The Florida State soccer team clinched the sixth-seed in the ACC Tournament with a 5-5-0 record and 15 points this season. The Seminoles will face third-seeded North Carolina in the quarterfinals tomorrow after at 1:00 p.m.
The Tar Heels closed their regular season with 19 points and a league record of 6-3-1. UNC defeated FSU at home 2-0 in the regular season.
Sunday’s quarterfinal match-up will be the 11th meeting between Florida State and North Carolina in the ACC Tournament, according to seminoles.com.
“When you go and play at Carolina, it is always going to be a tough game,” head coach Mark Krikorian told reporters. “We played them earlier this year at our place and I don’t think we had our best performance on that day. They took advantage of it and capitalized on a couple mistakes that we made. We know that they are going to be a good team. They have certainly won their share of games over the course of time and it will be a tough first round test for us.”
The Tar Heels are 10-0-0 against the Seminoles in the league tournament including 4-0-0 when facing FSU in the first round. Sunday’s match marks the first time since 1999 that these two schools will face-off in the opening round of the ACC Tournament.
