Box Score

CLEMSON, SC–Gerd Schuster scored on goal and assisted on another in leading Hofstra to a 3-0 win over Clemson in the fourth and final match of the Clemson Men’s Soccer Invitational at Clemson, SC Sunday afternoon.

With the win, Hofstra improves to 4-5 overall, while Clemson falls to 6-3 this season.

Hofstra scored at the 20:25 mark into the game. Matthew Telling sent a indirect kick into the box. Gerd Schuster headed the ball from 12 yards out into the right corner of the goal. This was Schuster’s first goal of the season.

The Pride’s Jason Gates scored his first goal of the season early in the second half (46:20) with assists by Constantinos Christoudias and Shuster.

Hofstra scored its third goal of the afternoon with 7:41 left in the match as Paula Walters scored his first goal of the season with an assist by Michael Hermann.

Michael Todd of Hofstra was named the tournament’s offensive MVP while Chase Harrison of Virginia Tech was named the defensive MVP.

“I was really disappointed in the team’s performance today,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “They beat us in every aspect of the match. We got what we deserved. We are missing speed up front. I am disappointed in the leadership, finishing, and defending. Hofstra played with more intensity and they wanted it more than we did.”

Clemson will play at South Carolina in Columbia on Sunday, October 10, at 2:00 p.m. in the Tigers’ next action.
