Clemson’s Dane Richards Honored by National Publications

Nov. 10, 2005

CLEMSON, SC–Clemson men’s soccer player, Dane Richards was named to both the Soccer America and the College Soccer News Teams of the Week as announced by the publications Thursday.

Clemson began last week downing Furman 2-1 at home on November 2. With the score tied at one apiece late in the second half, Richards notched the game-winner in the 79th minute on his only shot of the game.

In the regular season finale against Duke on November 5, Clemson topped the Blue Devils 3-1 in Durham to earn the seventh seed heading into the men’s soccer championship this week. Richards tallied his second game-winning goal in as many games and currently leads the team with seven. Less than three minutes into the second half, the junior forward gave the Tigers a two-goal advantage and the eventual win.

Clemson’s Dane Richards was named Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week as well after last week’s performance.

This season, Richards is the team’s leading scorer with eight goals and seven assists for 23 points.
