Coastal men, women score big wins on soccer pitch

ccuwsoc-10The 21st-ranked Coastal Carolina University men’s soccer team opened the 2015 campaign with a 2-0 win at No. 22/24 Old Dominion. Coastal counted goals by Sergio Camargo and Bryce Follensbee as the Chanticleers won their third consecutive season opener at top 25-ranked opponent.

Camargo broke the scoreless tie in the 17th minute of play with his 16th career goal in his 46th career match. Camargo created his own shot by dribbling around his immediate defender and firing a well-place shot into the upper right corner of the net.

The two defenses stood firm throughout the remainder of the half with neither team finding a goal. Coastal entered the intermission with not only the 1-0 lead, but also an 8-6 advantage in shots and a 4-0 margin in corner kicks.

Coastal took a two-goal lead in the 54th minute as Follensbee notched his initial marker of the season. The crafty senior stepped between a pass between the ODU keeper and a defender. Follensbee then took two touches toward goal before hammering his shot high into the left sidewall of the Old Dominion net.

Coastal, which opened the season with a win at No. 17 Wake Forest in 2013 and at No. 8 UConn last year, dictated the pace for much of the match and used its veteran headiness to win out in the physical match that featured a combined 34 fouls and three cautions.

Old Dominion closed the match with a 16-14 edge in shots, while Coastal held the overwhelming 7-2 advantage in corner kicks. Coastal’s Pina earned the win and shutout and ODU’s Alex Tiesenhausen took the loss.

Coastal Carolina continues its season-opening road trip at VCU on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Women

* Coastal Carolina 2, Georgia Southern 1: The Lady Chants won their home opener against Georgia Southern on Friday to improve their record to 2-1-0.

Darbie Kelley and Daniella Famili both netted goals in the second half for the Chanticleers in the 50th and 74th minute of the game giving them the go ahead win.

Coastal had a couple of early attempts in the first half but was unable to find the back of the net. Throughout the first half Coastal dominated most of the possession searching for that go ahead goal.

In the first five minutes of the second half, a through ball was sent by Daniella Famili splitting the center backs, Kelley then received the ball one touched it past the Eagles defender and placed it in the back of the net. This was Kelley’s first goal of the season and third goal of her career.

Following Coastals goal, the Eagles answered with a goal to tie it up in the 65th minute. After a Chanticleer foul, the Eagles had a free kick outside the 18-yard box and last year’s leading goal scorer, Nora El-Shami finished in the upper-90 to make it 1-1.

Coastal responded 10 minutes later with a goal from Daniella Famili. Famili received a ball sent over the top from Tara Lyons, who then volleyed it over the keeper from outside the box to take the lead. It was the juniors first of the season and fourth of her career.

The Chanticleers regrouped and controlled most of the play the remaining 15 minutes of regulation. Coastal finished the game with a total of 9 shots, Darbie Kelley and Tara Lyons each tallied two.

Coastal continues it’s at home winning streak from its previous season making it 7 for 7.

The Chanticleers will be back in action this Sunday as they head to South Carolina for the first time in Coastal history. Game time is set for 6 P.M. on Sunday Aug. 30.
