COLUMBIA, S.C. - The University of New Hampshire men's soccer team fell to College of Charleston 2-1 Sunday in the second round of the South Carolina Gamecock Classic at Stone Stadium. The Wildcats now stand at 4-2-0 on the season.
After a wet, slippery, scorless first half, UNH would take a 1-0 lead with just under seven minutes to play. Nicola Chicco (Claymont, Del.) netted his fourth goal of the season at the 83:32 mark to give the Wildcats the lead. Josh Hareld (N. Kingstown, R.I.) assisted on the tally. Charleston (3-2-1) would tie the game four minutes later when Ricardo Granardos scored on a corner kick. The Cougars netted the game-winner on a Sage Martina tally with 45 seconds to play.
Goalie Mike Vignola (Hudson, N.H.) made six saves for UNH while Charleston's Keith Wiggans made three stops.
UNH returns to action when they face UMass in a 3:30 p.m. game in Amherst. The next Wildcat home game is October 5, when UNH takes on Northeastern in a 2:00 p.m. game at Lewis Field.
