Cary, N.C. - Second-seeded Maryland (15-4-0) advanced to the ACC men's soccer championship game with a 4-3 overtime win vs. sixth-seeded Clemson (12-4-3) in Cary, N.C., Friday night. Ian Rodway scored the golden goal in overtime to send the Terps to the ACC final.

Clemson struck first and even entered the locker room up 1-0 at the half before both offenses took control and powered to a back-and-forth game that resulted in what appeared to be the possible go-ahead goal for the Terps in the 74th minute off a Domenic Mediate shot from 25 yards out from Michael Dello-Russo's set-up pass.

The Tigers answered with 4:30 remaining in regulation when Steven Rhyne buried a strike to even the score at 3-3 and send the game into overtime. Maryland would not be denied the chance at the championship, however, and scored 2:18 into the overtime frame when Mediate assisted the game-winning goal for Rodway.

Maryland advances to the ACC championship game for the first time since 1997 and will face the Virginia Cavaliers at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The Terrapins have made the ACC final three times under Sasho Cirvoski, all against Virginia, winning the 1996 championship 2-0 in Charlottesville and losing in the 1997 final by the same score in Orlando, Fla..
