HUNTINGTON — A fast start was all Coastal Carolina needed, jumping to a 21-point lead over the Marshall football team in the opening quarter on their way to a 24-13 win at Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington Saturday night, spoiling the Herd’s homecoming.

Each of the Chanticleers’ (7-1, 4-1 Sun Belt) first three drives ended in touchdowns, one rushing each from quarterback Grayson McCall and backup signal caller Bryce Carpenter, opening up a 14-0 lead 10 minutes into the game.
