“This was a fast-paced and physical game,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “Both teams had their chances early. We scored early, then Deliah’s goal broke their spirit late. It was the most physical game we have played all year. I am proud of the team. Now we will just have to wait and see where we are seeded in the ACC tournament.”
