Six different players scored goals for FSU, while junior Jenn Naylor (Riva, Md./St. Mary’s) netted two.

Freshman Christine Fitzgerald (Gaithersburg, Md./Gaithersburg) netted the second goal for the Bobcats in the 25th minute off an assist from sophomore Jackie Donovan (Hollidaysburg, Pa./Hollidaysburg Area).
Donavon played the ball across the box where she found Fitzgerald all alone on the back post. Fitzgerald tapped the ball into the open net for a 2-0 FSU lead.
