Fsu Drops Another Close Match

GREENVILLE, SC -- The Florida State women's soccer team (3-6) dropped another close match on the road as Furman (5-4-1) hit the game-winning goal with 1:05 left to play to take the 2-1 win and end a three-game losing streak at a rain-soaked Eugene Stone Stadium. FSU was also defeated by No. 10 Clemson 2-1 on Friday.

FSU's fourth straight loss and fourth away from the Seminole Soccer Complex came at 88:55 in the second half when Lady Paladin Sarah Tollick scored from five yards out when teammate Melissa Sutton's shot from 20 yards out died in a rain-puddle just in front of FSU goalkeeper Melissa Juhl. Tollick dodged in and hit the game-winner before FSU defense were able to clear the ball.

FSU tied the match at one apiece at 81:30 of the second half when Kasey McCall took a Danielle Foard pass and deflected the ball off of Furman goalkeeper Jen McNutt and the cross-bar before settling in the back of the net.

Tollick also assisted on the game's first score and lone goal of the first half when she set up Holly Aure with a high crossing shot that hit the left upper corner of the FSU goal.

Florida State travels nest weekend to UNC-Greensboro on Friday, before taking on Elon College on Sunday.
