DUKE DEFEATS CLEMSON 1-0 IN MEN’S SOCCER Spencer Wadsworth’s goal lifts Duke to seventh straight shutout

Spencer Wadsworth scored the game’s only goal in leading Duke to a 1-0 win over Clemson in an Atlantic Coast Conference men’s soccer match at Koskinen Stadium in Durham, NC Saturday night. Duke improved to 7-0-0 (1-0-0 ACC). With the loss, the Tigers fell to 3-2-0 (0-1-0 ACC).

Duke scored early in the match at the 5:32 mark. Sophomore defender Danny Miller sent the ball up the near side to junior Danny Kramer, who crossed it into the box. Wadsworth was there and collected the ball, made a move and beat Tiger goalkeeper Phil Marfuggi to put Duke on top, 1-0.

Duke goalkeeper Justin Trowbridge made one save as he got his fifth shutout of the season. Phil Marfuggi made four saves in the loss. For the game, Duke outshot Clemson, 11-7. Clemson won the corner kick battle, 5-3.

“It was a tough loss,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “We did not play well in the first half, but we played better in the second half. I thought we dominated play in the second half. They scored early and played with a lot of people in the back. We created a lot chances where we could tie the game. We missed Charlie Roberts (starting forward, out with an injury) tonight. We got to rebound and get ready for N.C. State next Friday night.”
