No. 3 Florida State defeated No. 6 Virginia Tech 1-0 on Sunday in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on a 36th minute goal from Dagny Brynjarsdottir. It’s the second ACC title for the Seminoles, who also won the conference in 2011.
Virginia Tech was shut out for just the second time this year and had few chances in the first half. Things opened up for the Hokies in the final 15 minutes, but they were unable to find a way through the Seminoles’ defense.
Brynjarsdottir also scored both goals when Florida State beat Virginia Tech on Oct. 21 in Blacksburg, Va.
“We know them better,” FSU coach Mark Krikorian said after the game. “When you’ve played someone before, you kind of get a better look at them.
Now Florida State turns its attention toward the NCAA tournament and a sure No. 1 seed.
Here’s the All-Tournament Team:
Kassey Kallman FSU center back (MVP)
Kelsey Wys FSU GK
Kristin Grubka FSU center back
Dagny Bryjarsdottir FSU MF
Isabella Schmid FSU outside back
Jazmine Reeves VT forward
Kelsey Loupee VT MF
Murielle Tiernan VT forward
Katie Yensen VT MF
Morgan Brian UVa MF
