Tigers Dominate Terriers Monday
SPARTANBURG, S.C.(CU SID) — The Clemson women‘s soccer team beat the Wofford Terriers by a score of 5-1 Monday night Sept. 7, 2015 at Snyder Field. Salma Anastasio who netted two goals in the match led the Tiger‘s in scoring. Alana Hockenhull broke the ice for the Tigers in the 20th minute when a shot by Abby Jones rebounded off the keeper and found Hockenhull‘s foot to put the Tigers up 1-0. It was her second goal in two straight games. In the 29th minute Salma Anastasio found the net for the first time in the game on a long pass from Claire Wagner that was chipped over the keeper to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead. Wofford scored in the 32nd minute to cut the Tigers‘ lead in half but Katie Sprouse responded with her first goal of the season on a long throw from Samantha Staab that she flicked over the keeper. Anastasio found the net again in the 62nd minute to extend Clemson‘s lead to 4-1 on a pass from Catrina Atanda. In the 84th minute Samantha Staab connected with Miranda Weslake who headed the ball into the net for the first goal of her career. Head Coach Eddie Radwanski was once again proud of the way his team competed the entire game against a Wofford team that competed with the Tigers at Historic Riggs Field last year and only lost 1-0. “I really liked how we lifted out game in the second half and came with the right focus and determination in this game. We created activity in the box and its always nice to score a bunch of goals.” He also applauded the way Salma has put in the extra work needed, “She has been a bit unlucky in a couple of our games and has put herself in some really good positions but goalkeepers have made some outstanding saves to keep the ball out so my message to her was to keep doing the little things and she was rewarded for that tonight.” Clemson returns to Historic Riggs Field Friday Sept 11 at 7 p.m. for a match against Penn and again on Sunday Sept 13 at 1 p.m. as they face South Florida. As always admission is free to all regular season home games.
