TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Women’s Soccer Team returned to the Seminole Soccer Complex on Saturday, March 21, and earned a 5-0 victory over UCF.
The weather was perfect for soccer Saturday afternoon, and the Seminoles did not disappoint. Jessica Price notched the first goal, and eventual game winner, on an assist by Marissa Kazbour midway through the first half. The Seminoles found the back of the net again in the first period when Tori Huster took advantage of an opening on her second shot of the game.
In the second period the Knights stepped up their offense, but the Seminoles defense held strong as goalkeeper Erin McNulty came into the box and earned four saves. The stingy defense of the Seminoles was only matched by their increased offensive output in the second period. Less than two minutes into the second, Amanda DaCosta capitalized on a defensive hole and came away with a goal. Midway through the second period Toni Pressley also found pay dirt on an assist from Julie Lancos. Freshman Katie Bolinsky scored the final goal of the game on an assist by recent team addition, Breezy Hupp.
In all, seven Seminoles took at least one shot in Saturday’s match, compared to UCF’s five shooters. Seminole goalkeeper Kimmy Diaz earned two saves in the first period, while UCF goalkeeper Lynzee Lee earned six saves in the game.
Next up for the Seminoles is a home match against Auburn on Saturday, March 28 at 2:00 p.m. Prior to the Auburn match, the Soccer Complex will feature an alumnae charity game with past Seminole Soccer greats. Donations raised during the day’s events will benefit Florida State University’s Relay for Life and former payer Amber Tollefson’s charity GIVE `N GO.
