It was another win for the Cavaliers on Saturday, March 28, when the men’s lacrosse team defeated Centenary College.

The No. 15 team outshot Centenary with a 21-8 win.

So far this season, Head Coach Steve Colfer has lead the team undefeated in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.

In the nine years Colfer has been coaching, the team has won 67 straight contests in the regular season.

Leading the team in scoring on Saturday was junior attackman Casey Grugan.

He had seven points, scoring two goals he paired with five assists.

“I try to create situations as much as possible so I can get my teammates to become more of a scoring threat. There are a lot of talented players on the team so it does not matter who I am passing the ball to, the whole team really pulls together on the field,” Grugan said.

Grugan is in need of just eight points to reach the 200-point achievement in his career and second this season.

“It feels great to know that I am closing in on 200 points for my career,” Grugan said. “Im not going to let that get to my head though, so I am just going to play one game at a time and if it happens, just let take place.”

If he accomplishes this, he will be only the third Cabrini player to do so, senior Scott Reimer is one of them.

Reimer and sophomore midfielder Paul Skulski each had five points.

Skulski scored two goals and three assists, while Reimer had five goals and increased his program-best mark to 187 in 62 career games played.

The net minders shared duty in the win. Senior goalkeeper Kevin Chenoweth totaled two saves in just over 30 minutes. Senior goalkeeper Bobby Chambers had three saves.

Winning 10 of his 12 draws was senior face-off specialist Kevin Fahey.

“I feel bad for other CSAC teams when we embarrass them on their home field,” senior business administration major Fahey said.

The men’s lacrosse team held a 22-5 advantage versus Centenary and has won more face-offs than their opponent for the eighth time in nine games this season.

“It was our best shooting day we had the whole season,” junior elementary education major Mark Hamilton said.

Freshman attackman Brian Hill and sophomore midfielder Dan Terenick each gained two points on two goals.

Senior midfielder B.J. Kletcheck, sophomore midfielder Jordan Coeyman and freshman midfielder Joe Arrell each scored one goal and one helper.

The Cavaliers were winning 11-2 at halftime, part of the reason was because of a 7-0 run in the second quarter.

“Our goal as to get better throughout, some areas still need work and other areas we did well,” assistant coach Brian Felice said.

By the middle of the second half the men had a 15-point lead. Giving freshman defenseman Conor Martin the opportunity to score his first career goal in the fourth quarter.

“It was great to get a second in-conference win,” Felice said. “Centenary has a good up and coming program, I’m happy the guys didn’t look past them.”
