CONWAY, S.C. (10/25/18) – The Arkansas State women’s soccer team concluded the regular season on Thursday with a 2-1 overtime loss at Coastal Carolina.
The Chanticleers won the match when Lauren Dabner collected a loose ball in the box and sent into the back of the net for the game-winning goal.
With the setback, A-State saw its record fall to 8-7-2 overall and 5-5-0 in the Sun Belt, while the Chanticleers improved their stanza to 8-7-1 and 7-3-0 in the league.
The Red Wolves finish the regular season with 15 points in the standings and are currently tied with Appalachian State for the No. 6 seed. Should the Mountaineers win or earn a tie in their match against Little Rock on Oct. 28, A-State would fall to the No. 7 seed. An Appalachian State loss would mean Arkansas State will remain at the No. 6 seed.
Coastal Carolina tied the match in the 65th minute when Hannah Miller sent a strike in from 30 yards into the top right corner and just out of reach of Kelsey Ponder in net. Ponder made four saves on the day, three of which came in the second half.
Following a frenetic end to regulation in which the Red Wolves took three corner kicks in the final minutes that resulted in a header by Julianna Coates that sailed high and shot by Lindsey Brochu that was wide, the match went into overtime
