Syracuse men's soccer head coach Ian McIntyre: "Every game ends in 90 minutes, but to conceive in the final minute is a tough one."

Up to the final minute of the game between the Clemson Tigers and Syracuse Orange, it was equal. The Orange held tempo for most of the first half but were unable to score, and by the second, the No. 4 Tigers (11-1-2, 4-1-1 ACC) crept back in.

Central Michigan overcame a 14-point second-half deficit but could only muster a field goal in overtime before allowing Syracuse's game-winning touchdown.

It’s the best start for the Orange since 1991, when they finished 10-2 under coach Pasqualoni. Following the 30-27 victory, head coach Scott Shafer had nothing but adulation for his team.

The first ACC match of the season concluded as a 1-1 tie with the Louisville Cardinals.

"It was two honest teams that canceled each other out," Syracuse Head Coach Ian McIntyre said. "A fair result."
