The Clemson lacrosse team (5-0, 0-2 ACC) bounced back and defeated Longwood (2-4) 21-3 in Farmville, Virginia on Sunday.

The Tigers started out on a mission to win, with eight goals scored in the first quarter. Combined, the team took 44 shots on goal throughout the game, 22 of which landed in the cage.

Clemson maintained control of its draw controls for the majority of the game, winning 22 of them, and six were in possession of Longwood.

Familiar playmakers such as Gianna New and Hanna Hilcoff were top scorers for the Tigers in Sunday’s matchup. New scored five goals and Hilcoff put back four.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Emily Lamparter allowed no scoring in the cage for the first quarter and helped the Tigers gain the 8-0 lead going into the second quarter.

At the half, the Tigers were up 14-2 against the Lancers. During the third quarter, Clemson scored another five goals against Longwood’s one. The Tigers then went on to score two more goals and shut out the Lancers in the fourth quarter, securing the 21-3 victory. 

Clemson also had its most successful game this season of clearing the ball, as the team cleared all 17 balls successfully. 

After traveling away from Riggs Field, the Tigers will return home for five straight games. The team’s next matchup is against Campbell on Wednesday, March 8, at 4 p.m. EST.
