CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson women’s soccer team defeated Drexel 3-0 on Thursday night at Historic Riggs Field in a game that was delayed an hour and fifteen minutes due to weather and began at 8:15 p.m. With the win, the Tigers improve to 6-0-1 and the Dragons fall to 1-5.

With four minutes left in the game, sophomore Emily Byorth was fouled outside the box, resulting in a free kick for the Tigers. On the free kick, Sophomore Claire Wagner netted her first goal of the year into the top left corner to put the Tigers up 2-0.  With 28 seconds remaining, Sophomore Paige Reckert got in on the scoring action off a cross from Horgan to extend the lead to 3-0. The goal was the second of the year for Reckert.
