TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The fifth-ranked Florida State soccer team controlled the ball from start to finish as the Seminoles (9-1-0, 2-0-0 ACC) defeated Louisville (4-5-0, 1-1-0 ACC) by a score of 6-0 in their ACC home opener on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Junior forward Cheyna Williams had the first multi-goal game of her FSU career with two goals in the first three minutes of the second half to break the game open 

Williams’s first goal came from a great assist by senior Jamia Fields as she powered through her defender to maintain possession and get a cross into the eight-yard box that was easily put away to give FSU a 2-0 lead. Just over a minute later, Williams fed junior Carson Pickett out wide on the left side and Pickett delivered a great ball into the box that Williams was able to put away through traffic in front of the keeper. Williams now has six goals in 2014.

Redshirt sophomore Berglind Thorvaldsdottir scored for the sixth time in the last four games at 85:14, finishing a shot after a nice passing combo from Debbie Hahn and Morgan Kennedy to extend the FSU lead to 5-0. It was Thorvaldsdottir’s seventh goal of the season.

The Seminoles next take to the pitch on Sunday, Sept. 28 as they welcome No. 2 Virginia (10-0-0, 2-0-0 ACC) to the Seminole Soccer Complex for a 4:00 p.m. first kick. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPNU.
