Brynjarsdottir rescues Seminoles with pair of goals
[VIRGINIA TECH-FLORIDA STATE: Women] Icelandic international Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored both goals to give No. 3 Florida
State a 2-1 win at No. 7 Virginia Tech that ran its unbeaten streak to 17 games.
The second goal broke a 1-1 tie in the 87th minute. Brynjarsdottir put away a beautiful cross from Carson Pickett for her team leading ninth goal of the season and fifth game-winner.

Brynjarsdottir picked up a loose ball to give the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage in the 16th minute.

“We walk away feeling good that we came into Blacksburg leaving with three points,” added Krikorian. “Quite frankly, the better team did not win tonight.
Virginia Tech was better than we were for a vast majority of the game. But credit to our kids for hanging in there, being resilient and continuing to compete and finding a way to win. Through the
course of play today we weren’t as good as we needed to be.”
