TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State women’s soccer team looks to improve to 2-0 this spring as they face UCF this Saturday at 4:00 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex. This is the first home game for the Seminoles since their Third Round NCAA Tournament match against Boston College in November.
The Seminoles started the spring strong with a 1-0 victory over Georgia last month. Defender Becky Edwards notched the match’s lone goal and five other players recorded a shot each. Additionally, goalkeeper Kimmy Diaz earned her first full game in the box for the Seminoles. For the first time in 2009, Florida State will have the entire team available, as Coach Paul Rogers and four players returned from their respective national team camps and competitions earlier this month.
Following Saturday’s game, the Seminoles will face Auburn at home next Saturday, March 28 at 2:00 p.m. The Seminoles will host an alumnae charity game prior to the match against the Tigers. The alumnae game, benefiting Florida State’s Relay for Life and Give N’ Go, begins at 12:00 p.m. and donations will be accepted throughout the day’s events.
