Florida State vs Santa Clara Preview

A 3-0 shutout in penalty kicks over No. 13 Virginia brought top seed Florida State to the championship, but it still feels as though the team has something to prove. The ‘Noles beat Duke in a similar fashion on PKs, so they have been living on the edge throughout the tournament without a truly convincing win since the Sweet 16.

Florida State’s freshman keeper Cristina Roque has been a huge reason why her team is still in contention for the national championship. Roque kept Virginia from scoring during regulation, and she came away with a 3-0 result after stopping two of the three PKs taken against her.

“Just knowing my team is behind me no matter what, coming out and playing the best I can, Roque said after the win over Virginia. “We just have to show it on the field every time and I think we’ll be successful.”

“I thought when we needed her to stand tall and have those big moments she sure did,” FSU manager Mark Krikorian said about Roque. “She showed confidence and was reassuring to her teammates.”

On the other side, Santa Clara has been relishing the role of underdog, knocking off No. 2 seed North Carolina in a well-played 3-1 victory May 13. Izzy D’Aquila, Kelsey Turnbow and Skylar Smith scored for the Broncos, who have been the hotter team offensively entering this match.

Freshman keeper Marlee Nicolos has surrendered eight goals in 11 games for the Broncos, who aren’t ready for their Cinderella story to end yet. “I’m very proud of our group and the effort,” Santa Clara head coach Jerry Smith said, via Soccer Wire. “You have to look at the spaces and find where you can put the ball. You’ve got to be able to have a little heart in what you’re doing. It’s how we do things and I thought there were parts of the game where we did that really well. And when you’re playing a Tar Heel team, they’re competitive. That’s about as competitive a group as you’re going to play against so you have to be prepared to get into some tussles. I thought our players handled that pretty well today. I’m really proud of my team.”

Florida State has not scored a goal in regulation since the 69th minute of the Sweet 16, so the Seminoles will likely be looking to go after Nicolos early and often. This game could very well come down to whether or not Santa Clara’s freshman goalie can withstand what will assuredly be a relentless attack from FSU.
