Once again Jordynn Dudley swung her right foot and found a corner.

For the 13th time in her fabulous freshman season, the Florida State forward found the back of the net. Her 53rd minute goal allowed Florida State to see off Clemson in the national semifinals on Friday night.

Florida State won 2-0 to advance to its seventh national championship game. The Seminoles (21-0-1) are 90 minutes away from their first unbeaten season.

Kaitlyn Zipay’s thundering volley in the 38th minute opened the scoring. Clemson didn’t clear its lines after a Taylor Huff corner kick and Zipay fired home from about 16 yards away past Clemson keeper Halle Mackiewicz.

Clemson forced Florida State keeper Cristina Roque to make four first half saves. But, the Tigers only put one shot on goal in the second half. Clemson (18-4-4) lost to Florida State for the third time this year. Friday night, the Seminoles kept the high-powered Tigers from putting anything past Roque.

Florida State will play Stanford (20-0-4) for the national championship. Florida State is seeking its second national championship in the last three years – and fourth overall. Stanford is also one win away from its fourth championship.

The Cardinal eliminated Brigham Young 2-0 in the other national semifinal.

Monday marks the first time in the 41-year history of the NCAA women’s soccer championship that both teams enter the title game unbeaten.
