Post game quotes following the Seminoles 2-1 win over Florida.

Summer Corum

On her game-winning goal:

“It was awesome and I am so excited. It is so overwhelming. I never would never have imagined that I would get the game-winner to send us to the Sweet 16 in my freshman year.”

“Marte got the ball in the corner and she sent a high cross through the box. I thought to myself `oh g-d just keep your eye on it’ and I hit it with the bottom of my foot and it went in. I couldn’t believe I knocked that ball home.”

Rahael Watkin

“It’s amazing to be in the Sweet 16. To beat them twice in one year is unbelievable and to get the win that puts us in the Sweet 16 against the Gators just makes it all the more special.”

“There are no words to describe what it feels like winning on this field in front of all of these Gator fans. Its great.”

“We gained our respect before today. We have been Top 20 all year long and we are in the Sweet 16 and people know we are for real.”

Coach Baker

“Our team has been in so many great situations all year long. When you play NCAA teams like Wake Forest, North Carolina, Clemson, Duke and Virginia in your conference, it’s like we play an NCAA Tournament game every time we step out.”

“We weathered some storms today. There were stretches where we went without possessing the ball but the most important thing is scoring goals and advancing and that is what we did.”

“This is probably the biggest road win ever for this program. We were a bit concerned coming back into this environment because we haven’t been successful in Gainesville in the past.”

“I would never of thought about the Sweet 16 until we got into the tournament but when we got in and I saw the draw w got excited about facing two teams we had already beaten earlier in the season. We felt we had a chance to make it to the Sweet 16.”

Sarah Crawford

“Most of our success today came from an awesome defensive effort by our team. They played the best game they’ve ever played tonight. Fontes, Halter, Meredith and Boyce did awesome tonight and they don’t always get the recognition they deserve. The defense is the reason we won today.”

“Going to the Sweet 16 is awesome. I knew how good this team is but I wasn’t sure how far this team could go and coming into this season the only Sweet 16 I was familiar with was in basketball so this is definitely huge for us.”
