FSU survives

“"STILLWATER, Okla. -- Freshman Emma Koivisto found a great time to score her first career goal as she one-timed a long throw-in by Megan Campbell in the second overtime as No. 2 Florida State came from behind to defeat Oklahoma State, 2-1, Friday inside the Cowgirl Soccer Complex.

Trailing 1-0 after the 33rd minute, the Seminoles (3-0-0) finally found the equalizer in the 81st minute on a goal by senior captain Dagny Brynjarsdottir. She one-timed a rebound off a deflected shot by Kristin Grubka inside the left post to tie the match.

“We had some late heroics to equalize and then a golden goal which is kind of a nice way to end it for us,” Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian said. “But overall, I am quite encouraged. It is always difficult to go on the road and to come here in a tough environment is a credit to our kids. They did a great job tonight.”

The Noles almost capped off the come-from-behind victory in regulation when a header by Brynjarsdottir was saved off the line by Cowgirl defender Lauren Reyes.

Florida State came right out of the gates in the first overtime as a shot by Brynjarsdottir was saved by a diving Medina.

OSU (0-3-0) got a great look in the 93rd minute when the speedy Courtney Dike got loose in the Cowgirl attacking third. Her shot from the right side of the pitch deflected off a Seminole defender and went just wide of the far post.

Neither team could muster much offense in the second overtime until Campbell and Koivisto connected on the golden goal in the 105th minute.

Campbell heaved a long throw just inside the six-yard box that Koivisto ran in on, one-timing her shot into the back of the net for her first goal as a Seminole.

“That throw can create a bit of chaos and we know that Megan’s throw is dangerous,” said Krikorian. “She got it in there and it was nice to see Emma come in there and finish for us.”

Florida State finished the match out-shooting Oklahoma State, 38-5, including 21-1 in the second half and 6-2 in overtime. The Seminoles took 10 corners to just three by the Cowgirls.

OSU keeper Rosa Medina finished with a career-high 13 saves, while Cassie Miller finished with one save in 105 minutes.

The Seminoles return to action Sunday at Oklahoma for a 2 p.m. start.
