No. 5 CCU upset by UNCA; Lady Chants’ season ends

Despite dominating possession and the pace of play, fifth-ranked Coastal Carolina suffered a stunning 1-0 loss at UNC Asheville on Saturday afternoon at the Bulldogs’ Greenwood Field.

A penalty kick by Asheville’s Paul Egle in the 77th minute, following a Chanticleer foul in the 18-yard box, proved to be the deciding score of the match. The winning goal was set up by a great run from Kenneth Lingerfelt. He dribbled from midfield to the Coastal box and was taken down before he was able to get a shot off. A foul was called and the Bulldogs were awarded the penalty kick.

Following the goal, Asheville’s determined defense was able to hold off the hard-pressing Chants to secure the upset victory.

UNC Asheville moves to 5-12-0 (2-6-0 Big South) with the win, while the Chanticleers drop to 12-4-0 (7-1-0 Big South) on the season. The loss was the first suffered by the Chanticleers in Big South regular season play since falling to High Point on Oct. 27, 2010. The Chants had won their previous 26 league matches heading into the day.

The Chanticleers owned a 25-4 advantage in shots and 9-1 edge in corner kicks.

Coastal returns to the friendly confines of the CCU Soccer Field for its final home match of the regular season on Wednesday against Campbell. Prior to the 6 p.m. kickoff the Chanticleers will recognize seniors Justin Portillo, Pedro Ribeiro and Matt Risher for their accomplishments and contributions to the Coastal Carolina men’s soccer program.

* The Coastal Carolina women’s soccer team’s season came to a heartbreaking ending Saturday afternoon as the fifth-seeded Chanticleers were ousted from the 2013 Big South Championship by a 4-3 decision in penalty kicks to No. 4 seed Winthrop. The teams played to a scoreless draw after regulation and two overtime periods.

Both teams converted each of their first three penalty kicks in the five-round shootout before Winthrop goalkeeper Amelia Henderson made two saves around one stop by Coastal keeper Megan Spencer.

The Lady Chanticleers finished the season 10-8-2.
