FSU Women’s Soccer Falls To Duke, 3-1

Oct. 24, 1999

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State soccer team dropped an
Atlantic Coast Conference match this afternoon to the #21 Duke Blue
Devils 3-1 at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles drop to 8-8-1
(0-6-1 in the ACC) as the Blue Devils improve to 10-7 (2-4 in the ACC).

“Duke deserved to win today, they were the better team,” Head
Coach Patrick Baker said. “At half time we talked about going out and
trying to score a goal every 15 minutes. When Meredith (Jones) scored
that first goal, we found a little bit of momentum. We had some really
good chances this afternoon but couldn’t capitalize on those chances.”

Duke’s Sherri Kester scored her first of two goals at the 15:54
mark after taking a rebounded ball off FSU goalkeeper Jamie Gurtov and
knocking it in. Kester then added the second goal at the 29:37 mark off
an assist from Rebecca Smith. The Blue Devils scored the third goal of
the game with Kasey Truman adding her unassisted goal at the 39:47 mark
to give Duke the 3-0 lead at half time. Florida State freshman Meredith
Jones put the Seminoles on the board at the 54:10 mark with a goal off a
rebound from Duke goalkeeper Isis Dallis. Florida State held the Blue
Devils scoreless in the second half but fell 3-1.

“I have to give credit to Isis Dallis in goal today,” Baker
said. “She did a fantastic job. We also learned today that we have to
play for a full 90 minutes, no question about it. It’s just something
we’re trying to learn this year.”

The Seminoles will return to action on Thursday, October 28 at
3p.m. as they travel to Auburn, Ala., to take on the Auburn Tigers.
