CLEMSON, S.C. – The top-ranked Florida State Seminoles (11-0-0, 4-0-0 ACC) defeated the Tigers 4-1 on Friday night at Historic Riggs Field.
Just two minutes into the game, Clemson (7-4-0, 2-2-0 ACC) got on the board first. After Renee Guion lofted a high corner kick into the box, the ball ricocheted off a Florida State defender and into the net. However, the Seminoles’ potent offensive attack responded with a pair of goals in the 23rd and 27th minutes to take a 2-1 lead into the break.
The Tiger offense generated a few valiant opportunities early in the second half, but couldn’t find an equalizer. In the 62nd and 64th minutes, Florida State found the back of the net twice more to put the game out of reach.
“Our team played hard tonight and was on the front foot from the get-go,” said Head Coach Eddie Radwanski. “We had a number of chances to make it 2-2 but came away with nothing. FSU punished us on a couple mistakes, but our kids kept at it. There were some positive takeaways from tonight’s match.”
Next up, Clemson hosts the Virginia Tech Hokies at Historic Riggs Field on Thursday at 8 p.m. Live game coverage will be available on ACCNX.
