FSU Seminoles make Elite Eight in NCAA women's soccer


FSU women in 9th straight elite eight

TALLAHASSEE — Top seed Florida State (21-1-3) is back to the Elite Eight of the NCAA women's soccer championship for the ninth year in a row, extending the nation's longest active streak, with a 4-0 win Saturday over Colorado (14-7-2).

Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored a pair of goals and Michaela Hahn tied a career-high with three points on a goal and an assist as the Seminoles set a school record with their 21st victory of the season.

"Well obviously we are thrilled to be sitting here and going to the round of eight," coach Mark Krikorian said. "I thought that our group came out quite strong and put a strong performance in from the start."

FSU scored early and often as all three first-half goals came within the first 15 minutes, including two off the head of Brynjarsdottir in the first seven minutes.

The Seminoles held the Buffaloes to four shots, including just one shot on goal that came in the 38th minute. The shutout was FSU's 14th of the season and second in the tournament. Through the first three postseason games, the 'Noles have outscored the opposition 12-1.

With the win, FSU extended the nation's longest current home unbeaten streak to 34 games (33-0-1).

The winner of today's Boston College-Illinois matchup plays FSU on Friday in the quarter­s.
