (7-0-0).

Brynjarsdottir's Golden Goal Lifts FSU Past Syracuse.

The Seminoles remain unbeaten on the year running their streak to 14 games (11-0-3).

SYRACUSE, NY - Dagny Brynjarsdottir's golden goal in the first overtime period gave No. 3 Florida State (11-0-3, 6-0-2 ACC) a 1-0 victory over Syracuse (5-8-1, 1-6-1 ACC) Thursday night inside the SU Soccer Stadium.

The win kept the Seminoles unbeaten on the year running their streak to 14 games, tying the record set last year when FSU opened the 2012 campaign with 14 straight victories.

"We knew coming in that this was going to be a tough game," said Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian. "Phil (Wheddon) and his staff do an outstanding job of organizing their team and their kids are committed to it. We knew that when we had a couple of good looks earlier in the game and we didn't finish them that the longer the game was 0-0 the more the pendulum swings."

The goal came off a long throw-in by Megan Campbell as the junior defender heaved the ball inside the 6-yard box that bounced once before finding the head of Brynjarsdottir, who put the ball into the back of the net for her fifth goal of the season, third game-winner and first career golden goal.

"When we got the throw-in there in overtime, we knew it was a big chance for us," said Campbell. "Everyone piled into the box hoping to get a good shot on goal. It looked like their keeper got confused on (Kristin) Grubka's run which allowed the ball to bounce straight to Dagny who was able to put the ball away."

"It was a long throw-in by Megan that went over the head of Grubka and hit the ground," added Brynjarsdottir. "My timing was good as I was at the right place at the right time to put the ball away for the goal."

With the win, Florida State kept pace with Virginia, who defeated Notre Dame in double overtime on Thursday night, near the top of the ACC standings. The Seminoles currently sit in second place with 20 points, one point shy of the first place Cavaliers (21 points).

"At the end of the day, when you go on the road and come away with three points you feel good about it," added Krikorian. "But I think we need to be cleaner in our finishing around the box. If we do that the game will come easier for us."

Florida State finished the game out shooting Syracuse 14-4, while maintaining an 8-0 advantage in corner kicks. Brynjarsdottir led all players with four shots including three shots on goal.

FSU keeper Kelsey Wys was once again magnificent in goal for the Seminoles as she played every minute on Thursday night making two saves to earn her ninth shutout of the season. The redshirt senior came through with an outstanding diving save in the 72nd minute on a free kick following a questionable foul call deep in the Orange's attacking third.

SU's Stephanie Skilton took the free kick sending a low lining shot across the box to the far post. Wys made the diving stop to her left and then recovered in time to grab the loose ball to end Syracuse's scoring threat.

"I'm proud of our kids," said Krikorian. "We came in, fought hard and did a lot of good things to get the win. But credit to Syracuse, they were very organized and did a very good job of limiting our chances around the goal."

Florida State controlled the offensive tempo for a majority of the first half as the Seminoles went in to halftime with a 7-2 shot advantage and 3-0 margin in corners but had nothing to show for it on the scoreboard.

The Seminoles first scoring opportunity came in the eighth minute off a throw-in by Campbell. Grubka won the ball on the near post flicking it across the 6-yard box where Brynjarsdottir headed the ball off the crossbar and out of play.

In the 23rd minute, Syracuse's Jackie Firenze got in behind the Seminole defense creating a one-on-one opportunity with Wys. The FSU keeper went out to cut off Firenze's path down the field causing the Orange midfielder to blast a shot high over the crossbar.

Just over three minutes later, Nickolette Driesse slid a shot wide of the left post after a nice passing combination that saw Jamia Fields send a ball down to a streaking Kirsten Crowley who sent a cross to the far post for Driesse.

The Orange were called for two fouls deep in FSU's offensive third late in the first half with the best scoring chance coming in the 38th minute when Michaela Hahn was tripped from behind. Marta Bakowska-Mathews took the free kick from about 20 yards out sending the ball just wide of the left post.

"They played really tight as a team," said Brynjarsdottir. "I felt like we did an okay job of keeping the ball but we could have been a little more relaxed as we had more time to distribute and create."

Neither team was able to create much offensively in the second half but the best scoring chance for the Seminoles came in the 76th minute when Fields sent a great ball to a streaking Carson Pickett, who one-timed a shot high and out of play from about 15 yards.

Overtime has been nothing new for Florida State in 2013 as Thursday night marked the fifth time the Seminoles have played extra time. The Seminoles improved to 2-0-3 in overtime courtesy of Brynjarsdottir's goal in the 95th minute.

The goal was also significant as it marked the ninth time this year the Seminoles have scored after the 80th minute with six of those goals resulting in game-winners.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Blanks Pitt, 4-0.

The Seminoles tie a season-high with four goals while holding the Panthers without a shot in the win.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Four different Seminoles scored on Sunday afternoon as No. 3 Florida State (12-0-3, 7-0-2 ACC) kept its unbeaten record intact blanking Pittsburgh (4-10-1, 0-9-0 ACC) 4-0 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Anna McClung, Dagny Brynjarsdottir, Marta Bakowska-Mathews and Carson Pickett all found the back of the net on Sunday as the four goals tied a season-high for the Seminoles.

"From start to finish it was a fairly solid performance," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "It's another ACC win; a good defending performance, a good attacking performance and a solid win."

Defensively, Florida State held the Panthers without a shot and a corner kick opportunity. FSU finished with a 31-0 advantage in shots and 14-0 margin in corners. The 31 shots tied a season-high (Oklahoma State, 9/6), while it marked the most corners taken by the Seminoles this year. The Seminoles held the opponent without a shot for the first time in 2013 and for the fifth time in school history. The last time FSU did not allow a shot was against Jackson State on September 21, 2012.

"I thought our defending was very good and very solid," added Krikorian. "We have a good group of defenders and of course Kelsey (Wys) in the net, when the opportunity arises she is always there to help us. Again, it was a good game for us."

"Our defense starts from the top," said defender Megan Campbell. "By us pressing really high, it forced them to make mistakes. You could see that we held a majority of the possession thanks to our pressure. We worked well defensively today."

With the win, Florida State kept pace with Virginia, who defeated Wake Forest on Sunday, near the top of the ACC standings. The Seminoles currently sit in second place with 23 points, one point shy of the first place Cavaliers (24 points).

Sunday's victory was also significant running FSU's unbeaten streak to 15 games breaking the previous school record of 14 games (14-0-0) set last year. It also extended the Seminoles' school record home unbeaten streak and the longest active home unbeaten streak in the nation to 28 games (27-0-1), a mark that started back in 2011.

Florida State broke through right before the half on McClung's second goal of the season in the 40th minute. Yulie Lopez gained possession on a 50/50 ball in the air before sending a low pass to McClung, who flicked the ball behind her and back toward the middle of the field. The freshman from Gate City, Va., made a quick turn to her right before blasting a shot inside the left corner of the net from about 14 yards for what would eventually be her first career game-winning goal. Lopez was credited with an assist on the play, her second of the season.

"We could all feel it was coming," said Krikorian on getting the goal right before the half. "It was just a matter of the right combination of players being precise enough and making it happen. There wasn't any panic it was just a matter of finishing our chances to ease the pressure coming out in the second half."

"I think it eased some of the tension," said McClung on finding the back of the net in the 40th minute. "Yulie gave me a great ball; I took a touch, turned with it and followed it into the net. It was a good first goal and we knew after that many more would come."

The Seminoles wasted little time going on the attack to open the second half scoring two goals within two minutes and two seconds to take a three goal lead.

"We had to change our mindset some," said McClung. "After halftime, we came out a little more focused and I think it made a big difference."

The first of the two goals came in the 51st minute when Brynjarsdottir put away a long cross from Megan Campbell with a header right under the crossbar from about four yards out for her sixth goal of the season.

Just over two minutes later, Jamia Fields blasted a shot that deflected off the hand of a Pitt defender inside the 18-yard box leading to a penalty kick opportunity for the Seminoles. Marta Bakowska-Mathews successfully converted the pk for her fourth goal of the season.

The Seminoles finished the scoring in the 88th minute when Pickett picked up her second goal of the season. The sophomore midfielder sent a bending shot toward the near post that deflected off a Pitt player and into the goal.

Kelsey Wys played all 90 minutes between the posts to earn her 10th shutout of the season. In the process, she lowered her goals against average to 0.44 on the year.

FLORIDA STATE 2, MARYLAND 1
10/20/2013, TALLAHASSEE, FL

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Hangs On For 2-1 Win Over Maryland.

The Icelandic duo each scores a goal as the Seminoles remain unbeaten on the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 3 Florida State (13-0-3, 8-0-2 ACC) scored a goal in each half and then held off a late threat from Maryland (8-8-0, 4-6-0 ACC) to remain unbeaten on the year with a 2-1 victory over the Terps Sunday afternoon inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

FSU's Icelandic duo each a scored a goal in the win as the Seminoles remained unbeaten at home this year running the nation's longest current home unbeaten streak to 29 games (28-0-1).

The victory on Sunday avenged the last home loss for Florida State when Maryland came to Tallahassee back on October 13, 2011 and defeated the Noles 3-0. FSU out shot Maryland 21-3 in that match, but the Terps converted on all three shots for the win.

"Maryland came in here after playing against Miami on Thursday and battled us hard," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "I thought there were a lot of segments throughout the course of the game where we were not sharp enough. We had a lot of different chances to create opportunities, the final pass wasn't the right weight or the run wasn't quite proper. Overall, we are happy with the win but I'm not sure if we are thrilled with the way we played."

With the win, Florida State kept pace with Virginia, who defeated North Carolina on Sunday, near the top of the ACC standings. The Seminoles currently sit in second place with 26 points, four points shy of the first place Cavaliers (30 points).

Berglind Thorvaldsdottir opened the scoring on Sunday with a goal in the seventh minute finishing from about 16 yards out with a low-lining shot inside the right post for her seventh goal of the season. Megan Campbell began the scoring play winning possession off an attempted Maryland clear from Terrapin goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands. The ball went to Isabella Schmid, who sent a pass to Thorvaldsdottir. The freshman forward slipped the ball behind the Terrapin defense, ran in on the ball and one-timed a shot into the back of the net for the goal.

Shots were hard to come by in the first half as the two teams combined for three shots through the first 45 minutes with the Noles taking a 2-1 edge into the locker room.

Both schools turned up the offensive intensity in the second half with each team taking eight shots including two shots on goal.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 2-0 in the 63rd minute on Dagny Brynjarsdottir's seventh goal of the season. Florida State put together another great passing combination to score the goal as Jamia Fields sent a beautiful pass to Michaela Hahn that sailed just over the head of a Maryland defender. Hahn dribbled the ball down toward the end line where she sent a cross into the 6-yard. Brynjarsdottir timed her run perfectly one-timing the pass from Hahn into the back of the net.

"That's how I want to play, that's the view I am looking for, quick combinations," said Krikorian on the build-up that led to Florida State's two goals on Sunday. "On the first goal, Bella gave Berglind a fantastic ball and Berglind showed great quality in picking her spot and finishing. The second one was on a corner kick that was cleared out. Jamia gave Michaela a nice ball; Michaela of course had a wonderful touch and sent a well driven ball across the six for Dagny. That is my view and vision of the game and I am hoping to see more of that in the future."

The two-goal margin would hold up until the 88th minute when a failed clear by the Seminoles led to a Maryland goal. Ashley Spivey flicked the ball over her left shoulder and into the upper left corner of the net for her sixth goal of the season.

The Terrapins would attempt a corner with just over a minute to play, but the Seminoles were up for the challenge successfully thwarting the threat to hold on for the one-goal victory.

"We weren't as sharp as we needed to be this afternoon," added Krikorian. "We are going to get bit pretty hard if we are not more precise than we were today."

Brynjarsdottir led the Noles with three shots on the afternoon, while Hahn and Carson Pickett each attempted two shots.

Kelsey Wys picked up the win as she played all 90 minutes between the posts and registered a save.

FLORIDA STATE 2, VIRGINIA TECH 1
10/24/2013, BLACKSBURG, VA

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Brynjarsdottir Paces FSU Past Virginia Tech.

The junior midfielder notches her second career multi-goal game in the win over the Hokies.

BLACKSBURG, VA - No. 3 Florida State (14-0-3, 9-0-2 ACC) ran its unbeaten streak to 17-games courtesy of Dagny Brynjarsdottir's second career multi-goal game as the Seminoles went on the road and defeated No. 4 Virginia Tech (13-2-2, 8-2-1 ACC) 2-1 Thursday night on Thompson Field.

The junior midfielder broke a 1-1 tie in the 87th minute putting away a beautiful cross from Carson Pickett for her team leading ninth goal of the season and fifth game-winner.

"The winning goal was quite nice," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "We know that Carson has the ability to serve good balls and Dagny is quite imposing in and around the box. She is getting better and better and I thought the sequence that led to the goal was quite nice."

Florida State improved to 5-0-1 against ranked foes in 2013 as three of those wins have come against top five opponents. The Seminoles also remained unbeaten all-time against the Hokies improving to 12-0-1 all-time and 5-0-0 in Blacksburg.

Despite being outshot 7-2 in the second half, Florida State made its second shot count as Pickett sent a high arching cross from the left side of the field to the far post where Brynjarsdottir headed home the ball inside the left post for her second goal of the evening.

The score marked the 11th time this year that Florida State has registered a goal after the 80th minute including the eighth time in which a goal has given the Noles the lead for good or tied up a match.

"We walk away feeling good that we came into Blacksburg leaving with three points," added Krikorian. "Quite frankly the better team did not win tonight. Virginia Tech was better than we were for a vast majority of the game. But credit to our kids for hanging in there, being resilient and continuing to compete and finding a way to win. Through the course of play today we weren't as good as we needed to be."

Florida State went on top early when the Icelandic native found the back of the net in the 16th minute of play to give the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage. Isabella Schmid began the scoring play sending a cross into the six-yard box where both Berglind Thorvaldsdottir and a Hokie defender fought for possession of the ball. Brynjarsdottir ran in on the loose ball at the top of the 18-yard box drilling the ball inside the left post under a diving Dayle Colpitts for the score.

Virginia Tech registered five shots in the first half to just three for Florida State with two of the Hokie shots going on goal. Kelsey Wys was up for the challenge on both shots including a great save on an Ashley Meier shot from about seven yards out that she tipped over the cross bar and out of play.

The Hokies dominated possession in the second half keeping the Seminole defense on their heels. Virginia Tech was rewarded for its pressure in the 72nd minute when Shannon Mayrose intercepted a pass inside the Hokies' attacking third. She sent the ball over to Meier, who blasted a shot inside the left post from just inside the 18-yard box for her eighth goal of the season.

Florida State's first shot of the second half didn't come until the 77th minute when Kirsten Crowley sent a cross from the right side back toward the top of the 18-yard box. Brynjarsdottir ran back toward the ball and sent a shot wide of the left post.

Virginia Tech finished the match out shooting Florida State 12-5 and maintaining a 9-0 advantage in corner kicks. The five shots were a season-low for the Seminoles, while it marked the first time this year FSU did not register a corner.

"Spacing was a little bit of an issue," said Krikorian. "Virginia Tech's movement off the ball and their ability to connect passes tonight was better than what we were able to do. We just weren't good enough with the ball and we didn't link the passes together as we should making the game a lot harder for ourselves."

Brynjarsdottir recorded all five of FSU's shots on the night with four going on goal. She now has a team-high nine goals on the year matching her career-high set last year.

FSU Falls In Overtime At Virginia.

The Seminoles' school record unbeaten streak comes to an end at 17 games.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - No. 3 Florida State (14-1-3, 9-1-2 ACC) suffered its first loss of the season on Sunday afternoon falling to No. 1 Virginia (18-0-0, 12-0-0 ACC) 1-0 in overtime on a golden goal by UVa's Annie Steinlage.

A Klockner Stadium record crowd of 3,894 was on hand to witness the battle of two top three teams and the last two remaining unbeaten teams in the nation.

After both schools could not crack the scoreboard during regulation, Virginia needed just 54 seconds in the first overtime to net the game-winner. The Cavaliers built up their attack leading to Steinlage's first goal of the season following a Seminole foul just beyond midfield. Molly Menchel sent a pass from the left side of the pitch to Steinlage, who collected the ball, turned toward the middle of the 18-yard box and fired a shot inside the left post, past a diving Kelsey Wys for the goal.

"Virginia is a very good team," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "They are certainly well coached, disciplined and very talented. They have quality all over the field. There is a reason they are undefeated and the No. 1 team in the country and they showed that today."

The loss closed the book on FSU's school record unbeaten streak which ended at 17 games, while it marked the fourth straight year that the regular season match-up between Florida State and Virginia went to overtime. The Garnet & Gold also fell to 0-9-1 all-time inside Klockner Stadium.

The Seminoles were held to a season-low in shots on Sunday recording just one with that coming off the foot of Michaela Hahn in the 63rd minute. The Cavaliers were called for a foul inside FSU's attacking third leading to a free kick that Hahn sent high of the goal from about 30 yards out.

Virginia closed out the match with 14 shots including five on goal as Wys finished the afternoon with four saves for the Seminoles. The Cavaliers also held the advantage in corners at 7-2.

"In the first half, Virginia was very good," said Krikorian. "They limited our opportunity on the ball and in the second half I felt we were a little bit better in being able to gain some territory in the game. From start to finish, Virginia was better than we were today."

The best scoring opportunity in the second half came from Virginia in the 52nd minute when Makenzy Doniak sent a high shot on goal from about 10 yards out that forced Wys to make a tip save over her head. The redshirt senior goalkeeper then back pedaled toward the goal and was able to recover in time to control the ball before it crossed the goal line to keep the match knotted at zero.

Neither team found the back of the net in the first half as Virginia went into the locker room with a 5-0 advantage in shots. It marked the first time this year the Seminoles did not register a shot in the first 45 minutes of play.

The best scoring chance for either team came in the ninth minute when Doniak blasted a shot off the left post from about 15 yards out.

FSU created a corner kick opportunity in the 39th minute off a long throw-in by Megan Campbell. The ball was deflected off a Cavalier defender and out of bounds. Carson Pickett's corner kick went to the far post but Virginia was able to clear the ball without a threat from the Seminoles.

"This is obviously a very challenging road trip when you have to come in and play No. 4 Virginia Tech and then the number one team in the country," added Krikorian. "There is never an easy game in the ACC and that is part of the beauty of playing in this conference. Every time out you are going to challenged and you have to bring your `A'-game or you're not going to find a result. Today Virginia was better than us and they found the result."

FSU Wins Thriller Over Notre Dame In Double OT.

Marta Bakowska-Mathews scores both goals for her first career multi-goal game.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Marta Bakowska-Mathews' diving header in double overtime gave No. 3 Florida State (15-1-3, 10-1-2 ACC) a thrilling 2-1 come-from-behind victory over No. 19 Notre Dame (11-6-1, 7-5-1 ACC) Thursday night inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The Fighting Irish clinked to a one-goal lead late before Bakowska-Mathews' broke through with the equalizer with two minutes and 35 seconds left in regulation. Carson Pickett began the scoring play as she looked to put a shot on frame but the ball deflected off the foot of Michaela Hahn and right to Bakowska-Mathews, who buried the shot into the upper right corner from about 20 yards out for the goal.

"I'm excited for the team and myself," said Bakowska-Mathews on coming through with both goals on Thursday night. "I'm really happy we could win the last home game for the seniors; it's just great."

"It's awesome stepping on the field with these girls because I know even if we go down, there's four-minutes left, we know this is our prime time," said senior captain Kassey Kallman. "It brings a lot of composure to our team and we all know that we have that in us (to fight back). Tonight, we were able to keep playing our game. We've gotten that result a ton of times (this year) and tonight it just helped us have more confidence."

The goal was FSU's 12th of the season after the 80th minute of play which has resulted in either a tie score or a game-winner. Bakowska-Mathews' golden goal in double overtime made it goal No. 13 after the 80th minute.

"The resiliency of this team is really good," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "We've see it a number of times through the course of the season and as a coach it's a great feeling - even in the 90th minute that last tick on the clock to give yourself a chance, to have that kind of fight.

"It wasn't easy tonight. We were playing without Dagny (Brynjarsdottir) and Nikki Driesse had a bit of a stomach problem and she wasn't able to continue. But some of our kids that came off the bench made a great impression and influenced the outcome of the game."

Notre Dame threatened to retake the lead a minute and 19 seconds later but Kelsey Wys came through with a huge save on a blast from Morgan Andrews. Wys made the save with her forearms allowing the ball to bounce around inside the 6-yard box before Megan Campbell was able to clear the ball out of harm's way and push the game to extra time.

In double overtime, Campbell made a nice run down the left side of the pitch freeing up enough room to send a cross into a wide open space in the middle of the 18-yard box. Bakowska-Mathews timed her run perfectly finishing with an all-out diving header that found the inside of the left post just passed a diving Kaela Little for the Seminoles' third golden goal of the season.

It was FSU's seventh overtime match of the season as the Seminoles improved to 3-1-3 on the year.

Bakowska-Mathews finished the evening with her first career multi-goal game as the native from Herne Bay, England now has a career-high six goals on the season. The game-winning assist for Campbell was her third in 2013.

With the win, Florida State extended the nation's longest active home unbeaten streak to 30 games (29-0-1), while the Seminoles completed the regular season unbeaten at home (11-0-1) for the second year in a row and third time in school history.

Notre Dame went on top early thanks to a beautiful goal by Anna Gilbertson. The sophomore forward bent a shot from the top right corner of the 18-yard box inside the left post for her fourth goal of the season.

The Irish came within inches of pushing their lead to 2-0 just minutes into the second half but a long range shot by Andrews caromed off the crossbar.

The Fighting Irish finished the game with a 17-16 advantage in shots as Andrews led all players on Thursday night with five. Bakowska-Mathews and Berglind Thorvaldsdottir paced the Seminoles with a team-high three shots each.

On Senior Night at the Plex, Wys played the entire time in goal finishing the game with six saves. Kallman had two shots including one on goal in the first half. The one shot on goal came in the 25th minute off one of nine Florida State corner kicks on the evening. Bakowska-Mathews sent a great bending ball on the corner to the far post where Kallman's header looked as though it was going to find the back of the net but the shot ricocheted off teammate Kirsten Crowley allowing the Irish to clear the ball and keep the match knotted at zero.

"Notre Dame gave us all that we could handle," said Krikorian. "I'm proud of the effort that our people put forth. Notre Dame is a very good team. I have all the respect in the world for their group and we walk away feeling happy that we were able to get this win. It's another quality win and now we get ready for the ACC Tournament."

FSU Downs Duke In ACC Quarterfinals.

The Seminoles score two second half goals to advance to the semifinals in Cary, N.C.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A pair of second half goals just a minute and 30 seconds apart was all that was needed on a beautiful Sunday afternoon as second-seeded Florida State (16-1-3) defeated seventh-seeded Duke (8-8-4), 2-0, in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament.

The Seminoles advanced to their 10th ACC Tournament semifinal appearance with the win on Sunday where they will face third-seeded North Carolina on Friday, November 8 at 8:00 p.m. at WakeMed Park in Cary, N.C. The Tar Heels were 1-0 winners over Boston College.

"I thought it was a good solid performance," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "In the first half we came out and played into a very strong wind and I thought our kids did a pretty good job of limiting the opportunities by Duke.

"We came out quickly, scored a couple and then were able to go out and do as we needed to end the game. Duke is a good team. They are going to get themselves into the NCAA Tournament and they are going to win the in NCAA Tournament as well."

With the win, Florida State extended its school record home unbeaten streak to 31 games (30-0-1), while moving to 12-0-1 inside the Seminole Soccer Complex in 2013.

After both teams could not find the back of the net in the first half combining to take just six shots, Florida State broke through with the game's first goal in the 52nd minute when Megan Campbell was dragged down in the penalty box by Natasha Anasi leading to a penalty kick chance. Isabella Schmid took the kick and successfully converted the opportunity for her first goal of the season to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

Less than two minutes later, FSU extended its lead to 2-0 on a great left footed blast by Kristin Grubka. The junior defender ran in on the loose ball from about 15 yards out following a corner kick by Michaela Hahn and drilled the ball into the upper left corner of the net for her second goal of season as both have come against the Blue Devils.

"The ball kind of dropped down right in front of me...I ran in on it, wound up and struck it with my left foot, hoping it would go in," said Grubka.

"After we scored the second goal, we did a pretty good job of absorbing their pressure and holding the ball a little bit," added Krikorian. "I thought overall it was a pretty solid performance."

Kelsey Wys made an outstanding kick save during the early moments of the second half to shift the momentum in favor of the Seminoles. The redshirt senior keeper found herself in a one-one-on situation against Duke's Kara Wilson, who received a great ball from Toni Payne. Wilson tried to beat Wys with a ball to the right post, but the Seminole keeper was there with a tremendous save to keep the game scoreless.

Duke's only other scoring chance came late in the first half when Malinda Allen's shot off a Blue Devil corner kick was saved by Wys. The ball bounced around in the 6-yard box before Kaitlyn Kerr was able to get on the end of it sending a shot just wide of the left post.

The two-goal lead would be more than enough for the Seminole defense who posted their 11th shutout of the season. Wys finished the afternoon with two saves and in the process became Florida State's all-time wins leader with four in the ACC Tournament.

"It was pretty big, but a 2-0 lead is always dangerous," added Grubka. "Our defense held on strong for the last 30 minutes of play so I was pretty happy with that result."

Florida State's defensive effort of Kirsten Crowley, Kassey Kallman, Grubka, Campbell and Schmid did a fabulous job of limiting the Blue Devils to six shots on the afternoon and just two on goal.

Marta Bakowska-Mathews, Jamia Fields and Berglind Thorvaldsdottir paced the Seminole offense with two shots a piece on Sunday.

With the win, Florida State improved to 13-15-6 all-time in the ACC Tournament and 2-1-0 in games played in Tallahassee. The Seminoles have now advanced out of the first round of the tournament for the seventh time in the last nine years and are now 9-7-3 all-time.

Florida State and North Carolina are no strangers to playing against each other in the ACC Tournament as the two schools will meet for the 12th time overall and sixth time in the semifinals. The Seminoles have won three straight over the Tar Heels including a tournament quarterfinal victory over UNC in Chapel Hill in 2011.

"It's been a look time since we played against North Carolina," said Krikorian. "I think everyone clearly understands that Crystal Dunn is among the best players in the country. We are going to have to keep pretty close track of her and Kealia Ohai up front is quite good. But those aren't the only pieces they have, they are a loaded team; they are organized and it's going to be a bit of a war for us. But we are looking forward to it and are excited to continue playing in the ACC Tournament."

FSU Knocks Off UNC In Overtime.

The Seminoles advance to the ACC finals for the seventh time in school history.

CARY, NC - Second-seeded Florida State (17-1-3) scored twice after the 80th minute Friday night inside WakeMed Park including the game-winner in the first overtime to defeat third-seeded North Carolina (17-4-0) 2-1 in the second semifinal of the ACC Women's Soccer Championship.

With the win, the Seminoles advance to their seventh ACC Championship game and first since claiming their first-ever league title in 2011. Florida State will meet fourth-seeded Virginia Tech, who handed top-ranked Virginia its first loss of the season with a 4-2 victory in the first semifinal.

Both goals scored by Florida State were courtesy of an own goal as the Seminoles became the first school to defeat North Carolina four times in a row. It also marked the second time in the last three years that FSU has knocked UNC out of the ACC Tournament as both victories have come in overtime. Florida State now has six wins against North Carolina all-time tying Notre Dame for the most wins against the Tar Heels in their storied history.

"I'm not sure from an aesthetic point of view that any of the purists are walking away thinking that we saw a great technical game, but we saw two very strong heavyweight teams go out there and battle," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "Sometimes it is a matter of going out and competing, fighting and giving yourself a chance."

The game-winner came in the 93rd minute when Jamia Fields sent a cross into the 6-yard box from the right side of the pitch. The ball traveled past two Carolina defenders and then off Satara Murray's leg, who came flying in to cover the far post, and inside the left post for the goal.

Extra time has been nothing new for these two schools has it marked the seventh time in the last 15 meetings that a match involving Florida State and North Carolina has gone to overtime. The series has been closely contested as of late that 14 of the last 18 games including both matches this year have been decided by one goal.

"Overall, I thought once again our group was resilient and was both physically and mental strong through the course of the game," Krikorian said "From a defending side, I thought it was pretty good. We limited their chances and opportunities at our goal. We didn't create enough, but I guess in the end we did create enough."

After a scoreless first half in which both teams combined for just five shots, North Carolina wasted very little cracking the scoreboard to open the second half when Meg Morris put away a shot from the right side of the pitch for her first goal of the season. The senior midfielder scored on a tough angle bending a shot inside the left post from about 15 yards out to give UNC a 1-0 lead.

The goal was the first FSU had given up to the Tar Heels since 2011, while it snapped Kelsey Wys' scoreless streak against UNC at over 330 minutes - a streak spanning four matches. Wys went on to finish the match with four saves.

With time winding down in regulation, Florida State came through with the equalizer in the 87th minute when Wys played a free kick down the middle of the field. Kristin Grubka went up for the header but the ball deflected off the head of a Carolina player and into the net for the goal.

Florida State has now scored 15 times this year after the 80th minute including 13 times when a score has either tied or won the game.

"It is awesome, the fight that we have and what it does most of me is it gives me confidence that we will never doubt for a second that we can't come back and win the game," said FSU senior Kassey Kallman, the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. "Being confident with four minutes, three minutes, two minutes left that your team is still going to score a goal and tie it up is very special and a very nice quality to have. Hopefully we can figure out how to score earlier."

The Seminoles nearly tied the game in the 83rd minute when a shot by Marta Bakowska-Mathews caromed off the crossbar. The ball looked like it crossed the goal line but nothing was called by the sideline official. UNC's Anna Sieloff was there to grab the loose ball ending the threat.

Bakowska-Mathews had another great look earlier in the second half but her header off FSU's first corner kick of the game in the 65th minute was saved off the near post on a header by Cameron Castleberry.

Florida State and North Carolina played to a scoreless first half as the two teams combined for just five shots with two coming from the Seminoles. Two of the three Tar Heel shots went on goal with Wys saving both attempts to keep the match scoreless heading into the locker room.

The first shot of the game came from North Carolina's Alexa Newfield off a free kick from 28 yards out as the shot went right into the bread basket of Wys for the save.

Florida State's first shot came off the foot of Fields in the 17th minute as her blast went into the right side of the netting from about 15 yards out.

The two teams exchanged a shot in the final 11 minutes of the first half as UNC's Castleberry made a nice run between two Seminole players before firing a shot that caromed off a Seminole defender but Wys was there for the save and then pounced on the loose ball to negate the Tar Heel scoring threat.

FSU's second shot of the first half came in the 44th minute off a free kick. Bakowska-Mathews sent the free kick into the box where Anna McClung won possession flicking the ball toward the far post. Hahn collected the pass and one-timed a shot toward the net but it was blocked by a Tar Heel defender.

ACC CHAMPS!!!

The Seminoles secure their second conference championship in the last three years.

CARY, N.C. - Second-seeded Florida State (18-1-3) secured its second ACC championship in the last three years with a 1-0 victory over fourth-seeded Virginia Tech (16-4-2) in the finals of the ACC Women's Soccer Championship Sunday afternoon inside WakeMed Park.

The lone goal of the contest came off the foot of Dagny Brynjarsdottir as the junior midfielder found the back of the net in the 36th minute.

"I think someone crossed it and it bounced off a defender," said Brynjarsdottir on scoring the game-winner. "I kicked it with my right foot in the left corner."

The goal would hold up after the Seminoles turned in a tremendous defensive effort limiting Virginia Tech to just five shots including two on goal. Senior forward Jazmine Reeves, who scored two goals against Virginia in the semifinals on Friday, was held to just two shots including one on goal in 72 minutes of action.

"I thought it was a heck of a final," Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. "Two very good teams going out there competing at a pretty high level. I think both teams were probably carrying a little bit of fatigue into the game from Friday, but for the most part you couldn't see it.

"I think our group and the Virginia Tech group competed at a very high level. At times, I saw some quite nice soccer out there and obviously a nice goal for us. We probably could've made the game a little easier if we had finished some of our other chances, but we seemed to want to keep the crowd into the game. Credit to Virginia Tech. They are a heck of a team and competitive as can be."

With Florida State clinging to a one-goal lead late in the match, Reeves made a nice run down the right side of the pitch before firing a shot toward the near post in the 86th minute. Kelsey Wys was there with a big save, one of two on the evening, deflecting the ball over the crossbar. Virginia Tech could not do anything on the ensuing corner as the Seminoles cleared the ball ending the Hokies' threat.

"I think that always happens when you're up 1-0," said Kallman on Virginia Tech's offensive pressure late in the game. "The other team is going to throw forward a lot of players. That's what we do when we are down; that's why we are successful. We just had to weather the storm, play with the lead and clear balls. It's not the prettiest, but I have a lot of confidence in our goalkeeper and our backline."

The Seminole defensive unit of Kassey Kallman, Kristin Grubka, Megan Campbell, Isabella Schmid, Kirsten Crowley and Wys over the three game stretch in the ACC Tournament was outstanding allowing just one goal in over 270 minutes on the pitch to the likes of Duke, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

With the win on Sunday, Florida State became the third school in ACC history to win the league title on multiple occasions joining North Carolina and Virginia.

The Seminoles also brought their all-time ACC Tournament record to .500 for the first time in school history as FSU improved to 15-15-6. It also marked the first time the Seminoles went through the league tournament with three victories.

Florida State grabbed the early lead thanks to Brynjarsdottir in the 36th minute. The Icelandic native gathered a rebound off a pass into the box from Marta Bakowska-Mathews that deflected off the head of a Hokie defender. Brynjarsdottir collected the ball and weaved between two defenders before slotting a low liner inside the left post for her 10th goal of the season. It was also the third time Brynjarsdottir had scored against the Hokies this year as the junior midfielder scored both goals in a 2-1 victory in Blacksburg back on October 24.

"Sometimes you have good games, sometimes you have average games and sometimes you have bad games," said Brynjarsdottir on the success she had against the Hokies this year. "I had two good games against them."

The Seminoles had a great look early in the first half when Michaela Hahn slid a pass from the right side to a wide open Berglind Thorvaldsdottir in the middle of the 18-yard box. The freshman forward took a split second too long as she dribbled back to her left before firing a shot on goal which was easily saved by Dayle Colpitts.

It wasn't until the 24th when the Hokies finally registered their first shot of the match. A blast from Reeves from just outside the 18-yard box was blocked by the Seminole defense.

FSU finished the match with an 8-5 advantage in shots, while both teams attempted two corners.

Brynjarsdottir finished the match with a game-high four shots including two shots on goal.

Kallman, who was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, was also named to the All-Tournament team along with Brynjarsdottir, Grubka, Schmid and Wys.

Noles Roll In NCAA First Round.

The Seminoles advance to the second round and will face Ole Miss.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Behind two goals from Carson Pickett and a four-point performance from Megan Campbell, top-seeded Florida State (19-1-3) rolled to a 5-0 victory over South Alabama (14-6-3) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Friday night inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The Seminoles scored three first half goals, all in the first 21 minutes, to advance out of the first round of the tournament for the ninth consecutive season.

Pickett put Florida State on top early scoring the first of her two goals on the night in the ninth minute one-timing a cross from Berglind Thorvaldsdottir from about six yards out to give the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage. Her second goal came just a minute and nine seconds into the second half when a cross from Thorvaldsdottir was deflected back toward the top of the box by South Alabama keeper Melissa Drish. Pickett was there for the rebound one-timing a low-liner inside the right post for her first career multi-goal game.

Kassey Kallman registered her first goal of the season in the 16th minute on a header off a Campbell throw-in. The senior defender flicked the ball inside the left post from about 15 yards out to push Florida State's lead to 2-0.

Campbell followed with her first career goal in the 21st minute scoring off a free kick from about 45 yards out. Following a South Alabama foul, Campbell took the free kick and attempted to put the ball on frame to create a scoring chance. But the ball was well struck beating the USA keeper into the upper right corner for the goal and a 3-0 Florida State advantage.

The Seminoles rounded out the scoring in the 90th minute when Nora Kervroedan slotted a low-lining shot inside the left post from about 12 yards out on the right side for her third goal of the season. Marta Bakowska-Mathews and Campbell were credited with the double assist on the play.

Campbell finished the night with a career-high four points on a goal and two assists. The native of Louth, Ireland, who pushed her season-high assist total to nine on the year, recorded her first career multi-assist game in the win.

Kelsey Wys picked up her 12th career victory in the NCAA Tournament following Friday night's victory as the redshirt senior goalkeeper played all 90 minutes and made two saves to earn her 13th shutout of the season.

With the win, Florida State pushed the nation's longest current home unbeaten streak to 32 games (31-0-1), while improving its NCAA Tournament record to 39-12-2 all-time.

FSU also remained unbeaten all-time in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament pushing its record to 13-0-1.

FSU Downs Ole Miss In NCAA Second Round.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored twice to move the Seminoles into the third round for the ninth straight year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-seeded Florida State (20-1-3) registered two goals from Dagny Brynjarsdottir and a pair of assists from Jamia Fields as the Seminoles defeated No. 22 Ole Miss (16-6-2) 3-1 Thursday night inside the Seminole Soccer Complex in second round action of the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship.

The Seminoles maintained a two-goal advantage after the first 45 minutes of play thanks to goals by Brynjarsdottir and Isabella Schmid. An Ole Miss goal by Gretchen Harknett in the 70th minute cut the deficit in half but Brynjarsdottir sealed the victory for Florida State in the 78th minute on her second goal of the evening to push FSU's lead back to two.

With the win, Florida State advances to the third round for the ninth year in a row and 12th time overall. The Seminoles will face Colorado, who defeated No. 19 BYU 2-1, on Saturday, November 23 at 12 noon.

Brynjarsdottir gave the Seminoles a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute putting away a loose ball off a deflected shot from Fields. Fields blasted a shot from just inside the 18-yard box that caromed off a Rebel defender. The ball went right to a wide open Brynjarsdottir, who one-timed the deflection inside the right post from about 12 yards out for the goal.

The Seminoles added to their lead right before the half on a great combination play from Schmid and Fields. Following an Ole Miss corner kick, Schmid gathered the ball and made a long run down the middle of the field before finding Fields streaking down the right side of the pitch. Fields then sent a beautiful low lining cross across the box where Schmid timed her run perfectly with a sliding finish to the far post for her second goal of the season.

The assist from Fields was her second of the evening marking her fourth multi-assist game of her career and second of the season.

Ole Miss cut the deficit in half in the 70th minute on a great shot from Harknett. The Rebel defender sent a well struck ball just beyond the reach of Seminole keeper Kelsey Wys that found its way inside the upper left corner for her first collegiate goal.

Brynjarsdottir thwarted any kind of momentum that the Rebels were riding just over seven minutes later when the Icelandic native put away a header inside the left post off a cross from Megan Campbell on the left side to give the Seminoles a 3-1 lead.

It marked Brynjarsdottir's third multi-goal game of the season while pushing her team leading goal total to 12 on the year. Campbell also entered the Seminole record books with her assist on Thursday night becoming just the seventh player in school history to register 10 or more assists in a season.

Florida State had a great scoring chance in the sixth minute of play on two nice efforts from Carson Pickett. The sophomore midfielder struck a ball off the cross bar from about 16 yards out and then seconds later her low liner toward the left post was saved by a diving Kelly McCormick.

Wys, who played all 90 minutes between the posts, finished the night with a one save. And it was a big save that came early in the 17th minute on a defensive miscue by the Seminoles. Olivia Harrison intercepted a pass from inside the 18-yard box and tried to sneak a shot inside the near post, but Wys was there for the save to keep the game knotted at zero.

Florida State's win Thursday night pushed its home unbeaten streak to 33 games (32-0-1) - the longest active streak in the nation, while FSU's 20 wins on the year ties a school record - matched just twice before (2005 & 2012) - as all three times have come under the direction of head coach Mark Krikorian.

Noles Roll Past Colorado.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scores two goals for the second straight match as FSU advances to the Elite Eight for the ninth year in a row.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Nine and counting! Top-seeded Florida State (21-1-3) is headed back to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship for the ninth year in a row, extending the nation's longest active streak, with a 4-0 victory over Colorado (14-7-2) Saturday afternoon inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored a pair of goals for the second straight match and Michaela Hahn tied a career-high with three points on a goal and an assist as the Seminoles set a school record with their 21st victory of the season following Saturday's win over Colorado.

Florida State scored early and often on Saturday as all three first half goals came within the first 15 minutes of play including two off the head of Brynjarsdottir in the first seven minutes. The two-goal effort for the junior midfielder was her fourth multi-goal game of the season pushing her team leading goal total to 14 on the year. The Icelandic native now has five goals in the last four contests to pace the Seminoles.

While Florida State's offensive attack was clicking on all cylinders in the third round, so was its defense as the Seminoles held the Buffaloes to just four shots including just one shot on goal which came in the 38th minute. The shutout was FSU's 14th of the season and second in the NCAA Tournament. Through the first three postseason games, the Seminoles have outscored the opposition 12-1.

Florida State wasted little time cracking the scoreboard on Saturday when Brynjarsdottir scored the fastest goal of the season just a minute and 19 seconds into the start of the match to give the Seminoles an early 1-0 lead. Hahn sent a beautiful cross from the left side of the 18-yard box to the far post where Brynjarsdottir headed the ball in for her first goal of the afternoon.

The Seminoles quickly added to their lead in the seventh minute on Brynjarsdottir's second goal of the game. This time Brynjarsdottir's header caromed off the left post then off the leg of Colorado keeper Annie Brunner and into the net for the goal. Jamia Fields and Isabella Schmid were credited with assists on the play.

FSU pushed its lead to 3-0 after just 15 minutes thanks to another header but this time from Kristin Grubka. The goal came off a free kick delivery from Megan Campbell just beyond midfield. Grubka out jumped the competition on the play flicking the ball inside the left post from about 16 yards out for her third goal of the season.

The final tally of the afternoon came in the 70th minute when Brunner could not cradle a long blast off the foot of Hahn which trickled into the back of the net for her second goal of the season. Kassey Kallman was credited with an assist on the play, her first of the season.

With the win, Florida State extended the nation's longest current home unbeaten streak to 34-games (33-0-1) as the Seminoles improved to 15-0-1 inside the friendly confines of the Seminole Soccer Complex in 2013.

FSU Headed Back to College Cup.

The Seminoles advance to their seventh national semifinal and third in a row.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-seeded Florida State (22-1-3) broke open a one-goal first half lead scoring three times in the second half to defeat Boston College (13-10-1) 4-0 Friday afternoon in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.

With the win, the Seminoles advance to their third straight College Cup and seventh all-time. Florida State will now face Virginia Tech in the national semifinals on Friday, December 6 at WakeMed Park in Cary, N.C. The Hokies defeated Duke 3-0 on Friday in Blacksburg. It will mark the third meeting between the two schools this year as the Seminoles have won both contests including a 1-0 victory in the ACC championship game back on November 10 in Cary.

In Friday's quarterfinal, Marta Bakowska-Mathews had a career afternoon as she led all players with five points on two goals and an assist. The junior midfielder assisted on the game's first goal in the first half before scoring the third and fourth goals of the match to seal the victory. It marked Bakowska-Mathews' second two-goal effort of the season with her first coming against Notre Dame in the regular season finale back on October 31.

The Seminoles put forth a tremendous defensive effort on Friday holding the Eagles to just four shots including two on goal. Boston College entered the NCAA Quarterfinals outscoring the opposition 10-2 through the first three rounds.

FSU's backline of Kassey Kallman, Kristin Grubka, Isabella Schmid, Megan Campbell and Kirsten Crowley held BC's forward trio of McKenzie Meehan, Hayley Dowd and Stephanie McCaffrey to just one shot. And that lone shot didn't come until the 88th minute when McCaffrey's shot from just outside the 18-yard box was blocked.

Kelsey Wys made both saves, one in each half, in 90 minutes of play as the senior goalkeeper collected her 15th shutout of the season.

The win put the finishing touches on another unbeaten home record as the Seminoles finished 2013 16-0-1 inside the friendly confines of the Seminole Soccer Complex. It marked the second straight year that FSU has not lost a match at home pushing its home unbeaten streak to 35 games (34-0-1) - the longest active streak in the nation.

Kallman broke the scoreless tie in the 36th minute finishing the play with a header inside the left post from about six yards out for her second goal of the season. The scoring play began when Campbell sent a cross inside the box to the head of Bakowska-Mathews, who flicked the ball toward the goal. Kallman won possession of the free ball finishing the play with a header for her second goal of the postseason. The goal also gave the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage into the locker room.

In the second half, the Seminoles broke the match open with three goals as the first came off the foot of Michaela Hahn. Hahn took a pass from Nickolette Driesse and drilled a shot into the upper left corner from about 20 yards out for her third goal of the season.

Bakowska-Mathews gave Florida State a 3-0 lead finishing a low-lining cross from the right side by Dagny Brynjarsdottir in the 70th minute. BC keeper Alex Johnson had come out to defend the ball from Brynjarsdottir leaving the left side of the goal wide open for Bakowska-Mathews. Driesse found Brynjarsdottir open down on the right side to earn her second assist of the game and first career multi-assist game.

Less than two minutes later, the Seminoles added their fourth goal of the afternoon on a penalty kick conversion by Bakowska-Mathews. Brynjarsdottir was fouled from behind inside the 18-yard box leading to the goal by the English native.

Brynjarsdottir led all players with four shots in the match, while Bakowska-Mathews and Carson Pickett both finished with three.

Florida State's seventh trip to the College Cup is tied for the sixth most appearances in NCAA history. The Seminoles become just the third school to make three consecutive appearances in the national semifinals on two separate occasions.

CARY, NC - Friday's first national semifinal at the 2013 Women's College Cup had everything one could ask for and more as the packed crowd inside WakeMed Park was treated to a very entertaining game by two of the nation's very best.

In the end, it was Florida State's (23-1-3) Jamia Fields that provided the game-winning heroics scoring the goal of the match in the 83rd minute to break a 2-2 tie. The junior midfielder blasted a shot from the right side of the pitch from about 22 yards out that caromed off the far post, then off the back of Virginia Tech goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts and into the net to give the Seminoles a 3-2 advantage.

The goal by Fields in the 83rd minute marked the 17th time this year that Florida State has scored a goal after the 80th minute including the 14th time that a goal has either tied the match or resulted in a game-winner.

The Hokies (19-5-3) would not go quietly as a header by Jazmine Reeves clanked off the crossbar with just a minute and five seconds left in regulation. The ball hung around in the box for a couple seconds before the Seminoles were rewarded a goal kick that sealed the victory.

With the win, Florida State advances to the national championship game on Sunday, December 8 where the Seminoles will face the winner of the second national semifinal that features UCLA and Virginia. It marks FSU's second trip to the national finals and first since 2007.

Fields found a great time to register her first career multi-goal game as the Alta Loma, Calif., native gave the Noles their first lead of the match in the 57th minute breaking a 1-1 tie with her first goal of the match.

The scoring play started when Megan Campbell sent a long throw-in into FSU's attacking third, behind the Hokie defense and right to Dagny Brynjarsdottir, who timed her run perfectly to get to the ball. The Icelandic native dribbled to the end line before sending a beautiful low-lining cross to a streaking Fields, who one-timed her shot inside the right post for the goal.

A defensive miscue by the Seminoles almost led to the equalizer in the 67th minute as the ball went right to Reeves. The senior forward made a strong dribble down the middle of the field before sending a low lining shot from about 18 yards out that went past a diving Kelsey Wys and off the far post. The ball took a friendly bounce off the post going right back to Wys, who rolled over and secured the ball ending the threat.

The Hokies would tie the match in the 79th minute on goal by Ashley Meier. The score came off a counter following a hard run by Isabella Schmid down the middle of the field. Taylor Antolino made a nice play to steal the ball from Schmid to amount an attack for the Hokies. Ashley Manning received the ball from Antolino before finding Meier running down the left side of the pitch. Meier then slotted a low-lining shot inside the near post to even the match at 2-2.

After a scoreless 31 minutes of play, Virginia Tech opened the scoring in the first semifinal when Manning sent a low liner past a diving Wys and inside the left post for her fifth goal of the season in the 32nd minute.

The Seminoles were able to tie the match at one right before the half taking advantage of a free kick opportunity deep inside FSU's attacking third following a Hokie foul. On the restart, Marta Bakowska-Mathews sent a beautiful bending cross toward the near post where Kristin Grubka timed her run beautifully with a diving header that found the inside of the left post for her fourth goal of the season.

Florida State outshot Virginia Tech 9-8 for the match, while the Hokies held the advantage in corner kicks at 4-2. Both keepers finished with two saves.

Berglind Thorvaldsdottir led the Seminoles with three shots on Friday night, while Fields, Brynjarsdottir and Grubka all finished with two shots each. Meier paced the Hokies with a team-high three shots in defeat.

Florida State Falls to UCLA In Overtime, 1-0.

It was the first title game decided in overtime since 2002.

CARY, NC -- Kodi Lavrusky gave UCLA its first NCAA women's soccer title Sunday, scoring in the 97th minute to lift the Bruins past Florida State 1-0 in overtime in cold and rainy conditions.

Making a run from the back, Megan Oyster brought the ball down the left side of the field before crossing over to the middle. She slipped a pass in front of the goal to Lavrusky, who left-footed the ball into the bottom right corner of the net past diving goalkeeper Kelsey Wys.

It was the first title game decided in overtime since 2002.

The Bruins (22-1-3) finished the season with a 21-game unbeaten streak. They had 15 shutouts during that span, including five of six matches in the NCAA tournament.

Florida State (23-2-3) had its nine-game winning streak snapped.

UCLA outshot Florida State 15-5 in regulation and controlled the run of play in each half. Taylor Smith had the best two chances at a goal for the Bruins in regulation. She blasted a shot off the crossbar in the 30th minute and hit the left post just before halftime.

The second opportunity was especially dangerous. Caprice Dydasco blasted a shot that Wys saved. After a failed clearance attempt by Florida State, the rebound ended up at Smith's feet. She had the left side of the net open from about 12 yards away, but her left-footed shot hit the frame.

UCLA and Florida State have reached the College Cup more than any other school since 2003, making eight and seven appearances, respectively. But the teams were playing for just the second time, with the Bruins winning the first meeting 4-0 in the 2005 NCAA semifinals.

The temperature on the rain-soaked field was 35 degrees when the game began, more than 40 degrees colder than the high temperature Friday for the semifinals. Players opted for various combinations of long sleeves, gloves and headbands in the cold rain.
