CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Florida State dropped its ACC opener at North Carolina, 1-0, after the Tar Heels managed a sixth inning home run. The Seminoles, now 16-5, will return to Anderson Stadium for a doubleheader at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow to finish the series with the Tar Heels (19-3).

Picking up the loss was Terese Gober who entered the game in the fifth, giving up one earned on one hit, a home run to center, while striking out four. The junior is now 11-3 after relieving Sarah Hamilton who struck out six batters, gave up a pair of hits, walked one and hit a batter.

Florida State had a plethora of opportunities to score in the first after loading the bases on a hit from Carly Wynn an error on the UNC pitcher and a hit batter. Despite their best efforts, the Noles would not score after back-to-back batters struck out.

Wynn was 2-for-3 while freshman Shayla Jackson picked up the third hit for FSU in the third.

North Carolina’s pitcher, Lisa Norris, recorded 12 Seminole strikeouts while hitting Ashley Stager and walking Michelle Snyder and Brittany Joseph.

It was North Carolina’s Brittany McKinney who ended the scoreless streak with a homer to centerfield in the bottom of the sixth, her third this year.
