Box Score

CLEMSON, SC–Kimmy Francis scored the game’s only goal in leading Maryland to a 1-0 win over Clemson in a women’s Atlantic Coast Conference soccer match at Clemson, SC Saturday night.

With the win, Maryland improves to 5-3-1 overall and 1-2 in the ACC. Clemson falls to 7-4 overall and 2-2 in league play.

Stevie Dunning passed the ball to Francis from the left side. Francis sent a diagonal shot from 16 yards to the right corner of the net. It was Francis’ third goal of the season.

Clemson outshot Maryland 18-7. The Terrapins’ goalkeeper Nikki Resnick finished the match with six saves.

“I am disappointed in the loss tonight,” said Head Coach Todd Bramble. Give credit to Maryland, they keep finding ways to beat us. I thought in the first half we were missing something, but I could not put my finger on it. This was a tough loss and it was an opportunity for us to keep our momentum and to progress in the ACC standings. As a team we are extremely frustrated. We simply cannot put together good halves in the same game.”

Clemson will play at Virginia Tech on Wednesday, October 6, in the Lady Tigers’ next action.
