Women's Soccer Turned Back By FSU's Second-Half Barrage
Nov. 4, 2001
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -
Florida State 1 4 5 Jacksonville 1 0 1
The Jacksonville University women's soccer team got on the board early in the match, but 24th-ranked Florida State struck back with five unanswered goals to hand JU a 5-1 non-conference loss in its regular-season finale Sunday at Ashley Sports Complex.
The Dolphins (9-8-1) scored on their first attack when Michaelene Cadiz (Lutz, Fla.) found Erika Chapman (Bradenton, Fla.) unmarked at the top of the box. Chapman then sent a rocket over the head of FSU keeper Kerry York and off the crossbar before it rebounded down and into the net. The goal came 8:38 into the match and marked Chapman's fifth goal of the season, while Cadiz notched her first assist of the year.
However, FSU (13-6) answered just 17 seconds later. Cindy Schofield made a run down the right side before finding Maren Vik Edvansen in the box for the header and equalizer. The goal was Vik Edvardsen's fifth of the season, while Schofield picked up her eighth assist. The Dolphins regrouped on defense and sent the match into the half tied, 1-1.
The second half belonged to the Seminoles as they scored four goals to put away the match. In the 59th minute, Kristin Boyce knocked in a header on a cross from Meredith Jones just 1:08 after the pair had entered the match. In the 77th minute, Summer Corum found Schofield at point-blank range on the right side for her team-leading 15th goal and a 3-1 FSU lead. FSU tacked on a pair of unassisted goals by Jenny Garcia and another by Camie Bybee late in the match.
JU goalkeeper Stephanie Fowler (Seffner, Fla.) recorded a season-high nine saves in the loss.
The Dolphins are the fourth seed in this weekend's Atlantic Sun Conference Championship and will play fifth-seeded Georgia State in the first round Thursday at 7 p.m. in Orlando.
