CLEMSON, S.C.ó The 28th-ranked Duke Women’s Soccer Team concluded the regular season on Saturday evening with a 1-0 loss at 25th-ranked Clemson. The Blue Devils fell to 8-4-6 overall and 3-3-4 in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) action, while the Tigers improved to 9-4-5, 2-3-5.
Clemson took eight shots to Duke’s 10 and the Lady Tigers had five corner kicks to the Blue Devils’ seven. Lady Tiger senior goalkeeper Ashley Phillips recorded three saves and Duke goalkeeper Allison Lipsher also posted three saves in the contest.
Elizabeth Jobe netted her fourth goal of the season, and what proved to be the game winner, on senior day for Clemson in the 35th minute. Jobe received the ball near midfield and dribbled it past a Duke defender before taking a long-range shot. The 27-yard boot went into the lower left corner of the net past the diving Lipsher to give the Lady Tigers a 1-0 lead.
Coming off scoring two goals in the last game against Miami, freshman Rebecca Allen led Duke with three shots, while Kelly Hathorn and CJ Ludemann added two each. Kendall Bradley, Lorraine Quinn and Elisabeth Redmond each attempted one shot.
