CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson women’s soccer team will kick off the 2014 regular season at home Friday against Auburn at 7 p.m. at Historic Riggs Field. Admission is free for all home regular season women’s soccer games. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
Last season, the two teams battled in the season opener to a 0-0 double-overtime tie in Auburn after battling heavy rain. Clemson currently leads the all-time series between the two teams with a 4-1-1 record.
Eddie Radwanski’s Tigers have two exhibition wins heading into the game, a 3-0 victory over Georgia and a 2-0 victory over Furman, both of which were played at Historic Riggs Field. The Tigers finished the 2013 campaign 7-8-4 (4-7-2 ACC).
Auburn comes into the game having played one exhibition contest, a 3-0 loss against Georgia in Athens. Karen Hoppa’s Tigers finished the 2013 season 8-9-4 (3-5-3 SEC).
Friday’s game is being called the #Clemson18 game, a student appreciation initiative targeting the new freshmen on campus. All Clemson freshmen were given a blue ticket voucher for the game, and the first 500 freshmen to bring their voucher to Riggs Field will be given pizza and a t-shirt.
