The Lady Cavs took to Edith Robb Dixon Field on Tuesday, Oct. 4, to play more than just a game.

For the second year in a row, Cabrini is one of hundreds of schools nationwide to participate in Play 4 the Cure, a campaign that raises awareness and money for breast cancer. A number of schools, ranging from middle school to collge, participate in this annual event.

Proceeds from the campaign will go to both the Susan G Komen for the Cure Foundation as well as the American Cancer Society. Prior to the game, the Lady Cavs wore pink shirts to support the cause. Throughout the month of October, the team will continue to wear pink warm-up shirts, bracelets and other apparel to bring awareness to breast cancer.

As for the game, the Cavaliers picked up their fourth win in their last five games after defeating Wilkes University by a score of 2-0.

The Cavs used two first-half goals by Lindsey Atzert and Lauren Alessi to pave the way for their third team shutout of the year. Atzert tallied her second goal of the season while Alessi’s tally was her fourth goal this year. Alessi and Atzert combined for six of Cabrini’s eight shots in the game.

Freshman goalkeepr Genevieve Paulin made one save in the game while Wilkes University goalkeeper Lindsey Davenport was forced to make six stops.

The Cavs hold a 5-4 record this season as they prepare to face Widener University on Saturday, Oct. 8, in Chester, Pa.
