Box Score

CLEMSON, SC – The 25th-ranked Lady Tiger soccer team defeated Duke on Saturday night in their final game of the regular season. With the win, Clemson improves to 9-4-5 overall and 2-3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, while Duke falls to 8-4-6 (3-3-4 ACC).

Clemson took eight shots to Duke’s 10 and the Lady Tigers had five corner kicks to the Blue Devils’ seven. Lady Tiger senior goalkeeper Ashley Phillips recorded three saves and Duke keeper Allison Lipsher also posted three saves in the contest.

Elizabeth Jobe netted her fourth goal of the season, and what proved to be the game winner, on Senior Day. Jobe received the ball near midfield and dribbled it past a Duke defender before taking a long-range shot. The 27-yard boot went into the lower left corner of the net past the diving Lipsher to give the Lady Tigers a 1-0 lead.

“The last two times we have played on this field [against Florida State and Wake Forest], the performances were very similar to tonight,” noted Head Coach Todd Bramble. “Obviously, I’m pleased that tonight, the result went our way.”

“I am so happy for our seniors,” continued Bramble. “They all started the game and were major contributors tonight. It was great to see Elizabeth Jobe, a senior, get the game winner. It’s certainly an inspiration for our younger players. I’m happy for the seniors and proud of the entire team tonight.”

The Lady Tigers will travel to Lake Buena Vista, FL next week for the 2007 ACC Women’s Soccer Championships, which will be held November 7-11. Additional information about the tournament will be available on Monday.
