No. 4 CCU, Carmargo await first-ever visit from ACC foe

ccusoc-carmargoThe Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team has been ranked fourth in College Soccer News’ Top 30 National Poll, marking the highest ranking in program history. In addition, junior midfielder Sergio Camargo was named to the online publication’s National Team of the Week.

The No. 4 ranking in the College Soccer News poll, the Chants are also ranked fifth by TopDrawerSoccer.com. The Chants’ current national ranking of fourth eclipses the No. 5 ranking the team held the past two weeks and that of the 2013 team in late October during an impressive 11-game win streak.

The Shaun Docking-led Chanticleers have opened the season with a 6-0-1 record, including three wins and a draw on the road. Coastal, which has outscored its opponents 16-2 thus far, has surrendered just one run-of-play goal through its first seven games. The Chants surrendered its run-of-play goal at Clemson and a penalty kick goal to UAB.

Camargo led Coastal to a 3-1 win at UAB with two first-half goals, giving the Chants a 2-nil halftime lead. He scored both from the top of the box while being closely defended – the first in the seventh minute and the second in the 39th – to notch his third career multi-goal game. Against Gardner-Webb, Camargo notched his team-leading fourth assist on Bryce Follensbee’s second of two third-minute goals. Camargo, who played 78 minutes at UAB and only 18 minutes against Gardner-Webb, put each of his three shot attempts of the week on goal. He now has 10 game-winning goals in 52 career matches (19.2% of matches played).

The National Team of the Week honor is the fifth earned by a Chanticleer this season. Camargo joins goalkeeper Fernando Pina (three National Team of the Week plaudits for the week ending Sept. 1) and defender Miguel Gutierrez (one National Team of the Week award for the week ending Sept. 7) as Chants to be recognized by a national publication.

Camargo, Gutierrez, Pina and the Chanticleers return to action Wednesday at 6 p.m., hosting NC State. The Wolfpack’s visit to Conway will mark the first by an ACC member institution since Wake Forest in 2007.
