BLACKSBURG - Everybody is talking about the defense of Virginia Tech's football team these days. Well, the surging Tech women's soccer team continues to lock down opponents, too.
The 12th-ranked Hokies (10-1-2) recorded their sixth shutout of the season Friday night at Thompson Field, nipping Clemson 1-0 in overtime.
Midfielder Katie Yensen provided the game's only goal off an assist from Taylor Antolino at the 44-second mark of OT. Clemson fell to 6-3-3 overall and 3-2-1 in ACC play.
Tech, whose only loss came 1-0 to North Carolina in Blacksburg on Sept. 12, outshot Clemson 14-5, including a 4-2 edge in shots on goal.
Senior Dayle Colpitts, benefitting from strong support by her back line of defenders, continues to be one of the nation's stingiest netminders. In 1,182 minutes this season, the Canadian owns a miniscule goals-against average of 0.61.
