TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 6 Florida State soccer team (6-2-0) starts ACC play on Thursday, September 19th at 7:00 pm against Boston College (7-0-1).
“I think that we are in a good spot,” said head coach Mark Krikorian. “I said it to the team the other day and it is certainly how I feel. I am not sure that we have ever put together a more rigorous non-conference schedule. We have played a lot of very good teams and have been challenged in a lot of different ways and we continue to learn about ourselves. We know in the next segment we are going to continue to learn and continue to grow and get better.”
Florida State is coming off of a weekend in which they went 2-0 with wins over No. 24 Colorado and Villanova. The Seminoles are 127-56-11 all-time in the month of September with an 83-20-8 record in September under head coach Mark Krikorian.
The Garnet and Gold have met up with Boston College 19 times and hold a 13-3-3 advantage, including a 9-0-1 record in Tallahassee. The last time the Seminoles and Eagles met was in Chestnut Hill a season ago when the Eagles came away with a 2-1 win.
“Right now I think we are in a good spot,” said Krikorian. “We have a really good opponent coming in here that has not lost. Last year we went up there and they beat us. Hopefully, we will be prepared and ready for a good performance tomorrow night.”
The game was scoreless until the 51st minute when BC earned a goal on a penalty kick. Deyna Castellanos tied the game up with a penalty kick goal of her own in the 74th minute. Less than a minute later Boston College scored again to take a 2-1 lead.
BC enters the match with a 7-0-1 record. Their only tie came in a 1-1 final against Providence. The Eagles are led by Sam Smith on the attack with five goals and one assist. Allie Auguar leads them in goal with three shutouts in seven games, while only allowing three goals.
Thursday’s game against Boston College will be broadcast on the ACC Network with links to the broadcast and live stats on the schedule page of Seminoles.com. Admission to all Florida State soccer regular-season games are free.
