CARY, N.C. – Courtney Foster and Lindsay Browne both scored goals in 19th-ranked Clemson’s 2-0 win over N.C. State in a women’s Atlantic Coast Conference soccer match at Cary, NC Friday night.

With the win, Clemson improves to 6-3 overall, and 1-1 in the ACC. N.C. State falls to 6-1-2 overall, and 1-1 in league play.

Foster tallied the evening’s first goal at 40:19 on a breakaway and scored from 12 yards out on the right side to take a 1-0 lead into halftime.

Clemson’s Allison Graham started the play just inside the midline and fed a speedy Foster just above the box.

The Lady Tigers put away the insurance goal after a corner taken on the left side. After a scramble for the ball, Browne headed the ball into the net with 9:44 left in the match.

“In what was an overly physical game, I was proud of the class that the Clemson players displayed in the contest. We played extremely attractive soccer tonight, creating several goal-scoring chances. We played solid on the defensive end. Overall, it was a well-rounded performance and a good 2-0 victory on the road in the ACC.
