[NORTH CAROLINA-FLORIDA STATE] Top-ranked Florida State kept its perfect record intact Thursday night with a 1-0 win at No. 9 North Carolina thanks to Iceland international Dagny Brynjarsdottir's goal.

Despite being outshot 14-5 in the match, Florida State broke the scoreless tie in the 61st minute on a counterattack triggered when Jamia Fields stole the ball in midfield. She found a streaking Tiffany McCarty, who beat her defender to the end line before sending a pass back toward the middle of the 18-yard box, where Brynjarsdottir made a run into open space and one-timed a shot into the back of the net for her third goal of the season.

“Carolina is hard to play against,” said Seminoles coach Mark Krikorian. "They are so fast and strong. It’s a credit to our kids that we could come in and win a game that’s not really our style, but we stayed, we battled hard, we fought hard and created a heck of a nice goal.  We walk away with a good result on the road.  I mean any win on the road in the ACC is a good win; this is a real good win.”
 
Goalie Kelsey Wys made a season-high seven saves, none bigger than the one she made in the 85th minute when Crystal Dunn dribbled into the box on the right side, beating her defenders, but was denied by Wys on a diving save.

“Carolina is always a fun team to play against,” said Wys. “They have a different style than we are used to playing but during the week we prepared for them and I think we did a pretty good job of sticking to that game plan and making all our pieces fit together at the end of the day to get the victory.”

FSU, which registered consecutive victories over the Tar Heels for the first time in school history, is off to its best start in history and has not allowed a goal in its last 528 minutes of play.
