RALEIGH, N.C. - Ernesto Di Laudo scored in the second minute of overtime to give NC State a 2-1 victory over Clemson in ACC men's soccer action Sunday afternoon at Method Road.
The game-winning goal came by way of a deflection off of Jorge Mora's blast from 20-yard out from the right side of the net. Mora's shot attempt went off Di Laudo into the unoccupied lower-right corner of the goal as the Tiger keeper went the other way to play the initial kick by Mora.
The win improves NC State to 5-5-3 overall, 1-3-1 in the ACC, while Clemson falls to 6-8-1 overall and 1-5 in the ACC.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland men's soccer team went into overtime for the eighth time this season as it played to a 1-1 draw against Cal State Northridge on October 21 at Ludwig Field. Both goals were scored before three minutes had expired from the clock as freshman Rodney Wallace scored the equalizer for the Terrapins just 2:16 into the match.
Cal State Northridge's Michael Clegg scored 1:02 into the match after Adrian Lopez stole a bad clear attempt from the Maryland keeper. The Terps responded with Wallace's score with the assists going to junior Rich Costanzo and sophomore Jeremy Hall.
A minute after the opening whistle, the Maryland keeper tried to clear the ball from the box with the Matadors applying some pressure. The ball stayed on the ground and went right to Lopez in the middle of the field. Clegg was streaking on the left side and Lopez fed him nicely to set up the goal.
