Chants blow out Camels in front of Hurricane Florence

Just four days removed and 142 miles away from its home-opening blowout win over UAB on Saturday night at Brooks Stadium, the Coastal Carolina football team scored the final 48 points of the game to pull away for a 58-21 road win on Wednesday afternoon at Barker-Lane Stadium in Buies Creek, N.C.

With the game being moved up four days and relocated due to Hurricane Florence, the Chants scored a new FBS-era 58 points, besting last week’s 47-point outing in the win over UAB. The 58 points is also the most points by CCU since scoring 58 points in a loss at Charleston Southern on Oct. 1, 2016.

The Chants improved to 2-1 on the season with the win and have now won four of its last five games, including two-straight victories over the last five days. The loss drops Campbell to 2-1 on the year.

The CCU defense allowed three scores and 217 yards to the Campbell offense over the first three possessions, but then locked down to force the Camels into six-straight punts, a blocked field goal and only 89 total yards over their final seven possessions.

Coastal racked up 574 yards of total offense, including 333 yards on the ground and 241 yards through the air.

Quarterbacks Kilton Anderson (10-14-1, 202 yards, 3 TD), Bryce Carpenter (2-2-0, 25 yards, TD) and Chance Thrasher (1-1-0, 14 yards) combined to complete 76.5 percent of their pass attempts for 241 yards and four touchdowns, highlighted by Anderson’s three TD passes.

Anderson, who accounted for three touchdowns for the second-straight game, completed his first eight pass attempts in the first half, which gave him 16-consecutive pass completions in a row after successfully completing his final eight pass attempts in the second half of the home-opening win over UAB last Saturday.

The Chant quarterbacks completed 13 passes to eight different receivers led by senior wideout Malcolm Williams’ team-high four catches for 75 yards and two scores. However, the big play of the day in the air came on an 81-yard touchdown pass and catch from Anderson to Ky’Jon Tyler in the second quarter. The 81-yard play is tied for the fifth-longest pass reception in Coastal Carolina history and is also tied for the 16th-longest scoring play in CCU history.

On the ground, the trio of Anderson (5 carries, 67 yards), Torrance Marable (8 carries, 64 yards, 2 TD) and Marcus Outlow (14 carries, 63 yards, TD) all rushed for over 60 yards for the game, and along with a late score from running back Baden Pinson (3 carries, 25 yards, TD), combined for four scores on the ground.

The defense was led by a quintet of defenders with six tackles apiece from Michael Makins, Silas Kelly, Sterling Johnson, Tarron Jackson and Jonathan Clayton, while defensive lineman Jeffrey Gunter totaled five stops, 1.0 sack, 3.0 tackles for loss and forced a fumble in the win.

Campbell totaled 306 yards of offense for the game, but was held to just 88 yards on the ground. Quarterback Daniel Smith was 16-for-34 for 218 yards, a touchdown and an interception, and was bottled up for a mere 15 rushing yards for the game.
