PEMBROKE, N.C. – Sophomore Anna Svensson and junior Rebecca Womack each scored first half goals for UNCP, and the Lady Braves held their opponent scoreless for the third-straight outing, to key a 2-0 victory over visiting Pfeiffer on Wednesday evening at Varsity Grounds. The shutout marked the fourth of the season for the Lady Braves who have yielded just three goals through seven contests. UNCP improves to 5-1-1 while the Lady Falcons dip to 3-4.
The Lady Braves took control of the match early when Faye Corbett assisted Svensson for a one-on-one situation in the box to bring the Lady Braves ahead of the Falcons just 13 minutes into the game. The second goal came off a stolen pass by Womack who dribbled the ball a short distance before cashing in on the hosts' second and final score of the outing.
UNCP outshot Pfeiffer 25-10 with Corbett posting a game-high five shots. Svensson and Sheena Mature added four shots apiece. Five different Lady Falcons each had a shot on goal. Pfeiffer goalkeeper Jamie Alcala allowed both goals but had seven saves on the night. UNCP's goalkeepers, Britney Bennett and Rea Segoviano, split time in goal and combined for five saves after the defense stopped any real scoring threat on the night.
Pfeiffer gets back to action on Saturday hosting Limestone at 12:00 p.m.
