CLEMSON DEFEATS N.C. IN FIRST ROUND OF ACC TOURNAMENT— Beth Keller registered three goals in the first half to lead third-seeded Clemson to a 4-1 victory over six-seeded N.C. State in the quarterfinal match of the Atlantic Coast conference Women’s Soccer Tournament at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. With the hat trick, Keller tied the ACC Tournament’s single game record for goals and points. The second-team All-ACC player scored the first two goals of the match booting in a 15-yard shot off the pass from Sheri Bueter at the 9:04 mark, then knocking in a header off of a free kick from Diane Akin at the 38:33 mark. N.C. State’s Kelly Blaggie retaliated just two minutes later with a goal from the top of the box to pull the Wolfpack within one goal. But Keller intercepted a pass and connected on a 25-yarder to put the 14th-ranked Lady Tigers up 3-1 entering the half. Bueter completed Clemson’s scoring effort with a 10-yard shot off a rebound at the 61:59 mark.
