The seventh-seeded Coastal Carolina University womens soccer team (7-11-2) struck first in the 28th minute and kept second-seeded Birmingham-Southern College (11-7-2) off the scoreboard for a period and a half, but the Panthers scored three goals in the span of 12 minutes and defeated the Lady Chanticleers 3-1 Nov. 4 in the third quarterfinal of the 2004 Big South Womens Soccer Tournament at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, S.C.
Coastal outshot Birmingham-Southern 5-2 in the first half and scored first as junior Bobbie Parsons (Portugal Cove, Newfoundland/Prince of Wales) tipped a cross from junior Kristina Fisher (Landenburg, Pa./Avon Grove) for her 10th goal of the season at 29:25. Coastals defense was the story of the first half, as the Lady Chanticleers held BSC to no shots on goal. The Panthers Andria Gray had two saves in the half.
Coastal had another great opportunity to score in the 50th minute as Parsons had a 1-on-1 attempt off a pass from sophomore Kristine Kingsbury (Virginia Beach, Va./Kempsville), but Gray made a sliding stop. Birmingham-Southern tied the game with 21:56 left in the second half as Big South Freshman of the Year Anne McIntyre took a cross from Caitlin Gordon and put it past freshman Morgan Tolan (Ocean City, Md./Stephen Decatur). The Panthers then put the go-ahead goal in at 75:06 on a Jess Smith shot with a McIntyre assist. BSC added insurance at 80:58 on McIntyres second goal of the game.
Tolan, playing for sophomore Jaclyn Stoll (Fairfax Station, Va./Hayfield Secondary), who had to sit out due to a red card suspension, had four saves on the night. Gray had four saves for BSC, who won its eighth straight game. Birmingham-Southern ended the game with a 14-10 shot advantage while both teams had three corner kicks.
Coastal ends its season at 7-11-2. This game was the final game for seniors Leah Barrett, Erin Blevins, Jennifer Maxwell, Johanna Rosier and Lindsay Willis.
