Goalkeeper Andrew Tarbell made eight saves between regulation and overtime and T.J. Casner scored Clemson's fourth-straight penalty kick to outlast sixth-seeded Syracuse 4-1 on penalty kicks Friday night in the NCAA College Cup semifinals.
After the teams finished overtime tied 0-0, Clemson scored on each of its penalty kick attempts, getting goals from Imam Mafi, Michael Melvin and Thales Moreno before Casner ended it. Julian Buescher had Syracuse's only conversion.
The Orange had eight shots in the second half, requiring four saves from Tarbell. He made a season-high seven saves in regulation and had one more during the two 10-minue overtime sessions.
