As the Clemson women's soccer moves forward, the Tigers will try to pick up where they left off.
In their last game at Riggs Field against an ACC opponent, Clemson made a breakthrough, as the Tigers snapped a 45-game conference losing streak that dated back to the 2008 season.
Clemson's 1-0 victory over N.C. State on Oct. 31 was a springboard to a productive off-season and the signing of one of the nation's best recruiting classes.
The Tigers will be looking to make it two in a row tonight when they open conference play in a 7 p.m. home match against 21st-ranked Maryland.
The match will kick off a busy weekend for the Clemson women, who will play Boston College at home on Sunday.
Both the Maryland and BC matches will broadcast live by ESPN3.
Clemson brings a 2-1-2 record into the Maryland match, and is coming off a 2-0 victory over Davidson on Sunday. Freshman forward Catrina Atanda scored both Tiger goals.
Freshman goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan has posted 10 saves and recorded three shutouts, and has played all 490 minutes in goal for the Tigers.
Maryland, 4-2, coming off back-to-back losses to ranked California teams on the road, as the Terps fell to No. 22 Santa Clara 1-0 on Friday and to No. 4 Stanford 3-0 on Sunday. The Terrapins are led in scoring by Hayley Brock who has six goals and two assists for 14 points on the season.
Boston College is 3-2 going into its ACC opener Thursday against Pittsburgh.
