Burchfiel's blast secures 1-0 win over Pfeiffer

The Maryville College men's soccer program advanced to 5-2 and remained undefeated in USA South action with a 1-0 win over Pfeiffer University on Friday evening on MC's home pitch.

The match remained scoreless at the intermission after Maryville outshot the Falcons 9-0 in the first half.

In the 75th minute of the second half, the Scots lofted a pass into the goalie crease. MC's Aaron Rucker headed the ball down and Jace Burchfiel collected the header in a scrum and pushed a strike into the net past Pfeiffer's keeper. Burchfiel's blast was his third of the season and the eventual game-winner.

The Scots attacked nine more times in the second half with shots. MC outpaced the Falcon attack 18-3 during the match with seven attempts on goal.
