Cabrini women’s lacrosse battled it out on their home turf against Rosemont on Wednesday, March 14.
The team won 18-6, which was a big turn-over from their last game. The team played Ursinus on Monday, March 12 and gave it their best with a 13-14 loss in overtime.
“I was very confident going into the [Rosemont game] and just by our battle Monday night against Ursinus I knew that our team would come out on fire and ready to win and give it their best,” senior midfielder Allison Sachs said.
The team consists of 10 freshmen, seven sophomores, four juniors and eight seniors this year who are all ready for a promising season.
The seniors have many goals for their team this year but their most important is to go to the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference . “[We want to] bring back the PAC,” Sachs said.
With 18 total goals, the players were very pleased with each other and their efforts toward the win. A top freshman, Erin Nollen, scored the first goal for Cabrini as well as a second later in the game.
“Tami Scanlan, a senior defender and also my co-captain, scored a goal. It is usually unlikely for a low defender to score so we all enjoyed that when she did,” Sachs said.
Katelyn Penrose, a junior elementary education major, scored a total of four goals for the Lady Cavs as well as one assist. Jessica Wagelin and Kellie Levy each scored two goals.
Freshman history and political science major Kate Schmid defended Cabrini’s goal in the game with a total of six saves. This was Schmid’s first start in her college career.
“We dominated the entire time and had to stall the ball so we wouldn’t run the score up too much,” senior goalie Joslyn Hayes said.
With a score like 18-6 it would be hard to disagree with Hayes’ comment.
“Our team had the expectations of a win today and I have a feeling that there will be more games and there will be that same feeling as well,” Hayes said.
The team has one win and one loss so far and they are “looking forward to a great season,” Hayes said.
With the confidence of the players this year it doesn’t seem that the team will have trouble getting themselves and each other ready to give it their all.
On Tuesday, March 20, the Lady Cavs defeated Rowan University (20th rank Division III) by a score of 9-6. Penrose scored four goals to lift the Cavaliers in a non-conference game.
Cabrini’s next game is against Stevens Tech on March 22. Saturday the Lady Cavs will host Eastern March 24 at 1 p.m.
