March 13, 2012
MELBOURNE, F.L. - A dozen different players found the back of the net as Pfeiffer University thumped Florida Tech 23-4 in non-conference men's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon. The Falcons, led by James Shepherd's five goals, improve to 6-3 on the year while the Panthers fall to 0-8.
In the first half of play, 15 of the game's 16 goals belonged to Pfeiffer as Steven Tilmon started things off just 1:11 into the contest. This week's league player of the week Cole Paciejewski followed with his first of the day while Shepherd hit three minutes later. Shepherd would score the final goal of the first quarter as the Falcons held a 7-0 lead through the initial 15 minutes.
Tucker Hammock, Shepherd, Robert Hope and Jeff Konko would each strike in the second quarter before the Panthers got on the board with a Ryan Bailey goal. Pfeiffer would score the next ten-straight leading into the third quarter. Paciejewski and Hammock would each tally final goals in the early stages of the fourth while Christian Isola scored Florida Tech's final three.
Pfeiffer dominated 38-20 in shots and held a +25 margin in groundballs 44-19. The Falcons now have a week off before opening up a stretch of four-straight at home beginning with region-rival Wingate next Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.
