RALEIGH, NC — The Florida State women’s soccer team (3-3, 0-3 in the
ACC) were dealt their third conference setback of the 1997 season as No. 24
NC State (5-1, 1-0 in the ACC) scored four goals in the second half to

off by feeding Lisa Boggs near the left post of the FSU goal for a
left-footed kick past Seminole goalkeeper Melissa Juhl at 47:56. A little
over nine minutes later, Gallo passed the ball to Jennifer Marsh for a
wide-open shot 20 feet in front of the goal for the eventual game-winner at

goalkeeper Kat Mertz at the 71:33 with the assist by April Murphy and Kasey
