Sept. 7, 2001

NORFOLK, VA-Paige Ledford and Rachel Gallegos both scored goals as ninth-ranked Clemson defeated Old Dominion 2-0 in a women’s intercollegiate soccer match at Norfolk, VA Friday night.

With the win, Clemson improves to 3-0 on the year, while Old Dominion slips to 1-2 on the year.

The two teams battled to a 0-0 halftime draw, with each side launching five shots. In the opening minutes of the second half, Lindsay Browne took a shot, and it rebounded off the Old Dominion goalkeeper, Tonya Dedmond. Ledford was there to put the loose ball into the net for her third goal of the season at the 50:00 mark.

A minute later, Gallegos scored from a pass by Heather Beem, giving the Lady Tigers a 2-0 advantage.

“This is the first game we had to play with adversity,” said Clemson Head Women’s Soccer Coach Todd Bramble. “The score was tied 0-0 at the half, but we responded well and scored two quick goals in the second half. We look forward to starting play in the ACC next week.”

Clemson will play at North Carolina on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next action. This is the ACC opener for Clemson.

Clemson goalkeeper, Katie Carson needs only two more saves to become the school’s all-time career leading in saves. She currently has 227 career saves and is one save behind Meredith McCullen who had 228 career saves during the 1994-97 seasons.
