Jamaica’s senior Reggae Girl, Jody Brown recently scored a brace to help the Florida State University (FSU) women’s soccer team to clinch another national title.
The final match, held at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina, saw FSU dominate with a resounding 5-1 victory over the previously unbeaten Stanford team.
The showdown between the two undefeated teams lived up to its billing, but it was Brown and her FSU teammates who emerged as the champions.
Brown, who has been a pivotal force in FSU’s soccer program, scored in the 30th and 62nd minutes, sealing her legacy as a two-time national champion, following her instrumental role in the team’s 2021 triumph.
The match got off to a tentative start with both teams feeling each other out.
However, FSU quickly asserted dominance, scoring two goals in a span of 29 seconds to close the first half with a commanding lead.
Jordynn Dudley converted a penalty in the 29th minute, setting the stage for Jody Brown’s breakaway goal, which she calmly fired home.
While Stanford managed to pull one back with Maya Doms’s powerful effort in the 52nd minute, FSU maintained control.
Beata Olsson extended FSU’s lead before the hour-mark, and she later played a crucial role in setting up Jody Brown for her second goal of the night.
The Stanford defense was unable to contain FSU’s midfield pressure, leading to Onyi Echegini capitalising on the opportunity in the 85th minute to secure the 5-1 victory.
