Seminoles knock off Tar Heels
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. — Third-ranked Florida State defeated fifth-ranked North Carolina 1-0 in women’s soccer Wednesday night at Seminole Soccer Complex before 1,786 fans.
The Tar Heels (7-2, 1-2 ACC) dropped their second straight 1-0 match, while the Seminoles improved to 7-0-2, 2-0-1 ACC.
Although UNC outshot FSU 17-10 and had an edge in corner kicks 8-2, it was all for naught as the Seminoles beat the Tar Heels for the third straight time in the series. Each of those three wins by the Seminoles have come by 1-0 scores.
The deciding goal came late in the contest after the Tar Heels were called for a handball near midfield. On the quick restart, FSU pounced on the UNC mistake with Jamia Fields scoring from 18 yards out on the right side, curling a crossing shot into the upper left 90 of the goal with just 7:37 left before the end of regulation.
