CONWAY, S.C. (10/1/23) – A second-half surge helped the Arkansas State soccer team overcome a one-goal halftime deficit and take a 2-1 victory at Coastal Carolina Sunday afternoon at the Coastal Carolina Soccer Stadium.
A-State (3-5-2, 1-2-1 SBC), which was limited to just one shot in the first half, upped the offensive intensity in the second 45, attempting 11 shots with six on target. The Chanticleers (3-7-1, 0-3-1) took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Lou Martinet in the 13th minute and held that lead at intermission.
In the 51st minute, McKenzie Robinson delivered a strike into the box, where Keelyn Peacock tapped it into the goal for the equalizer. The score was Peacock’s first career goal.
A-State returns home Thursday to host Troy at the A-State Soccer Park. Start time is slated for 3 p.m. and the match will be broadcasted live on ESPN+.
