Brian Klazura scored in the first five minutes and Garrett Getschow and John Melcher each added a second-half tally to lead the Air Force men’s soccer team to a 3-1 victory Friday over College of Charleston at Cadet Soccer Stadium.

With the win, Air Force’s third straight, the Falcons improved to 4-1-0, while the Cougars fell to 3-2-1.

Klazura opened the scoring just 4:17 into the game with his fourth goal of the season. Zachary Modly stole the ball near midfield and passed to Getschow who found Klazura streaking behind the Cougar defense. Klazura gathered the ball and fired a shot from eight yards out past Charleston goalie Kees Heemskirk.

Getschow put the Falcons up 2-0 in the 63rd minute. Getschow took a pass from Kevin Durr before slipping a shot underneath Heemskirk for his fourth goal, and second game-winner, of the season. Melcher added AFA’s final goal in the 78th minute with a similar play, dribbling through the defense for about 30 yards before firing a point-blank shot past Heemskirk.

The only blemish on the Falcons’ slate was a penalty kick by C of C’s Ralphie Lundy that got past a diving Matt Underwood in the 83rd minute. The Cougars received the PK after Sean De Silva sent a free kick into the box and a teammate was knocked down

Next Up: The Falcons host Buffalo at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
