Mami Yamaguchi, a forward for the Lady Noles, said, "It was good because we played good today and we had the big crowd and I didn't expect that many people today and it motivated us."
That motivation turned into a quick start for the garnet and gold. They went into the half with a 3-0 lead over the Canes.
FSU's soccer coach Mark Krikorian said, "It's a big advantage when you come out in the first half and establish a couple it gives you a bit of an advantage. Then the other team really has to come out and get after you and you can spread them out a little. I thought our group played pretty well.
Sanna Talonen, a forward for the Noles, said, "I think we are getting better and better and we can find each other pretty well.
Now is the time for the Noles to shine as they keep those National Championship hopes alive with a 9-4-3 record they head out on the road for two more conference match-ups against Wake Forest and Duke.
