SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Kash Knight (Gibsonville, NC) scored a pair of goals and added an assist to lead visiting Pfeiffer to a 4-0 win over Catawba in men’s soccer action on Thursday night at Frock Field. The match was the season opener for both squads.

Pfeiffer held a 6-1 edge in shot in the first half.
Knight added a pair of goals in the early stages of the second half, both on breakaways after stealing passes in the Catawba defense. The goals came in the 52nd and 64th minutes. Jeff Cannon (Lewis Center, OH) added the final goal as he headed home a cross from Nick Brindley (Northampton, ENGLAND).
