Soccer Shuts Out Pitt at Home

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The number one ranked Seminole Soccer team (9-0) wins their 12th consecutive ACC game since October 27, 2019, at home 5-0 against Pittsburgh (7-3).

With the Seminole’s fifth shut-out of the year, they advance to 2-0 in ACC play. Tonight’s matchup with the Panthers resulted in FSU’s sixth game out of nine with at least 4 goals. The scoring opened up with a goal in the 4th minute from freshman Maria Alagoa. Alagoa’s goal was the second goal scored this season within the first four minutes joined by the 29-second goal at Auburn.

Kristina Lynch’s goal in the 46th minute made her the 15th player to score a goal this season which ranks at number two on the record list, behind the 16 players that scored a goal in 2012. The Seminoles also earned a season-high of 14 corner kicks against the Panthers with 40 percent of their attack in the Panther’s defensive end.

The Seminoles found the back of the net early as the attack started with Jenna Nighswonger. Nighswonger played the ball down the sideline to Jody Brown, who then cut into the box and found Alagoa’s feet. Alagoa cut the ball back on an angle beating the Panther’s defender and sent the ball into the left corner with her left foot.
