MISENHEIMER, N.C. -- The Pfeiffer men's soccer team (5-6-1) tied a season-high with five goals in a 5-0 blanking of William Peace (6-9-1) on Sunday afternoon. Caz Dabrowski netted two goals to lead the Falcons to a victory in its third match in four days. 

It was Stenson Croom that scored the game-winner as the senior connected on a header with the assist going to Felix Erana in the 19th minute. For Croom, it was his third goal of the season and second coming off a header. 

Dabrowski scored the first of his back-to-back goals in the 23rd minute. With just under five minutes remaining in the first half, Dabrowski scored his second unassisted goal to give Pfeiffer a comfortable 3-0 lead heading into the break. 

The Falcons would add two goals in a 2:15 span in the middle of the second half to secure the victory. Freshman Caleb Bratager recorded his team-leading seventh goal of the season and Eliud Jaimes netted his first career goal in the 68th minute. 

For the day, Pfeiffer held a 21-8 advantage in shots over William Peace and held a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks. 

Tomas Correa earned his fifth win of the season by making two saves over the first 68 minutes of action before giving way to David Chavarria for the final 22 minutes. 

Christian Ortiz suffered the loss for the Pacers, giving up three goals and making four stops before being replaced at halftime. 

The Falcons will hit the road on Wednesday when they travel to Averett for a 7 p.m. match. The Falcons will close out the week with their final two home games of the season on Saturday and Sunday against Berea and Huntingdon respectively.
