CONWAY – The #14 Coastal Carolina football team was an extra point away from forcing a triple overtime period against #10 Charleston Southern Saturday night at Brooks Stadium, but Ryan Granger’s PAT attempt was blocked by CSU’s Johnny Robinson, allowing the Buccaneers to take a close 59-58 win.

The two sides traded touchdowns in the first overtime as Coastal’s (3-2) Tyler Keane found Bruce Mapp for a 15-yard touchdown, and CSU (3-2) responded with a 24-yard TD pass from Shane Bucenell to Colton Korn. Bucenell had exited the game in the third quarter with an injury, and his overtime TD pass was his first attempt after returning to play.

CSU had the ball first in the second overtime and needed just four plays to find the end zone with Bucenell connecting to Jared Scotland for 15 yards. The Chants used seven plays to answer with their own TD, this time by Kenneth Daniels who punched it in from two yards out. The following attempt from Granger was blocked to end the game.

Saturday’s game, which drew the fourth largest crowd in Brooks Stadium history with an attendance of 10,231, featured over 900 total yards of offense with CSU outgaining Coastal 473-412, though the Chants ran 33 fewer plays.

Each team featured a heavy ground attack, with De’Angelo Henderson accounting for 164 of Coastal’s 244 rushing yards and Mike Holloway pacing the Bucs with 140 of CSU’s 292 total rushing yards. Henderson totaled four touchdowns on the day – three of which came on the ground – extending his scoring streak to 31 games. He also tied a Coastal record by recording his 22nd career 100-yard game.

Coastal Carolina will have next weekend off and return to action Oct. 15 at Gardner-Webb.
