A vaunted SU defense helps shut down the Tigers.

By Matthew Alexander

On a humid Saturday that saw temperatures reach 80 degrees, Syracuse was able to cool down a hot Clemson squad. 

Coming into the day’s contest, the Tigers (3-4-0, 1-1-0 ACC) had won three straight and were riding high after a 6-0 blowout victory over Gardner-Webb on Wednesday. However, it was the Syracuse (6-1-0, 1-1-0 ACC) defense that stepped up, shutting out Clemson 1-0 and securing its first ACC win of the season.

Syracuse dominates Big Red for its fifth shutout of the season.

Cornell entered its matchup against No. 20 Syracuse with consecutive 1-0 wins over Binghamton and Lafayette, thanks in large part to a defense that had allowed only one goal all season. 

However, Tuesday night was a different story. Syracuse had no trouble exploiting the back line of the Big Red and cruised to a 3-0 victory at SU Soccer Stadium.

The Orange are 2-2-1 over the last five games and have failed to produce much on offense. But if SU wins Friday, it will go into the ACC tournament an 11-6-1 record.

When Syracuse defeated the Clemson Tigers for its biggest victory to date, there wasn’t too much time to celebrate. The Orange (10-6-1) needed to immediately prepare for at least one final road trip against Wake Forest.

A win is necessary to keep its chances of reaching the ACC Tournament. The top eight teams in the regular season will advance to the conference tournament. The Demon Deacons (8-4-5), meanwhile, have already clinched a spot in the postseason and currently hold the third seed in the conference.

Syracuse could not contain Virginia and were outplayed across the board.

Syracuse men's soccer entered Saturday night’s game against Virginia trying to continue its three-game winning streak and improve in the conference standings. But Virginia (4-3-1) outplayed Syracuse (6-3) from start to finish a 2-0 loss to the Cavaliers.

Virginia set the tempo quickly in the match-up, and took control of the first half by showing aggressiveness against the Orange attack. Freshman Jordan Allen and Riggs Lennon provided the offensive spark for the Cavaliers.
