GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson junior midfielder Riley Sumpter was named Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week after helping his unranked Tigers to a unbeaten record last week, including a 2-1 overtime upset of 18th-ranked Duke.

Sumpter, a junior from Avondale Estates, Georgia, assisted on the tying goal against Georgia Southern on Oct. 19 in the 87th minute. Three days later, he tallied the game-winner in the 97th minute in the first overtime period to lead Clemson to a 2-1 upset win over Duke.

Currently Sumpter leads the Tigers in goals scored this season with four, while his goal against the Blue Devils marked his second game-winner this season.

Sumpter and the Tigers will play host to Wofford on Wednesday, October 27 at Historic Riggs Field. Match time is set for 7:00 p.m. The Tigers will also play host to N.C. State on Sunday, October 31, at 4:00 p.m. in the last home match for the Tigers this season.
