SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba held off a late Pfeiffer rally to top the visiting Falcons 13-11 in men’s lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at Shuford Stadium. The Catawba Indians even their record at 2-2, while Pfeiffer falls to 0-3.

Pfeiffer put home two goals to close the quarter then scored three in the opening six minutes of the fourth to make it 11-9. Kyle Barna had three of those goals.
Liam Lynch (Marietta, Ga./Pope) stopped the run at the 7:59 mark, but Barna and Jared Nelson closed the gap to 12-11 with 4:29 left. Cook got the final goal, with 3:27 remaining, just as Catawba was killing off a penalty.
