[FLORIDA STATE-FLORIDA] Sophomore Kristin Grubka scored in the 10th minute, and No. 2 Florida State held on to blank No. 15 Florida, 1-0, in front of a packed house of 2,243 -- the second largest crowd in school history.
 
“I don’t know if you could top the atmosphere here tonight," said FSU coach Mark Krikorian. "I was so thrilled that the crowd came out and supported our team against a very, very good Florida team. That was some high level soccer on display tonight.”
 
Grubka took a throw-in from Jessica Price in the 10th minute and flicked a header on goal from about 12 yards out that bounced once before finding the inside of the right post.

Price was credited with the assist on the play, her third assist of the season, to move within two of tying Mami Yamaguchi atop the Seminole record books.
 
“It’s always interesting when Jessica throws it in because it’s such a long throw-in,” said Grubka.  “I’m always trying to get around the defenders that are on me. I flipped it, hoping it was going to the back post, and luckily I turned around, and the back post player hadn’t kicked it out.”
 
Kelsey Wys turned in her second straight shutout performance as she made five saves to become the all-time leader in shutouts at Florida State with 22.
 
“Kelsey was once again tremendous in goal for us tonight,” said Krikorian.  “She was reading the ball well and made some great saves to keep the Gators off the scoreboard.”

A Gator equalizer by Havana Solaun was called off for offside early in second half.
 
“The offsides was very close,” Florida coach Becky Burleigh said. “For the other ones, we need to have a bit more composure. We had awesome chances. Ultimately, that final execution was the difference in the game.”
