Final Stats

CLEMSON, SC–Yannick Reyering scored with 5:43 left in the second overtime period in leading sixth-ranked Virginia to a 1-0 win over Clemson in a men’s Atlantic Coast Conference soccer match at Clemson, SC Friday night.

With the win, Virginia improves to 8-1-2 overall and 4-0 in ACC play. Clemson falls to 5-4-1 overall and 0-4 in league play.

Will Hall crossed the ball to Reyering on the left who sent an eight-yard shot to the right corner of the goal for his eighth goal of the season.

Clemson was forced to play with 10 men after Jeff Routh received his second yellow card with 30:48 gone in the match.

“We showed a lot of character tonight,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “I feel we out played Virginia and missed key opportunities. We never lost our focus. I am very proud of our team. We must build from this loss to the number-six team in the country and continue to play hard. We must find a way to win. We played a great soccer match tonight and we showed great effort and intensity. Micah Usry did a great job and I though Dane Richards and Hector Quintanar did a great job up top. Randy Albright played his heart out. A lot of people gave 100% tonight.”

Clemson outshot Virginia 15-11 and had seven corner kicks compared to the Cavaliers’ 1. The Tigers’ goalkeeper Phil Marfuggi had five saves and Ryan Burke of Virginia had four saves.
