Pfeiffer Men's Soccer Drops Home Opener to Piedmont
Misenheimer, N.C. (Sept. 14, 2019) – The Pfeiffer University men's soccer team suffered a 4-0 defeat to visiting Piedmont College in the home opener on Saturday afternoon at Lefko Field.
Piedmont opened the scoring in the 18th minute when Victor Munoz took a pass from Cameron Earls and slotted it to the right of Falcon goalkeeper David Chavarria (Franklinton, N.C.), taking the 1-0 lead.
A penalty kick from Jose Linares put Piedmont up 2-0 in the 42nd minute, a lead they would take into the halftime break. Pfeiffer would get little offense going in the first half, only managing two shots, while Piedmont had five.
The Lions would get their third goal in the 73rd minute when Earls tallied his second assist of the day, this time he found Brandon Ramos, who slid it wide of the Falcon goalkeeper.
Earls would finish his stellar afternoon when he scored Piedmont's final goal in the 79th minute on an assist from Linares.
Pfeiffer would manage better offensively in the second half, managing nine shots, three of which came off the foot of Caleb Bratager (Wake Forest, N.C.).
Teammates Yonaton Abonza (Asheboro, N.C.) and Diego Moran (Monroe, N.C.) also had three shots each for Pfeiffer.
The loss drops the Falcons to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in USA South play while Piedmont improves to 2-1 and 1-0 in league action.
Pfeiffer will look to bounce back on Tuesday night, Sept. 17 when they host Greensboro College in a USA South match at 7:00 p.m. at Lefko Field.
