The Cabrini College men’s soccer struggles continue as they lose three straight after a tough loss 2-1 in the final minute to Alvernia University in the last game of the Eagle Road Classic.
After being held scoreless in their last two games against Rutgers-Camden and Lebanon Valley College, the Cavs were looking to come out and strike first.
The Cavaliers did just that as they scored in the 11th minute, as senior Brett Lockbaum crossed the ball to sophomore Boomer Steigelman for his first goal of the 2013 season.
Cabrini’s lead was short lived as Alvernia’s R.J. Fisher, struck back with a goal of his own just three minutes later.
Neither team could break through and score for majority of the game. There were many opportunities but none were converted by either team.
It was looking like the Cavs were headed into their third overtime this season when Alvernia had one last offensive push in the 89th minute of the contest. With just 70 seconds left, a pass from Alvernia was deflected off of a Cabrini defender right to the feet of R.J. Fisher who finished the shot for his second goal of the night and propelled Alvernia to 2-1 lead.
The Cavaliers managed to generate one more corner in the final 10 seconds of the game and one final shot, but it was wide.
In the contest, Cabrini was outshot 8-5 with four being on target and forcing Alvernia’s goalies Matt wells and David Giannini make three saves combined.
The Cavaliers are back at Edith Robb Dixon Field where they will host DeSales University Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m .
