Preseason All-ACC selection Yujie Zhao scores in FSU soccer’s 4-0 win

It’s fairly uncommon for an all-conference caliber player to come off your bench instead of starting.

But when your roster is as deep as the Florida State soccer team’s is these days, it lends for such options.

And if you ask preseason All-ACC selection Yujie Zhao, she sees perks with both being a starter or a substitute off the bench as she was again Thursday during Florida State’s 4-0 rout of visiting South Alabama.

“I like starting because it’s when you’re on the field and people are cheering you on when you first go onto the field,” said Zhao, who is in her fourth season at FSU. “But I don’t mind substituting in because I feel like I can bring different energy into the game so I don’t really mind doing it that way.”
