Davidson 6, Coastal Carolina 5, penalty kicks
DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) _ Ryan Northington scored and goalkeeper Alex Deegan knocked a shot over the crossbar in the 10th round of penalty kicks to give Davidson a 6-5 triumph over Coastal Carolina in the NCAA Division I tournament Sunday.
It was the Wildcats’ second win on penalty kicks in two rounds of playoffs.
Davidson (16-4-5) and Coastal Carolina (16-2-1) were scoreless through regulation, then played two 15-minute overtimes and two 15-minute sudden death periods before going to penalty kicks.
After Northington’s kick, Deegan deflected Billy Johnstone’s shot over the goal to end the season for Coastal Carolina. Davidson moved into the round of eight without having earned a victory.
The Wildcats will play North Carolina State at a site and time to be announced later this week.
