The Eagles scored early in the second half in the 54th minute. Tara Luciana scored her fifth goal of the season with an assist by Caitlin Burke.

“The score is not indicative of our effort and our performance in the match,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “We did not respond to their direct and physical style of play. When teams play this way, we need to respond better and quicker and we will definitely work on responding better.”
