CONWAY, S.C.—Clemson defeated 13th-ranked Coastal Carolina 4-0 in a men’s soccer preseason match Sunday afternoon.
This was the final preseason match for the Tigers, who open the 2013 season Friday against Mercer. Match time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Riggs Field.
Thomas McNamara scored two goals while and sophomores Iain Smith and Kyle Fisher scored one goal each. McNamara is a graduate student and earned his undergraduate degree from Brown, where he was recruited by Clemson coach Mike Noonan.
“We got off to a slow start, but played better in the second half,” said Noonan. “We have plenty to work on this week in preparation for our season opener. Chris Glodack played well in goal for us today. We must continue to work on our attack in the final third.”
Noonan is in his fourth season at Clemson. He has nine starters back from last season.
