Top 20 Moments: #12 – Record Crowd vs Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Women’s Soccer program turns 20 in 2014! In conjunction with celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Seminole soccer team will countdown the top 20 moments over the last 19 seasons.

Join the Seminoles throughout the fall on Seminoles.com and through their social media outlets on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as the program takes a look back in history to honor this monumentally occasion by unveiling the top 20 moments.

The countdown continues this week at No. 12 with a record crowd on hand inside the Seminole Soccer Complex to see Florida State take on its intra-state rival, the Florida Gators, in 2006.

FSU downs Florida 1-0 in front of a record crowd

Florida State’s 1-0 victory over Florida on September 8, 2006 came in impressive fashion as the Seminoles downed their intra-state rival in front of a record crowd of 4,582. The mark shattered the previous home record crowd of 1,912 set back on September 22, 2005 as Florida State hosted North Carolina.

The crowd against the Gators was over 2,500 above the listed capacity of the Seminole Soccer Complex as fans packed every inch of space inside the stadium from the stands, to the grass berms and every level of the parking garage adjacent to the field. The crowd wasn’t just impressive in terms of a match played in Tallahassee as it was, at the time, the second-largest crowd to ever watch an FSU/UF soccer match. 

Selin Kuralay’s goal from 30 yards out with less than three minutes remaining in the first half was the only score in the game as No. 1 Florida State downed No. 24 Florida 1-0. It was the first shutout ever recorded by FSU in the series giving the Seminoles six wins in the last nine meetings against the Gators.
