CARY, N.C. (AP) -- Jamia Fields led Florida State to the NCAA Women's College Cup final, scoring twice in the second half in the Seminoles' 3-2 victory over Virginia Tech on Friday night.

   Florida State (23-1-3) will face UCLA on Sunday.

   Fields scored in the 57th minute and snapped a 2-2 tie in the 83rd minute to help the Seminoles (23-1-3) reached the championship game for the second time in program history.

   Kristin Grubka also scored for Florida State.

   Ashley Manning and Ashley Meier scored for the Hokies (19-5-3), who lost for the third time this season to the Seminoles.

   Fields scored the winning goal on a lofted shot from the right flank from outside the box. Virginia Tech goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts tracked the ball as it approached the net, leaping to try to save it. The ball hit off the left post, deflected off Colpitts and trickled across the goal line.
