The field hockey team lost last Wednesday, 2-1, playing at home against Philadelphia University’s Lady Rams. The loss takes the Lady Cavs to 3-3 in the PAC.

Cabrini’s, Annmarie Smith, a junior from Cardinal O’Hara, was so into the game, played awesome defense, and scored the first goal to put the home team in the lead at 1-0. Later in the game, the Lady Rams came back when Heather McGaurn, a senior, scored their first goal. The game was tied at 1-1 throughout the majority of the game. Both teams used so much energy to keep this game going, and with only 27 seconds left in the game Philadelphia’s, McGaurn, scored the final goal to win the game.

Their overall record is now 4-9 and their PAC record is 3-3. Cavalier head coach Jackie Neary is in her sixth season with a total record of 69 wins and 48 losses. This team has some good qualities. Neary says the team is turning it around. “They had such a rough start,” Neary said. “They come on so strong, and they didn’t fold.”

Even though they lost this game, they still showed positive signss. They started the game off winning 1-0, and the Lady Rams cameback. Philadelphia University is a division II team playing Cabrini, which is a division III team. Neary said: “The girls are playing it up. Hopefully on Saturday, we can beat Alvernia.”

Neany said, “Holly Orlando had an outstanding game along with Kerry Devaney, Julie Smith, and all the teamwork from the rest of the team.”
