“It was a complete team effort,” said Clemson Head Coach Tate Parrish. I thought Nathan Thornton played well as did Michael Brooks. I thought Danny Poe had one of his better games tonight.”

The Tigers will play at Maryland on Friday, October 5th. This match will be televised nationally on the Fox Soccer Channel. Match time is set for 8:00 p.m.
