Oct. 2, 2001

CLEMSON, SC – Lindsay Browne scored one goal and had one assist in leading Clemson to a 3-0 win over South Carolina in a women’s intercollegiate soccer match at Clemson, SC Tuesday night. With the win, Clemson is now 6-1 overall, while South Carolina is now 5-2-2 this season. Clemson is ranked ninth by Soccer America and 11th in the NSCAA poll.

Clemson scored at the 15:48 mark into the game. Browne took a shot from 12 yards out from the left. The shot deflected off of a South Carolina defender and Tricia Williams knocked in the ball from close range near the left post. This was Williams’ second goal of the season.

The Lady Tigers scored their second goal of the evening at the 30:10 mark when Browne sent a shot past the South Carolina goalkeeper, Carolyn Ortega near the left post. This was Browne’s fifth goal of the season.

Clemson’s third goal occurred at the 33:05 point into the match. Leigh Clark took a corner kick and sent the ball into the box. Deliah Arrington headed the ball into the net in the upper right corner of the goal. This was Arrington’s sixth goal of the season. The Lady Tigers have won six of the seven matches played between the two schools, and Clemson has outscored the Lady Gamecocks 26-4 in the seven games played.

Tonight’s match is the fifth shutout of the season for the Lady Tigers. Clemson has not given up a goal in the last 205 minutes of play. “I am happy in the fact that we came out with a fast start,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. (Clemson scored all three goals in the first half.) “However we are going to have to learn to be sharp for the entire game. I am glad we were able to score two goals off of set pieces tonight. That was a nice dimension to our attack tonight. Again, we are going to have to learn to put two great halves together. I am very happy with our defense. Our defensive scheme allows us to be successful.”
