CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson women’s soccer team dominated Liberty, 5-0, on Sunday afternoon at Historic Riggs Field, thanks in part to two goals by sophomore co-captain Kimber Haley. With the win, the Tigers improved to 5-3 on the season, while Liberty fell to 1-6.
HOW IT WAS DECIDED
In the 23rd minute of play, Haley drove the ball down the field, setting up a 15-yard shot for herself, after beating a Liberty defender. The ball hit the back post and took a Tiger bounce into the back of the net to give Clemson a 1-0 lead, which it would not relinquish.
Clemson hosts its third straight home match on Friday, Sept. 14 as the team opens Atlantic Coast Conference play against the Miami Hurricanes. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. at Historic Riggs Field, and will be followed by the Clemson men’s soccer team taking on Syracuse at 7:30 p.m.
HEAD COACH EDDIE RADWANSKI QUOTE
“I felt it was a good performance today, particularly coming back on a quick turnaround from Friday’s game, and with it being such a hot day. Part of our team focus coming into this game was on our response after playing really well on Friday against West Virginia, but not getting the result. We wanted to have a bit more focus on the result, and also tweak a few things in order to be more dangerous. Our team really responded. It was great to see some different players score, with Kimber getting two, Sam and Alana both scoring a goal, Jackson netting her first collegiate goal. We had a great opportunity to play a lot of people today, and everyone stepped on the field and made a positive contribution.”
