Seventh-Ranked Clemson Women’s Soccer To Host 17th-Ranked FSU

Sept. 16, 2001

Clemson, SC – The seventh-ranked Clemson women’s soccer team will host 17th-ranked Florida State on Monday at 5:00 at Historic Riggs Field. The game had been originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon but was rescheduled for Monday because of the terrorist tragedies that occurred in our country earlier this week.

Monday’s match will be the first ACC match of the season for both Clemson and Florida State. In their first three games of the season, the Lady Tigers have posted three shutouts and a 3-0 overall record. The Seminoles enter Monday’s contest with a 2-2 overall record that includes losses in their last two games to top-five opponents Portland and Santa Clara. Clemson is 6-1 all-time against Florida State including last season’s 2-0 victory over the Seminoles in the third round of the NCAA Tournament at Historic Riggs Field.

Florida State defeated George Mason and Loyola in their first two games of the season before losing to third-ranked Santa Clara and fourth-ranked Portland in their last two games in the Wake Forest Nike Invitational. The Seminoles are led by Cindy Schofield who has two goals and six points on the season.

The Lady Tigers have the top-rated scoring offense and defense in the conference and have outscored their first three opponents by a 10-0 margin. Clemson sophomores Heather Beem and Lindsay Browne lead the team and the ACC with seven points while freshman Paige Ledford’s three goals are tied for tops in the league. Senior goalkeeper Katie Carson has registered three solo shutouts on the season and with two saves against Florida State on Monday, she can break the school record for most saves in a career with 229.
