FSU Falls Short to No. 4 Duke 3-2 in Overtime
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Despite tornado warnings and heavy rain, No. 4 Duke (13-3, 5-0 in the ACC) outlasted the Seminoles 3-2 during the first overtime period at the Seminole Soccer Complex. Duke's Samantha Baggett's unassisted score, her second of the day, off of an outstretched Melissa Juhl was the Blue Devils game-winner in the sudden death period.
The Seminoles (7-10, 0-7 in the ACC) got on the scoreboard first when Stephanie Dietrich headed in Angela Bonaffino's corner kick from inside the box in the 10th minute. Baggett tied the game at one apiece 17 minutes later in the 27th minute, off an Andi Melde pass.
Before the first period would end, Melde would add a goal of her own after a Duke penalty kick in the 34th minute and FSU's Jessica Driscoll would tie the game with her unassisted score from 15 yards out in the 47th minute.
Neither team would score again until Baggett's winner in the 99th minute of play.
Despite the loss, FSU outshot Duke 11-7 and the Blue Devils received four yellow cards.
