CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina held off a fourth quarter comeback to beat Central Connecticut State 33-25 on homecoming Saturday at Brooks Stadium. The Chants improve to 5-2 on the year with the victory.

Defense kept Coastal in the game, as Alex Scearce ran an interception on the four-yard line back for the game’s first score, and also recovered a fumble in the endzone for two defensive touchdowns. That gives the senior linebacker four touchdowns on the season.

Tyler Keane started under center once again for Coastal Carolina with , and went 7-15 for 141 yards, while throwing for two touchdowns to Bruce Mapp and Chris Jones.

Running back Deangelo Henderson missed the game, sitting out with a shoulder injury he suffered in the fourth quarter last week at Gardner-Webb. Backup running back Osharmar Abercrombie also was out after getting injured against Charleston Southern. Seven different CCU players attempted a rush, while Kenny Daniels led the team with 76 yards on the ground.

Coastal Carolina is on the road for the final time in 2016 next Saturday, as the Chants visit Presbyterian. Kickoff is at 2:00 from Clinton, South Carolina.
