Clemson Defeats Duke 1-0 In Overtime In ACC Women’s Soccer

Oct. 5, 2001

CLEMSON, SC-Tatum Clowney’s successful penalty kick in the overtime period lifted Clemson to a 1-0 win over Duke in an Atlantic Coast Conference women’s soccer match at Clemson, SC Friday night.

Clemson is ranked ninth by Soccer America and 11th in the NSCAA poll. The Lady Tigers are now 7-1 overall, 2-1 in the ACC. Duke falls to 4-5 overall, 0-3 in league play.

After a scoreless 90 minutes of play, the game went to sudden death overtime. Early in the first overtime period, Clemson’s Sarah Turner took a shot from 15 yards out. The ball hit off of Clemson’s Tricia Williams and the ball went over the goal.

However, a Duke defender was called for a hand-ball in the box and the Lady Tigers were awarded a penalty kick. Clowney’s shot went in the upper right center of the goal.

This was Clowney’s second goal of the season. Clemson will play at Furman on Tuesday, October 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next action. “We did a great job overcoming injuries and winning this match,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “Without Dee Arrington and Heather Beem, this really hurts our attack. We didn’t give up and we kept plugging away. We didn’t get frustrated and we kept our composure. Finally we

got a break we needed and we were successful.”

“This was a big win for us,” said Clemson’s Tatum Clowney’s. “Duke is a great team. I think we played well in the first half, but not as well in the second. When I went to mark for the penalty kick, I felt relaxed, and I did not hesitate. I knew where I wanted to hit the ball.”
