GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State redshirt junior forward Tiffany McCarty has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week after her performance in two winning efforts last weekend.

McCarty scored seven points on a three goals and an assist in leading No. 5 FSU to a pair of victories, including a road win over intra-state rival and No. 8 Florida.

McCarty had a hand in all three goals as the fifth-ranked Seminoles went on the road in front of 4,671 fans to beat the Gators, 3-2. McCarty assisted on the first goal of the game and then was a force to reckon with in the second half, scoring both of FSU's goals - including the game-winner in the 72nd minute. The deciding goal came less than five minutes after the Gators had tied the game at two.

After recording just one shot in the first half which hit off the crossbar, McCarty tallied five in the second half including three on goal and another off the post. The Laurel, Md., native outshot the Gators 5-4 in the second half.

McCarty scored her third goal of the week in FSU's 4-0 win over Mercer on Sunday. McCarty is the Seminole leader in goals (7), points (15) and shots (25) on the year. She has posted a .600 shots on goal percentage through the first eight games and is tied for the team lead with two game-winning goals. FSU wrapped up its non-conference schedule on a six-game win streak, posting wins over three ranked opponents, including two on the road.
