Furman, Clemson Renew Upstate Soccer Rivalry On Tuesday In Greenville
Greenville, S.C. – The nationally-ranked Furman men's soccer team will look to return to the win column on Tuesday when it hosts Upstate rival Clemson at Stone Soccer Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Furman had its eight-match unbeaten streak snapped and slipped to 8-2-2 on the season when Elon converted a penalty kick in the 92nd minute to down the Paladins 1-0 on Saturday night in Elon, N.C. Head coach Doug Allison's squad fashioned a 6-0-2 mark in eight matches prior to losing to the Phoenix.
Tuesday's non-conference finale against Clemson marks the 53rd meeting in the all-time series between the Paladins and Tigers. Clemson holds a 39-10-3 series advantage, but Furman has topped the Tigers in three of the past four seasons, including a 3-2 triumph at Historic Riggs Field in Clemson, S.C., last year.
The Tigers come into this week's match at 4-6-2 after suffering a 2-0 defeat at No. 6 North Carolina on Friday evening.
Tickets for Tuesday's match are $4 for adults and $2 for children. Furman students receive free admission with a valid student ID.
Ruby Tuesday will be handing out coupons at Tuesday's match and sponsoring a special halftime contest.
