Resilient Florida State captures first crown

[ACC] Florida State captured its first ACC title in six trips to the final as the sixth seed Seminoles downed fifth-seeded Wake Forest, the defending champion, 3-1 on penalty kicks after their game ended in a 1-1 tie.
As the sixth-seed, the Seminoles became the lowest seeded team to win the league title. Wake Forest won the championship as the fifth seed in 2010.
“We’re obviously thrilled to come up here and walk away with a championship” said FSU coach Mark Krikorian.  “Wake Forest is obviously a very good team. We battled hard. We were resilient. We kept finding a way to neutralize.”
Seminole goalkeeper Kelsey Wys was named the Tournament MVP after stopping three Wake Forest penalty kicks.

Rachel Nuzzolese scored for the Deacs on their first attempt -- but then Wys stopped the next three attempts, including the fourth spot kick by India Winford to give the Seminoles the title.
Wake Forest broke on top first in the 64th minute to take a 1-0 lead.  Off a Demon Deacon corner, Jackie McSally took a shot that Wys was saved, but the loose ball went right to the feet of Katie Stengel, who one-timed the ball into the back of the net for her 14th goal of the season.

The Seminoles equalized in the 85th minute when Jessica Price found Tiffany McCarty for her team-leading 16th goal of the season.
