The men’s lacrosse team, now ranked fifteenth in the nation, continues their winning streak. Winning their eighth straight game in a row, the Cavaliers remain undefeated in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference.

On Wednesday, April 18 the men hosted the FDU Devils and head coach Pat Scarpello, former head coach of the Cavaliers. Cabrini came out on top with a final score of 16-7.

The Cavaliers came out with a lead in the first half and never looked back. The team then opened up a 14-3 lead in the second half.

Freshman business major Rich Romanelli (three goals, two assists), sophomore human resources major Scott Reimer (two goals, one assist), junior English and communication major Matt McKinney (three goals, one assist), sophomore criminal justice major B.J. Kletcheck (three goals) and freshman Casey Grugan (two goals, two assists) were the multiple goal scorers of the game.

On Saturday, April 21 the Cavaliers defeated the Montclair State University Red Devils with a final score of 7-4. Cabrini opened up with a 4-1 lead at the half with two goals from Reimer and one each from Kletcheck and Pat Grenier.

In the second half, Reimer added two more goals and then fed to Grugan to add another.

With these two victories, the Cavaliers improved to 11-2 overall and 5-0 in the PAC for the season. The team is ranked fifteenth in the nation for Division III men’s lacrosse and is also ranked fourth in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III South Regional rankings.
