The final game of the Lady Cavs’ post-season came in the form of a 6-1 loss to College of Misericordia on Saturday Nov. 2.

The game was close up to its midpoint. Misericordia scored its first goal four minutes into the game. Cabrini answered back with a goal only seven minutes later scored by sophomore right halfback Julie Smith. The first half ended with Misericordia up by one goal.

Senior left inner, and tri-captain of the squad, Megan Chipman said, “It was a great first half, we played so well. As the second half started it seemed we all went our separate ways and stopped playing as a team.”

In the second half, Misericordia freshman Kim Daniel scored two goals in two minutes, giving them a 4-1 lead. “After they scored their fourth goal, coach called a time out intending to motivate us,” Chipman said. Following the time out, Misericordia scored their final two goals in the remaining minute of play.

Smith said, “Not once during the game did anyone give up, but it was noticeable that as they were scoring, our momentum was lost.” The team feels it was a hard fought game although they agree that the scoreboard does not reflect that.

Junior mid-fielder, Jody Sodano said, “They scored most of their goals on fast breaks, and their second to last goal was on a penalty shot.”

The Lady Cavs have a very positive outlook on next year. The team is graduating two seniors and returns nine out of 11 starters.

Smith said, “We could not have had better leadership from our two senior captains, Megan Chipman and Colleen Connor. We all started the season off slow, but they were there to pick things up. And our freshmen girls are great. They have such tremendous talent and bring so much to the table.”
