[FLORIDA-FLORIDA STATE] Tiffany McCarty had a hand in all three goals and Icelandic freshman Dagny Brynjarsdottirhad a breakout game to lead No. 9 Florida State to a 3-2 win at No. 8 Florida before 4,671 fans Friday night. The victory was the Seminoles' fourth in the last five meetings in Gainesville.
 
“That was a great soccer game,” said FSU coach Mark Krikorian. “Two very good teams, a true battle of two Top 10 teams.  Florida was everything we expected them to be. They have great players, are well coaches and they gave us everything we could handle tonight.”
 
McCarty tied a career-high with two goals, both in the second half, including the game-winner in the 72nd minute.  The deciding goal came less than five minutes after the Gators had tied the game at 2-2.
 
McCarty and Brynjarsdottir connected on a great give-and-go for the game-winner.  With Brynjarsdottir in the middle of the field, she slotted McCarty running in from the right.  McCarty took a touch and one-timed it past a diving Taylor Burke inside the left post for her second goal of the evening.
 
“Dagny gave me the ball, I played it back to her and she played a great through pass and I was just thinking get it on frame, get it on frame, we need this goal,” said McCarty.  “I just placed it and it went in.”

Brynjarsdottir, an Iceland international, had an outstanding game for the Seminoles, registering her first career points on a goal -- a blast from 18 yards in the fourth minute -- and an assist in her first game against the Gators.
 
“I thought that was an unbelievably great game," said Gators coach Becky Burleigh. "It was a great game from both sides, awesome crowd, the whole thing. The whole environment -- it felt like a playoff game. It was a really fun game to be a part of -- besides the result.”
