Last Time Out
The Chanticleers notched their first victory on the young season in a thrilling 4-2 come from behind win over College of Charleston. Ashley Day had the eventual game winner in the 57th minute when she controlled a rebound and fired through traffic to find the back of the net. The win was the first at Coastal Carolina for new head coach Tammy DeCesare after taking over the program this past spring.
