The Cabrini College Men’s Lacrosse begins their season under the direction of first-year head coach, Steve Colfer. Colfer inherits a team that has a good share of veteran leadership along with dynamite young stars.

Look for the Cavs to square off against archival Neumann and defending PAC champion Wesley for this year’s crown. Colfer will try to use the team’s defensive mindset along with ball control to stop both of these teams.

Colfer will look to his rookie players such as Mike Piccoli and Chris Boyle to make an immediate impact and see quality minutes in crunch time. With the leadership of captains Ryan, Greer,Tommy Lemieux,Brendan Muller and senior Alex Muller, Colfer will see his young team develop into a veteran unit. It also does not hurt that the Cavs will have to face tough competition early in the season against such teams as Franklin and Marshall and Western Maryland when it comes time to facing the PAC.

Colfer will also look for his team to let their opponents know whom they are facing. With a defense lead by Alex Muller, Mike Demarest, Tom Grosse and Brandon Lawler the Cavs look to apply constant pressure to the other team. Senior goalie Matt Clements will clean up the trash between the pipes. In a recent scrimmage against Hartford, four to six players of the opposing squad were carried off the field because of the ambush that Cavs had released. Colfer said, “When you play the Cavs, bumps and bruises are a given.”

On the offense side of the ball, returning leading scorer Tommy Lemieux along with seniors Brendan Muller, Ryan Greer and senior Josh Hagelin will develop a plan to keep pace with the other team while layin’ the smackdown at the same time.

Obviously the Cavs are a favorite in the PAC and that is exactly the Cavs goal for this season. Win the PAC and then go on to win the ECAC.

Colfer team is young and exciting. They should be an eye-popping team to watch and will develop a strong nucleus as the year goes on. The seniors have grown in the last four years and its now or never for them.

The first home game for the Cavs will be on March 15 at 4pm on the Upper Athletic Field against Eastern. If you got nothing to do come out and see some high octane hitting as well as some Cabrini best athletes take the field.
