Chants shut out UNCA, tie mark with 13th straight win

No. 1 seed Coastal Carolina all-conference goalkeeper Scott Angevine tied the school record with his 16th career shutout as the Chanticleers defeated UNC Asheville, 2-0 in the opening round of the Big South Conference Championship on Thursday.

Coastal has now won 13 consecutive games, tying the school record set in 2003 when the Chanticleers advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament where they fell to Santa Clara, 2-1 in overtime.

The Chanticleers (17-2-0) will play the No. 4 seed Liberty (9-6-2) on Friday, Nov. 11, at 4:00 pm in the semifinals. The Flames advanced on penalty kicks in their opening round match vs. No. 5 Radford.

With five shutouts this season, Angevine tied the all-time record of 16 shared by Chris Malinky (1997-2000) and Neal Robinson (1993-96). Angevine added one save tonight to bring his season total to 48.

Coastal threatened early in the match as the nation’s leading goal scorer, Ashton Bennett attempted two shots on goal but was denied by Asheville goalkeeper, Lassi Hurskainen who recorded six first half saves.

After a scoreless first half the Chanticleers broke through in the 47th minute as all-freshman team member Henrik Robstad sent a pass from Adam Schmoker in the back of the net to give Coastal a 1-0 lead.

Asheville nearly countered in the 64th minute but Angevine collected his only save of the day deflecting the attempt off the post as the Chants retained the lead.

After a Ricky Garbanzo corner kick in the 65th minute, a failed attempt by a Bulldog to clear the ball resulted in an own goal to increase the Coastal lead to 2-0.

“I’ll tell you, Asheville’s got a great team,” said head coach Shaun Docking. “They are well-coached, and it was a difficult game for us. I hate playing against Matt (Asheville coach Matt Kern), and I mean that as a high complement to both Matt and his players. We’re used to scoring more goals than we did, but we fought through and we are fortunate enough to win today.”

Coastal held a 24-3 shot advantage and attempted 11 corner kicks to Asheville’s zero.

The game saw a total of 24 fouls with Asheville recording 13 including two yellow cards while Coastal had 11 fouls and no cards.

Coastal improved to 6-0-1 against UNC Asheville in the Big South Tournament.

The Chanticleers semifinals opponent Liberty, marks the first time since 2001 that the two school’s have faced of in the Big South Tournament. During that match, the Chants defeated the Flames 3-1 during the Championship game to earn a berth into the NCAA Tournament. Coastal defeated Liberty 3-1 Oct. 2 in Conway as Big South Attacking Player of the Year recorded his second hat trick of the season.
