[PROFILE] Japanese Mami Yamaguchi has sure filled the void in the Florida State attack following the departure of U.S. international India Trotter and Australia international Sal Kuralay.

Yamaguchi set a Seminole record when she scored her third hat trick of the season, contributing three goals in FSU's 7-0 win over North Florida on Tuesday.

"We know that Mami is an unbelievable player," said FSU coach Mark Krikorian.  "When you have chances, elite players finish those chances.  She has done a very good job of being opportunistic and putting herself in situations to finish those goals and tonight was another good example of that."

Yamaguchi pushed her season totals to a team-high 12 goals and 29 points in seven games, surpassing her career totals of eight goals and 28 points compiled in her first two seasons with the 'Noles. Yamaguchi has now registered a point in every game this season. 

"I have to give credit to my teammates," said Yamaguchi. "They are always giving me a lot of good chances. Except for the free kicks, my teammates are finding me and giving me the opportunity to score."

Yamaguchi didn't need much help from her teammates on her three goals against UNF. The first goal came when she bended a corner kick into the goal, and the third came on a curling free kick from 22 yards out. She one-timed Finn Sanna Talonen's pass into the net for the second goal.

NOTABLE.The game started in record fashion as it took Talonen just 26 seconds to score the first goal of the evening -- the quickest goal in FSU history surpassing the previous record of 41 seconds set by Erin Grimsley in 1997.
