All season long, Pfeiffer University’s offense fueled its success.

Junior forward Nathan Regis, who led the nation in goals with 32, was the catalyst for the potent attack. Regis tallied two goals in the championship match of the Division II men’s soccer tournament, and the Falcons captured a 4-0 win over California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, on Dec. 5 in Pensacola, Florida.

Regis and teammate Jaime  Siaj each scored only a few minutes into the final to lead the Falcons to their school-record 25th win of the year. The Falcons also became only the third Division II men’s soccer team to go unbeaten and untied en route to the national title.

Pfeiffer finished the season ranked second in average goals per game (3.48), with Regis spearheading the attack.

“My teammates are very talented and selfless,” Regis said after the championship match. “They don’t hog the ball at all. They distribute the ball and try to set up their teammates. Once you share the ball, it always gets back to you when it needs to. As a forward, you just have to keep making runs and distributing the ball, and everything will come to you to finish.”
