The women’s field hockey team lost to Gwynedd-Mercy College on the road by a score of 3-0 on Saturday, Nov. 5. The team defeated the Neumann University Knights by a score of 3-2 on Wednesday, Nov. 2, to advance to their fourth straight CSAC title game appearance.

In minute 18 of the contest against the Griffins, the Lady Cavs fell behind 1-0 after a goal by Gwynedd-Mercy’s Brook Stretch. Stretch scored again for the Griffins to give Gwynedd-Mercy a 2-0 lead at the half.

Trailing at halftime, the Lady Cavs attempted to make a comeback. Only four minutes into the second half, though, the Griffins took a 3-0 lead and held on for the victory. The Cavaliers struggled as they watched the deficit become larger.

Cabrini goalkeeper Genevieve Paulin recorded 12 saves and took the loss in the game. The Cavaliers were outshot 26-9  by the Griffins, who also had 11 corners in the game.

Junior Lindsey Atzert recorded four of Cabrini’s shots while Lauren Alessi and Stephanie Campanaro each had two shots apiece.

The Cavaliers finished the campaign with an overall record of 12-7, including a 6-1 record in CSAC play. The loss marked the end of the careers of seniors Alessi, Campanaro, Maura Gordon, Liz Krupka, Amanda Smith and Janine Zizzamia.

Had Cabrini won, it would have been their third consecutive CSAC championship.
