Late goals give Chanticleers fourth straight win


After nineteen days of waiting to play their next game, the Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team got a 2-0 win over the Tribe of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va.

The Tribe was the more dominant side in the first half, outshooting the Chanticleers 10 to 4, forcing goalkeeper Chris Datello to make four saves in the first half alone.

The Chanticleers broke the deadlock in the 78th minute thanks to Yazeed Matthews. Midfielder Carlos Becerra found Matthews after a scramble in the box and Matthews easily toe-poked it home for his second goal of the season.

Just over 10 minutes later, the Chanticleers would get some help from the Tribe as a William & Mary player scored an own goal with less than two minutes to go.

The win marks the Chanticleers fourth straight and the team’s record improved to 4-1 on the year. Coastal Carolina will return to the pitch on Monday, Sep. 24 to face Portland.

That match was originally scheduled to be played in Conway at CCU Soccer Stadium but due to the potential threat of flooding, the game has been moved to MUSC Health Stadium in Charleston, SC. Kickoff for that match is set for 7 p.m.
