After the grueling matchup, Pfeiffer hosted a pair of matches starting with William Peace (1-3) at noon. The wind was gusting but the Falcons had no problems with the Pacers, winning in dominating fashion, 9-0.

In the afternoon matchup, Guilford (2-2) proved little resistance for the Falcons who won 9-1.

Pfeiffer returns to action on Tuesday when they travel to Randolph Macon and look to extend their winning streak to six in a row.
