CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s soccer team fell to #8 Boston College in its final home game of the 2009 season on Sunday afternoon at Historic Riggs Field. The game was the final home game for the Tigers’ five seniors: Lily Boleyn, Jennifer Ficklen, Molly Franklin, Lindsey Jackson and Katie Vogel.

The loss dropped the Tigers’ record to 3-14 overall (0-9 ACC.) The eighth-ranked Eagles improved to 13-2-1 overall and 5-2-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference with the 5-0 win.

The Eagles scored three first-half goals, in the 11th, 36th and 45th minute. Freshman Victoria DiMartino scored two of the goals and assisted on the third. Boston College netted its fourth goal in the 54th minute and its fifth on a penalty kick in the 65th minute of play.

“We came out today wanting to honor our five seniors. Each one of them has put a lot of time into this program over the past four years and they have meant a lot to the program,” said Head Coach Hershey Strosberg.

“It is unfortunate that our effort in the first half today was not indicative of our efforts in the first halves of the last two games. You just can’t come out and play with fear against a team like Boston College. A good team will bury you for the mistakes you make, and we experienced that today.”

Clemson will travel to Chapel Hill, NC for its final game of the 2009 season on Thursday, October 29. The game between the Tigers and the second-ranked Tar Heels will begin at 7:00 PM at Fetzer Field.
