The men’s soccer team was disappointed again when going up against Neumann with a final score of 2-0 on Sept. 24.
The first half ended with no score but three minutes into the second half, Neumann scored. Barry Harvey, No. 14, is a sophomore for Neumann who plays both midfield and forward. He hit the back of the net to give Neumann the first point of the game. Harvey struck again five minutes later with a header that slipped past Cabrini’s goalie.
Goaltender Andrew Brady, No. 00, played all 90 minutes of the Saturday afternoon battle.
Both Cabrini and Neumann were coming off of three game losing streaks when the teams met for Neumann’s homecoming game on Sept. 24. Although, of those three games Neumann only had one PAC game while Cabrini lost to all PAC teams.
Last season Neumann finished second to last in the PAC with only three points while Cabrini ended with 13 points in fifth place. When the teams met last year, they took the game into double overtime where Cabrini’s forward, Brent Benner, scored to give Cabrini the win with a final score of 3-2. Cabrini had to face Neumann’s star goalie, Josh Williams, who came in number seven for the PAC’s leaders in saves. He totaled 64 saves at the end of the season. Neumann College allowed 43 goals last season but came in number three in the PAC for total saves with 130.
Neumann topped the list of the PAC for yellow cards last season. This year, in a game against Hood College, Neumann’s Mike Bees received one yellow card and Barry Harvey picked up a red card.
This year Neumann’s forward No. 11, John Tscherne, was named to the PAC Player of the Week Honor Roll on Sept. 12. He collected a hat trick against Marywood and already has four goals this season. Tscherne is a sophomore this year, making him one to watch this season and in upcoming years.
Cabrini goes up against Gwynedd-Mercy College on Oct. 1 for the Cavalier’s homecoming game.
