Maryland Defeats Clemson 3-2 in Women’s Soccer

Oct. 20, 2002

Jen Biscoe scored with 6:33 left in regulation in leading Maryland to a 3-2 win over Clemson in an Atlantic Coast Conference women’s soccer match at Clemson, SC Sunday afternoon. Katie Ludwig had a goal and an assist in the match for the Terrapins. With the win, Maryland improves to 10-5 overall and 3-2 in the ACC. Clemson falls to 9-6 overall, and 3-3 in league play.

Clemson scored first at the 19:33 mark. Allison Mitchell scored off of a corner kick by Heather Beem. This was Mitchell’s first goal of the season. Maryland tied the score with 40:48 gone in the match. Audra Poulin scored off the corner kick by Simone Dekker.

Clemson took a 2-1 advantage at the beginning of the second half (46:15). Beem converted on a penalty kick after a hand-ball foul was called on a Maryland defender in the box. This was Beem’s ninth goal this year.

Maryland tied the score at the 62:37 mark as Katie Ludwig droved down the left side uncontested and sent a shot from 12 yards out into the net. Biscoe scored the winning goal off a saved shot. Ludwig took a shot from close range that was saved by Clemson goalkeeper Lauren Heos. Heos was unable to control the save and Biscoe scored off the rebound at the 83:27 mark.

“I am very disappointed in the result,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “I thought we were heading in the right direction with the win over Wake Forest on Thursday. I was hoping we would keep up the momentum. We had a letdown today. We seemed very flat. When we went up 1-0, I went to our bench so we could rest some people in the last part of the first half, but we gave up a goal. We again went up 2-1 and couldn’t protect the lead. We just didn’t have what it takes today. Maryland is a good team. We didn’t match their determination or desire. They deserved to win.”

Clemson will play at N.C. State on Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next action.
