The men’s soccer team’s preparations for a Pennsylvania Athletic Conference championship were shattered on Saturday, Oct. 28 against Miseriordia. They have reached their goal in having a .500 record, with an actual record of 12-6 at this point. The players “business-like attitude” could not withstand Misericordia’s relentless strike.
Coach Glen Jaskelewicz with his assistants Rob Dallas and Matt Student have been noble leaders thoughout the season. This is the first year for both assistants at Cabrini. The team is lead by two captains, junior Barry Magagna and senior exercise science major Brent Benner. Both captains have earned their title through leading the Cavs through many victories, during their time here at Cabrini.
Benner has accomplished many goals throughout his career in soccer. He has taken over the overall points and goals- scored lead in the PAC. Benner was also named PAC player of the week. He also received the title Eastern College Athletic Conference player of the week this past week.
“He has been on quite a tear and is truly going out in style
during the remainder of his senior year,” Jaskelewicz said.
Other players who have succeeded this year are junior Mike McDevitt and freshman Jason Moran. McDevitt has moved into third place in the PAC points list, while Moran moved into the top 10 PAC points.
Even after a heartbreaking loss in overtime to Arcadia last Saturday, the team has bounced back very quickly. They have won three very important games in a row last week. They played Albright College Oct. 17, 4-3. Then on Oct. 21, they held their ground and beat Marywood on their home turf, 5-1. On Wednesday, Oct. 25, they traveled to Maryland to beat Hood College, 6-2.
