Third-ranked Falcons take down Crusaders 5-0

The third-ranked Pfeiffer Falcons visited Tigerville and handed the Crusaders their fifth conference loss of the season by a final score of 5-0.

Both teams would battle difficult weather conditions throughout the match as the rain and winds made for tough conditions to play in.

The Falcons opened the scoring with a quick strike in the second minute. Pfeiffer's Juan Sanchez linked up with Jaime Siaj to put the Crusaders in a quick hole that they would not be able to recover from. Twenty minutes later, the Falcons struck again as Martim Galvao gave the team a 2-0 lead. Pfeiffer would get one more goal in the first half as Nathan Regis would score in the 43rd minute.

The second half saw much of the same, as the Crusaders could not get anything going forward throughout the entire game. A quick strike from Pfeiffer's Christobal Allendes in the 46th minute put the game out of reach for North Greenville, and Regis would score his second goal of the day on a penalty kick to seal the deal for the Falcons.

Substitutes Andre Cakar and Murilo Materagia were the only Crusaders able to get a shot off on the day, while Mateo Barzola spent the full 90 minutes in goal, making nine saves on the day.

The Crusaders look to return to their winning ways when they take on Columbia International University in Columbia, S.C. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. on October 3rd.
