Florida State reaches Women's College Cup final
CARY, N.C. (AP) -- Jamia Fields led Florida State to the NCAA Women's College
Cup final, scoring twice in the second half in the Seminoles' 3-2 victory over
Virginia Tech on Friday night.
Florida State (23-1-3) will face the winner of the second semifinal between
UCLA and Virginia.
Fields scored in the 57th minute and snapped a 2-2 tie in the 83rd minute to
help the Seminoles (23-1-3) reached the championship game for the second time
in program history.
Kristin Grubka also scored for Florida State.
Ashley Manning and Ashley Meier scored for the Hokies (19-5-3), who lost for
the third time this season to the Seminoles.
Fields scored the winning goal on a lofted shot from the right flank from
outside the box. Virginia Tech goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts tracked the ball as it
approached the net, leaping to try to save it. The ball hit off the left post,
deflected off Colpitts and trickled across the goal line.
