The men’s lacrosse team has completely turned around its season. Their rough start of three consecutive loses is now overshadowed by their recent streak of five straight wins. The Cavaliers now hold a record of five and three going into Saturday’s game against Pennsylvania Athletic Conference rival Wesley College.

Men’s lacrosse is undefeated in conference play with wins against Neumann College, Villa Julie College and Shenandoah University.

Their most recent win was against the Shenandoah Hornets. Traveling nearly four hours to Virginia, the men beat the Hornets by an 18-three margin. The game was originally scheduled for Sat., April 2, but due to torrential down pours of rain it was moved to Sunday where weather conditions were not much better. The game had a slow start due to extremely strong winds that kept the speed of the game at a near standstill. The Cavaliers managed to pick it up as the game progressed and take control of the game.

“The team is really starting to come together. We are learning to play more as a team then individuals for a team,” said junior midfielder Dave Barba.

Saturday promises to be the Cavalier’s toughest competition in the PAC. Last season Wesley College hosted Cabrini and nearly gave them their first conference loss in three years. This year Cabrini will host the Wolverines and try and extend their conference-winning streak.

The team has had a few setbacks though as they ripped through their schedule. The team has been without starting defensemen, Bill Cordts has been sidelined due to a stress fracture in his foot. Filling the void has been sophomore transfer Bob Tinsley. Coming from local Ridley High School, Tinsley fit right in with the team as it now has six players from Ridley.

“I knew it would take sometime to get used to different styles of play, but this team is extremely talented and I’m really happy to be a part of it,” said Tinsley.

The team has five regular season games left on the schedule. It includes two non-conference games and three PAC games. The Cavaliers will need to keep rolling on this winning steak to host the PAC playoffs.
