MISENHEIMER -- Mount Olive freshman Craig Allan was in the right place at the right time for his first collegiate goal Thursday afternoon.

Allan re-directed a loose ball in front of the net five minutes into overtime and gave the Trojans a 1-0 victory over Conference Carolinas in-state rival Pfeiffer University.

On the women's side, the Falcons punched in three second-half goals during a 4-1 win.

MOC freshman keeper Nick Bernsdorf logged six saves for his first collegiate shutout. Allan's goal came after Pfeiffer keeper Zach Liles saved a shot by teammate John Kwennah. The ball bounced in front of the goal and Allan tucked it away.

The Trojans (2-4-0 overall, 2-1 CC) won their second straight league outing.

Ellie Barnes staked the MOC women to an early lead in the 10th minute when her shot deflected off a Pfeiffer defender and into the goal.

The Falcons (3-3-0) tied the game in the 38th minute and went on to capture their second conference win of the season.

The Trojan women fell to 1-5-1 overall and 1-2 in league play.

Mount Olive plays host to Erskine (S.C.) College on Saturday. Kickoff is 4 p.m. at Amon Field, with the men's game following at 7.
