CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson women’s soccer team dominated Indiana, 4-2, on Sunday afternoon at Historic Riggs Field in the regular season home opener, thanks to two goals apiece by sophomore Mariana Speckmaier and redshirt senior Miranda Weslake. With the win, the Tigers improved to 2-2 on the young season, while Indiana slipped to 1-1-1.
HOW IT WAS DECIDED
Weslake’s first goal of the match, the Tigers’ third, was ultimately the game-winner for Clemson. The Beaufort, S.C. native carried the ball into the 18-yard box, pulling the Hoosiers’ keeper off her line. She ripped a shot that was stopped by the keeper, but deflected back to Weslake, who passed the ball back to redshirt freshman Courtney Jones. With the keeper out of the goal, Jones put a shot on target that was saved by the foot of an Indiana defender. Weslake was there for the put-back, burying the ball into an open net.
The Tigers next match is Friday, Aug. 31 when they host Villanova as part of Clemson Football and Clemson Athletics’ First Friday celebration. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Historic Riggs Field, and admission is free.
