The Cabrini women’s lacrosse team remained undefeated in the Colonial States Athletic Conference after holding off rival Scranton University on Tuesday, March 24 for a nail-biting victory at the Edith Robb Dixon Field.

The final score was 8-7.

Junior Erin Nollen registered a season high four goals, while junior netminder Kate Schmid earned nine saves.

“Schmid came up big for us down the stretch, she was a beast in the goal,” junior mid-fielder Kellie Levy said.

Two of Nollen’s goals put the Cavaliers at a comfortable four goal lead, but Scranton clawed their way back each time.

“We knew going into this game we were going to have to be prepared. They are a good solid team, so we all knew going into it the defense had to work hard and the offense had to score goals,” freshman offender Jacqueline McDermott said.

Sophomore attack Kristen Vernon brought in a season-high four points, having a pair of goals and assists.

“They were a strong team but we came out stronger and came up big when it counted,” Vernon said.

Senior captain midfielder Anna Scholl supplied the Cavs with a goal and assist.

McDermott scored the eigth and final goal for Cabrini, making the score 8-5 which proved to be the game winner.

On Saturday, March 19, the women earned a 20-3 win over Cedar Crest College at the Edith Robb Dixon Field.

“This win was a big team effort. The defense worked hard and the offense did what it was supposed to do to get the ball in the goal,” junior defender Monica Souders said.

The women’s offense had 11 different scorers to help with the victory.

“It shows that we are a very versatile team with a deep bench when we have so many different scorers. Everyone on the team adds something and are important if we are going to win the conference,” junior attack Amanda Alexandrowicz said.

Four lady Cavs registered four points.

Junior attack Danielle Rothermel totaled a team-high four points on four goals, while Alexandrowicz followed with four points on three goals and one assist.

McDermott had four points on two goals and two assists.

Senior midfielder Lauren Iannece added in a goal and three assists to give her four points as well.

“It was great to see all of us come out onto the field and have a

good game. We have worked hard these past few months and it’s all coming together and working out. We just have to keep this streak going,” junior mid-fielder Kellie Levy said.

Nollen and sophomore attack Jamie O’Hanlon each had three points.

Nollen had three goals and O’Hanlon had one goal and two assists.

Levy added two goals for two points.

Nollen and Alexandrowicz went into half time leading the team with three goals each closing the half with a score of 16-1.

“Defense wins games and the defense is always working hard to improve their game. Everything really came together on Saturday. It was a great win,” Nollen, communication major, said.

Souders led the team with five ground balls.

Senior defender Christina Romano and sophomore defender Andrea Bialon weren’t far behind, each recording four.

Goalkeeper Kate Schmid had three saves in goal and Gianna Porretta closed out the second half with three saves.

“Schmid has really worked hard to come back from a knee injury and it’s great having her in goal; she keeps the defense relaxed and the offense confident,” O’Hanlon said.
