The men’s game looked to be off to a better start, as going into halftime the score was tied 0-0. Coker’s senior keeper Aaron Osteen/Black Mountain, NC, recorded three saves in the first half and in doing so earned the Coker College All-Time Career Saves Record with 325 saves.
In the second half, Osteen was replaced by fellow senior Brent Washburn/Barnwell, SC, and the Falcons took advantage of the change. Just eight minutes into the half Scott Slusher found the back of the net for the games first goal. Five minutes later it would be Mark Nerkowski who would score, with an assist from Davi Lorenzo. Lorenzo scored a goal of his own ten minutes later, when put in a rebound off Washburn. Slusher would get the fourth and final goal of the night off a penalty kick with just five minutes remaining in the game.
Osteen and Washburn combined for seven saves in the game, while Pfeiffer’s David Sheridan recorded three saves.
