Seminoles Women's Soccer opens ACC tournament with win

The Florida State Seminoles women's soccer team won their ACC tournament quarterfinal game thanks to a goal and two assists by midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir.

The Florida St. Seminoles women's soccer team won their ACC tournament quarterfinal game against the Boston College Eagles 4-0 thanks to a goal and two assists from Dagny Brynjarsdottir. The Seminoles starting midfielder, who scored one minute into the game with a header inside the right post, had missed the last three games because of her commitment to her national team.

In an interview with Brian Miller of Tallahassee.com, Brynjarsdottir said that she played harder because the Seminoles had lost two games while she was away:

"It felt good," said Brynjarsdottir. "I felt like I had to do my thing because they lost two games while I was away. I felt bad about it so I just tried my best."

The Seminoles now advance to their semifinal game on Friday against the Virginia Cavaliers. In their last meeting, the Seminoles won 1-0 on Oct. 14 thanks to an overtime penalty kick goal by Ines Jaurena. The teams also met in last season's ACC tournament semifinals, which was won by the Seminoles while they were on their way to winning their first ACC title.

Midfiielder Tiana Brockway scored a second-half goal and forward Tiffany McCarty added two more goals, one in the fifth minute and one in the 70th minute to conclude the scoring.
