MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – A pair of second-half goals sent the Georgia College soccer team (1-2) to defeat in the squad's 2013 home opener, 2-0 to Pfeiffer University (2-3) Friday night.

After a scoreless first half where the Bobcats out-shot the Falcons 9-6, the first goal came just 5:26 into the second frame.

Brae Buster netted her second score of the year after a pass from Kayla Rodriguez.

The Falcons pushed it further out of reach in the 62nd minute, when a cross from Sarah Yates ricocheted off a Bobcat defender into the net for an own goal. 

The Bobcats out-shot the Falcons 16-13, and had five corner kicks to Pfeiffer's three.

Jessica Catapano (Alpharetta, Ga.) made five saves on the night, while Kate Halligan had the nine-save shutout. 

The Bobcats were led by Ashley Veilleux (Monroe, Ga.) and Cayce Hamilton (Duluth, Ga.) in shots, each player tallying three.
