Saturday, October 20, 2012
LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Jeremy Height and a stifling defense helps Coastal Carolina dominate Virginia Military Institute 34-7 Saturday in Big South Conference play.
Coastal Carolina (3-4, 1-1) got off to a fast start and did not look back.
Jeremy Height scored first for Coastal Carolina on a 19-yard touchdown run. Height led the team in rushing with 97 yards on 12 carries.
Already leading 14-0, Aramis Hillary found Demario Bennett for a 10-yard touchdown pass and a 21-0 lead. Hillary finished with 114 yards on 11 of 19 passing, and added 58 rushing yards on 10 carries.
VMI (2-5, 1-2) was unable to move the ball the entire game against Coastal Carolina's smothering defense.
The Chanticleers held the Keydets to just 16 rushing yards, while accumulating five sacks.
Tre Henderson had a 21-yard return on the opening kickoff to push his career total to 1,057, becoming Coastal Carolina's all-time leader.
