Women's Soccer Defeats Florida State

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-Sixth-ranked University of Virginia women's soccer (12-1-2, 3-1 in the ACC) scored in the 84th-minute from forward Tania Jovanovic to break a one-goal tie and defeat Florida State (6-9, 0-6 in the ACC) 2-1. The goal, that came with less than five minutes remaining, was a header from four yards out. Midfielder Jennifer Rawlings took a free kick from 30 yards out and played it midfielder Wendy Hartwig in the right corner. Hartwig then sent a cross to Jovanovic for the eventual score.

After UVa got on the scoreboard first in the 47th minute of the second half, FSU's Jill Ford scored on a penalty kick. Defender Danielle Foard was fouled in the box, giving the Seminoles the penalty kick.
