The Cabrini women’s field hockey team took on the Cedar Crest College Eagles on Oct. 8th. The Eagles proved not to be much of a task for the Lady Cavs as they torched Cedar Crest 8-0. This is Lady Cavs first shutout of the season.
There was a much bigger headline, as Cabrini was apart of the Play 4 a Cure initiative like many teams across the country. The game raised money for breast cancer research and awareness. The Cavs dressed up in pink cleats and pink accessories in honor of the cause for game.
The Cavaliers certainly didn’t disappoint, as Sophomore Kerry Anne Farrell started off the massacre with a goal not even three minutes into the game. Just under four minutes later Karlie Gruccio scored a goal of her own. Senior Erin McLaughlin notched her sixth goal of the year to give Cabrini a 3-0 lead only eight minutes into the game.
Farrell found her second goal of the day assisted by Sophomore Jen Webb. Farrells goal marks her CSAC Conference leading 11th goal of the season. Senior Stephanie Toomey ended the first half with her first goal of the night giving the Cavs a 5-0 halftime lead.
To start the second half the Cavaliers were not complacent as Junior Kylie McDevitt scored her first goal of the season giving the Cavs a 6-0 lead. For the second time, Toomey notched a goal assisted by sophomore Tiffany Phillips. Sophomore Meghan Loughman scored her second goal of the year icing the score and giving Cabrini an 8-0 win.
The Cavaliers dominated the statistics as they outshot the Eagles 22-3 with 19 of the 22 shots being on goal. With their third consecutive win, the Cavaliers advance to 5-6 on the year with a CSAC record of a perfect 3-0 thus far; putting the Cavaliers in first place in the CSAC.
The Cavaliers travel to Gwynedd-Mercy University on Oct. 16th, as the two squads have a rematch of last year’s CSAC Championship game. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
