Clemson Notes:

  • The Tigers (2-1) suffered their first loss of 2016 by a score of 1-0 at seventh-ranked West Virginia on Friday night.
  • Against the Mountaineers, senior Kailen Sheridan posted seven saves in goal, earning her first start after returning from Rio, where she won an Olympic bronze medal as an alternate for Canada’s women’s national team, earlier in the week.
  • Five different players have scored the Tigers’ five goals so far this season – Mackin, Catrina Atanda, Paige Reckert, Claire Wagner and Jenna Weston.
  • Freshman midfielder Julie Mackin was named ACC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Aug. 15-21 after scoring her first career goal at Auburn, and then adding two assists in the win over the Bulldogs.
  • Mackin and senior Jenna Weston are tied for the early team lead in scoring, with four points apiece.
  • Freshman goalkeeper Sandy MacIver started the Tigers’ first two matches of the season, earning wins over Auburn and Georgia. MacIver posted four saves in the two wins, as well as the clean sheet against Auburn.
  • Head Coach Eddie Radwanski is now in his sixth season at the helm of the Clemson program. Radwanski was named the NSCAA’s Southeast Region Coach of the Year in 2015.

Elon Notes:

  • The Phoenix are 1-2 on the season, coming off of a 1-0 home loss to UNC Greensboro on Friday night. Elon previously defeated College of Charleston (2-0 on Aug. 19) and fell to High Point (2-1 on Aug. 21), both at home.
  • Three players, Tori Baliatico, Grace Bennett and Sydney Schilling, have scored Elon’s three goals on the season.
  • Taylor Mohr has started all three matches in goal for the Phoenix in 2016, allowing three goals while picking up 11 saves and one solo shutout.

Series Notes:

  • Clemson and Elon have met just one time previously in women’s soccer, a 5-0 victory for the Tigers in Elon, N.C. on Aug. 29, 2014.
  • In that contest, then-sophomore Catrina Atanda scored two goals, while then-freshman Shannon Horgan tallied four assists, a figure which is tied for first in program history in assists in a single match.
