The Clemson women’s soccer team played its second date of spring exhibition play on Saturday, March 8 at Historic Riggs Field. The Tigers defeated Wofford by a score of 3-0 in the first contest of the day, and tied Tennessee 1-1 in the second. Three of the Tigers’ four goals on the day were scored by rising sophomores.

Against the Terriers, defender Claire Wagner, forward Paige Reckert and rising senior defender Savannah Coiner netted the three Clemson goals. Forward Abby Jones tallied the lone Clemson score in the draw versus the Volunteers.

“It was a good day,” noted head coach Eddie Radwanski. “Our girls dominated possession and we did some very good things in both games.

“Our team dedicated its play to Colie Dennion from Elon, who has been diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. They wanted Colie to know that we are thinking of her and have her in our prayers.”

Nicole “Colie” Dennion is a sophomore on the Elon women’s soccer team who was named the 2013 SoCON Player of the Year. She was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in February 2014. To read more about Colie’s story, click HERE.
