Box Score

COLUMBIA, SC–Ryan Deter scored the game’s only goal in leading 10th-ranked South Carolina to a 1-0 win over Clemson in a men’s intercollegiate soccer match at Columbia, SC Sunday afternoon.

South Carolina improves to 8-1-1 overall, while Clemson falls to 6-4 this season. South Carolina is ranked 10th by Soccer America and 17th by the NSCAA poll.

This was the first time that South Carolina has defeated Clemson in men’s soccer since 1995, or nine games. During this time, Clemson was 8-0-1 against the Gamecocks.

South Carolina scored first at the 23:42 mark as Ryan Deter scored his third goal of the season. Deter fired a 14-yard shot just inside the left post. Mike Sambursky fed Deter the ball from the left side. The goal was ruled unassisted.

“We played well,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “I told the players that they played their hearts out. We played well enough to win. Their goalkeeper (Brad Guzan) made some outstanding saves. We did not put away the chances, and that has been a problem all season. Charlie Roberts came off the bench and gave us a big boost. We played well, but I am disappointed that we didn’t get the result”
