CLEMSON, SC – Freshman Tommy Drake scored with 4:18 left to go in regulation to lead Clemson to a 1-0 win over sixth-ranked Boston College in an Atlantic Coast Conference men’s soccer match at Historic Riggs Field in Clemson, SC, Sunday afternoon.

“We competed well today,” said Clemson Head Coach Tommy Drake is a proving that he is a good player in this league. I am happy for our senior today.
