The Cabrini College women’s field hockey team suffered their fourth consecutive loss on Tuesday afternoon against the Delaware Valley College Aggies, 3-2. This away game brings the Cavaliers’ season record to 1-5.

They first scored within the initial eight minutes. Senior, Erin McLaughlin, crossed the ball to sophomore, Kerry Farrell during a corner, giving Farrell her sixth goal for the season.

The Aggies answered back with a goal of their own four minutes later and proceeded to score twice more in the following seven minutes.

Delaware Valley kept control of the ball for the remainder of the half, leaving the halftime score at 3-1.

Fifteen minutes into the second half, McLaughlin found Farrell open at the net once more, bringing the Aggies lead to a single goal.

This gave the Cavaliers momentum and they led the rest of the half; more shots on goal, more penalty corners and more possession time. In the second half, the girls had 11 penalty corners, 11 shots on goal and had possession for roughly 27 minutes of the 35-minute half.

Despite their hard work, the final score remained at 3-2 Delaware Valley.

Senior goalkeeper, Genevieve Paulin made seven saves on Tuesday.

The Cavaliers will be working towards a win tomorrow, Friday night in Chester, PA against Widener University. The game start time is 7 p.m.
