Pfeiffer Drops Road Match at Maryville, 1-0

Maryville, Tenn. (Sept. 20, 2019) –
Maryville College and Pfeiffer University battled much of the match, but the homestanding Scots pushed across a goal in the 76th minute to take a USA South men's soccer match on Friday afternoon.

Maryville outplayed the Falcons in the first half by registering nine shots while holding Pfeiffer without a shot.

Pfeiffer goaltender David Chavarria (Franklinton, N.C.) held off the Scots by making four first half saves to keep the match scoreless at the break.

The game remained scoreless until late, when Maryville's Jace Burchfiel notched his third goal of the season on an assist from Aaron Rucker.  Burchfiel was the benefactor of a header by Rucker that fell into traffic before he was able to push it past the Falcon keeper while on the ground to provide the eventual game winner.

The win improves Maryville to 5-2 overall and 3-0 in USA South play while the Falcons dip to 1-5 and 0-3 in league play.

Pfeiffer will continue their USA South road trip on Saturday when they face Covenant at 5:00 p.m. in Lookout Mountain, Ga.
