Chants’ winless streak hits 4 as they fall in first round

ccusoc-21The No. 15/20 and third-seeded Coastal Carolina University men’s soccer team is now winless in its last four matches after being eliminated from the Big South Conference tournament in a shootout to visiting High Point on Tuesday night.

The match was technically a 1-1 double-overtime draw Tuesday in the quarterfinal round of the Big South Tournament. The Panthers ultimately advanced to the tournament’s semifinal round by way of a 4-2 score in a penalty kick shootout.

Just 0-1-3 in their last four games, Coastal Carolina moves to 12-2-4 on the season and will now wait its NCAA Tournament fate. The Chanticleers will learn if they are selected as an at-large team in the national tournament on Monday at 1 p.m. via a live web stream on NCAA.com.

Coastal’s Louis Dargent gave the Chanticleers a 1-0 lead in the 54th minute with his third goal of the season and the Chants’ lone goal in the last four games. He slotted home a rebound following a Colin Marz header off the left post.

The Chanticleers led the remainder of the half until High Point’s Chris Ramsell headed in the equalizer with 27 seconds to play in regulation. The sides traded glancing attacks throughout the 20 minutes of overtime before the match was ultimately decided via penalty kicks.

Coastal Carolina and High Point played a level first half on both the scoreboard and the box score as both teams attempted two shots on target. The second half opened up a bit more with Coastal out-shooting their visitors 10-6.

Both Coastal Carolina’s Fernando Pina and High Point’s Kody Palmer were credited with four saves during the match. In addition, Pina also made a save on High Point’s fourth penalty kick during the shootout.
