Golden Goal Lifts #1 UVa to 1-0 Overtime Win Against #3 FSU
A record 3,894 fans saw #1 UVA beat #3 FSU 1-0
The top ranked UVa women's soccer team topped #3 Florida State 1-0 in overtime Sunday at Klockner Stadium.
Senior Annie Steinlage scored the golden goal in the 91st minute for her first career goal to hand FSU its first loss of the season.
The victory also clinched Virginia's first ACC regular season title.
The team broke another school record with 3,894 fans at Klöckner Stadium.
"It's amazing. I couldn't have expected or its beyond what I expected," said Steinlage. "It's pretty amazing. It's a ton of fun, especially today with a record setting crowd, its like the game of your dreams you know. Especially having my team run out is the kind of moment your going to remember the rest of your life."
UVa Junior Midfielder, Morgan Brian said, "There were so many people here and I'm pretty sure we all appreciate it and recognize that there were a lot of people. The energy in here helped us definitely win that game."
With the win, the 'Hoos remain perfect on the season with record of 18-0 (12-0 ACC) while the Seminoles fall to 14-1-3 (9-1-2 ACC).
"Florida State is an excellent team, they're very organized," said UVa head coach Steve Swanson. "I think it goes to show you that a game like that, when there's not a lot of scoring can be a real exciting game from start to finish."
The Cavaliers will look to be the first team to complete a perfect ACC schedule since North Carolina in 2006 when they host rival Virginia Tech on Thursday at Klockner.
