#1 Florida State vs. Boston College Quarterfinal Breakdown


#1 Florida State vs. Boston College

The match between conference rivals is a rematch of Florida State's 4-3 win in Tallahassee on October 3rd. That match saw the Eagles blow a 2-0 halftime lead. The postseason has been an entirely different story for Boston College, however. The Eagles have outscored their opponents 10-2 through three games, including a 4-1 win over Illinois in the Sweet 16. Along the way, McKenzie Meehan has broken the school's season record for goals, as she has scored one in each of the three tournament games for a season total of 21 goals so far.

Florida State (21-1-3) is headed back to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship for the ninth year in a row, extending the nation's longest active streak. Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored a pair of goals for the second straight match as the Seminoles set a school record with their 21st victory of the season following Saturday's win over Colorado. In the team's three games (5-0 win over South Alabama, 3-1 over Ole Miss and 4-0 over Colorado), the Seminoles have outscored their opponents 12-1. Florida State wasted little time cracking the scoreboard on Saturday when Brynjarsdottir scored the fastest goal of the season just a minute and 19 seconds into the start of the match.

Interesting BC-FSU Notes:

• FSU leads the overall series, 10-1-2.

• BC's lone victory came during the 2012 regular season when the Eagles defeated a then-No.1 Florida State team, 3-2. Kristie Mewis scored the game-winning goal with 10 minutes to play.

• There is a one goal differential in nine of the 13 games played between the two teams.

• In the 2004 NCAA Tournament, the two teams played to a 0-0 double overtime match with BC advancing on penalty kicks.
