The women’s soccer team took victory over Neumann University with a 2-0 win. The victory contributed to their sixth consecutive win for the lady Cavaliers.
The team solidified that they are one step closer to the Colonial States Athletic Conference Championship.
Scoring the only two goals for Cabrini was senior forward Sabina DeGisi, who broke her 50 goal mark last week. Although the team won, the players did not feel like it was an easy victory.
“The win was not easy. Neumann is a good team and very physical. We knew going into the game that we’d have to step up how we play and try to put them away early,” DeGisi said.
Senior mid-fielder Jenna Laufenberg was among many of the team members that assisted DeGisi in her two goals.
“Going into it, we knew Neumann was going to be a physical game. We played really well in the second half and were able to come out with a win,” Laufenberg said.
Sophomore Sammy Thompson and junior Annmarie Kolla were among some of the Cavaliers whose assists aided the win. In addition to those players, sophomore forward Kara Hinkelmon had five different shots on goal.
Maddy Edwards, freshman goalie, also helped the Cavaliers.
“As a team I believe we prepare for all of our games very well. We knew going into the game that we needed to win and we needed to put everything we had out on the field. The whole team played amazing against Neumann and in doing so it wasn’t such a challenge for us,” Edwards said.
Edwards saved every shot on goal and has improved for only being a freshman and newcomer to the team.
“I believe that I have grown up more since the beginning of the season because of the team we have. We are a very close team and we love bonding together,” Edwards said.
The team will travel to the Philadelphia Biblical University on Thursday, Oct. 22, which will help them advance one step closer to the CSAC championship. The game is scheduled for 4 p.m.
The team agrees that they can take home the CSAC championship.
“We definitely have a shot of winning the whole thing. With the way we are playing right now, we can win a championship. We just have to go out every game and give everything that we have,” Edwards said.
Other members of the team agree with Edwards.
“I expect to keep winning; if we keep playing the way we are, then we can beat any team that crosses our path. We have the championship in sight and we are not backing down,” DeGisi said.
