TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A nine-game win streak and an undefeated ACC record is what’s on the line this weekend when second-ranked Florida State (13-1-0, 6-0-0) heads to Pittsburgh (6-8-0, 2-4-0) for the first time in school history to face the Pitt Panthers on Saturday, October 18 at 12 noon.
This marks just the second meeting between these two schools as Florida State defeated Pitt 4-0 last year in Tallahassee as four different Seminoles scored a goal including current players Dagny Brynjarsdottir, Marta Bakowska-Mathews and Carson Pickett. The Seminoles outshot the Panthers 31-0 in that match while holding a 14-0 advantage in corner kicks.
FSU has played well on the road this year posting a record of 5-0-0 away from the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles have outscored the opposition 11-3 with three shutouts on the road.
Five Seminoles have registered double-digit points in 2014 with four players scoring at least six goals. Berglind Thorvaldsdottir leads the team with 10 goals and 21 points, while Marta Bakowska-Mathews and fellow country man Dagny Brynjarsdottir has tallied eight goals apiece.
Florida State is off to 6-0-0 start in the ACC for just the second in school history. The Seminoles also won their first six games in 2012. FSU has outscored the opposition 16-1 through their first six league matches this year.
