Boston College tied the game when sophomore defender Paul Gerstenberger punched the ball back in the box after Clemson cleared a corner kick attempt. The Gerstenberger offering went into the box and sophomore Mor Avi Hanan jumped on the loose ball and place it in the back of the net at 42:45 for a 1-1 game.

Just 15 seconds into the second overtime, Charlie Davies had a chance to give the Eagles the win when he broke free on a feed from Reuben Ayarna.
