[COASTAL CAROLINA-UNC GREENSBORO] Coastal Carolina coach Shaun Docking earned his 200th career victory on Saturday night as the No. 17 Chanticleers beat UNC Greensboro, 2-1. Freshman Tevin Skyershad the first two goals of his collegiate career to extend the Chants' unbeaten streak to seven games. The Jamaican also showed his defensive prowess, saving a sure UNC Greensboro goal off the line.
“It is an honor to win 200 games,” said Docking. “All the credit goes to all the players I have had the privilege of coaching and mentoring throughout my career.”
Skyers put the Chants ahead in the 40th minute on a rebound after Pedro Ribeiro's shot was saved by UNC Greensboro’s Peyton Ford.
Skyers again found the back of the net in the 65th minute, and again it was Ribeiro providing the assist. Ribeiro dribbled into the Greensboro 18-yard box and played a crisp pass to the left toward the crashing Skyers, who uncorked a right-footed blast past outstretched UNC Greensboro keeper Peyton Ford.
Skyers nearly picked up a hat trick in the 84th minute as he took the ball half the length of the field and fired a shot that sailed just wide after beating a trio of Spartans.
Jake Fields had the lone UNCG goal.
