CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Western Carolina women's soccer dropped a 6-1 decision to visiting Clemson in an exhibition match on Tuesday at the Catamount Soccer Complex. The match consisted of three 30 minute periods.
"I think this match showed we have a lot of work to do," said Head Coach Chad Miller. "Although this was a quick turnaround for us, starting preseason last Thursday, I think this game showed us a lot of things we need to work on before our opening game at West Virginia on August 19."
Miller got to see a lot of players in action, including getting playing time for his five freshmen. One freshman, Kelly Pannell, made the most of her minutes of playing time, scoring the lone Catamount goal in the contest.
Pannell scored at the 19:20 mark in the second period. She connected on a shot on the left side about eight yards out.
Clemson got four of its six goals from sophomore forward Liska Dobberstein, who recorded a hat trick and more.
Clemson had 20 shots in the match to Western Carolina's five. All three of the Catamounts goalies, Katie Jacobs, Lauren Martin and Jennifer Lauer, combined for seven saves.
