Coastal Carolina defeats Liberty 55-52 in 2nd OT

Alex Catron kicked a 35-yard field goal in the second overtime

to give undefeated Coastal Carolina a come-from-behind 55-52

victory over Liberty Saturday night.

The teams traded rushing touchdowns in the first overtime before

Catron’s winning kick. Coastal Carolina (7-0, 2-0 Big South)

blocked a 40-yard field goal attempt to seal the win. The

Chanticleers, who were one of five remaining unbeaten FCS teams

going into the week, have won 13 of the previous 14 games dating

back to last season.

Lorenzo Taliaferro and Alex Ross accounted for seven touchdowns

to lead the Chanticleers.

Liberty (3-4, 0-1) led by as much as 19 points early in the

third quarter before the Chanticleers roared back to tie the game

at 45 with 46 seconds remaining. Ross passed to Thomas Pauciello

for a 15-yard touchdown, and then connected with Bruce Mapp for a

two-point conversion to send the game into overtime.
