FSU soccer moves to face No. 9 Michigan in the Elite Eight


Florida State University's Gabby Carle (16) dribbles the ball during a game between FSU and Pepperdine during the third round of the NCAA women's soccer tournament at the Seminole Soccer Complex in Tallahassee, Fla. Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021.

The road to Santa Clara still goes through Tallahassee.

A Sweet 16 home matchup on Sunday afternoon provided the stage for the No. 1 Seminoles to showcase why they continue to be one of the best teams in the nation. The ’Noles (19-1-2) scratched to hold on to an early 1-0 lead by sophomore Jody Brown, ending No. 19 Pepperdine’s historic program run.

Winning has become an expectation for longtime FSU women’s soccer head coach Mark Krikorian, but the two-time NCAA Champion is still able to recognize greatness from opposing teams.

“I think that we showed a pretty resilient nature today,” Krikorian said. “Our kids competed and fought through the course of the game. But Pepperdine gave us all we could handle, that’s for sure… Watching them play here live, I’m an even bigger fan today than I was yesterday.”
