Deyna Castellanos' Hat Trick Carries Noles Over UNCG.
The sophomore forward tallied her first career hat trick in FSU's 3-0 win against UNC Greensboro.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Nearly halfway to her seven-goal output from the entirety of the 2016 season that saw her earn NSCAA All-Region First Team and All-ACC Second Team honors, sophomore Deyna Castellanos produced the first hat trick of her Seminole career, scoring all three goals in a 3-0 victory by No. 15/4 Florida State (1-0-0) over UNC Greensboro (0-1-0) on Friday night.

It is the first hat trick by a Florida State soccer player since Marta Bakowska-Mathews on September 14, 2014 versus Stetson.

The win marked the 10th-straight season-opening victory for the Noles and extended the program's home unbeaten streak to 34 matches. FSU is 33-0-1 at the Seminole Soccer Complex, dating back to 2014, outscoring its opponents 102-6 over that span.

"Overall, I think it was pretty good," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "Certainly, in the second half Greensboro created a couple of headaches for us. But fortunately, we were able to react and eliminate the chances in the end. Overall, for 90 minutes and playing an awful lot of players and getting a lot of looks from a lot of kids, it was pretty good."

The Seminoles started out with a strong attack and nearly opened the scoring in the fifth minute as a cross by junior Megan Connolly found redshirt freshman Clara Robbins in the box for header that beat UNCG goalkeeper Chloe Buehler, but was kept off the line by a Spartan defender to keep the match square at 0-0.

Florida State did get on the board in the 13th minute as junior Olivia Bergau sent a long cross from the defensive back line up to freshman Emily Madril down the left side. She worked to send a ball in front of the net for Castellanos to put away for the first goal of the game.

Madril and Castellanos paired up six minutes later for goal number two on a similar play. The freshman midfielder was able to find Castellanos on a run through the box and played a great ball to her feet and the sophomore redirected it behind the keeper for the goal.

The Noles kept up the pressure in the first half, tallying nine corner kicks in the opening 45 minutes, and nearly made it 3-0 at the intermission when a Connolly corner in the 44th minute bounced around the box and found Dallas Dorosy near the penalty spot. The junior took a shot that bounced off the crossbar and was safely cleared.

UNCG got their best chance of the match early in the second half, as Quiqui Hita was able to take the ball down the right side before sending a cross into the six-yard box for a sprinting Heida Vidarsdottir toward the near post. The shot stayed wide of the post to keep the Spartans off the board.

Connolly continued to look for her first goal of the game, taking five shots in the first 20 minutes of the second half, four of which missed by an estimated 10 feet combined, including one just over the crossbar in the 56th minute.

A foul by UNCG on freshman Gloriana Villalobos about 35 yards from the goal in the 73rd minute set up a free kick by Robbins to junior Natalia Kuikka in the penalty box, who flicked a header over the goalkeeper but a team save by defender Emily Jensen kept the ball out of the net.

The Noles closed out the scoring in the 81st minute, as senior Emma Koivisto was taken down in the penalty box, allowing Castellanos to convert the PK for the 3-0 final score.

Castellanos nearly matched the school record of four goals in a game in the 87th minute, as her chip shot from 20 yards at the top of the box ricocheted off the crossbar and was cleared away.

For the game, the Noles outshot the Spartans 29-4, including 11-0 in shots on goal. FSU held a 12-2 advantage in corner kicks as well.

Megan Connolly Scores Twice In Win Over South Alabama.
The junior records the second multi-goal game of her career as Florida State tops South Alabama, 2-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Extending its home unbeaten streak to 35 matches, No. 15/4 Florida State (2-0-0) not only battled a tough South Alabama team but also a heat index that was well above 100 degrees for most of the match, earning a 2-1 victory over the Jaguars (0-2-0) on Sunday afternoon at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Junior midfielder Megan Connolly scored both Seminole goals on the afternoon for the second multi-goal match of her career, matching her output against UCF on September 10, 2015.

The South Alabama goal in the second half snapped an opponent's streak of 516:52 minutes without scoring at the Seminole Soccer Complex, dating back to a goal by Virginia's Veronica Latsko on September 26, 2016.

"Sometimes you have to go out and just grind it out, and I think that's what we ended up doing today," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought we were fairly comfortable in a lot of different parts of the game, but we weren't dangerous enough. Credit to South Alabama, they had a good, organized game plan and were able to slow the tempo down in our play. In the end, we scored a couple of goals and were able to get the result."

Florida State had the majority of possession in the early going, and junior Kaycie Tillman put the first FSU shot on goal in the 13th minute that was saved by USA's Justice Stanford.

Connolly opened the scoring about two minutes later as freshman Bella Dorosy crossed a ball from the left into the box for Tillman, who played it back for Connolly to blast under the crossbar for a quick 1-0 lead.

Freshman Adrienne Richardson had a solid shot in the 20th minute of a free kick from Connolly that bounced around the penalty box, but the ball sailed just wide of the goal.

Senior Emma Koivisto started the second scoring chance for the Noles in the 39th minute playing a ball down the right side for Emily Madril. The freshman brought the ball back into the box before it crossed the end line toward sophomore Deyna Castellanos. The forward allowed the ball to slide by her for a wide-open Connolly to finish in the back of the net for a 2-0 Seminole lead.

Redshirt freshman Clara Robbins nearly made it 3-0 FSU before intermission as Madril sent the ball into the penalty box and Robbins collected it with her first touch before her shot required a diving save to keep it out of the net, as it was deflected away for a corner.

In the second half, South Alabama earned its first scoring chance in the 52nd minute as a foul just outside the penalty box set up a free kick for Chelsea Followwell. She bent the ball around the Seminole wall, but it was saved by FSU goalkeeper Cassie Miller.

The Jaguars kept up the pressure, earning three shots and a corner over the next three minutes before cutting the FSU lead to 2-1 at 59:35 as Followwell picked off a loose ball near midfield, dribbled in and scored on a shot from 20 yards.

The Noles continued to look for goal number three and had a great chance by Dorosy in the 63rd minute as freshman Gabby Carle crossed a ball into the box that was blocked out by the USA defense, but the ball went right to Dorosy for a blast that was directly to the keeper.

A pair of FSU freshman almost scored in the 72nd minute as Madril drove the ball down the left side before finding Madisyn Pezzino near the penalty spot. The midfielder's shot got past the keeper but bounced off the near post.

The final 10 minutes of the match were very physical, with South Alabama's Hanna Godfrey earning a yellow card at 84:10 on a foul just outside the penalty box. Castellanos took the free kick for FSU, but her shot was wide of the goal. The Jaguar bench received another yellow as the ball was being put back into play.

A red card was shown to USA's Charde Hannah at 87:49 as she elbowed FSU's Koivisto as the two worked for position on a goal kick and was ejected from the match.

The Noles held possession for the final three minutes to hold on for the win. Overall, FSU outshot USA 21-7 and held a 5-1 advantage in corners.

FLORIDA STATE 4, SAMFORD 2
08/24/2017, BIRMINGHAM, AL

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 6/4 Florida State Tops Samford, 4-2.
The Seminoles earn their first road win of the year on Thursday night.

BIRMINGHAM, AL - Getting four goals from four different players, No. 6/4 Florida State (3-0-0) earned a 4-2 win on the road at Samford (0-3-0) on Thursday night in front of 921 fans at the Samford Track and Soccer Complex.

"Samford had a great game plan and were very organized and disciplined," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "They have a really special player and a lot of other players that are really good too, but I thought that we came out and scored the goal early, but lost our way a bit after that. Part of that of course is credit to the way Samford played. It is still nice to go on the road and win the game, but giving up a couple of goals is something we'll certainly be concerned with."

Florida State jumped out to an early lead with a goal in the third minute as freshman Adrienne Richardson took the ball into box down the left side and found Megan Connolly to finish from 10 yards for her third goal of the season.

Samford quickly tied up match in the 10th minute as a ball from Taylor Meneide seemed destined to roll over the end line on the right, but forward Jermaine Seoposenwe brought it back into the box for Lexi Orman to put into the net to square the match at 1-1.

The Noles continued to put pressure on through the rest of the first half, as shots by Connolly, Bella Dorosy and Clara Robbins all were low and on frame, but quality saves by Samford's Anna Maddox kept the match at 1-1 after the first 45 minutes.

Samford had the first quality scoring chance of the second half, as Seoposenwe made a breakaway in the 54th minute on a counterattack down the right side, but sophomore Taylor Hallmon recovered and made a sliding block inside the six-yard box to deflect the ball away for a corner.

Junior Natalia Kuikka had a header go just wide of the net in the 58th minute, finding the end of a Connolly free kick, but couldn't get it on the frame.

Deyna Castellanos gave the Seminoles a 2-1 lead at 64:36 as she collected a loose ball in the penalty box and drove a shot from the right just inside the left post for her fourth goal of the season.

Freshman Gloriana Villalobos nearly made it 3-1 FSU in the 71st minute, as her shot from 20 yards bounced off the crossbar before being secured by the Samford keeper.

Villalobos was fouled in the penalty box by Samford's Allie Lourie less than a minute later, and Kuikka converted the PK to extend the Seminole advantage to 3-1 at 71:25.

Richardson set up the final scoring chance for Florida State in the 89th minute, dropping ball off for Robbins to shoot from 20 yards. Samford's Maddox made the low save, but couldn't handle the rebound and junior Dallas Dorosy finished the play with her first goal of the season.

Samford managed one final goal at 89:33 off the foot of Grace Packer for the final score of 4-2.

For the game, Florida State outshot Samford 20-7, including 12-3 in shots on goal. The Seminoles played with five freshmen and six underclassmen for the final 15 minutes as 14 different Seminoles played at least 30 minutes tonight.

"I thought today our freshmen played like freshmen," added Krikorian. "And I don't think that's the standard we need from them. Going forward, they're going to have to improve and develop if we are going to be a legitimate team and a contender later in the season. We learned some lessons today and hopefully we'll get better."

08/27/2017, TUSCALOOSA, AL

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State Falls at Alabama, 1-0.
The Seminoles are defeated for the first time this season on Sunday afternoon.

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Unable to find the equalizer in the second half after Alabama scored the game's only goal at 54:35, No. 6/4 Florida State (3-1-0) fell for the first time in 2017 as the Seminoles were defeated 1-0 by Alabama (3-1-0) on Sunday afternoon at the Alabama Soccer Stadium.

"I thought today that the better team won," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "Alabama came out with a very good game plan, but more importantly, they came out committed to compete. And I don't know that we competed at the best level that we can. If this is the best level that we are going to play at, or the most that we are going to compete, we're going to have a few more bumps along the road.

"All of the players and all of the staff will go back and reevaluate and try to come back and be a better version of ourselves. Today, I don't think it was good enough for where we want our goals and aspirations to be."

Alabama was very physical in the scoreless opening first 45 minutes, outshooting the Noles 9-3, but also committing 11 fouls, including a yellow card for Chatham DeProspo in the 35th minute.

FSU goalkeeper Cassie Miller made five saves in the first half, coming off her line to secure possession 15 yards out on a shot by Casey Wertz in the 16th minute. She made three other saves in the final three minutes of the half as the Tide controlled possession and earned a corner.

The Seminoles had the best scoring chance of either team in the first half, as Emily Madril crossed a ball from the left for Deyna Castellanos at the near post in the 40th minute. The sophomore headed the ball to the back post for Bella Dorosy who put a header on frame, but Alabama defender Kayla Mouton kept it out of the net with a defensive team save.

The Tide scored the only goal of the match in the 55th minute as Wertz got on the end of a through ball down the left side and sent a pass back to Taylor Morgan at the top of the box. A one-timed shot beat FSU's Miller to give the Tide the lead.

Florida State continued to fight to try and even the match and junior Megan Connolly was involved in three quality chances in the middle of the second half. Madril found her near the penalty spot in the 58th minute, but her well-struck ball was stopped by Alabama goalkeeper Kat Stratton.

In the 63rd minute, Stratton punched out a cross attempt that Connolly collected, but her shot was wide of the goal. And in the 73rd minute, Gabby Carle sent a ball across the box from the left, and Connolly shot went off the post.

Castellanos had the last shot for the Noles in the 87th minute as her header off the foot of Carle sailed just wide of the near post.

Florida State was able to earn a corner in the final seconds as Gloriana Villalobos took the ball deep into the box, but time expired before the ball could be sent toward the goal.

Overall, FSU lead in shots 15-14, and 9-5 in saves as Miller earned a career high eight saves. Alabama held the advantage in corner kicks, 3-2, as well as in fouls 13-9.

FSU Soccer Shuts Out Kentucky.
The No. 15 Seminoles post a 4-0 victory over the Wildcats on Sunday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Getting a pair of two-goal performances from sophomore Deyna Castellanos and freshman Madisyn Pezzino, No. 15/8 Florida State (4-1-0) posted a 4-0 victory over Kentucky (2-4-0) on Sunday afternoon in front of 1,162 fans at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The shutout also increases redshirt senior goalkeeper Cassie Miller's career total to 42, moving her into sole possession of 11th place on the NCAA all-time list.

"I thought that our collective defending was pretty good and we were able to get high and put some pressure on them," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "Overall, I think it was a good, solid performance from start to finish. We minimized their chances at our goal and created four goals and probably a few more that we could have had.

"Kentucky came in here and battled very hard. They came down after playing on Friday night in a very tight game against Louisville, which is a big rivalry game for them. They represented themselves very well and I am quite impressed with the group we just played."

The Seminoles started the match aggressively, getting shots from Natalia Kuikka, Emily Madril and Deyna Castellanos in the opening 10 minutes, but managed just one on goal, which was saved by UK goalkeeper Evangeline Soucie.

Florida State continued the pressure, but struggled to find the final pass in the first half for quality scoring opportunities with only one shot from the 20th to the 44th minute.

Castellanos broke the stalemate as time nearly expired in the first half, taking a ball off the UK defense near the midfield and dribbling in for a shot from the top of the box at 44:53 to give the Noles a 1-0 lead heading into the intermission.

Coming out for the second half, Kentucky made a goalkeeping change as a collision with Soucie prompted her to come out due to the concussion protocol, enabling Sophie Babo to earn her first-ever goalkeeping appearance.

The Noles tested Babo early and often in the second half including Castellanos recording her sixth goal of the season in the 48th minute, collecting a ball near the penalty spot from Megan Connolly, turning her defender and burying it in the back of the net for a 2-0 Seminole lead.

FSU put five more shots on goal over the next eight minutes, including shots from Adrienne Richardson, Gabby Carle and Gloriana Villalobos, but Kentucky's Babo was able to secure them all.

Clara Robbins nearly scored her first collegiate goal in the 71st minute as a long ball from Kuikka was tracked down at the top of the box by the redshirt freshman, who headed it over the UK keeper and it was bouncing toward the goal before Kelly Novak made a defensive team save by kicking the ball over the goal for a corner to preserve the 2-0 score.

Pezzino wrapped up the scoring for the Seminoles with late goals in the 86th and 88th minutes. The first scoring play started with combination passing on the right side with Ari Hudson and Dallas Dorosy, who found Pezzino near the top of the six-yard box. The freshman from Grand Island, New York controlled the ball and fired it into the net for her first collegiate goal.

The second chance came two minutes later as Bella Dorosy slipped a ball behind the UK backline on the left side and Pezzino slotted a shot inside the near post to beat Babo and extend the Seminole lead to 4-0.

For the game, FSU outshot Kentucky 27-1, with the only Wildcat shot following a free kick in the 63rd minute off the foot of Tanya Samarzich that was well high of the goal.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Deyna's Five-Point Performance Paces FSU In Win Over Troy.
The sophomore scored two goals and added an assist in FSU's 4-1 win over Troy on Wednesday afternoon.

TROY, AL - Behind a five-point performance by sophomore Deyna Castellanos on two goals and an assist, No. 16 Florida State (5-1-0) earned a 4-1 win over Troy (2-5-2) on Wednesday at the Troy Soccer Complex.

It marked Castellanos' third multi-goal game of the season and increased her team and ACC lead in points (17) and goals (8).

"For the most part, it was good to get back on the field," said head coach Mark Krikorian. "It's been a very interesting number of days that we've had. Coming here, and the hospitality that Troy has shown is wonderful and we're thankful that they were able to put his game together at the last minute.

"I think our kids came out and competed very favorably and [Troy head coach] Ged [O'Connor] and [associate head coach] Joe [Connon] and the group at Troy do a great job and are such a good team. We feel good to get out of here with the win and are ready to be back in Tallahassee."

Florida State controlled possession in the early going, taking four shots and earning two corners in the first seven minutes, but couldn't find the back of the net. However, the only quality offensive possession in the first half for Troy resulted in the match's first goal.

The Trojans earned a corner in the 13th minute and the service from Kiersten Edland found Nicole Strahl in the middle of the six-yard box amongst a large group of FSU and Troy players and Strahl was able to head it into the net for a 1-0 lead.

The Seminoles quickly tied the match off the foot of Castellanos as the sophomore received a ball in the left side of the penalty area from Clara Robbins, spun around her defender and struck the ball inside the far post in the 16th minute.

Olivia Bergau gave Florida State the lead less than four minutes later as her run on the left side was found by Gloriana Villalobos, despite deflecting off a couple of defenders, and the junior was able to score her first goal of the year to make it 2-1 FSU.

Adrienne Richardson made it 3-1 Seminoles in the 20th minute, as she used a nice controlling touch near midfield to start a 2v2 breakaway with Castellanos. Passing forward to her Venezuelan teammate, Richardson made a run on the right and Castellanos gave a great assist for the freshman to score her first collegiate goal.

The second half was a low-scoring affair as neither team was able to produce significant offensive chances. The Seminoles held the ball for the bulk of the final 45 minutes and made runs into the box and down the sides, but couldn't connect the final pass.

Castellanos closed out the scoring in the 89th minute, connecting on a ball from Robbins again as the defender sent a long ball from the FSU back line that bounced behind the Troy defense about 30 yards from the goal. The sophomore forward was able to get on the end of it and chipped it over the Troy goalkeeper's head to create the 4-1 final score.

Overall, FSU outshot Troy, 17-2, and held an advantage in corners at 9-2.

NORTH CAROLINA 1, FLORIDA STATE 0
09/17/2017, TALLAHASSEE, FL

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Fall 1-0 To No. 10 North Carolina.
No. 16 Florida State is shutout, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon by the Tar Heels.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Battling a physical, top-10 team the Seminole Soccer Complex, No. 16 Florida State (5-2-0, 0-1-0 ACC) came up just short in its ACC home opener, falling to No. 10 North Carolina (5-2-0, 1-0-0 ACC) by a score of 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The loss snapped Florida State's 36-game home unbeaten streak, which was the second-longest streak in program history. It is just the second loss at home for the Seminoles in their last 75 matches, as FSU has posted a home record of 70-2-3 since October 16, 2011.

"Overall, I think our kids executed the gameplan very well," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "Carolina had a few good chances, and most of their chances came toward the end of the game as we were trying to push forward for the goal. But credit to UNC, they are a great program and have been forever and will continue to be. I am glad our kids came out and competed favorably throughout the course of the match and created a few really good chances and a few other half chances, but we weren't good enough to score today."

The Noles has a strong scoring chance in the opening minute, as a ball played back to FSU goalkeeper Cassie Miller was driven beyond the midfield circle and the UNC back line for Dallas Dorosy. The junior was able to take the ball into the top of the box, but her shot was saved away by UNC keeper Samantha Leshnak.

It was a physical and technical match between the two teams in the midfield throughout the first half, as neither side would allow significant chances or opportunities to even take a shot as there were multiple spans of over 10 minutes during the first half where neither UNC or FSU was able to record a shot.

Deyna Castellanos nearly matched her performance against Kentucky with a goal in the closing minute of the first half, collecting a ball on the right side and taking a shot at 44:28 that was saved by UNC's Leshnak as the match remained tied at 0-0 heading into halftime.

The action got started early in the second half with FSU's Emily Madril finding Castellanos near the penalty spot in the 47th minute, but solid defending by the UNC backline kept her from getting a clean shot off.

North Carolina took the first shot of the second half as Bridgette Andrzejewski got behind the Seminole defense on the right side, but Miller made a solid save at the near post in the 49th minute.

The Noles and Tar Heels traded free kicks from 30 yards in the 53rd and 55th minutes, but neither shot was on frame.

North Carolina scored the match's only goal in the 58th minute after Dorian Bailey's shot was blocked away for a corner. Boyles sent the corner kick into the six-yard box and Abby Elinsky headed it back for Bailey to head over the outstretched arms of FSU's Miller and into the net for the 1-0 lead.

The Seminoles nearly found the equalizer on a pair of headers, but both Dorosy's shot in the 61st minute and Megan Connolly's in the 64th minute were secured on quality saves by UNC's Leshnak.

Miller made two diving saves as the second half continued to keep the score at 1-0. She leaped to her right to deflect away a shot from Alea Hyatt in the 65th minute and dove to her left to punch away a shot by Madison Schultz in the 77th minute.

The final quality chance for the Noles came in the 78th minute, as a counterattack following a UNC corner by Gabby Carle led to Castellanos with the ball outside the penalty box on the right side. The sophomore forward worked to create space and took a shot from 20 yards that just skipped over the crossbar.

The loss is the first in an ACC-opener for Florida State since a 2-0 defeat at Wake Forest in 2011. Overall, the Noles are 10-6-1 in their last 17 matches to open the conference season.

FLORIDA STATE 2, LOUISVILLE 1
09/21/2017, LOUISVILLE, KY

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Top Cardinals, 2-1.
No. 23 Florida State earns a road ACC win over Louisville on Thursday night.

LOUISVILLE, KY - Improving to 6-0-0 all-time in the series, the Seminoles earned their first ACC win of the season as No. 23 Florida State (6-2-0, 1-1-0 ACC) topped Louisville (6-4-0, 0-2-0 ACC) by a score of 2-1 on Thursday night at Lynn Stadium.

The win increased head coach Mark Krikorian's collegiate coaching record to 399-100-32, in his 13th season for FSU after five years at Hartford (1996-2000) as well as six years and two National Championships at Franklin Pierce (1990-1995).

It was the first goal allowed by Florida State in the series with Louisville in 475:19 of match time, dating back to a first-half goal in 2001. The Noles had posted four consecutive shutouts over the Cardinals, including three since Louisville joined the ACC in 2014.

"I thought we really had to grind it out today," said Krikorian. "There was some good soccer at times, but often it was more about the physical battle and competing. I think both us and Louisville went out and fought a hard fight and a good fight and fortunately for us, we were able to score two goals and win the game."

The match started off slowly for both teams as it took until the 13th minute for the first shot to come from either team.

The Noles worked to get their first corner of the match as freshman Emily Madril dribbled into the penalty area from the right side and deflected the ball off a UofL defender. The Seminole corner was possessed and ended up on the foot of Gabby Carle on the left side.

The freshman worked around her defender and took a shot near the end line that was unable to be caught by Louisville goalkeeper Gabrielle Kouzelos. The rebound fell right in front of Dallas Dorosy to easily put into the net for her second goal of the season in the 20th minute.

A foul by Louisville's Gabrielle Vincent on FSU's Gloriana Villalobos about 30 yards from the goal earned the Cardinal defender a yellow card and set up the second Seminole goal of the night in the 28th minute. Sophomore Deyna Castellanos took the free kick and buried it inside the far post for her ninth goal of the season, extending her ACC lead in the category.

The second half started much like the first, with both teams fighting for chances and not allowing the other to take a shot until the 55th minute.

That would be the only shot taken by either side until Louisville cut the lead to 2-1 in the 70th minute as a Seminole foul just outside the penalty area set up a free kick from 20 yards. Midfielder Emina Ekic drove her shot around the wall and into the net for her third goal of the season.

Castellanos nearly scored her second goal of the game on a corner kick in the 73rd minute, bending the shot up toward the corner of the far post, but it was punched away by UofL's Kouzelos.

Florida State withstood a significant final push, as Louisville took several free kicks in the Seminole half of the field in the last 10 minutes, as well as a late corner, but the Noles were able to hold on for the 2-1 win.

Overall, Louisville outshot FSU, 10-8, while the Noles had the advantage in corners (4-3) and saves (4-3).

Krikorian Earns 400th Win As Noles Shutout Hokies.
Head coach Mark Krikorian becomes eighth NCAA Division I head coach to earn 400 wins as Florida State earns a 2-0 win at Virginia Tech.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Continuing to stay unbeaten in the all-time series with Virginia Tech and extending the overall record to 16-0-2, No. 23 Florida State (7-2-0, 2-1-0 ACC) earned another three points on the road with a 2-0 shutout at Virginia Tech (6-3-2, 0-2-1 ACC) on Sunday afternoon.

With the win, FSU head coach Mark Krikorian becomes the eighth coach in NCAA Division I women's soccer history with 400 wins, and improves his record at Florida State to 232-51-26 for a .793 winning percentage.

Krikorian now has a career collegiate record of 400-100-32 and has been named ACC Coach of the Year four times (2005, 2009, 2012 and 2014) and received NSCAA Regional Coach of the Year honors eight times, including being NSCAA National Coach of the Year in 1992, 1995 and 2014.

The shutout is the third of the season for FSU to give redshirt senior Cassie Miller 43 for her career, moving into a tie for 10th with Marquette's Natalie Kulla (2008-11) on the NCAA all-time list.

"This was a real tough road trip for us, going and playing at Louisville and then coming over to play her at Virginia Tech," said Krikorian. "Coming away with six points and two road wins is a good weekend for us. We'll walk away feeling good about that. I think during the course of today's match, there were some pretty good moments, but certainly some areas where we need to get better."

The Seminoles and Hokies played to a scoreless first half, but FSU led in possession and held a 5-3 advantage in corners. The Noles outshot Virginia Tech, 12-5, in the opening 45 minutes, including six from sophomore Deyna Castellanos.

The best scoring chance for Florida State came in the 36th minute, as a corner kick from Natalia Kuikka went to the top of the six-yard box for Anna Patten. The freshman midfielder headed the ball toward the near post, but a diving save by VT's Mandy McGlynn kept the ball out of the net.

The Hokies nearly opened the scoring in the 53rd minute as Madi Conyers' shot from the right side ricocheted of the back post, but there were no VT players around for the rebound.

Florida State quickly counterattacked and Castellanos was able to take the ball into the penalty box before being taken down by Alia Abu El Hawa. Castellanos converted the PK for her 10th goal of the season, giving FSU a 1-0 lead at 52:27.

Less than three minutes later, Castellanos helped extend the Seminole lead to 2-0 as her chip pass into Dallas Dorosy was collected and the junior midfielder slotted the ball into the net for her third goal of the year at 55:13.

The Seminoles continued to pressure, earning six shots and three corner kicks from the 57th minute to the 73rd minute, keeping Virginia Tech out of their offensive third for the majority of that time.

Florida State held off a couple of late corner kick opportunities by Virginia Tech to secure the win. Overall for the game, FSU outshot the Hokies, 23-6, and had 11 corners to VT's 5.

Florida State Shuts Out NC State.
The No. 21 Seminoles earn a 1-0 win over the Wolfpack for their third ACC win in a row.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Winners of its third-consecutive ACC match, No. 21 Florida State improved to 3-1-0 in conference and 8-2-0 overall with a 1-0 win over NC State (8-3-1, 1-2-1 ACC) on Friday night in front of 1,959 fans at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The Seminoles now have an all-time record of 18-3-2 with NC State, and have won 17 consecutive matches against the Wolfpack, dating back to 2001. FSU has not allowed a goal in the series in the last 684:00 of match time, since a goal on October 17, 2010.

The shutout marks redshirt senior Cassie Miller's 44th shutout of her career, moving her into a tie for seventh all-time in NCAA history, alongside Boston College's Jill Mastroianni (2008-11), West Virginia's Kerri Butler (2007-10) and Rutgers' Erin Guthrie (2006-09). Miller is now one shutout away from tying Kelsey Wys' school-record total of 45, set from 2010-13.

"I think it was vital to get three points tonight," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "At this stage of the season, everyone is fighting for points. I think in the first half, we played quite well. But in the second half, NC State came out and took it to us and took over a lot of the game. Overall, we competed very favorably in the first half, but in the second half, I don't think we were sharp enough.

"The Tallahassee community came out and supported our kids very well, and hopefully they were treated to a good and entertaining game of soccer between two quality teams. We sure do appreciate these folks coming out and cheering us on to victory as they did today."

The Seminoles opened the match with significant offensive pressure and created several scoring chances in the first 15 minutes. Sophomore Deyna Castellanos recorded the first shot of the match in the third minute, but it was high of the goal.

Castellanos nearly got on the end of a Kaycie Tillman pass near the penalty spot in the eighth minute, but it was too far in front of the Venezuelan forward. Freshman Emily Madril sent a long ball down the right side for junior Dallas Dorosy in the 13th minute, but after crossing over her opponent to create space, her shot from 15 yards was just wide of the net.

Castellanos helped spark the game's only goal, slipping a ball into the box for Dorosy who took a shot that was saved away by NC State's Sydney Wootten. Junior Kaycie Tillman was in position to collect the rebound and finish the play for her first goal of the season.

NC State worked into some solid offensive chances later in the first half, but FSU's Gabby Carle had an impressive tackle on the left side to stop a counterattack in the 23rd minute and Taylor Hallmon caught up and challenged NCSU's Kristina Schuster on a breakaway to force her shot to go wide of the goal in the 29th minute.

The Noles had a great scoring chance near the end of the half as a long ball by Natalia Kuikka from the backline found Castellanos at the top of the penalty box in the 40th minute. The sophomore was able to head the ball over to Adrienne Richardson on the right, but NC State's Wootten made a nice save on Richardson's shot to keep the game at 1-0 heading into intermission.

The second half started off slowly from both teams, as no shots were taken in the first 17 minutes of the period. NC State was given a free kick from 25 yards in the 60th minute, but after playing the ball out the right, Cailyn Boch was ruled to be offside on a cross into the six-yard box.

Castellanos worked through the midfield in the 62nd minute and took a shot from 20 yards on the right that just skipped over the crossbar in what ended up being the only shot for the Noles in the second half. Florida State was able to get a pair of corners in the 71st minute, but could not create shots off of either opportunity.

NC State had its only shot on goal in the 77th minute as Ella Bonner's shot from the right side was caught by Miller. The Wolfpack had a quality chance to equalize the match in the 87th minute, as a free kick from 35 yards bounced in the box and was headed by Bonner, but the shot was deflected and easily secured by Miller to end the threat and preserve the win.

Overall for the match, FSU outshot NC State 10-6, including a 6-1 advantage in shots on goal. The Noles and Wolfpack tied with two corner kicks apiece.

Cassie Miller Ties FSU Shutout Record Versus BC.
The redshirt senior goalkeeper matches Kelsey Wys with her 45th career shutout on Thursday night in a 3-0 win over Boston College.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Adding another accolade to her already impressive career, redshirt senior goalkeeper Cassie Miller matched the Seminole record in shutouts as No. 16 Florida State (9-2-0, 4-1-0 ACC) earned a 3-0 win over Boston College (8-5-1, 2-2-1 ACC) on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Miller earned the 45th shutout of her career, moving into a tie for fifth place in NCAA history, matching her Seminole predecessor Kelsey Wys (2010-13) as well as Milwaukee's Erin Kane (2005-08).

"Cassie is a model of consistency," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "Sometimes goalkeepers can be a little erratic, but we are very fortunate to have one that is steady as can be. I thought the number crosses that Boston College put in, corner kicks and so on, Cassie came and handled them cleanly which really settled the game for us on a number of occasions. She's continuing to have an outstanding career here and we're thrilled with her development and progress and look forward to what's ahead. But right now, we feel very good about playing against a good Boston College team and coming away with three points."

The Seminoles nearly scored the first goal of the match in the ninth minute as a long ball from midfield by Clara Robbins crossed over to the right side of the six-yard box for Deyna Castellanos. The sophomore forward took her shot out of the air, but the ball ricocheted off the near post. Junior Dallas Dorosy was able to pick up the loose ball, but her shot went just wide of the net.

FSU opened the scoring shortly afterward as Robbins was taken down in the penalty box in the 13th minute. Freshman Gloriana Villalobos stepped to the spot and converted the penalty kick for her first career goal, giving the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Florida State earned a corner kick in the 25th minute, but Boston College was able to secure possession and create a counterattack as Jenna Bike sprinted through the midfield with the ball. Senior defender Emma Koivisto was able to catch up and block her shot from 15 yards, creating a corner opportunity for the Eagles. It was one of six corners in the first half and 10 for the match for BC, but the Eagles were unable to get a direct shot off any free kick chance on Thursday night.

Freshman Emily Madril helped the Noles close out the first half on a high note, taking possession of the ball near midfield and creating a give-and-go opportunity with fellow freshman Bella Dorosy on the right side. Once Madril got the ball back, she took on three BC defenders before burying a shot from 15 yards into the net in the 44th minute to make it 2-0 Florida State. It was the first goal of her collegiate career.

The second half started with continued FSU pressure as Dallas Dorosy and Castellanos each had shots on goal in the first five minutes of the second period. Kaycie Tillman started the first scoring chance, slipping a ball into Dorosy, but BC's Alexis Bryant came off her line and was able to nearly reach the ball before the shot and deflected it away. Castellanos was the recipient of a great cross into the box by freshman Gabby Carle, but the sophomore's header went into the hands of Bryant.

Boston College continued to push and pressure and Sam Coffey had a solid scoring chance in the 61st minute, but Natalia Kuikka was able to get in front of it to block it away from danger.

Dallas Dorosy extended the Seminole lead to 3-0 in the 64th minute as after a Seminole corner, Villalobos sent in a ball to the top of the box for Castellanos. After being deflected by several players, the ball bounced out into space for Dorosy to cleanly finish for her fourth goal of the season.

FSU's Miller made a pair of saves down the stretch to preserve the victory for the Noles as they won their fourth match in a row.

Overall, FSU outshot the Eagles 14-9, with a 7-3 advantage in shots on goal.

The Seminole freshmen again filled up the box score and continued to be a key part of the success of the FSU soccer team this season. Five of the eleven starters tonight were freshmen and eight total freshman saw playing time. Overall, five goals and 11 assists have come from freshmen in 2017, as the newcomers have quickly adjusted to collegiate soccer.

"The freshmen are doing pretty well," said Krikorian. "I think that the freshmen class is going to continue to develop, get better and create chances to score goals for us, as they did today. The future is very bright for us."

No. 16 Noles Fall at No. 4 Duke.
Florida State takes a 2-0 road loss on Sunday at No. 4 Duke. DURHAM, NC - Shutout for just the third time this season, No. 16 Florida State (9-3-0, 4-2-0 ACC) was defeated 2-0 on the road by No. 4 Duke (13-1-0, 6-0-0 ACC) on a cloudy and rainy Sunday afternoon at Koskinen Stadium.

The 2-0 loss also marked the first time the Seminoles faced a two-goal deficit since the 2015 College Cup semifinal against Duke on December 4.

"We lost to a very good team today," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "It makes it challenging when you are playing a good team and concede a goal early and have to work hard to try and get back. I think in the second half, our kids came out with continued fight and resilience. We know that we are young team and this was a great test for us. We're going to walk away learning a lot of lessons and we'll be better for it later on."

Duke quickly took a 1-0 lead in the third minute on a goal by Ella Stevens. After Chelsea Burns and Imani Dorsey brought the ball down the left side, Stevens received the ball near the middle of the box and her shot bounced off the far post and into the net for her third goal of the season.

It was the first goal allowed by Florida State in 292:47 of match time, dating back to a second-half goal at Louisville on September 21.

The Blue Devils made it 2-0 in the 22nd minute as Dorsey started a counterattack through the midfield and passed it out to Kayla McCoy on the left. The junior hit a shot that was stopped by FSU's Cassie Miller, but she couldn't secure the ball and Dorsey continued her run and put away the rebound.

One of the best scoring chances in the first half for Florida State came in the 41st minute as Olivia Bergau slipped a pass into Adrienne Richardson at the top of the penalty box. The freshman moved around her defender to create space, but her shot was blocked by another Duke defender.

FSU nearly found its first goal of the match early on in the second half as a combination play near the top of the box between Gloriana Villalobos and Kaycie Tillman worked the ball into the penalty box, and after a challenge by Duke defenders, the ball bounced out to Clara Robbins on the right, but her shot was just wide of the left post in the 47th minute.

Duke allowed the Seminoles to hold a significant margin in possession in the second half, dropping five players into its backline, but FSU unable to find many cracks in the defense to create quality scoring chances down the stretch.

One of the best opportunities came in the 80th minute as Robbins again worked herself free on the right, sending a shot on goal that required a diving save by Duke's EJ Proctor to keep out of the net.

Robbins again took a shot in 88th minute after a long ball by Taylor Hallmon and a drop pass by Richardson gave her the ball near the penalty spot, but her shot was high of the net.

Overall, Duke outshot FSU 9-8 and had a 3-1 advantage in corners.

Noles Shutout Gators In Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown.
FSU takes down UF on the road, 2-0, on Thursday night.

GAINESVILLE, FL - After a goal by Deyna Castellanos just 66 seconds into the match, the Seminoles took a lead that they would not relinquish as No. 16 Florida State (10-3) recorded a 2-0 shutout at No. 10 Florida (11-3) on Thursday night at James G. Pressly Stadium in the Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown.

It marked the fifth shutout by Florida State in the all-time series with the Gators, and the third in the last five matches. The shutout by Cassie Miller also set a Florida State record with 46, surpassing Kelsey Wys' total of 45 shutouts set from 2010-13. Miller is also now tied for fourth in NCAA history with Jackie Kerestine from North Texas (2011-15).

"Of course, scoring an early goal, as we found out at Duke, can influence the way the game goes," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "I thought our kids competed very favorably today. What I've been saying since the Duke game is that we'd find out whether our young ones learned any lessons and I'd say they did. That Florida team is a really good team. They are a well-coached team and a talented team. To come here in their backyard and come away with a result is very good for us."

The Seminoles quickly got on the board in the second minute after Florida misplayed a ball back to the goalkeeper in the second minute, awarding FSU with an indirect free kick from 15 yards. Freshman Gloriana Villalobos slightly tapped the ball back to Castellanos and the sophomore blasted it into the net for her 11th goal of the season.

UF had a decent scoring chance in the seventh minute after earning a corner kick on the left side. With the sun still setting behind the grandstands at Pressly Stadium, it made the service hard to track by FSU goalkeeper Miller. She lost it in the sun, allowing the ball to get to Deanne Rose, but her shot was kept out of the net by Villalobos, who was hugging the left post.

Florida managed its best scoring chance of the half in the 23rd minute as Lais Araujo crossed a ball through the box from the right and found Gabby Seiler all alone on the left from 10 yards out. The midfielder's shot was well over the goal as the game remained 1-0 FSU.

The Seminoles made it 2-0 less than a minute later as Emily Madril took the ball on the right side and fed it to Villalobos in space in the midfield. The freshman worked the ball towards the penalty box before slipping a ball into Dallas Dorosy for the junior to slot into the net for her career-high fifth goal of the season.

Florida's Briana Solis lined a shot from 20 yards in the 41st minute, but it narrowly went over the crossbar as the game went to intermission with Florida State leading 2-0.

Florida pressured throughout the second half to try and get their first goal, but the Seminole defense stood strong throughout with quality positioning and precision passing to get the ball out of danger and keep possession.

UF's Rose took several shots for the Gators in the second half, but her shot in the 51st minute was blocked by Emma Koivisto, her attempt in the 60th minute was saved by FSU's Miller and her counterattack shot in the 64th minute was wide of the net.

The Gators took two shots and earned two corners in the final 15 minutes, including a blast from Araujo that was impressively saved by Miller in the 88th minute, but they were unable to get on the scoreboard as the Seminoles closed out the match for a 2-0 win.

Overall for the match, Florida outshot the Noles 10-8, but the Noles held the advantage in shots on goal, 5-4. Florida had four corners throughout the match, while FSU finished with three.

WAKE FOREST 2, FLORIDA STATE 1
10/15/2017, WINSTON-SALEM, NC

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 16 FSU Soccer Falls At No. 22 Wake Forest.
The Seminoles are defeated 2-1 on Sunday afternoon by the Demon Deacons.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Searching for the equalizer and taking the final five shots of the match, No. 16 Florida State (10-4-0, 4-3-0 ACC) came up just short against No. 22 Wake Forest (10-3-2, 4-2-1 ACC) on Sunday, falling by a score of 2-1 at Spry Stadium.

"This was a really good game between two good teams, so credit to Wake Forest," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "They created enough chances and scored their goals. I thought our kids competed very well, but we weren't quite good enough in the penalty box. And at the end of the day, the game is won and lost in the penalty box and they were better at it today than we were. We'll go back and get prepared for Notre Dame on Thursday."

The Seminoles put on early pressure, getting a trio of corners in the second and third minutes, along with two shots by Clara Robbins, but were unable to find the back of the net.

Wake Forest returned the favor with three corners of its own in the 19th and 20th minutes, with a shot by Madison Hammond that was saved by FSU's Cassie Miller and another from Hannah Betfort that was wide.

The Demon Deacons took a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute as Estelle Laurier started a counterattack on the right side near midfield. The forward slipped the ball into Bayley Feist at the top of the box, giving her a one-on-one opportunity with Miller and the junior was able to score her fifth goal of the season.

It marked the first goal scored by Wake Forest against Florida State in 358:36 of match time, dating back to Katie Stengel's goal in the 64th minute of the 2011 ACC Championship game.

Wake Forest continued to pressure and had quality chances on crosses from in the 28th and 42nd minutes, but the first shot by Ryanne Brown was saved by Miller and Bri Carney's shot from near the penalty spot was wide.

FSU's Bella Dorosy entered the match in the 33rd minute and quickly made her presence known as Deyna Castellanos sent a ball into the box for the freshman just 15 seconds later. Dorosy beat her defender to the ball and directed a shot past the Wake Forest goalkeeper, but it rolled into the post and was cleared away.

A Seminole foul near the sideline on the left gave the Demon Deacons a free kick in the 51st minute about 25 yards from the goal. WF's Kate Ravenna's service found Feist near the back post and she was able to head it into the net for her second goal of the game as Wake Forest made it a 2-0 game.

Freshman Gabby Carle created a pair of chances on the left in the 55th and 59th minute, but her first centering pass was unable to find a teammate, while her second was blocked by the Wake Forest defense.

The Noles got on the board in the 61st minute, as Robbins sent a through ball down the left side for Castellanos, who beat the keeper to the right for her 12th goal of the season, cutting the Demon Deacon lead to 2-1.

A foul by WF on Kaycie Tillman set up a Seminole free kick from 25 yards on the right side in the 69th minute. After the ball was sent into the box, it eventually found Tillman on the left side of the six-yard box, and the shot by the junior midfielder went off the crossbar.

Another quality chance by the Noles came in the 77th minute as Gloriana Villalobos slipped a ball in behind the WF backline for Castellanos in front of the keeper. Deyna's first touch was a bit too strong as she tried to dribble around goalkeeper Lindsay Preston, and went over the endline.

Castellanos combined with Adrienne Richardson in the 81st minute, as the freshman received a chip pass at the top of the box and her shot required a diving save to keep Wake Forest in front.

As the Noles continued to press to tie the match, shots by Emily Madril and Robbins were just wide of the goal as Wake Forest held on to win 2-1.

Overall for the match, FSU outshot the Deacs 9-7, with a 5-3 advantage in corner kicks.

The Seminoles continued their struggles on the road at Wake Forest, and fall to 1-8-2 all-time at Spry Stadium, with the lone victory coming in 2006 by a score of 3-2.

FSU Drops Back-And-Forth Battle With Notre Dame.
The Seminoles come back from two-goal deficit to take a 3-2 lead, before eventually losing 4-3 to Notre Dame. TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a match that saw 36 fouls called (22 for Notre Dame and 14 on Florida State) along with three yellow cards issued to ND, it was a back-and-forth battle between the Noles and the Irish on Thursday night before Notre Dame (8-5-3, 4-3-1 ACC) scored the game-winner in the 88th minute to earn a 4-3 win over No. 18 Florida State (10-5-0, 4-4-0 ACC) at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The Seminoles fought back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to tie the match in the 55th minute and take the lead in the 60th minute, but Notre Dame was able to outlast FSU, scoring a pair of goals over the final eight minutes.

"I thought on both of the first two [Notre Dame] goals, we could have done a little bit better with them," said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. "You can't gift good teams goals, and when you make mistakes it is going to come back and bite you. Credit to Notre Dame, they came in here and earned the win.

"At the end of the day, we have to be better. The kids fought back very well in the second half to come back to equalize and go ahead. I think the fourth goal we may have been a little bit tired from pressing as hard as we did to get back in the game, but again, a good strike by the kid and credit to them."

Notre Dame controlled the opening 45 minutes, outshooting the Noles 10-3, as the Irish took a 2-0 lead into halftime. They opened the scoring in the 29th minute as a Seminole foul allowed Jennifer Westendorf to take a free kick from 25 yards, lining it over the defensive wall and into the net for a 1-0 lead.

ND's Sammi Fisher made it 2-0 at 43:47 as she got behind the Seminole defense and took a shot from the right that went off the crossbar, bounced down into the six-yard box and she was able to follow up and easily score on the rebound.

Florida State managed to have significant possession in its offensive third during the first half, and earned seven corner kicks, but were unable to convert them into many shots or dangerous chances. One of the best opportunities came early in the match as a combination of Deyna Castellanos and Kaycie Tillman in the sixth minute worked through the middle of the field to Adrienne Richardson near the penalty spot, but her shot was wide of the goal.

The Seminoles came out from halftime with increased focus and quickly got on the board in the 47th minute on a goal by Castellanos. Tillman took the ball on the left and slotted a ball into the sophomore forward at the penalty spot. She was able to turn her defender and bury the ball inside the post for her 13th goal of the season, cutting the ND lead to 2-1.

A Notre Dame foul to Clara Robbins in the 54th minute allowed a medical substitution to bring in Olivia Bergau, and she quickly made an impact on the game. The junior was able to help tie the match at 2-2 just 67 seconds later, working free in the penalty box and receiving a cross from Tillman after Megan Connolly sent a ball down the right side.

Florida State took the lead five minutes later after Gloriana Villalobos was taken down in the box by Rachel Heard, prompting the referee to issue her a yellow card. Castellanos stepped to the spot and converted the penalty kick to make it 3-2 FSU at 59:54.

The Noles continued the second half pressure, and did not allow a shot in the second half to Notre Dame until the 70th minute. FSU nearly extended their lead in the 75th minute as Castellanos crossed in a ball to Dallas Dorosy, but her shot was saved by ND's goalkeeper Lexi Nicholas.

Notre Dame tied the match at 3-3 in the 83rd minute as a Florida State foul gave the Irish a free kick from 35 yards in the middle of the field. Similar to her attempt in the first half, Westendorf took the free kick and lined a shot into the upper corner for her eighth goal of the year.

ND built on the momentum and earned a pair of chances in the 86th minute before Fisher scored her second goal of the match at 87:35 to put the Irish in front, 4-3. The Noles earned a late corner, but could not find a shot as time expired.

Overall, Notre Dame outshot the Noles, 16-12, including 9-5 in shots on goal, while FSU had a 9-2 advantage in corner kicks.
