The men’s soccer team defeated Keystone College on Saturday, Oct. 31 with a final score of 5-0. The Cavaliers’ win contributed to their seventh consecutive unbeaten streak.

Not only did the Cavaliers go into the game with a positive outlook, they also went in acknowledging the team’s nine seniors.

With the start of the whistle, the Cavs kept an impressive offense against the Keystone Giants. Within less than six minutes, senior midfielder Brian Raffle scored the first goal of the game with an assist from senior midfielder Brian Moran.

Less than two minutes after the first goal, senior forward Mike Giunta scored the second goal for the Cavs after receiving a pass from senior forward Justin McCall.

After half time, junior forward Steve Reynolds acted on a pass from sophomore Eric Collins to supply the team its third goal.

Brian Johnson, senior goalkeeper, contributed greatly to the Cavaliers’ victory during the first half. Making one save, Johnson kept the Keystone Giants off the scoreboard during 45 minutes of action.

Senior midfielder Evan Hanauer added to the defeat with a goal from an assist by Moran.

Within only five minutes left in the second half, the Cavs earned their fifth and final goal by Raffle, who tallied his second goal of the team.

Following intermission, the Cabrini Cavs remained determined and confident to shut out the Keystone Giants.

Mike Viscarielle continued the defeat during the second half with three save, making it impossible for the Giants to get on the scoreboard.

The win was a great way to end the 2009 regular season and the game showed the dedication of the team’s nine seniors on senior day.

The senior class has been a part of 57 victories during their four years playing for Cabrini.

“It was a good end to the regular season. It was an important win and we can use the momentum going into the playoffs,” Moran, senior history major, said.

On Thursday, Nov. 5, the semifinal round games will be held, followed by the championship match on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Immaculata University.
