CLEMSON, S.C. – In a match that was controlled by Clemson in terms of possession and scoring chances, 11th-ranked Boston College came out on top, 2-1, on Sunday afternoon at Historic Riggs Field. With the loss, the Tigers, who were receiving votes in last week’s United Soccer Coaches poll, dropped to 7-5 overall and 2-2 in ACC play, while the Eagles improved to 11-1 overall and 3-1 in the conference.
HOW IT WAS DECIDEDWith the match tied at 1-1, after receiving a pass from Sam Coffey, the Eagles’ Olivia Vaughn found herself in the middle of the field in a one-on-one situation with a Tiger defender. Vaughn, who scored both Boston College goals on the day, used her momentum to pass the defender and, after a scramble for the loose ball with Clemson keeper Sandy MacIver, found the net from 10 yards out in the 83rd minute of the match.
UP NEXTThe Tigers travel to Tallahassee, Fla. to face 10th-ranked Florida State on Thursday, Oct. 4. The match kicks off at 7 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex.
