Ngwenya, the 2001 Big South Conference Rookie of the Year, had been slowed much of the season due to an injury suffered during the preseason. His recovery could not have come at a better time as Coastal prepares for the upcoming Big South Conference Tournament. Ngwenya scored both of the Chants' goals against Birmingham-Southern and has notched four of his six goals this season in the past four matches.
The Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, native put Coastal Carolina on the board first in the 29th minute of the contest. Tobin Whitmarsh crossed the ball from the right and Ngwenya took a touch before blasting the ball into the opposite corner.
Birmingham-Southern answered the first tally with Dixon's header from senior Falk Terjek's cross at 41:00.
The game-winning goal came off of the foot of Ngwenya at 51:17 as he took a pass and dribbled around a defender before putting the ball past BSC keeper Ryan Simms.
The contest was an even one as CCU took narrow advantages in shots (13-11) and shots on goal (6-5). Coastal keeper Andrew Paxton had four saves in the win while Simms tallied four for BSC as well.
Coastal Carolina now prepares for the Big South Conference Tournament, which begins Thursday, November 15, in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
