The Seminoles have advanced to the semifinals of the ACC Tournament for the 14th time. They currently hold a 9-3-2 (.750) record in the semifinals. Florida State and Virginia have met up eight times in the ACC Tournament as the two teams have split the match-ups 3-3-2.
FSU and Virginia did meet up earlier in the season in Tallahassee. No. 1 Virginia defeated No. 5 Florida State 1-0 in double overtime. The game remained scoreless for 103 minutes until Meghan McCool earned her ninth goal of the season. Florida State outshot Virginia 14-10 but could not get one in the back of the net.
A season ago the two teams met in the 2018 ACC Tournament semifinal and the Noles came away with a 3-1 win. Deyna Castellanos scored two goals for the Noles and Kristen McFarland capped off the scoring for the Seminoles.
The winner of the Florida State and Virginia semifinal takes on the winner of North Carolina and NC State on Sunday at noon. The match will be live on ESPNU.
