Clemson and Davidson played to a 0-0 tie in a men's soccer match at Davidson, NC Monday night.

Clemson is now 1-0-1 on the year, while the match opened the 2012 season for the Wildcats.

In the first half, Clemson came out as the aggressor, taking three shots and four corner kicks in the first 13:20 of the game. None of Clemson's shots in the first half were on goal, however.

In the second half, Clemson's offense again started with a lot of fire-power as the Tigers took three shots and one corner kick in the first eight minutes of play.

Davidson goalkeeper Matt Pacifici made three saves in the final 16 minutes to keep the Tigers off the board.
