CCU Soccer: Five Chants, two Lady Chants honored

Coastal Carolina University senior Frantzdy Pierrot leads a group of five Coastal Carolina soccer players on the 2017 Men’s Soccer Preseason All-Sun Belt team, released by the Sun Belt Conference.

Pierrot, a 2016 First-Team All-Sun Belt honoree, was named the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year in a vote of the conference’s head coaches.

Pierrot, a 2017 MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List nominee, was one of the top players in the Sun Belt last season. He led the SBC in shots (61); shots per game (3.21); and game-winning goals (5). He scored 21 points on eight goals and five assists to lead the Chants.

Joining Pierrot on the preseason announcement are teammates Martin Melchor along the midfield while Miguel Gutierrez and Henrik Mueller are listed as a defenders and Braulio Linares-Ortiz is the goalkeeper.

Melchor and Linares-Ortiz were both second team All-Sun Belt picks in 2016 and Mueller was named to the 2016 All-Sun Belt Tournament Team.

Gutierrez has started every match for the Chants since he arrived on campus and was one of the big reasons why CCU was the top defensive team, not only in the Sun Belt last season, but the nation.  As a defender, Gutierrez was one of the leaders on the CCU defense which only allowed 18 goals all season and had eight shutouts to lead the conference.

Famili, Attenberry honored

Senior forward Daniella Famili (offensive) and freshman goalkeeper Rylee Atteberry (defensive) of the Coastal Carolina women’s soccer team have been named the Sun Belt Conference Players of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.

The Chanticleer duo helped the program to a 2-0 start to the 2017 season with a 3-0 road victory over Wofford and a come from behind win over College of Charleston.

Famili, the Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year, accounted for three of five goals scored by the Chanticleers this past weekend. The senior’s first tally, the eventual game-winner, of the weekend over Wofford came in the 34th minute. Against the Cougars, Famili, a native of Stockholm, Sweden, scored both (67th minute and 74th minute) goals giving the Chants a come from behind 2-1 victory.

Atteberry earned her first career victory over Wofford. The Aurora, Colo. native, made four saves while facing nine shots. Early in the second half Atteberry thwarted the Terriers best opportunity with a diving save and following that up with a punch save to keep the score at 1-0. Against College of Charleston, Atteberry gave up a goal in the 30th minute to fall behind 1-0, but was able to weather the storm after Coastal took the lead to preserve the one goal victory.

The Chanticleers travel to Raleigh, N.C., Thursday (Aug. 24) to take on the Wolfpack of N.C. State from the ACC at 7 p.m.
