No. 6 Florida State Holds Off BC In ACC Opener

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – scored twice and and each found the back of the net once but it wouldn't be enough as No. 6 Florida State held off the Boston College women's soccer team on Thursday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The back-and-forth offensive battle marked the ACC opener for both squads.

For the ninth consecutive game, the Eagles opened the scoring. And while FSU responded to Smith's 11th-minute score with two unanswered, Mitchell's fourth goal of the season in the 40th minute sent the game into halftime tied, 2-2. The Seminoles would score first in the second half but it would be Smith with the response this time, heading home her seventh of the season.
