CCU men win in overtime; women score 10th shutout

ccusoc-5cornerMiguel Gutierrez’s first goal of the season made Coastal Carolina a road winner in a 2-1 overtime win at Appalachian State.

It was Coastal’s third overtime match of the season, but was CCU’s first win in extra time as the first two matches ended in draws.

CCU (5-5-3/ 1-1-1 SBC) looked to have the match in hand as Jair Espiroza and Ryan Reid teamed to give the Chanticleers a 1-0 lead in the 14th minute of the match. It was Espiroza’s second goal of the season and Reid’s first assist.

The visiting Chants carried the one goal lead into halftime and into the 81st minute before a Stephen Chapman goal evened the score and ultimately sent the game into an extra period.

Only a little over two minutes had run off the clock when Gutierrez boomed in a crossing shot past the Appalachian State (4-6-3/1-1-1 SBC) goalie for the match winner.

The win continues am impressive run by Coastal over the past seven matches as the Chanticleers have gone 4-1-2 during that time period.

CCU will be back in action Saturday Oct. 22 when they play host to Howard University at CCU Soccer Stadium. The match is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

* The Coastal Carolina women’s soccer team cruised past South Carolina State, 3-0, notching its 10th shutout of the season Wednesday evening at the CCU Soccer Stadium.  Coastal improves to 10-5-2 on the season.

The 10 shutouts is second-best total in CCU history behind the 2013 squad that recorded 11 over 20 games.  Senior Becca Austin started in goal for the Chanticleers and earned the victory. She faced only one shot before sophomore Morgan Divine took over in the second half to finish out the match.

Coastal outshot the Bulldogs 14-1 including a 7-0 shots on goal advantage and 8-3 in corner kicks. Ambria Shutts led the Chants with four shots, including two on frame.

The Chanticleers took a 1-nil lead in the 29th minute of the first half. Freshman Alexis Magruder came off the bench for CCU and made an immediate within her first minute of play. A CCU corner kick from Kendall Parks found the foot of Magruder, who hammered it home for the lead.

The Bulldogs’ only opportunity came early in the first half but the attempt went high of the goal.

Coastal took command early in the second half by scoring seven minutes into the period. After drawing a foul just outside the penalty area, Daniella Famili lined up to take the kick. Famili drilled the ball into the bottom right corner to score.

In the 70th minute, Amber Adams provided the 3-nil final. Ellie Taylor served the ball into the box from a corner kick. Adams, who was on the back post, received the ball and volleyed it past her defender to score.

The Chanticleers play their last regular season home game Sunday, October 23, versus UL Lafayette. Kickoff is set for noon. Prior to the game, the CCU women’s soccer team will honor the seven members of the 2016 senior class.
