The men’s soccer team met with Marywood University and recorded a tough 1-0 loss. The game took place at 1 p.m. on Cabrini’s own Edith Robb Dixon Field. Before the game the cavalier’s celebrated their seven senior’s final home match of the season. Among the seven were Ryan Cerrato, C.J. Doherty, Joe Halbherr, Gabe Kuhn, Brett Lockbaum, Brendan Magerr and Eric Nowicki.
In the first half both teams came out with a shared enthusiasm, though the energy would only pay off for Marywood. The Pacer’s jumped ahead 1-0 when senior Christian Lawlor rebounded a ball from the Cavaliers net and drove it home. From there both teams would have scoring chances, but all would be stopped by the opposing defense.
The second half continued in the same fashion. Marywood’s four shots were all stopped by the opposing defense, as were Cabrini’s five. Both Nowicki and Justin Sunseri, of Marywood, recorded three saves in the half, and four on the day.
Of Cabrini’s ten shots, Freshman Bobby Kane lead the team with three.
The team’s loss brought them to a 6-2 record in the Colonial States Athletic Conference standings.
They go back at it Tuesday with an away game to Cairn University in Langhorne, Pa. to close out the regular season. The match is set to begin at 3 p.m.
