Clemson’s Savage and Virginia’s Restrepo Share ACC Men’s Soccer Weekly Accolades

Nov. 3, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. ­ Clemson freshman forward Austin Savage and Virginia junior goalkeeper Diego Restrepo share this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week honor after leading their respective teams to undefeated finishes against ranked ACC opponents.

Savage scored a goal at the 84:46 mark in leading Clemson to a 1-0 victory over 11th-ranked NC State in ACC men’s soccer action Friday night. The rookie scored two goals in the Tigers’ 6-0 win over North Greenville University earlier in the week before scoring the game’s lone goal in Clemson’s upset on the road. This marked the second ranked opponent that the Tigers have defeated this season, while both matches were on the road.

The Tigers also defeated then-ranked No. 8 Virginia on Sept. 26 at Charlottesville, Va.

Restrepo shut out the sixth-ranked Terrapins on their home field Saturday, the junior’s third-straight shutout of the season and the Cavalier’s eighth of the season. Restrepo was credited with seven saves in the contest.
