ACC Women: Florida State aims for four in a row

Florida State, the No. 6 seed, remained on course for its fourth straight ACC tournament title as it scored less than four minutes into its semifinal against Clemson and held on to beat the Tigers, 1-0.

Kaycie Tillman and Malia Berkely set up Irish star Megan Connolly for her sixth goal of the season.
“I thought overall that our kids competed very favorably,” Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. “Clemson is a very good team and they have a lot of good players. You have to be prepared for the air game. I thought our back line did a reasonably good job of picking up those first balls, and then on the second balls, I thought we did a good job of picking those up as well.”

FSU enters Sunday's final against North Carolina with eight straight wins in ACC Tournament.
“Every time you go out you want to play, you want to compete, you want to give yourself a chance to win,” Krikorian said. “This is the youngest team we’ve had since I’ve been at Florida State. It’s a collection of little kids, but they’re not afraid to go out and battle, and that can serve them well.”
