The men’s lacrosse team is keeping up their motivation by continuing their undefeated season in the CSAC. Taking a 23-4 win against Marywood, the Cavaliers earned its ninth-straight win in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.
Casey Grugan, junior business administration major and Scott Reimer, senior business administration and human resource major, led the team to its big victory.
“It was good to beat Marywood the way we did. We have been getting better everyday and it’s all starting to come together,” Reimer said.
Reimer scored six more goals to add to his record of being the all-time leading scorer in goals. He scored his first goal in eight minutes of the game.
“It’s nice to be the leading scorer, but I am only the leading scorer because I am surrounded by great players,” Reimer said. “Everyone on my team gives me the ability to score and they are the real reason that I have been as successful as I have been in my four years at Cabrini.”
Grugan and Reimer have been supplying the offensive spark for the Cav’s.
Both Grugan and Reimer have been consistant in the scoring category.
Grugan finished the day with three goals and three assists.
The second goal that Grugan scored was with 42 seconds remaining in the third period.
With that goal it was his 79th point in the season.
“We all have been working hard this season as a team to get big things accomplished. Individuals can score goals but its the team that wins the big games,” Grugan said.
Grugan now has the second-longest consecutive points streak and also is in second-place all-time on Cabrini Career’s list in assists.
“It was great to get a win to conclude the regular season and going undefeated in the CSAC,” Grugan said. “Everyone played well even though we got off to a slow start.”
The Cavaliers took a 4-1 lead after the first period.
By the second half they made the spark turn into a fire by making the killing even worse and making the score 11-4.
Cabrini finished the contest with a 12-0 run, with great help from Grugan and Reimer putting the ball in the back of the net.
This win helps the men’s lacrosse team improve its all time record to 24-4 on its home field.
“Our four losses that we suffered this year came from very competitive teams outside of our conference. We need to take each game one at a time and work had during practice to win the CSAC and eventually continue our streak to the NCAA,” Grugan said.
Along with this win; this is now the 86th straight win in the CSAC. That includes the post season. This winning streak has been going on since 2001.
It has been 71 straight games the men’s lacrosse team still remain unbeaten during the regular season play.
“Our team goal has always been playing as a team and never getting away from that,” Grugan said. “We also would like to go farther than any other Cabrini team has gone in the NCAA tournament.”
The Cavs will pick up play on Wednesday, April 29, in the CSAC tournament against Gwynedd-Mercy. The winner of that game will then play in the championship on Saturday, May 2.
