Box Score

CLEMSON, SC-Jamie Gilbert and Anne Morrell both scored goals midway in the second half in leading second-ranked North Carolina to a 2-1 win over Clemson in a women’s Atlantic Coast Conference match at Clemson, SC Saturday night.

With the win, North Carolina improves to 12-0-1 on the year and 5-0 in the ACC, while Clemson falls to 8-5, overall and 3-3 in league play.

Clemson took an early 1-0 lead at the 6:48 mark as Courtney Foster scored on a breakaway. Lindsay Browne sent a pass springing Foster open on the right side inside the box. Foster took an 18-yard diagonal shot that went just inside the left post for her third goal of the season.

North Carolina tied the score at the 66:40 mark. Jamie Gilbert sent a shot into the goal from 18 yards out after collecting the rebound on a blocked shot she attempted. Kindall Fletcher was credited with the assist.

The Tar Heels took a 2-1 advantage in less than two minutes later (68:14). Anne Morell scored from 23 yards just outside the arc.

“This was one of the best start to finish performances against North Carolina that we have had since I have been at Clemson,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “We kept attacking and I am proud of our performance. I thought we did a great job in limited their shot quality. I thought we played well in all phases and it could have easily been a 2-1 win for Clemson. It was like two heavy weights slugging it out and the clock ran out on us.”

“I have a lot of respect for Todd Bramble and his program,” said North Carolina Head Coach Anson Dorrance. “Clemson’s Allison Graham is one of the best players in the league. We are glad to escape here with a win. I thought Clemson played an outstanding game.”
