Clemson vs. North Carolina Postgame Quotes

Nov. 6, 1999



Coach Tracey Leone “What a game! We’re really proud of our performance and toughness. It was a great game for the conference.”

“We played hard, but there’s obviously some disappointment.”

On goal keeper Kate Carson: “She played a phenomenal game. We couldn’t have asked for a better performance. I think (the winning goal) was just bad judgement. Those are hard balls to judge, especially with so many people there.”

On Carolina’s Lorrie Fair: “She gonna cause problems anywhere she plays. I felt she would play center mid. (Her playing back) may have had something to do with Deliah Arrington, her speed.”

North Carolina

Lorrie Fair On playing defense: ” It’s the same defense as last year, so we know each other. I felt a little shaky because it’s been a while since I’ve been back there. But things are starting to click.”

Elizabeth Ball On the game-winning goal: “I was just trying to bend it in so we’d have a chance. I usually try to find the two target players. On that one, I was just trying to bend it.”

On her reaction: “I don’t think I thought anything. I was just jumping.”

Coach Anson Dorrance “The Clemson game plan was outstanding. Their kids fought hard, and that kid (Arrington) is for real. She’s gonna be a thorn in our side for three more years.”

On the overtime: “Clemson stretched us, and that puts Wake Forest in a good situation for Sunday. Hopefully we can recover in time.”
