The Florida State University women's soccer team scored three goals in the first half and held on for a 3-3 tie in overtime with UCF at the UCF Soccer Complex Saturday night. Florida State, ranked No. 11 in the most recent NSCAA poll, held a 3-2 lead until the 87th minute when the Knights' Hanna Wilde tied the score on a shot from 20 yards out. The two teams then played two scoreless overtime periods and the match ended in a draw.
Florida State, which is unbeaten in its last four matches, is now 5-2-1. The Knights, who are unbeaten in five of their last six games, are now 4-2-2. The Seminoles outshot the Knights, 24-16, and held a 9-5 advantage in corner kicks.

She now has 13 goals and five assists for a single-season career-high 31 points. Yamaguchi has now totaled at least one point in all eight of Florida State's game this year.
The University of Maryland women's soccer team played to a 1-1 tie with Kent State Saturday night at Ludwig Field.
The result gives the Terps a 4-1-2 record, while the Golden Flashes now stand at 2-4-1 on the season.
Maryland dominated the entire game, out-shooting Kent State 33-5, including 17-0 in the first half. But the Flashes were opportunistic, scoring on their first shot of the game, which did not come until the 58th minute. Kimberly Dimitroff took a through ball from Caitlin Hester and slipped a shot into the lower right corner of the Terrapin goal.
The Terps responded with a consistent attack spearheaded by redshirt junior Nataly Arias, who led Maryland with 10 shots, junior forward Aimee Bresani and freshman forward Annesia Faulkner.
