MISENHEIMER, NC--The #2 Lees-McRae College Bobcats soccer team
improved to 13-1-1 Saturday afternoon, coming from behind to top
Pfeiffer University in Conference Carolinas action. The Bobcats
also up their conference-leading record to 7-1 while the Falcons
fall to 7-6-1 (3-3-1).
The Falcons came out flying as Renato Barboa gave the home side
the early lead finding the back of the net in the fifth minute.
The Falcons would use the momentum to take a 2-0 lead into halftime
with Mat Harris scoring in the 28th minute, as the Bobcats found
themselves trailing for the first time this season.
The nationally ranked Bobcats regrouped in the second half and
managed to get the job done, proving why they are the second ranked
team in the country. Berin Boracic struck first for the visitors,
scoring his 13th of the season just six minutes in to cut the
deficit to one. In the 72nd minute, Conference Carolinas leading
scorer Lee Squires would knot the score with his 15th of the
season, setting the stage for Boracic's game winner, and his 14th
goal of the season, in the 82nd minute.
The Bobcats will travel to Mount Olive next Saturday for a
Conference Carolinas match up slated for 4:00pm before returning
home to face Belmont Abbey on senior night October 24th.
