Big Second Half Sparks Pfeiffer to 4-2 Women's Soccer Win Over Southern Virginia
Misenheimer, N.C. (Sept. 19, 2018) – The Pfeiffer University women's soccer team used a big second half to erase a one goal deficit on their way to a 4-2 nonconference win over Southern Virginia on Wednesday afternoon at Lefko Field.
The Falcons struck first, going up 1-0 when Cayci Eaton (Harrisburg, N.C.) found the back of the net after a one-on-one opportunity with the Knights keeper in the 33rd minute, a lead the Falcons would take into halftime.
Southern Virginia would knot the match at 1-1 shortly after the start of the second half when Jensen McCall knocked home a pass from Shayli Nakamoto in the 46th minute. Nakamoto would score in the 52nd minute to grab the 2-1 lead for the Knights.
Southern Virginia would hold the lead until the 76th minute when
Madeline Capel (Harrisburg, N.C.) scored on a blast from 18 yards out to tie the match at 2-2. Less than three minutes later, Capel scored again, this time after taking a cross from
Allison Gonzalez (Charlotte, N.C.) and drilling it into the corner of the net giving Pfeiffer the 3-1 lead.
The Falcons would add another goal in the 81st minute, this time when
Meredith Manson (Auburndale, Fla.) blasted a shot from 15 yards out to provide the 4-2 final.
The win improves Pfeiffer to 3-1 on the season while Southern Virginia slips to 2-3.
