Bulldogs stun No. 4 Chants to spoil undefeated season

uncasocThe fourth-ranked Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team fell by a 3-2 final to UNC Asheville Sunday afternoon at the Bulldogs’ Greenwood field.

UNC Asheville (4-5-1, 1-3-0 Big South) used goals in the fifth, 45th and 83rd minute to upend the previously unbeaten Chanticleers (7-1-1, 2-1-0 Big South). Coastal counted goals from Louis Dargent and Bryce Follensbee.

The victory was UNC Asheville’s first against a ranked opponent in two years. The last time the Bulldogs faced a ranked opponent was also their last win against a ranked opponent – Nov. 2, 2013, when the Bulldogs took down then-No. 6 Coastal Carolina at Greenwood Field. That was also Coastal’s last conference defeat.

UNC Asheville got on the board first in the fifth minute as Brendan O’Dowd found the net. O’Dowd received a pass near the top of the 18 and buried his cross-body shot into the right side netting. The goal gave the Bulldogs the early 1-0 lead.

Coastal got the goal back in the 35th minute to level the score at 1-1 as Louis Dargent notched his second goal in the past two outings. Darius Strambler was credited with the assist as he received a pass in the box and played it back to Dargent who hammered his low-lying shot past the diving Asheville keeper.

The Bulldogs the scored with four seconds to play in the half to take a 2-1 lead. Andrew Lawrence netted the goal on a header following a rebound on a shot by Chuka Anyafo.

Coastal tied the game 2-2 in the 56th minute as Follensbee scored his sixth of the season. Follensbee’s goal was assisted by Dargent and Tobenna Uzo.

Asheville found the game-winning goal in the 86th minute as Anyafo scored off on assists by Joe Lacasto and Brandon Millington.

Coastal appeared to score the equalizer with three minutes to play on a free kick, but an offside was called against the Chants.

The Chants face Campbell on Wednesday.
