Fifth-Ranked Florida State Defeats Cougar Soccer
Sept. 6, 2009
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Jessica Price and Tiffany McCarty each scored two goals to lead No. 5 Florida State past Washington State 4-1 in nonconference women's soccer, Sunday.
Senior Kiersten Dallstream, a native of Fountain Hills, Ariz., scored her team-leading sixth goal of the season for Washington State (3-2-0).
Prince put the Seminoles (5-0-0) up 1-0 in the 13th minute on a header via a free kick. McCarty made it 2-0 in the 29th minute when she put home a rebound after Cougar sophomore goalkeeper Stephanie Phillips made the initial save on a Tony Pressley shot.
'Florida State is as advertised,' WSU Head Coach Matt Potter said. 'They pressured us in the first half and we defended well for the most part. They scored on a couple of set pieces.'
After McCarty' second goal increased the Florida State advantage to 3-0 in the 49th minute, Dallstream got the Cougars on the board with a chip from four yards out on the left side in the 65th minute.
Price capped the scoring when she took a pass from McCarty and found the back of the net on a crossing shot from seven yards out.
The Cougars return home to play BYU, Thursday, Sept. 10 at 3 p.m.
Senior Kiersten Dallstream moved into a tie for third in career goals at Washington State with 23...sophomore goalkeeper Stephanie Phillips made her season debut and recorded a career-high eight saves...four goals given up by Washington State are the most since a 4-2 loss to Arizona State, Oct. 14, 2005.
