Florida State coach Mark Krikorian earns 300th win with the Seminoles
CLEMSON, S.C. – Top-ranked Florida State (11-0) won their 14th straight ACC game, 10th straight road game and 21st straight regular-season game with a 4-1 victory over Clemson (7-4). It also marked head coach Mark Krikorian’s 300th win with the Seminoles.
The Garnet and Gold have also gone without a loss in the first 11 games of the season for the fourth time in program history and improves its road record to 44-15-8 since 2013.
For just the second time all season, the Seminoles let up the first goal of the game. It came in the third minute off of a Clemson corner kick that bounced off a Seminole into the goal.
The Seminoles were not down for long as they tied it up in the 18th minute on a goal from Kirsten Pavlisko, her third of the season. She made a run in from the right side of the box into some traffic on the border of the six-yard box. Pavlisko fended off three Clemson defenders to tie the game at one.
Less than five minutes later, FSU took the lead with a goal from Jenna Nighswonger. It was Nighswonger’s third goal of the season as well and was assisted by Kristina Lynch and Beata Olsson. It was Nighswonger’s 10th point in just four games of ACC play.
