TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The top-ranked Florida State women's soccer team took advantage of a penalty kick midway through the first overtime to top No. 9 Virginia 1-0 on Sunday at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Seminoles (14-0, 7-0 ACC) remained the nation's only unbeaten and untied team, while the Cavaliers fell to 11-4-1 overall and 4-3-1 in the ACC.
"It was disappointing the way we lost," said head coach Steve Swanson. "I thought we fought really hard the entire game and we put ourselves in position to get a result on the road against the No. 1 team in the nation. It just didn't go our way today. We need to keep working on some things because I still think we can get much better as a team. That will be our focus this week as we get ready for these final two regular season games."
The teams traded possession throughout the first half with neither side creating many quality scoring chances. Virginia had the best opportunity of the first half with four minutes remaining. Kate Norbo (Roanoke, Va.) took advantage of a give-away by the Florida State defense and had a shot of the top of the area that was deflected just wide. The game remained scoreless at intermission as the Cavaliers had three of the four shots tallied in the first half.
Neither side could find a goal in the second half either, as each keeper was forced to come up with a big save to keep the game scoreless. Seminole goalie Kelsey Wys tipped wide a blast from Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.) in the 64th minute after a turnover by the FSU defense. On a late Florida State corner kick, Danielle DeLisle (Baltimore, Md.) stopped a header from Kassey Kallman
The Seminoles scored the game winner midway through the first overtime as Ines Jaurena converted a penalty kick after a trip was ruled on the Cavaliers in the box.
The Cavaliers were the first team this season to take the Seminoles to overtime, but ended up suffering their first shutout of the season.
Virginia outshot 12-11 as each team had five corner kicks. DeLisle made three saves in goal for the Cavaliers, while Wys made four at the other end for the Seminoles.
The Cavaliers will have a week off before concluding their road trip next Sunday at Virginia Tech. Game time in Blacksburg is 5 p.m. Virginia will conclude the regular season on Oct. 25 by hosting Boston College.
