Chants win tourney opener, dominate Big South awards

ccusoc-carmargoclosePropelled by first-half goals by Sergio Camargo and Ricky Garbanzo, second-seeded Coastal Carolina earned a 2-1 victory over seventh-seeded Longwood in the quarterfinal round of the 2014 Big South Tournament Tuesday evening at the CCU Soccer Stadium.

The win sends the Chanticleers (13-5-1) to the tournament’s semifinal round where they will face the winner of No. 3 seed High Point/No. 6 seed UNC Asheville on Friday at Bryan Park in Greensboro, N.C. The loss ends Longwood’s season with a 4-14-1 record.

The sides played scoreless for the opening 34 minutes, despite CCU owning the possession battle, before Camargo broke the deadlock at the 34:01 mark of action. Shawn McLaws, who was named the 2014 Big South Defensive Player of the Year, sparked the score by beating a pair of Longwood defenders toward the right side of the 18-yard box and centered a low-lying cross. Camargo ran on to the ball at the corner of the six-yard box and blasted a one-timer into the back of the net for his fifth score of the season.

Garbanzo, the 2014 Big South Attacking Player of the Year, made the score 2-0 in Coastal’s favor in the 40th minute. Martin Melchor attempted a shot that was blocked by a Lancer defender inside the box. The ball sprung out to Garbanzo who placed his shot firmly into the back of the goal. The score was Garbanzo’s team-leading eighth of the season and fourth in a pair of games against Longwood. Moreover, the goal was the 40th of Garbanzo’s career, moving him into a tie with Hilmar Arnason (1987-90) for fifth on the CCU all-time list.

Chants dominate All-Big South awards

The Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team garnered a total of 12 All-Big South honors, including the league’s attacking and defensive player of the year awards, it was announced by the conference office Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Ricky Garbanzo was named the Attacking Player of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year went to Shawn McLaws. Joining Garbanzo and McLaws on the all-conference first team was defender Uchenna Uzo. Midfielder Ollivier Gueguen and defender Tommy Gudmundsson were named to the second team, while goalkeeper Devin Cook-Perales and forward Sergio Camargo garnered honorable mention honors. Louis Dargent and Gudmundsson earned all-freshman plaudits. Ridge Robinson was named to the Big South All-Academic Team.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that Chanticleers have swept the conference’s attacking and defensive player of the year awards. Pedro Ribeiro was the Attacking Player of the Year last season, while Ashton Bennett earned the award in both 2011 and 2012. McLaws is a repeat selection as the Defensive Player of the Year. Cyprian Hedrick was tabbed the league’s top defensive player in 2011 followed by Kjartan Sigurdsson in 2012.
