(The ins and outs of FSU soccer)
For the second weekend, the Seminoles faced an opponent who was coming off a two-loss weekend but this time, fared much better. UGA was 0-2 last weekend in the SEC and prior to that matchup, FSU fell to Clemson who went 0-2 in the ACC the weekend prior to facing the Seminoles. UNC was also coming off a loss when FSU visited Chapel Hill.
Talley gets the start…
Freshman Katie Talley is the newest face to the starting lineup. She made the start against Georgia after her premier against Clemson. To make her first start even sweeter, both of her parents were in attendance.
FSU will spend the rest of the season without tough defender Dee Foard. Foard tore her ACL, LCL and miniscus in the final seconds of the Wake Forest game September 19 and will miss the rest of the season.
Seminoles on the tube…
FSU will take on South Alabama on the Sunshine Network on Sunday. The Seminoles are 1-1 in televised matches.
Here’s to you, Miss Robinson…
First appearance, first shot, first goal. Kelly Robinson saw her first action as a Seminole against the Georgia Bulldogs. The freshman from Greensboro, N.C., entered the game at the 37 minute mark. Seven minutes later, Robinson headed in the game winning goal for the Seminoles.
Downing the ‘Dawgs
After a 1-3 record on the road for the past three weeks, Florida State came home and notched a HUGE win Friday night. The Seminoles took a 2-0 win over the Georgia Bulldogs, who were ranked 5th in the region. UGA dropped out of the national rankings last week after suffering two SEC losses the prior weekend.
One shot, one goal…
FSU fell victim to the “one shot, one goal” syndrome against Miami and Florida when both teams scored off their first shot of the game. But the Seminoles returned the favor when they scored off the first shot of the game against Georgia, giving them the 1-0 lead before the half.
