TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Continuing ACC play with another road game, No. 10 Florida State (8-2-1, 1-2-0 ACC) will head north and take on Notre Dame (5-5-0, 1-1-0 ACC) in a match on Thursday, September 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Alumni Stadium.
The game was moved from its original date of September 28 due to Hurricane Florence, in order to allow ND and NC State to make up their match that was postponed due to the storm.
“Notre Dame is a very good team,” said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. “They are very talented and we know what we are up against. We are hoping to continue to improve game after game, day after day. The kids are always excited to go and compete. And if you are not successful, as we weren’t up in Boston, you want to get back out and compete again. So I think that we’ll be ready to go on Thursday.”
The Seminoles and Irish are playing in their 10th match all-time, with Florida State holding a 5-4 advantage in the series, including a 2-1 mark in regular season ACC play. It is just the third time that the Noles will play on the road at ND, with FSU earning a 1-0 victory in the most recent matchup in 2015.
The Noles have scored 23 goals from 13 different players this season and the 13 individual scorers ranks in a tie for eighth-most in program history. The total also is tied for the second-highest in the NCAA in 2018, trailing only Mercer, who have had 14 different players score a goal this season.
Junior Deyna Castellanos has scored four goals this season and 30 for her career, which already ranks sixth in school history.
Thursday’s match will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra and live stats will be produced through Statbroadcast. Links for both will be available on the soccer schedule page of Seminoles.com.
Throughout 2018-19, the Seminoles will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of women’s intercollegiate athletics at Florida State and there are many events and reunions planned for all women’s sports. Head to www.seminoles.com/50th/ for more information that will be updated throughout the year.
