TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Behind two goals from Carson Pickett and a four-point performance from Megan Campbell, top-seeded Florida State (19-1-3) rolled to a 5-0 victory over South Alabama (14-6-3) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Friday night inside the Seminole Soccer Complex.
The Seminoles scored three first half goals, all in the first 21 minutes, to advance out of the first round of the tournament for the ninth consecutive season.
Pickett put Florida State on top early scoring the first of her two goals on the night in the ninth minute one-timing a cross from Berglind Thorvaldsdottir from about six yards out to give the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage. Her second goal came just a minute and nine seconds into the second half when a cross from Thorvaldsdottir was deflected back toward the top of the box by South Alabama keeper Melissa Drish. Pickett was there for the rebound one-timing a low-liner inside the right post for her first career multi-goal game.
