No. 10 Clemson Women’s Soccer Falls To No. 8 Florida 4-1

Nov. 3, 2001

Gainesville, Fla. — Casey Hamel and Abby Wambach each scored two goals as eighth-ranked Florida defeated the 10th-ranked Clemson Lady Tigers 4-1 in women’s soccer action in Gainesville, FL on Saturday night. Clemson falls to 13-4 on the season while Florida won its fourth straight match and improved its record to 14-3-1.

The Gators got off to a quick start as they scored two goals in the first five minutes of the match. Hammel scored less than a minute into the game on a 25 yard free kick and then at the 4:38 mark on a long shot with an assist from Andi Sellers. Abby Wambach then scored at the 26:43 mark of the first half to give Florida a 3-0 lead at halftime.

Deliah Arrington made the score 3-1 at late in the game on a ten-yard blast with an assist from Tricia Williams. The goal was the ninth of the year for Arrington, who is sixth in Clemson history in total points.

Wambach added an insurance goal for the Gators with less than five minutes to play on a short shot with an assist by Whitney Singer.

“Florida scored two incredible games in the first five minutes of the game,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “We don’t have too many game plans where you have to deal with being two goals down. I wish we could have responded better but we will have to learn from this and move on.”

Clemson’s next action will be on Thursday November 8 in the first round of the ACC Tournament in Winston Salem, NC.
