Lady Chants suffer third loss in a row at UNC Wilmington

The Coastal Carolina women’s soccer team was unable to overcome an early deficit and fell to host UNC Wilmington 1-0 Thursday night in its final non-conference game.

The Chanticleers dropped to 3-4-1 on the season, while UNC Wilmington improved to 4-5. The Seahawks tallied the game’s only goal in the 10th minute.

Coastal came close to getting the equalizer several times during the game, even after going down a man in the 56th minute when Kacey Kelley was given her second yellow card of the second half.

The outnumbered Chants still managed to outplay UNC Wilmington much of the rest of the way, generate several good scoring opportunities and push the Seahawks to the limit.

A long shot by Amanda Clark in the 64th minute forced a leaping save by Seahawks’ keeper Lisa Rahkola and led to a corner kick. The Chants forced another corner attempt several minutes later but weren’t able to convert.

In the 81st minute, Fia Jonsson got to a loose ball near the top of the box just before Rahkola, but wasn’t able get enough of her foot on the ball to get it over the diving keeper who was able to tip it away.

Redshirt freshman Morgan Smith then provided the Chants with one more chance with 35 seconds left as she uncorked a 40-yard shot from the right side that forced Rahkola to dive to her left and block.

After losing Kelley, Coastal was able to match UNC Wilmington in shots the rest of the game, with each team recording three.

Katrina Guillou provded the lone scoring in the contest when she got loose behind the Chanticleer defense, beat goalkeeper Megan Spencer to the ball at the right corner of the box and chipped it in.

The Seahawks then controlled play for the middle third of the half but were unable add to their lead.

Coastal then started to counter and got two good chances about five minutes apart. First, Jonsson maneuvered for a shot near the top of the box that rolled just wide to the left. Shelby Evans then set up the Chanticleers’ best opportunity when sent a perfect cross from the right side to the back post. Clark got a head the ball, but it hit off the post and was cleared away.

The Chants came close to tying it again just 15 seconds into the second half as Ellie Taylor blasted a shot from the right wing that just missed the top left corner.

Kelley was then given her first yellow in the 49th minute before being called for unsportsmanlike conduct against Rahkola seven minutes later. Two Seahawks players were issued yellows on separate plays after that.

UNC Wilmington finished with a 13-8 advantage in shots and 6-2 lead in corner kicks. Spencer recorded six saves for the Chanticleers.

Coastal now moves on to Big South Conference play as it opens up at Longwood on Wednesday.
