RESULTS VS. CHOWAN (2008-09-10 06:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – Before the kick off whistles blew, the Pfeiffer men’s and women’s soccer teams were soaked to the bone. There was no doubt that the rain would refuse to give up for the 180 minutes of play on Wednesday afternoon. It was also obvious that the Pfeiffer Falcons would be relentless in these back to back matches against Chowan University. The women were first to play and came out with a 6-3 win over the Lady Hawks. Following were the men with an impressive 8-0 victory.
The Lady Falcons began the match with intensity notching two shots on goal in the first ten minutes. Junior Megan Blevins (Copley, OH) was a strong presence in the midfield wining 50/50 balls by using her body to trap and control the ball. Pfeiffer dominated the vast majority of the first half spending most of the time in the Hawks’ defensive half. Unfortunately for the Falcons, Chowan got on the board first with a goal that Ashley Bradford (Chesapeake, VA) knocked high to the back post past goalkeeper Suzie Hinman (Idaho Falls, ID). She followed her first goal with another two minutes later. Bradford headed the ball past Hinman after receiving the cross from a corner kick. Pfeiffer tied the game up before the end of the first half with far post shot by Ashleigh Rhoads (Palm Bay, FL) and a chip by Kirsten Bartsch (Leesburg, VA) that sailed beyond CU goalkeeper Kristy Brown’s (Chesapeake, VA) reach.
Opening up the second half with a 2-2 tie, Chowan struck first again with another goal by junior Ashley Bradford. Bradford’s goal scoring was impressive, but she would be the only Hawk to get a shot past Hinman. Pfeiffer dominated for the rest of the game and knocked four more goals into the net. Megan Reaves (Mims, FL) trailed teammate Kirsten Bartsch’s shot and tied the game up by putting the rebound in. Bartsch then beat the CU goalkeeper one on one to give Pfeiffer their first lead of the game. The last two goals of the game by Ashley Hawkins (Madison, NC) and Megan Reaves hit the crossbar and were directed down into the net. Pfeiffer continued putting pressure on the Hawks until the final horn.
The men started their game offensively strong with two quick goals within the first eight8 minutes of play. This would set the pace for a game in which the Falcons would dominate. Junior Chris Venable (Greensboro, NC) kicked off Pfeiffer’s scoring for the day from a through ball from Wilver Menacho (Santa Cruz, Bolivia). The Falcons would continue to attack Chowan’s defensive end throughout the first half, finding junior Kash Knight (Gibsonville, NC) twice to bring the score up 3-0. Pfeiffer’s team defense was aggressive in the Hawks’ own end, which kept the momentum in the Falcons’ hands going into halftime. The Falcons would round out the half with an impressive 18 total shots and 6 shots on goal, compared to Chowan’s mere 2 shots and 1 shot on goal.
The rain didn’t let up in the 2nd half and neither did the Falcon’s offense. Sophomore Juan Sanchez (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) netted the first goal of the half, with a quick shot from outside the 18 to put the Falcons up 4-0. Pfeiffer’s defense, lead by strong playing from senior Brad Sisk (Winston Salem, NC) and junior Pat Treadwell (Frederick, MD) was able to keep the Hawks from only getting off two shots in the 2nd half. The Falcons would notch four more goals on the day, including one off of a penalty kick from senior Renato Barbosa (Campo Grande, Brazil). Pfeiffer’s desire and determination to win 50/50 balls made this 8-0 victory possible.
The Falcons’ team effort on the day was evident, with goals coming from 6 different players and 7 players notching assists. Pfeiffer goal keepers Alex Moreno (Huntersville, NC) and David Porley (Sydney, Australia) are credited with the shared shutout. Head Coach Ken Hassler was pleased with his team’s performance stating, “Everyone who stepped out on the field played well. It was a great team win.”
