Final Stats

CLEMSON, SC-Allison Graham scored the game’s lone goal as Clemson defeated Virginia Tech 1-0 in an Atlantic Coast Conference women’s soccer match at Clemson, SC Thursday night.

With the win Clemson improves to 6-4-2 overall and 1-2-1 in the ACC. Virginia Tech falls to 5-7-1 overall, and 1-4 in league play.

With 10:45 left to go in the match, Allison Graham sent a 24-yard free kick into the right corner of the net for her team-leading fifth goal of the season.

“Before the restart, Lydia Vandenbergh made me aware that the goalkeeper was not in position, so I quickly shot the ball and fortunately it went in the goal,” said Graham. “I thought my shot was going to be short, but it had enough.”

“It feels real good to have our first conference win after so much frustration,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “It’s a big relieve and I feel a sense of joy for our players. We defended well, and we get what we can. I think we passed up to many shooting chances tonight. Julie Bolt was the player of the game. As a freshman, she is fast and very fit. She did a lot for us on both sides of the ball.”

Clemson will play at Virginia on Sunday, October 9, at 2:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next action.
