Results vs. UNC- Pembroke (2008-11-15 00:00:00)

Jefferson City, TN -- UNCP unleashed a dominating first half effort to take a 1-0 lead into the intermission, but the Lady Braves were forced to hold off a strong second half surge by Pfeiffer to slip by the Falcons, 2-1, Friday evening in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
UNCP (19-2-1) tallied its first postseason win and will advance to face Carson-Newman (15-5-1) in Sunday’s second round. The Lady Falcons end their season 14-9-0.
Melanie Cobb (Richlands, NC) netted her 19th goal of the season in the first half, while Britney Joiner (Jacksonville, NC) tallied her fifth game-winning goal of the season midway through the second period. Ashleigh Rhoads (Palm Bay, FL) helped Pfeiffer snap a scoreless streak of more than 180 minutes against the Lady Braves with her eighth goal of the season in the latter period. Rhoads made Pfeiffer’s second shot of the game count with an equalizing score just less than four minutes into the contest, but the Lady Braves’ defense would stiffen the rest of the way out.
Pfeiffer got nine saves in a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Jamie Alcala (Fredericksburg, VA), with UNCP netminder Whitney Beverly (Richlands, NC) registering two second half saves in the victory.
Head Coach Sarah Denton said of the match, "We knew coming in that Pembroke is a very athletic, well coached team. In the first half we were kind of out of sorts and overwhelmed by the situation, but the girls settled down, played they way they know how to play which is passionate. The girls play absolutely passionately and that’s what has gotten us to this point. That’s how we played the second half. I definitely want to say hats off to Pembroke and best of luck to them on Sunday."
