A clash of the two teams picked to finish atop the ACC in the preseason on Friday night in Tallahassee saw the sixth-ranked UNC women’s soccer team edge out the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles 1-0.

Freshman forward Rachel Jones broke the scoreless tie with her first career collegiate goal in the 29th minute, while the Tar Heel defense held the Seminoles (7-1-1) without a single shot on target throughout the entire match.

The win ended a two-match losing streak for the Tar Heels (6-2-1), who dropped a pair of matches in California last week against No. 12 Santa Clara and No. 1 Stanford.

It also marks the third consecutive meeting between the teams won by UNC.
