Women’s Soccer 3-0 VictoryCabrini’s women’s soccer team beat Villa Julie College 3-0 on Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2003 on Cabrini’s home field.
Wednesday was the team’s first time on the grass in a while. “We have been practicing in the gym for a week and a half now,” Senior Colleen Feeney said.
Encouraging warm up music, including Rocky’s “Eye of the Tiger” set the perfect mood for the Lady Cavalier’s before it’s victory. Spectators on the sideline lucked out with ideal fall weather. Trying not to miss a play, fans covered their eyes from the direct sunlight. The game was a constant battle to the ball with Villa Julie College Mustangs.
The Lady Cavalier’s fearlessly dominated the field from right from the start of the game. Cabrini’s Mary Remoli scored the first two goals of the game. Playing forward, she used her fancy foot work, and a helpful assist from teammate Christine Jennings for the first goal. Remoli scored the second goal during an intense-physical battle involving players from both teams.
Senior captain Kelli Romano, kept communication on the field during the first half. Throughout the game, Romano won the ball at midfield. Shifting to center midfielder, Romano directed her team towards the goal. Also at midfield, freshman Emilie Greto performed as a defender as well as an offender.
Defense on both teams got stronger during the second half of the game. Christine Watson made an attempt at goal resulting in a collision on the grass with Villa Julie’s defender Danielle Rongione. Watson was persistent, and scored the third goal of the game. Villa Julie’s Colleen Baughman also put up a good fight playing tenacious defense. When Villa Julie obtained possession of the ball, and took a corner kick tension grew on the sideline. Cabrini’s goalie Mary Mower was determined to keep the ball out of the goal. The game ended in a shut out 3-0.
The Lady Cavs next game is at Neumann College, Saturday. Oct. 4.
