TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State women’s soccer team looks to improve to 3-0 this spring as they face Auburn this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The match was previously scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday but inclement weather in the Tallahassee area has pushed the match to a Sunday start.
The Seminoles are looking strong this spring as they have outscored opponents 6-0 in the first two matches. With shutout wins against Georgia and UCF, every member of the team is finding a way to contribute. So far this spring, six different players have notched goals, and the team’s four assists were each earned by a different player. Goalkeepers Kimmy Diaz and Erin McNulty split time in the box in the last match against UCF and earned a combined 10 saves in both matches this spring.
The weekend will also feature a Seminole alumnae charity soccer match which is still schedule for 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 28. Fans are encouraged to stay tuned to www.seminoles.com for further updates on any date or times changes regarding the alumnae game.
Past Seminole Soccer greats, including India Trotter and Ali Mims, will be competing in the first-ever Seminole alumnae charity match to raise money for Florida State’s Relay for Life and the GIVE `N GO charity. Fans are encouraged to come out and cheer on their favorite Seminole Soccer alumna, with donations accepted throughout Saturday’s events.
Next up for the Seminoles is a match with intra-state rival Florida next Saturday at Viera Regional Park in Melbourne, Fla., at 1:30 p.m.
