The Cabrini women’s soccer team faced off against Philadelphia Biblical University on Saturday, Sept. 24 and came out with a 3-0 victory at Edith Robb Dixon Field.

Coming off a tough loss to Centenary last week, the Lady Cavs outshot the Crimson Eagles by a remarkable 16-2 margin in the victory.  Goals by junior forward Alex Tralie in minute seven, freshman forward/midfielder Devon Miller in minute 30 and senior midfielder Sammy Thompson in minute 60 pushed the Cavaliers over Philly Bible.

Throughout the entire game, junior goalie Maddy Edwards was on her toes and recorded her fourth shutout in seven games.  The team’s defense was stellar and Edwards was able to stop PBU’s two shots in the game.

Through seven games this season, Tralie leads the team with three goals and six points. Senior forward/midfielder Kara Hinkelmon has two goals and six points and Miller is third on the team in scoring with two goals and four points.

Early in the season, it is evident that the team is working well together and communicating effectively.

“We do really well at working together as a team,” Hinkelmon said. “We are really close on and off the field so that helps when we are on the field playing with each other.  To me, us being close helps us to be a better team in the long run.”

The Lady Cavs are now 3-3-1 this season and hold a 2-1 record in conference play. With a lot of the season still left to play, the team needs to stay focused in order to concentrate on their main goal, which is to win a CSAC title.

“The team looks great, we have a lot of potential and skill and look forward to winning many games the rest of the season,” freshman midfielder Melissa Scanzano said. Scanzano is a standout freshman who is getting significant minutes this season and has started six out of seven games for the Cavs.

“Our first goal is to make the playoffs and our second is to win a few games and make it to the finals,” sophomore back/midfielder Marykate McCann said. “I think this year could be a really big year for our team.  We have a lot of young talent and our seniors are stepping up.”

The Lady Cavs’ next four games will all take place at home at Edith Robb Dixon Field. The Cavs faced Swarthmore College on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at home and fell to the Garnet by a score of 2-0.

“I’m very excited,” Hinkelmon said before the Cavs faced off against Swarthmore. “All we need to do is to work on some set plays and give and go’s. Tweaking just a few things to make us better will be in our favor for our next game.”

This week the team plays Washington College on Thursday, Sept. 29.
