Starting off the season winless in its first two games, the Cabrini men’s soccer team has now gone undefeated in its last three matches.

Losing to Swarthmore College and DeSales University by a goal a piece, the Cavaliers won their next two games against California Technical Institute and Alvernia College.

California Technical Institute traveled out east to play Cabrini. The teams played at Dittmar Field through intermittent rain and storms. Cabrini held control of the match earning a shutout win of 9-0.

The first goal of the match came off a corner kick from senior defensive midfielder, Anthony Pepe, who managed to bend the ball around the goal posts into the back of the net.

Cabrini then went on to put the game well out of reach scoring eight more unanswered goals. This was their highest margin of victory this season.

The Cavs earned its first conference victory over Alvernia College 2-0. Sean Dugan, senior midfielder, scored first with a tough angle shot into the far corner. Brent Benner, junior midfielder, scored the games final tally in the second half. Dugan said, “Over the last couple of years we have been in contention for fourth place in the playoffs competing with Wesley and Alvernia Colleges, so it’s a big win against a team with playoff potential.”

Rounding out its first five games, the Cavs tied visiting Franklin and Marshall College. The first half belonged to F & M, who put up two goals taking the early 2-0 lead going into halftime. The Cavaliers rallied to knot the score at two goals aside. The first goal for Cabrini came off a header from, junior forward Nick Fenton. The tying goal came from Dugan with only 23 seconds left in regulation. “We had confidence in the players on the field and we knew we were going to win. Our midfielders and forwards thought we owed to the defense in the second half. We have great freshmen who are playing critical roles, but it all starts with great practices,”
