RESULTS VS. FRANCIS MARION (2008-09-07 04:00:00)

Florence, SC – A strong second half push helped lift the Francis Marion University Patriots to a 4-2 win over Pfeiffer University in Sunday afternoon’s non-conference soccer match. FMU picked up its first win of 2008, while the Falcons who sit at 0-3-0 still search for their first victory.
Despite Pfeiffer’s control of the first ten minutes of the game, FMU freshman Emerson Peredo (Boise, ID) took advantage of an early opportunity to put the Patriots up 1-0 with a shot from 10 yards. Pfeiffer dominated play for much of the first half, but was unable to do so consistently, giving Francis Marion several more scoring opportunities. However, FMU was unable to convert on these opportunities and went into half time up by only one goal.
Pfeiffer defenseman Brad Sisk (Winston-Salem, NC) played strong in the back with intensity, but it would not prove to be enough in the second half. FMU senior Willie Hunt (Greer, SC) scored on a short 6-yard shot at 52:36 to put the Patriots up 2-0. The margin grew to 3-0 when Chris Foltanski (Long Valley, NJ) scored on an 8-yard shot at 56:52.
Pfeiffer was able to get on the board when a streaking Kash Knight (Gibbonsville, NC) took a pass from Renato Barbosa (Campo Grande, Brazil) and beat FMU sophomore goalkeeper Clark Richeson (Mansfield, TX) to his left with a 13-yard shot. Patriot sophomore Juan Rivas (Clear Water, FL) responded with his first goal of the year to give Francis Marion a 4-1 lead. His score came on an 8-yard shot at 65:17. Falcon senior Wilver Menacho (Santa Cruz, Bolivia) accounted for the final goal when he scored on a 15-yard shot off an assist from Chris Venable (Greensboro, NC) with 12:22 left in the match.
Pfeiffer sophomore Alex Moreno (Huntersville, NC) finished with three saves, including a huge penalty kick save that lifted moral in the second half and spurred on both of Pfeiffer’s late goals. Richeson finished with four saves. Pfeiffer outshot the Patriots 14-12.
Assistant Coach Bruce Dietterle commented on Sunday’s game, “Our offense came around today, but we can’t seem to get our defense and offense together on the same page. The heat had a lot to do with our loss today, but in itself, we didn’t come out to play.”Soccer Box Score (Final) The Automated ScoreBook PUMS08 vs Francis Marion Univ.
