RESULTS VS. LENOIR-RHYNE (2008-08-29 06:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – The Pfeiffer men’s soccer team struggled to gain control in their non-conference match against Lenoir-Rhyne on Friday afternoon. The Falcons were able to place two in the back of the net, but still came up short to the Bears’ four.
Lenoir-Rhyne set the pace of the game with their first goal coming in the third minute. The goal, assisted by junior Aaron Wheeler (Baltimore, MD), was the first of three by freshman Daniel Jones (Wrexham, Wales). Jones would head in the second goal off of a cross from the outside 20 minutes later. Pfeiffer was able to challenge their opponent, but was ultimately unable to capitalize on long balls fed to their forwards in the first half.
Looking at a two goal deficit at the start of the second half, senior Renato Barbosa (Campo Grande, Brazil) injected some energy into his team with two promising scoring opportunities. Glimpses of Pfeiffer’s offensive abilities could be seen, but the Falcons still struggled with connecting. Lenoir-Rhyne increased their lead by one after Aaron Wheeler drew a foul in the box and, correspondingly, knocked home a penalty kick.
Juan Sanchez (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) was finally able to get Pfeiffer on the board with a low strike from twenty yards after an assist from Wilver Menacho (Santa Cruz, Bolivia). The ball sped across the mouth of the goal, struck the inside of the goal post, and kept the Falcons from facing a shutout.
The highlight of the game for Lenoir-Rhyne forward Daniel Jones came in minute 77 when he scored his third goal of night, securing his hat trick. Pfeiffer was able to respond with a final goal by Wilver Menacho, but it wouldn’t be enough against the offensive power of their opponent. Pfeiffer Head Coach Ken Hassler expressed his disappointment with the game, “It was a very frustrating match. I don’t think we executed well in any area of the game.” Soccer Box Score (Final) The Automated ScoreBook LRU vs PUMS08 (Aug 29, 2008 at Misenheimer, NC) LRU vs. Goals by period 1 2 Tot PUMS08 (0-1-0) ------------------------------- Date: Aug 29, 2008 Attendance: 50 LRU................. 2 2 - 4 Weather: PUMS08.............. 0 2 - 2 LRU PUMS08 Pos ## Player Sh G A Pos ## Player Sh G A -------------------------------------- -------------------------------------- GK 26 Luke Gibbons........ - - - GK 1 Moreno, Alex........ - - - 3 Jeffrey Marks....... - - - 3 Sisk, Bradly........ 3 - - 4 Aaron Wheeler....... 4 1 1 4 Knight, Kash........ 2 - - 6 Alexander Larsen.... 1 - - 5 Bartlett, Casey..... - - - 7 Daniel Jones........ 3 3 - 8 Menacho, Wilver..... 2 1 1 10 Luis Carrizosa...... 2 - - 9 Tesh, Jerry......... - - - 11 C.J.
