TALLAHASSEE — For the second time in program history, Florida State defeated the No. 1 team in the country, earning a 1-0 win over top-ranked North Carolina with a goal from Berglind Thorvaldsdottir in the 79th minute on Sunday.
The No. 2 Seminoles (12-1-1, 5-0-1 ACC) secured their 19th straight win at home and are unbeaten in their past 17 matches against ACC opponents, dating to 2013.
"Overall, our performance was very solid," FSU coach Mark Krikorian said. "We limited the number of chances they had at our goal and I thought that in the first half we had some very good looks. To play a team of that quality and find a way to win, it is satisfying."
