Clemson Defeats Wake Forest 2-1

Oct. 17, 2002

Heather Beem and Deliah Arrington both scored goals in leading 16th-ranked Clemson to a 2-1 win over 11th-ranked Wake Forest in an Atlantic Coast Conference women’s soccer match at Clemson, SC Thursday night.

With the win, Clemson improves to 9-5 overall, 3-2 in the ACC. Wake Forest falls to 11-3-1 overall and 2-1-1 in league play. Clemson is ranked 16th by Soccer America, while the Deacons are ranked 11th by Soccer America and 15th by the NSCAA.

Clemson took a 1-0 advantage on Beem’s goal at the 7:30 mark. Sara Turner sent the Ball to Paige Ledford. Ledford crossed the ball to Beem who sent a shot in the net from 10 yards out. This was Beem’s eighth goal of the season.

Wake Forest scored 1:13 seconds later. Alena Thom scored on a 35-yard looping shot from the middle. Katie Johnson was credited with the assist. The Lady Tigers scored the game-winner just before the half at the 43:03 mark. Lindsay Browne sent a pass to Arrington who scored from 12 yards out on a diagonal shot from the left. This was Arrington’s 10th goal of the year.

“I have a lot or respect for the Wake Forest program,” said Clemson Head Coach Paige Ledford had one of her best games tonight. Allison Mitchell continues to be one of the unsung heroes in the midfield for us. I told my team at the half to keep attacking and don’t play conservative. We did a better job of consistent attacking in tonight’s game.”

Clemson will play host to Maryland on Sunday, October 20, at 1:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next match.
