Florida State and BYU advance to NCAA women’s soccer national championship

NCAA Championship: No. 4 BYU vs. No. 1 Florida State | Monday, Dec. 6 | 8 p.m. ET | ESPNU

After an exciting set of semifinal matches, the NCAA Women’s Soccer National Championship is set.

Florida State shutout Rutgers 1-0 to clinch back to back appearances in the national championship. Despite a late push by Rutgers, Jaelin Howell‘s lone goal in this semifinal matchup was enough to clinch Florida State a spot in the national championship. Florida State goalkeeper Cristina Roque had four highlight reel saves that preserved the clean sheet for the Seminoles.

BYU defeated Santa Clara 3-2 in penalty kicks to advance to its first-ever national championship in school history. After 110 scoreless minutes, this game was decided in a shootout. BYU went down early but came back to win it after Santa Clara’s final penalty kick bounced off the post.
