LeiLanni Nesbeth and her second-ranked Florida State Women’s Soccer teammates were crowned the 2021 ACC Champions after a 1 - 0 win over No. 1 Virginia.
Florida State took the lead in the 10th minute off a perfect shot by Clara Robbins, for her sixth goal of the season. She intercepted the ball off a Virginia throw-in and turned around and fired an absolute rocket from over 30 yards out into the top of the net over the outstretched arm of Virginia’s goalkeeper. It is the second straight season that Robbins has scored a goal in the ACC Championship game as she scored two last season against No. 1 North Carolina on her way to being named the ACC Tournament MVP.
Florida State won their eighth ACC Championship in the last 11 seasons with their ninth shutout of the year. The Garnet and Gold have won the ACC Title each of the last eight times they have played in it. This is also the second straight season that FSU won the ACC Championship by defeating the number one team in the country.
