Frustration. The word rang in College Misericordia’s ears on Saturday, April 4, as the Cabrini men’s lacrosse team defeated the Cougar’s 23-4.
Throughout the entire first quarter and almost the entire second quarter, the Cavaliers did not allow the Cougar’s a shot on goal. It was not until late in the second quarter, with three minutes to go, that Misericordia got a shot on goal.
“The defense did outstanding,” Cabrini head coach Steve Colfer said. “They pounced on the ball as soon as it got to midfield and got it to the offense.”
This season has been a season full of injuries for the Cavaliers. The game against Misericordia gave the players getting over injuries a chance to play.
We have been bit by the injury bug this season,” Colfer said. “A lot of our key guys are injured; they got a chance to play on Saturday.”
The game also was the beginning of a winning streak for Cabrini, with the Cavaliers winning its last two games and outscoring its opponents 43- 4.
“It is the start of a nice winning streak,” Colfer said. “The team played well together, they did everything they were asked of. They capitalized on the other team’s mistakes and played well throughout.”
The men’s lacrosse team will next play Shenandoah University on Saturday, April 12 at 2 p.m.
