UAB redshirt freshman Karl Chester scored a goal with 40 seconds remaining in regulation to defeat Marshall, 2-1, in Conference USA action on Saturday at West Campus Field.
Chester's goal came just when it seemed the game was heading into overtime. The tally was assisted by junior Chase Wickham, who took the ball into the right side of the box and sent a low cross to Chester. The Kathleen, Ga. native then drilled the ball into the back of the net to put the Blazers up 2-1. The goal marks Chester's third tally of the season and first career game-winner.
