Krikorian: 'The better team won'

[BOSTON COLLEGE-FLORIDA STATE] No. 1 Florida State lost for the first time this season when it dropped a 3-2 decision to Boston College, conceding three unanswered goals to Kate McCarthy, Stephanie McCaffrey and Kristen Mewis that matched the total number of goals the Seminoles had allowed in their first 14 games.

“I thought the better team won tonight,” said FSU coach Mark Krikorian. “Boston College was better than we were; they competed harder than we did and I don’t think that we were as good passing and receiving the ball and keeping the ball as we needed to be.  It’s quite simple, you need to go out and you need to compete to show that you are prepared to battle in games of this magnitude and when you have the ball, you need to value the ball.”

Florida State got on the board first in the 37th minute on a goal by Kristin Grubka off a corner kick, but BC found the equalizer just before the half as McCarthy one-timed a low liner inside the left post.

Victoria DiMartino and McCaffrey helped set up the goal, which snapped FSU’s consecutive scoreless minute streak at over 934 minutes.

FSU was unlucky not to go ahead in the 58th minute when a header by Tiffany McCarty caromed off the left post.
 
McCaffrey gave the Eagles their first lead of the match in the 67th minute as she one-timed a cross from DiMartino for her ninth goal of the season.
 
Boston College upped its lead to 3-1 in the 80th minute on an outstanding effort from Mewis on a shot just underneath the crossbar from 25 yards out.
 
Jessica Price made it 3-2 in the 83rd minute
 
Oct. 18 in Newton, Mass.
Boston College 3 Florida State 2. Goals: McCarthy (McCaffrey) 41, McCaffrey (DiMartino) 67, Price 83; Grubka (Pickett) 37, Price 83.
