Clemson, S.C. – Fresh off two wins against the College of Charleston, the No. 9 Clemson women’s soccer team (8-4-0, 5-4-0) gets set to host their first of three home games against SEC opponents as Auburn (5-4-3, 3-3-2) makes the trip to Historic Riggs Field. The game is set for a 2 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, March 6th.
This season, the Tigers have been a top performing team when playing on home surface, securing an undefeated mark thus far with four wins to show for it. The Tigers’ defense has been a core asset in this field, only conceding one goal across these games while the high-powered Clemson offense has slotted 10 goals of their own.
Throughout the all-time series, Clemson has held the advantage over Auburn, recording a 7-1-1 record against the squad with four of the matchups coming when the Tigers were led by Eddie Radwanski. The most recent showing in 2017 came out in Clemson’s favor with a double-overtime victory with goals from Jenna Polonsky and Mariana Speckmaier. Clemson has outscored the opposing Tigers 24-6 in their nine all-time matches while boasting a 4-0-0 record when the two sides meet in the Upstate.
Opening the spring with a 5-0 performance over Kennesaw State, Auburn enters the match against Clemson coming off a scoreless draw with LSU. Seven of the 10 goal scorers for Auburn have only recorded one goal on the season as they are led in points by freshman midfielder Anna Haddock who has tallied a goal and seven assists for nine points in 2020-21.
On the home side, Clemson has shown versatility in offense with 13 players recording a point through 12 games.
