Sept. 5, 2004

Box Score

CLEMSON, SC–Clemson was credited with an own goal at the beginning of the second half and the Lady Tigers defeated Richmond 1-0 in a women’s intercollegiate soccer match at Clemson, SC Sunday afternoon.

Clemson is now 4-0 on the year, while Richmond falls to 1-2. The Lady Tigers will play in the Furman Invitational on September 9 and 11. Clemson will play East Carolina and Kansas in the tournament.

The own goal occurred with 50:45 gone in the match. Clemson’s Paige Ledford took a shot and the ball came off the Richmond goalkeeper Kelly Kolker. The loose ball came off the Spiders’ defender Hilary Prince and the ball went into the Richmond goal.

“I expected this kind of game,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “We had a hard match Friday night with Furman while Richmond had a day of rest and that made a big difference in this game. I am proud of our team for coming out and playing hard in the heat and applying the pressure. To score on a own goal means you applied pressure and forced the action. Lindsay Browne did a great job today as did Allison Graham. I think Allison played her best game of the year. Paige Ledford is always reliable out on the flanks.”
