Winless in its first five games, the men’s soccer team got its first win against local rival Widener on Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2003. The only point of the match came early in the start of the second half. Freshman Jeffrey Carman was assisted by junior midfielder Sean Dugan.
The referees were kept busy, dealing out two red cards during the game. Carman, the lone goal scorer of the match, was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct late in the second half. Assistant coach Bill Dorita was also ejected after arguing the call.
“We were all focused on just getting a win,” sophomore Casey Marshall said.” Head Coach Doug Meder said, “I changed the line up around for the Widener game.” The team had played its previous five games in a 4-4-2 formation, however for the Widener game they used a 4-3-3, putting more forwards upfront. When asked what could be attributed to Cabrini’s first win, Meder said, “we played better as a team, the captains led the way, and freshman Jeff Carman buried the goal to win the game,”
Cabrini will take this momentum into this Saturday’s home game against College of Misericordia at 1 p.m.
