Cabrini men soccer players were grinning like a crew of adventurers who had sunken a mighty fleet, following a 2-0 conquest over the team from College Misericordia Saturday, Sept. 22

“We dominated,” screamed sophomore defender Michael Ferrise.

The team held off attempts to keep a deadlocked no-score through the first quarter. Then, number 9, Captain Michael Braun, or Brauny as he is called, made the first goal of the game, following halftime. Brauny’s goal raised the intensity on the field and cries of “Go White,” could be heard traveling from home fans across the green.

The crowd on the stands leaned in towards the grass as time in the second half moved on. Will Nagle, a Cavalier fan and former high-school varsity soccer player, commented, “The first half was a little shaky. The team is doing better now.”According to Rennie, the game should be a boost for the new team goalie’s confidence. Cabrini lost James Beck, junior goalie, due to a bone injury earlier in the season. Replacing him is freshman Brad Rink.

“I’m going to step it up for my team.” Rink said.

Coach Doug Meder, following the victory, said that Cabrini was lucky.

Opponents from Misericordia are ranked number one in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference, PAC preseason poll. Cabrini’s team also had a tough season start. They have tied once, lost four times and won twice. Coach Meder says however, that the team is on its way up.

Misericordia and Cabrini team athletes are looking forward to playing each other, should they meet in the PAC semi-finals. Michael Kern of Misericordia said that if his team faces Cabrini again, Misericordia is going to “come together to win it.”

Cabrini Cavaliers respond that they are ready and fired up for the next challenge.
