Box Score

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Senior Michelle Kmiotek made a career-best 17 saves in goal, but No. 6 Florida State used two late second-half goals to sink the Jacksonville University women's soccer team, 3-0, on Tuesday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Kmiotek's 17 stops give her 127 for the season and 316 in her career, which ranks six all-time in Atlantic Sun Conference history.

"That was one of our stronger defensive efforts," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "It's hard to move forward against a team like the Seminoles, but we were able to frustrate them by making them take a lot shots outside the box. I'm very confident in our defense heading into the conference tournament next week."

The Seminoles (13-2-2) gained a 1-0 lead in the first half when Katrin Schmidt added her second goal of the season at the 29-minute mark of the first half.

Mami Yamaguchi extended the Seminoles advantage by scoring her fifth goal on assists by Onnie Trusty and Colette Swensen in the 68th minute. Kirsten van de Ven scored her first goal of the season at 73:57 to secure the 3-0 win.

Junior Emilie Howland managed the Dolphins (9-9, 4-5 A-Sun) only shot in the match.

The Dolphins will have a week of rest before traveling to face No. 4 seeded East Tennessee State at the A-Sun Tournament on Thurs., Nov. 2, in Kennesaw, Ga. The match is slated to start at 7 p.m.
