MISENHEIMER, N.C.- Brevard College senior Elena Crowe tallied her first goal of the season, but BC was unable to dig out of a two goal deficit while Pfeiffer defeated the Tornados, 3-1, in nonconference action Wednesday afternoon at N.E. Lefko Field in Misenheimer, N.C.
The Falcons (8-5) extended their win streak to four matches despite allowing a goal for the first time in over three games while the Tornados (3-8-1) saw their winless streak pushed to nine matches and allowed three goals for the fourth consecutive match.
Pfeiffer grabbed a 1-0 lead minutes before halftime when Kaitlin Sampson netted an unassisted goal in the 41st minute.
The Falcons wasted little time after the intermission while extending their lead to two when Jocelyn Weiner corralled a pass from Leticia Patino in the 49th minute.
The Tornados cracked the scoreboard when Crowe scored in the 62nd minute on a breakaway to make it a 2-1 match.
Pfeiffer dashed any hopes of a comeback when it scored in the 80th minute following an Alexa Eclipse goal, who received a pass from Brae Buster.
The Tornados lost for the first time this season when tallying more than 10 shots while finishing the game with 12. PU recorded 21 shots while Sarah Yates and Kayla Rodriguez paced both teams with three apiece.
Clair Deese, Sarah Fonger, Megan Jenkins and Crowe notched two shots each while goalkeeper Brittany Webster racked up three saves on the day.
