Clemson Notes:

  • Clemson is coming off a solid week, picking up a 1-0 upset victory over No. 10 Florida State on Thursday, Oct. 4 and followed it up with a 2-0 shutout road victory over Pitt on Sunday, Oct. 7.
  • The road victory over No. 10 Florida State was Clemson’s first upset over a top-10 team on the road in nearly two years, as the Tigers defeated No. 6 Duke on Oct. 27, 2016 on the road in Durham, N.C.
  • The win over the Seminoles was Clemson’s first since Nov. 18, 2001, when it won 1-0 in an NCAA Tournament Second Round match at Historic Riggs Field. It was also the Tigers’ first win in Tallahassee since a 3-2 victory on Sept. 10, 2000, and only the third win in Tallahassee in program history.
  • Miranda Weslake netted the lone goal against the Noles in the 21st minute off a free kick that junior defender Dani Antieau sent into the box.
  • Junior goalkeeper Sandy MacIver earned ACC Co-Defensive Player of the Week as she earned a pair of shutout road wins at No. 10 FSU (1-0) and at Pitt (2-0). She registered a season-high six saves in the Tigers upset of the Seminoles, while keeping Florida State, which entered the match averaging 2.25 goals per game, scoreless for just the third time this season. MacIver is 7-3-0 on the season with six shutouts. She has 25 saves in 919 minutes in net for Clemson, a goals against average of .59 and a save percentage of .806.
  • The Winsford, England native missed the first four matches of the season as she was in France, where she represented England’s women’s national team and earned a bronze medal at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
  • Antieau picked up another four points later in the week as she netted her first and second goals of the season in the 2-0 win at Pitt. Senior defender Sam Staab assisted on both goals with a long throw in and a corner kick.
  • With Staab assisting on both of Antieau’s goals, she picked up her sixth and seventh assists of the season. She now has a total of 29 assists for her Clemson career, surpassing All-American Deliah Arrington (27 assists) for the fifth place slot in the school record book in that category.
  • Weslake is now tied with Mariana Speckmaier for the team lead in goals, as she picked up her sixth of the season. The two also lead the team in scoring with 13 points apiece, each with six goals and one assist.
  • Starting defender Staab was the only collegiate player called up to the U.S. U23 Women’s National Team for the 2018 Nordic Tournament that took place from Aug. 29-Sept. 3. The San Diego, Calif. native scored the team’s game-winning goal in the 1-0 win over Norway to secure the USA’s first-place finish.
  • Saturday’s match against No. 11 Duke will mark the sixth ranked opponent this season that Clemson has faced and the fifth in its last six matches against a ranked opponent inside the top-11.
