No. 8 Tigers take down 11th-ranked South Carolina
Clemson’s Megan Bornkamp scored two goals, including the winning goal in the 81st minute, as the eighth-ranked Tigers beat No. 11 South Carolina, 2-1, in Columbia on Saturday night.
“It’s a great result for having two highly-ranked teams play each other,” Clemson head coach Eddie Radwanski said. “What a great response from our kids – they went out there and did it with an incredible second half. To come down here and beat them on their field to cap off an undefeated spring is special.”
At the 81:29 mark, Bornkamp got an assist from Renee Guion to score the winning shot.
Bornkamp also scored in the 71st minute of the match when she tied things at 1-1 at the 71:20 mark.
The Gamecocks (10-4) scored the match’s first goal when Corinna Zullo scored in the 28th minute thanks to an assist by Catherine Barry.
The victory over South Carolina was the Tigers’ second straight in the series. It also improved their record to 12-4 overall to conclude the regular season.
