CLEMSON, S.C. – The #14 University of Virginia women’s soccer team fell to Atlantic Coast Conference rival #15 Clemson Saturday night (September 19), 4-0, at Riggs Field in Clemson, S.C. The Cavaliers played the Tigers to a scoreless tie in the first half before surrendering four second-half goals and losing their first ACC match of the season.

UVa (4-2-1, 1-1 in the ACC) out-shot Clemson by a staggering 21-11 margin, but the Tigers were more efficient in their finishing. Clemson’s Lindsay Browne scored three goals for the Tigers (5-1, 1-1 in the ACC), who have now won five straight matches against Virginia and hold a 8-3 lead in the all-time series with the Cavaliers.

Virginia goalkeeper Anne Abernethy finished the match with three saves on Clemson’s 11 shots. Lindsay Gusick and Sarah Lane had five shots apiece for the Cavaliers.

UVa returns to action Tuesday (October 2), when the Cavaliers take on William & Mary at Kl?ckner Stadium in Charlottesville. The match, which was rescheduled following the tragic events of September 11, is scheduled to begin at 5:00 p.m.
