CONWAY – Sergio Camargo, who was named to the Big South All-Freshman team on Monday, scored in each half to push top-seeded Coastal Carolina past eighth-seeded Winthrop by a 2-1 final in Big South Men's Soccer Championship Tournament Quarterfinal action on a cool and blustery night at the CCU Soccer Field.

The win sends the 12th-ranked Chanticleers (15-4-0) to the tournament's semifinal round where they will face fifth-seeded Radford at 4 p.m. on Friday at Bryan Park in Greensboro, N.C. The loss ends Winthrop's season with an 11-7-1 record.

After Winthrop took an early lead, Camargo scored in the 27th minute to level the score at one then scored again in the 61st minute to provide the 2-1 final.

"Sergio's confidence was great tonight," said head coach Shaun Docking. "He played like we all know he can and I was pleased with his work rate. He finishing was superb and that the difference tonight."

Pedro Ribeiro led Coastal with five shot attempts, while the Eagles were paced by two shots each off the foot of Adriano Negri and Pol Sole.
