Results vs. Mount Olive (2008-09-15 04:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – The Pfeiffer men’s and women’s soccer teams beat Mt. Olive in back to back games on Monday afternoon. The men posted two goals and shutout the Trojans. The women walked away with a 3-1 win the seniors could be proud of. It was the first time since the 2004 Conference Carolinas opener that the Lady Falcons were victorious over Mt. Olive.
The men’s game started out evenly matched with neither team clearly dominating over the other. Both teams had several opportunities to put a goal on the board, but neither was able to capitalize. Pfeiffer led in shots on goal 5-2, but the scored remained 0-0 after the first 45 minutes of play.
Pfeiffer was able to tally two goals in the second half en route to their first conference win of the season. The first goal came in the 50th minute when junior Kash Knight (Gibsonville, NC) sent the ball to a cutting Chris Venable (Greensboro, NC) who played it past Trojan goalkeeper Chris Slaughter (Angier, NC) at five yards out. Knight continued to be an offensive presence and put Pfeiffer on the board again in the 73rd minute. He received a through ball from senior and team caption Matt Denton (Davidson, NC) and proceeded to beat his defender to go one on one with Mt. Olive goalkeeper.
Mt. Olive had five shots on goal during the 90 minutes of play, while Pfeiffer had eight. Falcon goalkeeper Alex Moreno (Huntersville, NC) was credited with the shutout.
Early in the first half of the women’s game it looked as if Mt. Olive was going to control the pace of the game. Despite the Trojan’s slight lead in possession, the Falcons edged out Mt. Olive in shots on goal 3-2. Goalkeeper Suzie Hinman (Idaho Falls, ID) had a great game for Pfeiffer, which included a huge save against Mt. Olive forward Lyndsey Brennan (Springfield, VA). Pfeiffer scored first when senior Megan Reaves (Mims, FL) shot a bullet from 20 yards out in the 43rd minute. That would be the only goal of the first half.
The second goal of the game came in the 50th minute when Mt. Olive was called for a trip in the box. Freshman Alyssa Wombwell (Grand Blanc, MI) was able to convert on her penalty kick opportunity with a low ball to the right of the goalkeeper and brought the score up to 2-0. The Trojans answered back 15 minutes later when Nia Celeta’s (Fayetteville, NC) corner kick slipped between the defense and into the goal. Pfeiffer’s back line, led by Katie Franca (Boise, ID), continuously broke down the Trojan’s offense in the second half and refused to let them score again. Sophomore Ashley Hawkins (Madison, NC) gave Pfeiffer a safety goal in the 85th minute when she dribbled through the defense and took on the goalkeeper.
Head Coach Sarah Denton said, “I’m excited the team was able to provide this first win against Mt. Olive for our seniors. Our midfield played extremely well this game.”Soccer Box Score (Final) The Automated ScoreBook MOCM vs PUMS08 (Sept 15,2008 at Misenheimer, NC) MOCM vs. Goals by period 1 2 Tot PUMS08 (2-4-0) ------------------------------- Date: Sept 15,2008 Attendance: 50 MOCM................ 0 0 - 0 Weather: cloudy PUMS08.............. 0 2 - 2 MOCM PUMS08 Pos ## Player Sh G A Pos ## Player Sh G A -------------------------------------- -------------------------------------- GK 1 Chris Slaughter..... - - - GK 1 Moreno, Alex........ - - - 2 Frank Boateng....... - - - 3 Sisk, Bradly........ - - - 8 Nate Parriott....... - - - 5 Bartlett, Casey..... - - - 9 Adrian Daniels...... 1 - - 6 Venable, Chris...... 3 1 - 12 Angelo Acquah....... 1 - - 8 Menacho, Wilver..... 1 - - 13 Matt Wallin......... - - - 9 Tesh, Jerry......... - - - 14 Justin Griggs....... - - - 10 Brindley, Nick...... 4 - - 17 Scott Mitchell...... 2 - - 16 Treadwell, Pat...... 1 - - 18 Tyler Jameson....... 1 - - 17 Mason, Matt......... - - - 23 P.J.
