harris23.jpgMOUNT OLIVE , N.C. – Pfeiffer defeated Mount Olive 4-0 in Conference Carolinas men’s soccer Monday evening. The match was originally scheduled for October 3, but was postponed due to severe weather. Matthew Harris paced Pfeiffer with a hat trick, scoring the final three goals of the match.

Mount Olive (6-9-0 overall, 1-5-0 Conference Carolinas) had a scoring chance in the ninth minute when Joshua Kiser played a long service into the box, intended for a header by Matt Wallin at the right post. But Pfeiffer goalkeeper Alex Moreno punched the ball just over the head of Wallin to prevent the shot attempt.

Pfeiffer (8-6-1, 4-3-1) got on the scoreboard at the 11:01 mark when Patrick Treadwell played a ball from the right corner to Nicholas Sheridan, who settled and put the ball in the upper 90 from 25 yards out. Treadwell combined with Davi Lorenzo to assist on Harris’ 10-yard goal at 30:11 to give the Falcons a 2-0 halftime lead.

Trojan goalkeeper Chase Smith made saves on three shots from close range in the first half to keep Mount Olive within striking distance. Smith prevented a breakaway goal by Harris with a diving save on a 10-yard shot in the seventh minute, then made another save in the 18th minute when Harris captured a loose ball in the box.

Pfeiffer had another scoring chance in the closing seconds of the half, but Smith tipped Merritt McCuskey’s 18-yard attempt just wide of the left post with 11 seconds remaining.

Harris notched his second goal of the match at the 55:11 mark when Austin Knight’s service led Renato Barbosa past the Trojan defense to the right post, forcing Smith to come off his line. Barbosa chipped the ball to Harris in front of an open net. The final goal at 69:42 was almost a carbon copy as Harris made a run down the center of the box to put home Barbosa’s service from the left post. Barbosa and Treadwell finished with two assists apiece for the Falcons.

Pfeiffer is off until October 24 at 4 p.m. when the Falcons play host to Queens in a Conference Carolinas contest.
