Sept. 19, 2002

CLEMSON, SC – Dimelon Westfield scored two goals and Fabio Tambosi scored one goal and had one assist in Clemson’s 7-0 win over Gardner-Webb in a men’s intercollegiate soccer match at Clemson, SC Thursday night.

With the win, Clemson improves to 3-1-1 overall, while Gardner-Webb falls to 0-4-2 this season. Clemson is ranked 10th by Soccer America, 14th in the NSCAA poll and eighth by

Westfield now has a team-leading four goals on the year. Kenneth Cutler, Paul Souders, Brett Branan, and John David Brooks also scored one goal each for the Tigers.

“We played Clemson soccer tonight,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “We pressured the ball, we moved the ball around, and got the ball wide. We had a good, overall performance tonight. We are going to have to learn to be consistent in our play whether we play at Clemson or on the road. We moved Tambosi to an attacking midfield spot, and that helped us tonight. We had some players come off the bench and play well for us in the match. For the first time this year, our depth came through for us.”

Clemson will play host to N.C. State in an Atlantic Coast Conference match Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at Riggs Field in the Tigers’ next action.
