With what can only be described as a painful loss, the fourth ranked women’s basketball team lost their game on Wednesday night, Feb. 19 with a score of 68-45 against the Alvernia Lady Crusaders.

This recent loss gives the team a 13-12 record overall, and a 12-4 record in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference.

Two of the team’s starters could not play in the game, which made it difficult for the Lady Cavs. In the beginning of the first half, they were down 8-0 before they finally scored.

Forward Jen Skursky, said, “We just came out really flat that game and we got into a hole and by the time we got our feet and back into the game it was just too late. But I think this may motivate us to play harder in the playoffs so that we can get a second chance to see [Alvernia] and show them what we are really about.”

Alvernia is in the northern division and Cabrini is in the southern, so they only meet once a year.

By half time, the Lady Cavaliers trailed 40-17.

Guard, Amy Richetti, said, “We didn’t play against Alvernia like we know how to.”

With just four minutes and fifty nine seconds left in the game, a certain Lady Cavalier shot on her own net and was fouled at the same time. There were 10 fouls for Cabrini and seven for Alvernia in the second half.
