Cabrini men’s lacrosse team stomped on CSAC competitor, Shenandoah University, with a score of 21-1 on Sat, April 18. The Cavaliers are on a season-best six- game winning streak.

The game was played in Winchester, Va., where Cabrini extended the country’s longest conference win streak to 84 games, including the postseason. All the wins have been under the ninth-year head coach Steve Colfer, who has been coaching the Cavs since 2001.

“We absolutely dominated them. It was a great way to cap off our last regular season road game,” senior criminology major Mike Mcfarlane said.

Scott Reimer, senior attack, scored his 200th goal of his Cavaliers career against the Shenandoah Hornets. He is the all-time leader in career goals, now 205, and has become Cabrini’s first player ever to reach the 200-goal plateau. He is just six points shy of becoming the program’s leader in career points with 228.

Cabrini entered the contest with a 10-3 overall record against Shenandoah’s 5-6 overall.

“We knew our competition wasn’t going to be as good as us, but we had to focus on ourselves to get ready for the playoffs,” senior business administration major Matt Conaway said.

“The long bus ride to Virginia did not stop us from getting off to a quick start,” junior business administration major Casey Grugan said. “We put points up early and never looked back. It’s good to see everyone get involved in the game.”

In the first period, the Cavs scored seven of its 21 goals; three from Reimer and one each from Christian Burrows, Casey Grugan, Dan Terenick and B.J. Kletcheck.

In the same period, the Hornets scored its one and only goal from Joe Avveduti with 3:20 remaining. The Hornets did not see the net for the rest of the game.

The Cavaliers did though, 14 more times. In the second period, nine more goals were added to the board; three more from Reimer, two from Brian Hill and one each from Matt Conaway, Kletcheck, Grugan and Jordan Coeyman. The score after the second period was 16-1.

During the third period, goals from Coeyman and Paul Skulski bumped the score to 18-1. And the three final goals during the fourth period were from Joe Strain, Paul Levine and Coeyman.

Grugan, junior attack, has moved into the Cavaliers fifth place all time single-season points chart with 69.

The Cabrini defense held Shenandoah to just 13 shots and forced 30 turnovers. Defense was led by seniors Joe Monroe, Jeff Moore and rookie John McSorley.

Kevin Chenoweth, senior goalkeeper, made two saves in his 30 minutes of play and earned his 10th win of the season.

Cabrini’s record against Shenandoah increases to 11-1 dating back to 1999. The Hornets won the first game and have lost 11 straight ever since.

This win versus Shenandoah University now seeds the Cabrini Men’s Lacrosse team at No. 16 throughout the country.

“It was another strong win that continues to prove our dominance in the CSAC,” senior exercise science and health promotion major Guy Columbro said.
