LaGrange won its fourth straight game, blanking visiting Pfeiffer 1-0 in a USA South contest. The Panthers upped their season record to 9-4 overall and 4-3 in conference play.

It was Senior Day for eight Panthers: Cory Aycock, Adam Curry, Nick Huberty, Blake Konans, Connor Liney, Jonathan Mann, Matthew Morton, and Qua Tucker. The players were honored in a pre-game ceremony.

The Panthers got the game's only goal midway through the first half. Jude McEvoy sent a crossing pass to Errick Sturm, who slipped it past goalkeeper David Chavarria. In the second half, LC had a goal taken off the board because of an offsides call. Both teams finished with 10 shots. Aycock had to make only two saves to record his third shutout of the season.

The Panthers host Maryville on Sunday in a USA South game at 1 p.m.
