Soccer Blows Past South Alabama, 5-1

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Five Seminoles scored for Florida State this
afternoon as the Seminole soccer team defeated South Alabama 5-1 at the
Seminole Soccer Complex. FSU is 6-5 on the season as South Alabama drops
to 7-4.

“It was kind of frustrating, the 5-1 score dictates that we
played well but we were shaky in some place and good in others,” Head
Coach Patrick Baker said. “We were on and off in everything from defense
to possesions. I think it was a good gut check for us to not play well
and still find a way to win.”

Sophomore Maren Vik Edvardsen started the scoring for the
Seminoles with a header off an assist from April Murphy in the 16th
minute. Junior Sarah Deacon then took a cross from Murphy in the 29th
minute to give the Seminoles a 2-0 lead at the half. Freshman Katie
Talley came out in the first two minutes of the second half and scored
off a corner kick from senior Angela Bonaffino for a 3-0 lead. Bonaffino
then sent a corner kick to sophomore Marte Vik Edvardsen for the fourth
goal of the game before senior Leslie Del Rio found an open goal for the
5-0 lead. South Alabama’s Linda Larsson found the back of the goal after
a defensive scramble in the 85th minute but the Seminoles held on to win
the game 5-1.

“I was very pleased that five players scored today,” Baker said.
“It gives more confidence and shows that more than just one or two
people can score.”

Florida State head to Jacksonville on Wednesday, October 6th for
a 1:00pm match-up with the Dolphins.
