ROCK HILL, SC- The Winthrop women’s soccer team struggled to generate offensive opportunities as they fell to Clemson 7-0 at Eagle Field. The Lady Eagles fall to 0-2 on the year while Clemson improves to 2-0.

The Lady Eagles lone shot came early as Grace Radler took a shot from 18 yards out just a minute and a half into the game but was blocked by the Tigers’ defense. It was all Clemson from then on out with the first goal coming in the 14th minute from Tori Andeski. Andeski ran on to a through ball from Salma Anastasio and hit it past goalkeeper Caroline Duncan. Andeski had two more goals on the night, in the 24th and 87th minutes, as well as assisting in a goal by Tina Shakes. Shakes finished with two goals, and Katie Sprouse and Paige Reckert rounded out the scoring for the Tigers.

Caroline Duncan took the loss for the Lady Eagles to fall to 0-2 on the year while earning a career high six saves. Amelia Henderson came in to get her first minutes of the season and registered one save.

The Lady Eagles have a four day rest before they host Brevard on Friday night at 7:00 p.m.
