FSU had their exhibition with Texas.

Aug. 14, 2011

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Texas Longhorns dropped a 2-1 decision to the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles in an exhibition match at the Seminole Soccer Complex on Sunday evening

With the Longhorns’ trailing 1-0, Taylor Knaack threaded a pass between a pair of defenders to a sprinting Hannah Higgins. After receiving the thru ball, Higgins had a one-on-one vs. the keeper and beat her from 16 yards out with a shot inside the left post. The equalizer came with 26:34 on the clock.

The match appeared headed to overtime before the Seminoles tallied the game-winner with 9:22 remaining. Kristin Grubka delivered a cross that was deflected by UT goalkeeper Ava Vogel, but Janice Cayman collected the carom and put it in the goal for the go-ahead score.

Florida State drew first blood midway through the first half. Tiana Brockway sent a corner kick into the penalty box. Tori Huster collected the offering and sent it goalward where Kassey Kallman deflected it into the back of the net, giving the Seminoles a 2-1 lead in the 25th minute of play.

Vogel made seven saves for the Longhorns, going the distance in net. Kelsey Wys made two saves for Florida State in 90 minutes of action.

Florida State held advantages in shots, 21-11, and corner kicks, 9-3.

Texas opens up regular-season action on Friday when the Longhorns host the Loyola Marymount Lions in a 7 p.m. contest at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

Some notes from FSU's Game Notes write up. Looks like a great challenge coming to Merlo field.

"WHO’S BACK AND WHO’S NOT IN 2011
BACK...
• The Seminoles return nine starters and 14 letterwinners from last year’s squad that advanced to the quarterfi nals of the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive year and for the seventh time in the last eight seasons.
• FSU returns its top three scorers from last year including Janice Cayman (23 points), Tori Huster (19) and Casey Short (13), while Tiffany McCarty and Jessica Price, one of the most prolific scoring duos to take the field under the direction of head coach Mark Krikorian, return to the pitch after missing the entire 2010 campaign due to injuries.
• Of the 14 letterwinners returning for the Seminoles in 2011, each has made at least one career start. Nine started at least 18 or more games a season ago, while Janice Cayman (22), Kassey Kallman (22), Toni Pressley (22), Casey Short (22), Kelsey Wys (22), Tori Huster (21) and Tiana Brockway (20) started every game they played in 2010.
• Florida State returns 71.5 percent (93 of the 130 points) of its total scoring from last year including four student-athletes who registered double-digit points and five who recorded a game-winning goal.
• When it comes to depth, look no further than the Seminole defense where the Garnet and Gold return fi ve student-athletes (Tiana Brockway, Ines Jaurena, Kassey Kallman, Toni Pressley and Ella Stephan) with tremendous playing experience in the backline including all four starters from 2010. Pressley and Kallman lead the way after All-America campaigns a season ago.
GONE...
• The Florida State midfield will look a little different in 2011 without the services of four-time All-ACC honoree and four-year starter Amanda DaCosta and three-year starter Rachel Lim.
• Between DaCosta and Lim, the two combined for 37 starts a season ago tallying 10 points each.
• DaCosta made school history as the first, four-time All-ACC honoree in school history earing first team honors in 2008 and 2010 and second team accolades in 2007 and 2009.

Sunday will be interesting. FSU appears to have a lot more of its team returning, and will have the (presumed) advantage of having already played a "real" game against the Beavers on Friday. Is anyone going down to Corvallis for that one?

I'm heading down...

I think you have to weigh the advantage FSU will have of having a real game under their belts with the disadvantage that they will be playing with one day's rest. They have a lot of players, so they might be able to manage that OK.

Hopefully OSU will give them a test

Are there fireworks this game?

Anyone want to make an attendance prediction? Might be sparse with classes not in session yet.

I'm not expecting fireworks since there are no new freshmen to "wow" yet.

The OSU-FSU game will be interesting. OSU returns 10 starters from last year and has a great defense. They are physical, similar to the UW Huskies, but they also have some speed in their front line. the OSU-FSU game looks like it could be a strong defense vs. a strong offense.

While I'm somewhat biased about the Beavers, my opinion is a lot of people are somewhat overlooking them. This is not the team from 3-4 years ago, this is a veteran team that is capable of taking it to everyone on their schedule. My prediction is September 11 will go a long way to determining if a regional is potentially in Portland or in Corvallis. Very Happy

A reminder...

There is no admission if you are going down to the USU-FSU game.

They are asking for a donation of canned food for Community Outreach.

Halftime at the OSU -FSU game.

Traffic was bad, so we got here partway through the half.

What we saw looks pretty even.

FSU didn't play Mscarty and Pressley in the first half. They are lined up for the start of the second, though.

About seven minutes into the second half, FSU's Macarty scores 1-0

Mucking around in the six yard box and sinker it in after a free kick.

Right after that OSU had a chance but didn't convert.

The final was 1-0 FSU. well fought but not very entertaining game. Mcarty and Pressley made a difference When they came on in the second half ( being held out for Sunday?)- particularly Pressley. she was the left back and totally shut down an avenue of attack that was pretty successful for OSU in the first stanza.


But neither side organized a particularly effective ground game. it was punt over the top and hope. Let just hope FSU didn't learn too much from the game for Sunday.

one thing FSU did do pretty well was exploit some runs right up the middle if they were unchallenged. we'll have to do better than OSU managed if we expect to win Sunday.

if there is a weakness for FSU, i'd say possibly the central defense. it might be the place to try and disrupt. it would take a well coordinated UP short passing game to do it, though. hope UP has been doing the short passing drills.

Swap the "O" for an "F" in the first line. I'm sure it was late night reporting.

FSU is a worthy foe as Pilot Nation heads to Merlo for the opening game. I've been ina "purple haze" this summer and am now ready to pay attention in a big way to UP soccer. Better start learning the new names and numbers!

At the Half, the Pilots are up 2-1 thanks to 2 Foxhoven shots; the first to the upper left and a PK after Capelle was taken down from behind.

After a miscommunication lead to McCarty getting around DeYoung.

FSU was providing solid D so this should be an interesting second half.

From the streaming side of things, the tracking camera is now atop the press box thereby allowing the corners to be shown. Plus replays!

Adam Linnman is now joined by Angela Harrison, a goalkeeper from 96-2000 and Assistant SID for the 2000-2001 year.

Thus far, she has been a solid color commentator, providing some insights and wondering if two McCluskies are a great idea. The BS in journalism does not hurt her cause, either.

Tsao is their halftime guest and is her confident self. She gave a favorable review to Cruz and promoted her Liverpool Grad school for a degree in Sports Biomechanics. For now, she has decided to delay the soccer career. When one considers the value of education, I can't blame her.

I can hear the Drum Squad much of the time, so kudos to the Alumni and local students!

Light years better than last week's. Think what another week of practice will do.

I was wondering about the spine of the team this year and I think it'll be fine. Colohan at DM did well. I especially like Foxhoven at CAM. She's good at finding the forwards and taking it herself. We saw both tonight. Kassi, Olivier, and Nelson all did well aside from the mixup on the goal. They certainly had to work hard all night.

As for the golaso, Ninja Pizza called it Rapinoe-esque (either Pinoe).
