Oct. 27, 2007

Box Score

CORAL GABLES, FL – The 24th-ranked Lady Tiger soccer team advanced to double overtime for the seventh time in eight games on Saturday night in Coral Gables, FL, with the game resulting in a 1-1 tie against #25 Miami. Clemson is now 8-3-5 overall and 1-2-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, while Miami is 9-4-4 and 4-2-2 in the league.

Clemson took 15 shots to Miami’s 18 and the Lady Tigers had four corner kicks to the Hurricanes’ 11 in the contest. Goalkeeper Ashley Phillips recorded 10 saves on the night and now has 304 for her career. She needs just one save to tie and two to break the Clemson career record of 305 saves set by fellow Lady Tiger All-American Katie Carson from 1998-2001.

Senior Nuria Zufia put Clemson on the board in the eighth minute with her sixth goal of the season. The ball was crossed from the left side of the field to Zufia where she was able to knock it into the net from in front of the goal. Sophomore Molly Franklin and junior Julie Bolt assisted on the play.

Miami knotted the score at 1-1 with less than seven minutes left in regulation when Beverly Goebel headed the ball into the net off a corner kick by Jessica Wyble.

“It is disheartening to have the lead in the game with less than 10 minutes to go and not be able to win it,” said Head Coach Todd Bramble. “Miami certainly gets the credit for finding a way to tie the score.”

“I have never been involved in a season like this [with so many ties] in my entire coaching career,” he noted. “This is uncharted territory. I have to believe that we are one of the most experienced teams out there because we have played more minutes than anyone else.”

The Lady Tigers will return home next week for their final two regular season ACC contests. Clemson will play host to Florida State on Thursday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. and Duke on Saturday, November 3 at 7:00 p.m. at Riggs Field.
