CLEMSON, SC–The Clemson Men’s Soccer Team finished the season ranked tied for third in the final National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Poll released Tuesday.

Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair has coached seven teams to top 25 finishes in his 11 years as the Tigers’ head mentor.

The Tigers finished the 2005 season with a 15-6-3 record overall and advanced to the NCAA’s College Cup Final Four in Cary, NC.

Dane Richards led the Tigers in scoring in 2005 with 12 goals and eight assists for 32 points.
