No. 9 Clemson Brings Another Ranked Opponent to Historic Riggs Field

No. 9 Clemson (7-1-1) will return to action on Sept. 29 as they host No. 16 Virginia Tech (9-1-0)  at Historic Riggs Field for a 1 p.m. game. 

About the Tigers

Maliah Morris netted her third goal of the year against the Seminoles to move her behind Mariana Speckmaier (10) and Renee Guion (9) for points. Similar to Virginia Tech, Clemson has had nine Tigers find the back of the net to start the season. However, one of Clemson’s biggest threats comes from the foot of Guion who has contributed nine assists through nine games. Guion is currently tied for the NCAA individual game-high for assists when she aided in four of Clemson’s goals against Coastal Carolina. 

As a team, Clemson has outshot opponents 142-61 while simultaneously dominating the attacking zone by leading opposition in corner kick attempts 62-25. Through their first nine games of the season, the Tigers have averaged 15.8 shots per game while holding teams to 6.8. 

Scouting the Hokies

After a perfect 8-0 non-conference record, the Hokies opened up ACC action with a win against Miami before falling 2-0 to in-state rival No. 1 Virginia. Currently, the Hokies have had nine separate players account for their scoring with four netting multiple goals on the year. Emily Gray has led the way for Virginia Tech with 10 points through 10 games despite sharing the team lead for goals (4) with Nicole Kozlova. Most notably, goalkeeper Mandy McGlynn has started every game for the Hokies with seven shutouts on the year while only conceding four goals.
