[FLORIDA STATE-TEXAS TECH] Senior Tiffany McCarty’s golden goal in the 104th minute lifted Florida State past Texas Tech, 3-2, and into the round of 16 for the eight consecutive year on Friday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

McCarty’s game-winner came after classmate Casey Short found her in the center of the box 14 yards from the goal. McCarty turned and whipped a rocket into the right corner of the goal past the outstretched arms of Texas Tech keeper Victoria Esson.
 
“I’m just happy to move on to the next game,” McCarty said. “I’m a senior, so it flashes before your eyes. I kind of took a deep breath and I’m glad we’re on to the next round.”

Big 12 Rookie of the Year Janine Beckie’s second goal of the game for Baylor had tied the score at 2-2 in the 88th minute.

“I thought it was a hard-fought game tonight,” FSU coach Mark Krikorian said. “Texas Tech came in and competed favorably and our kids did as well -- some pretty good attacking and Tiffany created a great goal for us at the end and to be an All-American, that’s what it takes. Tiffany takes a lot of responsibility for our results and obviously Kelsey [Wys] in the back and it’s a pretty good pair. I thought that Tiffany’s quality showed around the box tonight.”
 
Texas Tech scored first on Beckie's goal in the 15th minute. The Seminoles tied the game in the 40th minute when midfielder Marta Bakowska-Mathews scored her second goal of the NCAA Tournament.

McCarty’s first goal of the game broke a 1-1 tie in the 66th minute after taking a pass from sophomore Dagny Brynjarsdottir.
