CLINTON, SC – The Clemson women’s soccer team won its first road game of the 2011 season on Sunday afternoon, defeating Presbyterian College by a score of 8-0 at Martin Stadium in Clinton, SC.

Sherry struck again in the 42nd minute, this time with the assistance of freshman Jennifer Bass. Sherry’s second goal gave Clemson a 5-0 lead heading into halftime.

Less than six minutes into the second half, Elder converted on a penalty kick for her second goal of the day.

Sarah Beth Anderson tallied five saves and Jordan Broadway posted one in goal for the Blue Hose.

“This was a good collective effort by the team,” said Head Coach Eddie Radwanski. “The week of training allowed us to work on some things, and it was nice to see the team implement those things into the game. When we keep things simple, it makes the game easier.

“The girls showed a lot of confidence in front of the goal today, and that led to some good goals being scored. It was nice to see a number of players getting on the score sheet. Overall, it was a positive day for the team. Tomorrow, it is back to work for next week’s games.”
