CLEMSON, SC – Cindy Mullinix scored early in the first overtime period giving Clemson a 1-0 win over Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament at Clemson, SC Friday afternoon.

Leigh Clark sent a free kick into the box from 24 yards out on the left. Mullinix redirected the pass from six yards out and sent the ball into the middle of the net, on the ground for her second goal of the year at the 91:24 mark. This was Clark’s fifth assist this season.

The Tigers’ goalkeeper Katie Carson had seven saves and registered her ninth solo shutout of the season. Kentucky’s goalkeeper Beth Wells had six saves for the Wildcats.

“I am very proud of our team,” said Clemson Head Coach Todd Bramble. “I am proud of the way we played and I think we played well on both sides of the ball. Kentucky is a great team and I am happy to get the win. This is one of the best games we played all year.”

Clemson will meet Florida State Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m. in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at the Lady Tigers’ Riggs Field.
