Overtime Run Ends For Men's Lacrosse in 10-9 Loss to #7 Pfeiffer

MATTHEWS, NC -- Elliot Gilbert scored just under two minutes into overtime as seventh-ranked Pfeiffer survived for a 10-9 win over Catawba in men’s lacrosse action on Friday night at the Matthews Sportsplex.  The Falcons improve to 8-1 with the win, while the Catawba Indians fall to 6-5.

Catawba opened strong and led the Falcons 7-2 at the break.  Steven Ridolfo (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Gettysburg) scored all three of his goals over a three and a half minute span in the second quarter to help the Indians to a 5-1 lead. 

Pfeiffer quickly rallied in the second half.  The Falcons got within 7-5 at the 9:23 mark when Spencer Allen tallied the third Pfeiffer goal in a span of two and half minutes.  Gilbert tied it with just four seconds left in the quarter.

The Falcons went on to score the first seven goals of the half as Tucker Hammock and Allen put in fourth-quarter goals to give Pfeiffer a 9-7 lead with 10:05 left.  Catawba responded on goals from Alex Dantzler (Holly Springs, NC/Holly Springs HS) and Ty Sellers (St. John's, FL/Bartram Trail HS) to level the contest at 9-9 with six minutes remaining.

Catawba won the overtime face-off, but Pfeiffer forced a turnover.  After an initial shot by Hammock was wide, Gilbert netted his third goal of the night to end it at the 2:09 mark of overtime.

Gilbert had the three goals and an assist to help rally Pfeiffer.  Hammock had two goals and two assists.  Ridolfo had three goals for the Indians.  Trevor Sieracki (Austin, TX/Anderson HS) followed with two goals and an assist, while Adam Hebert scored a goal with two helpers.

Pfeiffer held a 41-33 edge in shots, including a 16-3 advantage in the big third quarter for the Falcons.  Pete Wesselman (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Stevenson) had a dozen saves for Catawba.  Hayden Kirk made nine stops for Pfeiffer.

Catawba returns to South Atlantic Conference action next Saturday as the Indians travel to Coker for a 4 p.m. contest.
