[ACC: Women] In the biggest comeback win at home in 12 years, No. 5 Florida State came back from 2-0 down after 15 minutes with four second-half goals for a 4-3 win over Boston College.

“In the first half, besides making a mental mistake or two, I thought that we played some pretty good soccer,” Florida State coach Mark Krikorian said. “But against good teams, you can’t make mistakes and we paid the price twice tonight. We are not going to be able to survive if we continue to make mental mistakes. The good news is that I felt there was an awful lot of good soccer that went on through the course of the match."

FSU's 26-game unbeaten streak at home looked to be in jeopardy early as the Eagles jumped out to a two-goal lead through the first 15 minutes of play on goals by McKenzie Meehan 117 seconds apart.

But after keeper Kelsey Wys made an outstanding diving save to prevent Meehan from recording a hat trick in the 51st minute, the tide seemed to turn in favor of the Seminoles.

Carson Pickett got the Seminoles on the board with her first goal of the season in the 56th minute, and Irish international Megan Campbell created the equalizer in the 65th minute as her long throw-in went off a BC player from inside the 6-yard box and into the back of the net for an own goal.

Less than eight minutes later, Michaela Hahn to Jamia Fields teamed up to feed Berglind Thorvaldsdottir for the go-ahead goal, her team-leading sixth goal of the season. FSU’s lead was short-lived as Zoe Lombard tied the match at 3-3 in the 78th minute, but the Seminoles went ahead again in the 82nd minute on a penalty kick by Marta Bakowska-Mathews.

NOTRE DAME-WAKE FOREST. No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 11 Wake Forest played to a 1-1 tie in a game at South Bend delayed by lightning, like many games on Thursday, for nearly 90 minutes.

The Irish and Demon Deacons connected just 56 seconds apart in the final quarter hour of regulation for the game's only goals.

Karin Simonian
gave Notre Dame the lead, hammering home a cross from freshman forward Kaleigh Olmsted. But Wake Forest equalized less than a minute later when Kendall Fischlein found herself unmarked at the back right post and drove a cross from Katie Stengel high into the net from 10 yards out. It was the first goal the Irish allowed in more than 521 minutes of action.

-- Katie Yensen scored 44 seconds into overtime to give No. 14 Virginia Tech a 1-0 win over Clemson. The Hokies improved to 5-1-1 in conference play, while the Tigers are still over .500 with a 3-2-1 mark.
