TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State soccer team took the NC
State Wolfpack to double overtime tonight, ending the game in a 2-2 tie
at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles are 8-7-1 on the season as
the Wolfpack goes to 6-7-2.

“I was disappointed with getting a two goal lead in the first
half and not being able to get that third goal,” Head Coach Patrick
Baker said. “A 2-0 lead is a good start but we needed to play 90 minutes
and stressed that at half time. We needed to get that third goal and we
lost focus.”

Sophomore Marte Vik Edvardsen took a short cross from her sister
Maren to score the Seminoles first goal at the 5:20 mark. Junior April
Murphy added another goal off a short cross from Maren Vik Edvardsen to
give FSU the 2-0 lead at the half. NC State’s Shannon Blair put the
Wolfpack on the board with a goal off a direct kick from 35-yards out at
the 50:00 mark before tying the game with another direct kick at the
67:53 mark to send the game into overtime. The two teams remained
scoreless after two sudden death overtime sessions and finished the game
at 2-2. Maren Vik Edvardsen led the team with two assists and three
shots.

“I have to take my hat off to Shannon Blair for two incredible
goals,” Baker said. “Those were just two unbelievable goals.

“We’ve been stressing to the freshman how not only are we
fighting the 11 players on the other side of the field but we are also
fighting history. We’ve only won three games in the ACC since the
program began and they need to understand what we’re fighting here.
They played a tough first half and I was proud of them for going out
strong in the first half. We just need to start playing a full 90
minutes.”

The Seminoles return to the field on Sunday, October 24 at
1:00pm. Florida State will host the Duke Blue Devils live on the
Sunshine Network.
