Men’s Soccer Post Game Quotes

November 15, 1998

QUOTES FROM CLEMSON HEAD COACH TREVOR ADAIR: “I’m thrilled with our play in this tournament. We’ve been very much performance based this year rather than result oriented. Today we executed our game plan and our defense took a lot away from them today.

“I’m very happy for our seniors today. For them to be a part of the first ACC Championship in Clemson history is great. I know that they will all remember this for a long time.

“Duke is a phenomenal team. I think that today was our best defensive effort of the season. In the first 15 minutes of the game I think we played some of the best soccer we’ve played all season. That defensive effort starts on the front line and goes all the way back to the defensive players.”

“Wake Forest did a great job hosting this tournament. Their people were just great this weekend. I’m happy not only for out university but for the conference as well.”

QUOTES FROM DUKE HEAD COACH JOHN RENNIE: “I want to congratulate Clemson, they played a great game and are certainly worthy champions. I think that they will represent our league well in the NCAA Tournament, most likely as the nation’s #1 seed.”

“I’m happy with the way we played. We knew coming in that the danger in Clemson is in transition and that’s exactly where they got their goal from.”

“Today we just couldn’t get behind their defense. We played very well but that was the difference. At the end of the first half we had the game where we wanted it and again early in the second half. We were a little tired in the last third of the game having played three games in four days.”
