MORNING BRIEFING: Seminoles break out
by Paul Kennedy, October 17th, 2008 11:30AM



In an ACC battle of Top 25 teams, No. 20 Florida State broke out with a 5-0 win over No. 22 Wake Forest Thursday night in Tallahassee.

The Seminoles tied a season-high with five goals while four different players posting multi-point performances.

After taking a 1-0 lead into the half, the Seminoles broke the game open with four more goals in the second half.

Sophomore Marissa Kazbour recorded a career-high two goals, while Becky Edwards notched a goal and an assist for her first points on the year.  Rachel Lim also connected on a career-high two assists in the win.

"I thought our team came out and defended very well," said FSU coach Mark Krikorian.  "We established a nice tempo in the game.  It was nice for Toni Pressley to come off the bench and knock that first one in for us.  I thought our attacking play was quite good.  We created some good chances and it was nice that we were actually able to finish them.  Wake Forest is a good team and for us to be able to get a result like that is very good for our team."

Finnish international Sanna Talonen added the fifth goal with her team-leading ninth goal of the season in the 57th minute.

ROAD WARRIORS. Sophomore Colleen Flanagan scored her first career goal in the 94th minute to lift No. 9 Virginia to a 3-2 overtime victory at Maryland -- the Cavaliers' school record fourth ACC road win of the season.
"This was great win as this has historically been a difficult place for us to win," said UVa coach Steve Swanson. "I think it is even a bigger win given how the game played out. Give Maryland a lot of credit for fighting back from being down 2-0. Down the stretch and especially into overtime I thought we really increased our attack and were able to get the game-winner in overtime."
The Cavaliers took the lead on goals by freshman Lauren Alwine (her fourth of the season) and Nikki Krzysik (penalty kick for her third goal of the season), but the Terrapins fought back. They got goals by Annesia Faulkner and Nataly Arias.
The victory snapped a three-game winless streak for Virginia at Maryland.
