Lady Chants lose to lowly Longwood in double OT

Host Longwood scored just over five minutes into the second overtime to notch a 1-0 victory over Coastal Carolina Wednesday night in the Big South Conference opener for both teams.

It was the Chanticleers’ fourth straight loss and their third defeat by one goal in their last four games – two of them coming in overtime – to drop them to 3-5-1 overall. Longwood improved to 2-5-2.

Senior Kelsey Pardue, the Lancers’ leading scorer last season, tallied the unassisted goal from the right side of the 18-yard box on a 2 on 1 opportunity. Pardue got by the Chanticleers’ defender on the wing and had a teammate in the middle, but instead dribbled into the box and put a shot past Coastal’s Megan Spencer into the left corner.

It was the Longwood’s only shot in either of the two overtimes and just the second for both teams. The Chants’ lone attempt – by Fia Jonsson in the 103rd minute – was blocked.

Coastal’s best chance in the extra periods came early in the second one. Maddie Phillips put a free kick from the right wing into the box and after the ball bounced around the Chants tried to head it over to an open Brianna Panico right in front but Longwood goalkeeper Shelby Hall was there to intercept the pass.

Spencer helped force the game to overtime with a huge save in the 86th minute after a misplay by the Chanticleer backline. The ball got through to Amanda Spencer, Longwood’s top goal scorer this season, in the box for a breakaway, but the senior goalkeeper held her ground and blocked the shot right toward her. Spencer totaled four saves in the game.

Neither team was able to maintain control for long periods of time in the game. Coastal had the better scoring opportunities in the first half, while Longwood had more quality chances in the second half.

Jonsson’s shot in the fourth minute of the game missed just wide of the left post and both she and Amanda Clark put attempts on goal from the top of the box that forced Hall to make diving stops.

The Chants’ closest opportunity of the game came in the 38th minute as Darbie Kelley chipped the ball over the Lancer defense to Ellie Taylor inside the box. The freshman was able to chip it over the drawn-out Hall, but it sailed over the crossbar.

Longwood outshot Coastal 11-7 and had a 5-2 edge in attempts on goal. The Chants were playing without forward Kacey Kelley, who received a red card in the previous game, and centerback Rylie Johnson, who was sidelined with a concussion.

Coastal returns home to play its next two games at CCU Soccer Field, beginning with Friday night’s matchup against VMI at 7 p.m.
