Clemson will play host to Gardner-Webb on Wednesday, October 24, at Riggs Field at 7:00 p.m.
“I was very pleased with the intensity we had when we first came out,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “We scored three goals right at the start. However I was concerned with the letdown we had. A lot of people played today and I am glad Dimelon Westfield had a hat trick today. This should give him confidence. Paul Souders played well in the midfield. We need to take care of business this week and have good practices. We play Gardner-Webb on Wednesday and Maryland on Sunday.”
