[UCF-FLORIDA STATE]Icelandic international Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored in the 26th minute on the only shot Florida State would put on target, and the No. 5 Seminoles held on for a 1-0 win at No. 10 UCF.
“The match wasn’t beautiful," Brynjarsdottir, who scored on a header off Jessica Price's throw-in, said, "but we did what we had to do to get the victory."
Kelsey Wys made four saves, including a great tip save in the 82nd minute on a long-range shot from UCF’s Kristina Trujic, to preserve the win.
“Tonight was a crazy game,” said Wys. “We did well to finish it out. It was great to have a game like this at the beginning of the season. We made some mistakes but learned from them over this tough three-game road test.”
The shutout was her first of the season and the 21st of her career, one away from becoming the school’s all-time leader in that category.
“Kelsey Wys had a tremendous game for us,” said FSU coachMark Krikorian. “She had good positioning and made some great saves tonight.”
