Women’s Soccer Remains Perfect

Sept. 6, 2000

COLUMBIA,S.C.–The #6 ranked Clemson Lady Tiger soccer team won their fifth straight match as they defeated their in-state rival the South Carolina Lady Gamecocks 2-0 tonight September 6 in Columbia, SC. The Lady Tiger’s improve to 5-0 on the season while the Lady Gamecocks fall to 0-3 for the year.

Clemson’s 5-0 start ties the best start in school history, set by last year’s squad at the start of the 1999 season. Sophomore Deliah Arrington, last season’s team leader in points scored and goals, scored her first two goals of the season to lead the Lady Tigers. Arrington struck first at the 26:27 mark when she was assisted by freshman Lindsay Browne. Browne also assisted Arrington on her second goal with just under six minutes to go in the game.

Browne, Clemson’s leading goal scorer this season with four goals, could not keep her streak of four straight games with a goal. Had she scored tonight, it would have been her fifth straight game with a goal, tying Carmie Landeen and Nikki Tompkins who both had five straight games with a goal in the 1994 season.

Clemson goalie, Katie Carson, got her second straight shutout and third on the year, saving both of South Carolina’s shots. The Clemson Lady Tigers will play again this Sunday, September 10, as they travel to Tallahassee, FL to begin their 2000 ACC season as they take on the Florida State Lady Seminoles. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m.
