Nesbeth & Florida State Advance In NCAA

November 18, 2023 | 0 Comments

Leilanni Nesbeth and her Florida State Women’s Soccer team claimed a 1 – 0 victory over Texas A&M in an intense and physical game at the Seminole Soccer Complex. FSU has now made the Round of 16 in the past seven seasons and 20 out of the past 22 seasons.

FSU controlled possession early in the match, but it was the Aggies who were able to threaten first as Mia Pante’s header just went off the top of the woodwork and was eventually cleared by the Seminoles. FSU didn’t record a shot until the 32nd minute and had their best look in the 39th minute when Lauren Flynn flicked a ball with her heel that just went wide of the goal. The teams went into the half locked at 0 with the Aggies holding a 4-3 shots advantage.

FSU came out of the half and got some great looks from both Taylor Huff and Onyi Echegini in the 50th minute. FSU continued to threaten and finally broke through in the 55th minute. Beata Olsson placed a perfect ball via a header to Dudley from about 30 yards out. Dudley took three touches to collect herself and beat the two defenders in front of her and struck it past the goalie for her 11th goal of the season which is tied for fourth most goals in school history by a freshman.
